The Hard Drive is Dead - Long Live the Data
Ok I win the too stupid to live award for the year. On Saturday morning I fired up the MacBook, updated it's software then rebooted it to finish the install (no this doesn't win me the award). Only it didn't reboot...it just hung with a white screen and made clicking noises. The Iboffins tell me that its hard drive failure and that they can put in a new HD and reinstall the operating system...but no idea yet on whether the data can be resurrected.
Yes you guessed it - there is no backup!!!! Yes I qualify for the above mentioned award.
