Murphy Strikes Again

April 2nd, 2009 by Noam Berg

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.

About the Mad Scientist Running this Show

Noam Berg is a graduate Student in the Design and Technology MFA program at Parsons School for Design in New York City. He is also the (debatably) creative force behind Exfish Studio. Noam is obsessed with old vacuum tubes, type design, computers, guitars and comic books. Noam likes Thai sweet chili sauce, hats, suits & ties, Wacom tablets, Japanese green tea (with the toasted rice), nerdy science girls, many varieties of music, SLR cameras, AnarchoJudaism, lithography and pocket watches. Noam's not a big fan of cell phones, the cool kids, ugly and over-used fonts (you know who you are!) and talking about himself in the third person. Seriously, this is really weird. I'm gonna stop doing it now.
