I have had more issues with my laptop than anyone I know. It’s a Macbook and is seriously my baby.  This is why I almost had a heart attack when I heard the ominous clicking noises yesterday afternoon.

My hard drive failed. Again. This is the second time this has happened, and I don’t know why.

But, the nice guy at the Apple store here gave me a new hard drive for the cost of the part only, which isn’t cheap, but could’ve been a lot worse.

I now need to find a way to back up my stuff like, all the time. I didn’t lose my music (all on my iPod) or my blogging stuff (FTPed to my host), but I did lose all my pictures for the past year or so. That was stupid, not to back that stuff up.

But now I have a shiny new hard drive, and I promise I’ll treat this one better.
