Hard Habit to Break

Last Friday, I saw what was, quite plainly, the last thing anyone would want to see on the screen of your G4 laptop. Or anywhere for that matter. White words, on little black stripes, that said, “Panic. We’re hanging here.”

Not hanging in here, just here.

News like this wouldn’t normally put one in a trigger happy mood. But after invoking the message (obviously some programmer’s attempt at humour) for the third time, it sank in and I decided to take a shot on my camera phone. (Need Bluetooth, so will post later.)

My friend tells me it’s a fatal hardware failure. He’s replacing the harddisk for me and I’m getting it back tomorrow.

Oh god, that is horror-fying. Hope the harddisk replacement will do it.

Ur… Mac’s version to the PC’s Blue Screen of Death? WEll, it definitely sounds friendlier.

Okay, it’s official.

My hard disc is officially gone, crashed and dead. The folks from the computer shop called me today (3 days late) with the bad news while I was rushing like an idiot for another project. Not too good I say.

Gonna bring it to Lenny on Friday but I’m not placing much hopes on it.

It still hasn’t really sunk in that I’ve lost all my 2 years of work from school, ALL my fonts and all my pictures/movies/videos. The only consolation is I get a brand new 120gig HDD and my songs are in a different drive :(

All my songs were gone, but luckily I burnt them all for P a few weeks ago. Heh, gotta ask her back for it.
