A trip to the Genius Bar at the Applpe Store later and it was off to Laptop Hospital.
Now it's back with a brand new, squeeky clean hard drive, and I get to run around reinstalling all my favorite programs. Sigh.
In more cheerful news, two good friends of mine and yours have signed on to LJ: kajafoglio and philfoglio. Kaja wonders whether there's a way to post here without having to type in html by hand, and I haven't a clue.
Say hello! Let them know why we hang out here!
And I'll try to do a bit more hanging out than I have.
