My computer is now with the Apple folks at the Apple store. They are replacing my hard drive and whatever else needs replacing. I should have it back in about four days. Four long, painful days. I'm just kidding. Isn't that great?? Because I use Time Machine backups, and I also generally work off another external for active work, I have lost no data. HALLELULIAH! or MAZEL TOV! Or any good happy celebratory thing to scream!
So, yes... I will lose some good solid work time this week, plus some focus -- not having my own "home base", I probably won't go through the saga of hooking up my Wacom Cintiq, plus just the creature comforts of having my machine "my way". (I'm on my husband's computer -- I'm using it in the interim - THANKS, MATT!). But -- no work lost. That is a BIG DEAL. I KNOW how lucky I am to have not suffered data loss!! :)
Times like this, I am glad I have a flair for overkill....I can't complain a bit about my overkill system for backing up... Except, wait a minute... I *could* use one more external, to back up the external I actively work off of... ;)
