Do yourself a favor ... back up your files today. Right now if possible.
I went to bed last night with a fully functional computer. I woke up this morning to a blank screen and a message that said "hard drive failure is imminent." After trying a dozen times to get past that window by turning the power off and on reality sunk in that it really wasn't going to start ... ever. Fun stuff. Well, on the sort of bright side I now own one of those nifty new touch screen PC's which look like a giant iphone. I'm thinking it could come in handy making new invite designs. That said, the photos I'd saved for my next blog post are stuck in the hard drive experiencing imminent failure. Hopefully I'll be able to salvage them tomorrow.
