Reboot

I sit here using my new 13-inch white Macbook. Just bought it last night! Why? Well, I'd like to say that it is NOT because I dropped my old iBook going through security in the airport a few weeks ago. Not because my machine tried to electrocute me yesterday morning. Not because my machine gave me the "Hard drive? What hard drive!?!?" error during lab yesterday. I'd rather say that I'd been contemplating a new machine and that I decided to reward my new svelte self for a year of not being fat. Yup - that's my story, and I'm sticking with it.

(Incalculable thanks to Greg for talking me off the cliff and helping me to retrieve as much of my data as possible. And thanks to Carl for his physics Powerpoint slides so that losing time yesterday didn't hurt quite so much this morning.)

Yikes! Hope you were able to salvage successfully!

Scary. Losing my Heart of Gold would be tough; losing everything on the hard drive? Yargh.

Hope the new one works out!

The new one is working out, although I still have lots of software to load. Most importantly, I was able to retrieve all my docs off of the old machine. Whew!
