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!
