Laptop Withdrawal


My hard drive started dying last week. There are certain noises that a hard drive should not make, and mine was making them. I backed up the hard drive, removed all personal data, and took it to the apple store.

I was thankful to get a geek girl at the genius bar. I have learned over the years that geek men either admire women who know what they are doing or they verbally pat you on the head and ignore you. I was not in the mood for the latter. The woman heard the noise and reserved a hard drive for me. A 10 minute process – score!

The call from the apple store came at 9:30am the next day. Score, I thought. Until he said, we still don’t know what is wrong. Fuck.

They ordered more parts. A system board and something else. So now I wait….and go crazy.

So no HNT for me tonight. No laptop means no software for my photos. Hell, posting this has been a bit of a pain. I’m hoping tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for me!

    You could tear it apart yourself and fix it!

    And you could always phone in your HNT–and not be dependent upon software!

    Or you could take the week off. 🙂

    That sucks. My laptop needs to be fixed. It’ll be an expensive little process so I’ve got that on hold for the time being. Thankfully, I have a netbook so I can still browse the internet. Not having my documents, pictures, music, etc accessible really sucks, though. Hope they get it fixed soon!
