I believe I mentioned the death...
...of a hard drive. At least it won't engage to boot up my trusty T-50. With luck, there are some recoverable files, but the machine needs to be replaced. Sounds like it's time for a begathon.
You know the drill - if you're able and inspired to help a blogger out, you can click here and make a PayPal donation to help me replace my computer and keep Upper Left up and running. I'll find ways to keep in touch in the interim, but left to my own resources, it's likely at least a couple weeks before I can afford anything.
If you're local and have a computer you're looking to unload, let me know that, too. I don't need a Cadillac - pretty clear if you realize how many generations of Think Pads have come and gone since the T-50 was new - just a servicable and fairly sturdy laptop.
As always, thanks for taking the time to be here, and if you can help, thanks for that, too.
