Hard Drive Crash - Blog Hiatus

Left: the bane of my virtual existence

The hard drive on my relatively new Toshiba Satellite A505-S6980 failed, and consequently my Internet access will be spotty the next few days. Luckily both Windows 7 and the Toshiba utilities recognized that the hard drive was failing, and I was able to back up and save most of my files and applications.

Thus, it may be another day or two before my life returns to normal and I update this blog. I am already going through laptop withdrawal, though I suppose I could design furniture using paper and pencil if I became especially bored.

Toshiba needs to find a better vendor.

Drat! Here's more aggravation for you, just when you need it least.

I'm glad you were able to save your data.

I went through three Toshiba laptops in about six years before switching to my Macbook - worry and hassle free over two years now.

Make sure to get some kind of online backup service such as Mozy or Carbonite. Only about 5 dollars a month and helps mitigate the risk of a harddrive crash making you lose all of your data.
