Woe, Cont.

Well, apparently the hard drive is dead. Gaaah. I am really, really, really relieved that I had the sense to back stuff like the music files and my documents up a few days ago. Considering how lax I usually am about that sort of thing, the timing, frankly, could not have been better. If, you know, there were ever a good time for your hard drive to die. Which there isn't. Regardless, I am so not looking forward to having to reinstall every damn thing. Sigh.

My friend might not have been able to revive the drive from the dead -- some things are, alas, beyond even the geekiest among us -- but he and his wife are going to be in Albuquerque on Thursday and offered to pick me up a new one while they're there. He even found one on sale! So that's something, anyway.

In the meantime, I'm still on laptop dialup here at home. I'm going to try to take that as a sign to spend less time on the internet for a couple of days, but that thought really does make me all twitchy.
