Current status: enjoying the fine weather at Myrtle Beach.
I got a call last night from Best Buy’s Geek Squad. It seems that I suffered hard drive failure, so they’ve replaced the disk and I’ve asked them to try to recover as much data as possible. My important files are backed up on Dropbox but I have a lot of music and media files that simply don’t fit there. If all goes well then I should have my computer and data back in the next couple of weeks.
