Apples are NOT the only fruit.
Today is not a great day though it’s no way as bad as Saturday was. Saturday was the day after my laptop’s Hard Drive decided to die without even saying goodbye first. I mean how rude!
I managed to lose EVERYTHING! Well, OK not everything but everything recently, which includes my thesis (note my entire thesis!!!), most recent photographs not yet backed-up, readings and all my business docs. So I am mad and I am sad… there is no glad….. at all.
Apple have been about as useful as tits on a bull. This is the second Apple computer that has died on me in the last 16 months. And before you even mention the words ‘back-up’, let me just say that I do. Just not every single day of the week – I mean who the hell does this??? OK, other than my stepdad who is an official computer geek.
So, I’m now writing this on a Windows machine (which btw has yet to crash on me). I’m being bounced around various Apple tech-heads who are all very un-hopeful of the prognosis though one did mention that it could probably be recovered…. for a small fee of $2500!!!
I feel like I’ve lost a limb and even though I’m embarrassed by my own reaction to all this, as anyone who uses a computer to keep their work knows, it’s your heart and soul that gets stored there.
Please spare a prayer for my little friend.
RIP Penny Lane
