My laptop froze. I tried to reboot it. I got the flashing question mark of death. I tried to resurrect it. Finally, I took it to the repair shop. The guy said, “hard drive failed. Completely.” I didn’t get too upset. I had backups. I saw that the last one was several months ago. I didn’t get too upset. I didn’t keep much on the laptop that was not also on the desktop. Then I remembered. Some websites I had built for others were only on there. Now there’s probably no backups or original files and graphics. Then I remembered. Some ebooks I bought were only on there. There were all the PHP exercises I was working on. Then I remembered. There were lots of applications on that thing. Restoring won’t be easy. I hate that.
