Hard, Hard Drive

So my computer has been whining lately.

It started quietly enough. Quietly enough that I guess I didn't notice it right away. But for a few weeks, I've definitely noticed.

If you walked anywhere NEAR my office, you'd have noticed, too.

In my absolute technical wisdom (read that..."knowing basically nothing about the inside of a computer..") I took off the side cover and discovered that it was my hard drive.

Being frightened of losing absolutely everything I have on my computer that I have nowhere else, I took that sucker in to have it fixed.

That turned out to suck.

Not having it fixed, that turned out to rule. No, it sucked because I've been without a working computer for a WEEK! That's like having both of my hands stuck in epoxy, my pants down around my ankles, and a blindfold wrapped so tight around my eyes that they start screaming. It was miserable.

But, only a few hundred dollars (which we really don't have) later, and I've got a brand new hard drive (3x as "big" as my old one) that is SILENT, and 5x as much RAM as I had.

I'm in Heaven.

Blog Heaven.

So watch out, because I can't play harp.

But I'm back! Woo to the Hoo.

Have you ever though of spirtual healing of your 'puter? Put some of those rocks on it and see what happens.... You never know unless you try. I think Yoda said something like that.

Healing the damn thing was the only way I kept it alive for as long as I did!
