A Fatal Disk Error at Montague Projects

Yesterday morning at about 8 am my hard drive died. On restart I got the terrifying flashing question mark folder. I took my laptop out to the Apple store and they installed a new hard drive for $250. I was greatly relieved to get off that easy. Thankfully I have been using Time machine for the last 6 months, if this had happened before, when I was backing up every week or two I would have been screwed. In any case, I missed my Daily Book Graphics post yesterday, so today there will be two, but not until much later, I have a lot of other things to get done first.

whoa nelly! I, too, recently learned the benefits of Time Machine when my logic board died and, for reasons too involved to get into in this comment, I had to acquire a new computer. Since then, I've been trying to remember to backup every night or every other day, but I'm too lazy to hookup the drive. So I'm looking into a Time Capsule investment so it can all happen magically via the wonders of wireless technology.
