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.
