So I know I'm probably overreacting to this whole situation, but I am ABSOLUTELY devasted at my computer. I feel like I can't breath and that I'm going to vomit every time I think about it. I mean, I guess it's nice knowing that I'm going to be getting a new computer in the next few weeks, but I honestly don't care. I would rather spend the rest of my entire life not using a computer if it meant that I could have my hard drive back. I have hundreds of dollars in downloaded songs, another couple hundred in downloaded applications and programs, and how do you place a value on the memories of the last three years of your life? Every picture I've taken in the last three years was on my computer, and I had no way of backing them up, so no - I have no back up - I know I should have done something - and thanks for reminding me - but no that's not helping me any. I still feel like I've lost someone in my life that I deeply cared about, not my computer, I'm not that ridiculous - but every picture, every memory, every graduation memory, every picture I had of my niece when she was born, every picture I had of my grandfather in the last three years, my brother's wedding - I could go on and on and continue to cry about it... I'm absolutely paralyzed and have no idea what to do about it....

Hi, stumbled across your blog and saw your computer woes...
So I take it you're certain that the problem is a dead hard drive and that there's no recovering anything from it? Do you have any Windows (if that's what you're running) geek friends who might be able to help you get your software, pics, &c., back out of it after Christmas? I think that the professional HD recovery services are reputed to be pretty good, so even if you can't afford that right now, if all else fails you might consider just hanging onto the drive until you find the right friend or you have the money to send it in to a good service... I trust that your next machine will have a CD burner so that you won't need to suffer this way again. God bless.
P.S. -- enjoyed the little bit I read in passing enough that I'll read again at least a couple of times. My and my wife's own seminary/grad school days are well in our past but still strong memories. Peace.
