New hard drive

After dealing with one mini-catastrophe after another the past few days, I can no longer live in denial of the fact that (a) my primary hard drive is in fact failing, albeit in a slow and lingering sort of way, and (b) that my assorted patched and coping strategies are no longer working.

The replacement arrived from MacMall today, and its 500GB will double my capacity inside the G5 tower. I don’t anticipate drama, but if you don’t hear from me for a few days, you’ll know why.

Just in case I miss it, I’ll wish myself a happy anniversary right now, two days in advance of the actual date. I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for twelve years now…
