Update: It Doesn’t Look Good

I suppose I should be grateful that it booted, because I’ve had a visit from the IT director. From the look on his face when he stepped into my office, I knew the news wouldn’t be good.

“Multiple indications of hard drive failure.”
How discouraging is that? I’m going to have a 2G flash drive to back my in-progress files to as a fail-safe, but I’m fighting time until a new hard drive and is installed.
I would just like to say that my personal laptop, a Toshiba, lasted over four years before it experienced a hard drive failure.
This nifty Dell laptop hasn’t made it to the one year mark.
My funk is nice and deep now.

    Btw … I dislike Dells. Just an FYI. We like Toshiba & Avio (sp?) Our current one is a Toshiba. We wouldn't mind another IBM if we could find a nice enough one.

  3. This is my work-provided laptop – no control over type purchased.

  4. Craig – it amazes me how you all can stay so upbeat working in and around technology all the time!!!
