A moment of silence

The time has come to say goodbye to my beloved 12" powerbook. After the close call last year (fried hard drive), it never really recovered. Then nearly a year after the expiry of applecare protection, a few days ago it just didn't wake up. 4 pitiful beeps were the last words, a warning to all: backup your files!

Luckily mine were 90% backed up, and even luckier, the hard drive has been recovered and the brain of my very small computer is now in an even smaller hard drive enclosure.

Your powerbook must have been good in its lifetime because it seems to have come back in the form of a new Lenovo X61 tablet which arrived for me today. All good MACs come back as PCs...
