my beloved ibook (from 2005) is currently sitting alone on a shelf somewhere at techserve on 23rd street. techserve is one of the largest mac repair and service centers in the city and I had to bring mine in to get my harddrive wiped out and a new one installed. basically i lost all my files because being the idiot that i am, i didn't back up any of my stuff in over a year. the saddest part is, my comp was acting all crazy last week and i told myself that now would be a good time to back up all my files onto my external drive, but did i listen to my first instincts when i should have? nope---and it's all my fault.

i just got home from work an hour ago and with no laptop, tv, ac and little else to do in my apartment on a hot summer night, i'm bored out of my mind and scraping the built up resin off my bong because i just ran out of supplies. plus, i don't feel like doing anything else.

yay for iphones and technology.


  1. ugh. I hate losing data.

    I lost 80gigs worth of photos and porn. I kept the hard drive in hopes that there will be a CHEAP recovery service in the future.

    Sorry man, that sucks!

  2. Thanks for the reminder -- I need to get a new zip drive to back up my laptop at home.

    Hang in there. Tomorrow is a new day.

  3. when my drive got corrupted I fortunately had another one with mirror image files. thats the only way
