Turned out I was luckier than I first thought and I didn’t actually drown it. But something happened to kill it. We think the hard drive is dead.
So yesterday was spent hanging out at the Apple Genius Bar asking for help. They, in turn, passed me along to Melrose Mac where it sits now, awaiting a diagnostic exam.
With luck, it will be back in my grubby hands on Friday or Monday with a new hard drive and some extra oomph. I’ll also be upgrading my RAM and memory while it’s in there. I’m kind of excited to get it back with some extra power.
I have to say though, it’s rough living without it. I guess I never realized just how much I used it. I always thought of it as my extra computer that allowed me to be online while watching TV and hanging with the hubs. But now, the only way I can actually be online is to be in front of my computer. No more mulitasking for me.
The good in this…I picked up quite a bit of client work this week, so I’m really able to focus on getting my work done.
And some completely unrelated fun stuff…I’ll be heading out to the Springsteen show tomorrow. Someone at the office had an extra pair of tickets so the hubs claimed the for me and a girlfriend. Mind you, I doubt we’ll be hanging out with him and his SuperFan friends (he’ll be one of the many attending both LA shows on this leg and whatever else comes around on the next leg), but it will be a fun show.
While I’m not the biggest Bruuuuuce fan by any means (I think I shared that a couple weeks ago in regards to the San Jose show), I do love the actual performance. And well, the set list has been quite good as well, so I’m sure we’ll be in for a great show.
