So, my wonderful, lovely, not even a year and half old Macbook Pro, the one that has my NaNoWriMo novel's original files and all my wedding pictures on it?

DIED.

Today. In fact, before class. It froze up, then when I rebooted it, Silver went all "durrrrr, where's my operating system? Are you my mommy?"

And I freaked and took it to my old boss at CTS. And he told me, and I quote, "Your hard drive's hosed. I hope you have Time Machine."

And I was all NOOOOOOOOO NOT SILVER

and now we're going to the Apple Store in Syracuse tomorrow.


(at least my novel is safe in my Dropbox account, even if I did have to piece all 40 something RTF files that Scrivener made into a coherent word document)

Awww. Hope it gets fixed; that sounds horrible. [Is it me or do more peoples' computers crash during November?]

(here from the Latest Things page, btw).

There is data retrieval software which can get your files out of a dead computer, I've had it done twice.

Mind you, I'm not sure how much it costs cos luckily my brother is an IT professional and has the software.

That sucks :(

It sounds like your novel's okay, but did you have backups of your wedding photos? I can't imagine what losing those would be like.

D: I've had the "Where's my OS?" error happen to a few of my computers (weirdly, mainly my notebooks, and the emachines box I had way back :V), usually a reboot will fix it long enough to get into the system, but obviously it wouldn't work in this case. Hope you're able to get your data! Which reminds me, I'm due to make another backup. >.>
