A tech fairy tale  
So my harddrive died. The one in my MacBook this time, not my external. And yes, I do seem to have some kind of strange inability to keep them alive. But! Not only did I manage to retrieve all my unbacked-up data from it, I also managed to repair it. However, I did have to reinstall the operating system, so I figured it was a good time to upgrade anyway... and now I have a 200GB harddrive that is SO SPEEDY. *wins* \o/

So. Um. Yes. Haven't been here in the last couple of days and that's why.

I want to catch-up, I want to post, but the speediness of vidding on this new drive is just so hypnotically enticing... :D

Remember when I sucked at all tech? Yeah, so do I.

Oooooh, shiny! It's so amazing when you go from slow to super speedy. Only problem is you get used to it pretty quick and start wanting MORE. And go you for not losing and data \o/

Yeah, it's amazing how fast we get used to greater speed and more memory.

...and no data was ever lost in the kingdom again, and Boppy and her mad tech skillz lived happily ever after.

I must say, I'm impressed.

I don't know where it came from... it just came. :D (I love Macs!)

Yay for you! I'm so glad you were able to fix the issue and didn't lose any data or anything. I'm very impressed.

Any chance you could send some of your luck over to me? My Mac has decided that it really doesn't want to reinstall the Mac OS X 10.5. Every time I attempt to, I'm forced to erase the hard drive. And even then it'll fail. And I've been repeatedly trying since Thursday night to fix the issue. Words cannot describe how incredibly frustrated I am.

Sorry, I kinda used your post to vent my frustrations. Hope you don't mind! :)

No, no, I understand... it IS very frustrating and only having been through two harddrive crashes previously kept me zen this time. That, and my very supportive best friend.
