09:47 pm - ok...
My hard-drive is apparently toast. Or toasty, but in either case this is making my life difficult in all sorts of ways. Not the least of which being I have an issue of IROSF to get out by tomorrow evening. Thank the stars for my co-editors and their blessed, blessed self-sufficiency.

Then of course I have apparently managed to forget the password to my actual primary email account. Or I've completely forgotten how to operate a command line interface, one of the two. I really hope it is the former.

So... email is not the best way to get in touch at the moment. Some kind of post on LJ here is probably pretty likely to get seen, though. Bonus is I can get to LJ from work, should I have the time at least.

grouchychris, what on earth did you say to my computer last night when you were borrowing it? rjl20, I may be in desperate need of some forensic data recovery consulting in the not too distant future...

There is a huge difference between not getting the hang of Thursdays and not getting the hang of, oh, June say. Argh.

Oy. If there's anything I can do, let me know. I'm not quite set up to do mobile recovery, I don't think (the overhead of doing it in VirtualPC would probably make it take way, way too long), but my work machine's set up to do recovery already, if you can spare the hard drive for a few hours.

thanks. I need to find out what my under-warrenty options are, and with luck that will give me an idea of what breaking and entering will need to be done.

Is there a "build your own Mac" community? I'd like the MacOSX on hardware that is as swappable/replacable/just go out and buy a new one-able as PC hardware is.

Oooh, crap. I forgot you have a Mac. I can do data recovery for Windows and Linux, but not Mac yet. I'll poke around and see what my options are for Mac filesystems.

So, oyu never answer your phone AND you've come up with some "mysterious hard drive" problem. Just admit that you hate all of us already and stop finding ways to avoid me!!!
