Haaa... you like that title don't you? A play on a Fall related phrase, but actually referring to my glorious (being facetious) weekend, in and out of my local APPLE store.
I should have known this time was coming, however. I've had my MacBook for quite a while, and it was only a matter of time before the Hard drive failed. SIGH. Anyway, I know the MAC nerds so fondly named, "Geniuses" probably know what they're doing, but If I didn't need an entirely new HD I would have just attempted to fix the darn thing myself...forget the Apple Care Protection plan, which btw, runs out in 3 years because, "by this time we'd like to think that technology will have increased, and you'll want to buy a new system anyway, so why bring it in for fixing?" WHAT!?. NOPE. I am a tech nerd....but I like to get as many years out of my technology as possible.
Anyway, after a total of 4, maybe 5 (i lost count) trips to APPLE, I ended up with a new hard drive, my photos, and most of my documents, but alas... no Microsoft Office and my entire Creative Suite zilched. But, I must thank Brody Clemmer...the last Genius that worked on my laptop. He definitely was able to explain to me exactly what had happened and I left the store pretty confident that they/he had done all that could possibly be done. ...and still, I grumble at the thought of spending the next few days attempting to 'get' all of my programs back. (what? I'm not made of money....geesh)
Either way. I have to go, but not before leaving you with a few cool laptop accessories to brighten your day. lol....and atleast I'm back to blogging for the time being. *crosses fingers* and wishing myself 'good providence' -SBG
