This morning when I woke up, it was to a catastrophic hard drive failure. *WAIL*! 1 hour with tech support, then 3 hours schlepping it in to the Apple store... which I discovered was a MADHOUSE due to this weekend being Tax Free Shopping in Mass... for which reason they had closed their service desk... and I fear I was a total bitch until I got them to look at it anyway, run diagnostics, run disk-fix, and give me back a computer that, thank god, actually works. (Because I spent the 45 minutes it took to do that pricing new computers... and I can't really afford a new one right now. Ugh.)
Tonight is for backing up like a big dog.

Pursuant to my rant yesterday about confronting actors with slash, raqs
has some thinky thoughts about that here
, and, yes to everything she says. That's a great deal of what's at the heart of my objection to the practice, with some good analogies.
I think there was more stuff that I meant to say, but as usual it's leaked out of my brain because I didn't jot it down. Feh.
Going to pet my computer and try to make it behave. And to back it up.
