This past Saturday my MacBook Pro laptop decided that it's hard drive wasn't a workable resource anymore. This is from a computer that was put together earlier this year, and has only been in use for about a month. How the hard drive could die after only one month is beyond me.
And to add the proverbial salt to this electronic wound, all the data (five years worth of files, recently transferred over from my old Mac) is not retrievable. Gone.
I'm trying not to think about it too much, but, knowing that I've been collecting files for that long, there are likely to be many things that I will very much regret losing. It's been quite the blow.
P.S. I'm consoling myself with Hallowe'en chocolate and Bailey's.
