Lost the C-drive on my old computer. I suppose if I was more of a computer person, I would have noticed the tell-tale wop, wop, wop of an incipient digital flat tire. Now the quest is to see if I can get the files salvaged off the old disk for less than the cost of a government bailout.
Oh wait! Am I not part of the media now? If John Kerry can bail out the Boston Glob, maybe I can get a few bucks to salvage my drive. I'd even say nice things about the politician who got me the money. At least once.
Got a new computer anyway. Much quieter than the old one.
