Mega rant: today, I learned that my hard drive is so bad, Geek Squad can't back it up by normal means. It has to be done by data recovery where they disassemble the hard drive and try to reassemble it so they can get info from it. The very bad news? This is going to cost me $1599 or more, roughky the same price I paid for the computer originally. But I have no choice, all my novels and writings are on there. Oh yeah. There is also no guarantee it will work. >.<.
People, let this be a lesson to you all: back up your computer, even your MacBook, regularly.
Also, this will take 8 weeks.
In other news, Jenn, that is great news about your friend. :D
