no good very bad

State of the Laptop Address

I have got my computer back with a shiny new hard drive in.

On the plus side, I have got my music, my documents, my pictures (except the ones from the last month or so, which I don't think I have) and my bookmarks.

On the not so much with the plus side, I have lost my mail (thousands of LJ notifications!), my book catalogue, and my operating system. This is what happens when your computer dies while you are backing it up. Out of my whole application support folder, I only got the stuff that began with A. Plus, the Apple techs installed 10.3.9, which is weird and primitive, and I can't find my 10.4 install DVD. Woe.

So, uh ... back up early and often, kids. And try not to do it when your hard drive is having a seizure. It's better than nothing, but not by much.
