Murphy Strikes Again
Grad school corollary of Murphy’s Law: if your final thesis presentation is in two weeks, your iMac’s hard drive WILL fail. Thank heavens everything is backed up, but still…what a deuced inconvenient time for my computer to die!
Update: the hard drive is definitely screwy, but one in every 20 restarts or so will actually boot. As of this writing, the computer works (temporarily) and I’ve verified that all my critical data is fully backed-up. I will still have to replace the HD though.
