Because Of Course, Timing

Since StoryBundle launches tomorrow, my computer crashed this evening.  Of course.

I do not feel happy when starting the computer results in the message, "Internal harddrive not found." Honestly, computer, it's in the same place it was last time you looked!

Since I've no clue what to do myself in that situation,* I took it to my local computer wizards. I'll hear tomorrow about what magic they might or might not be able to wield over my suddenly-blind laptop.

In the meantime, I'm working on the dojo computer -- thank goodness I was able to bring it home! -- and am so, so grateful I backed up all my pictures just last week.

And nothing, not even my fumble-finger keyboarding, is dulling my excitement for tomorrow's StoryBundle launch!



*The computer is one of the few components of my life I've never learned to DIY, alas. I am enabled in my ignorance by very good, very reasonable, very personable computer wizards who've taken good care of me for years.

Oh, no, Blair, I'm sooooo sorry! I hope you get good news tomorrow.

And, grats on the launch!

Oh computer. You are not looking hard enough. Come now. Where was the last place you put it??

I'm so sorry to hear this!

Very psyched about our launch tomorrow. Thank you so very much for including me ♥

I hope things get sorted out with a minimum of fuss and that everything else goes smoothly!

Not to worry you, but you might want to prep for bad news. The last couple times that happened to me, it meant that the hard drive was dead and needed to be replaced and things on it may or may not be salvageable.

I think that's a most excellent warning, truth told. The laptop is somewhere around five years old, and it's been used hard and daily for all that time. So I'm going to take that advice, use the next couple weeks or so to back up everything, and be ready to jump when it finally quits. :)
