The Diagnosis

The verdict is baby has suffered hard drive failure, and needs a transplant. I really hoped it wouldn't have to come to this. I prayed this would be a simple outpatient procedure.

The Doc is in the process of attempting a file transfusion from the old hard drive to the new one, in hopes of saving precious files. (i.e. 24GB of un-backed up photos). The next step in recovery involves me rushing the temporary hard drive to Baltimore with me so Doc Joe can work his magic and preserve the files on DVDs.

...and the search for a hard drive donor is on. Thankfully, Doc Joe is an expert at locating vital PC organs on the cheap.

With luck, and a little cash pulled out of thin air, we'll be on the road to recovery in few weeks. :)
