Today has been an interesting day. The hard drive on my laptop died. It has been acting up for a few days and I kept saying "I need to back everything up before it dies". Well, that didn't happen and it's dead. I went down to our IT group to see if that had any utilities to help me out. Make a mental picture of this.... It's around 4pm on a friday afternoon. I walk in and say that my hard drive is dead. They said, "Oh, we should put it in the freezer for the weekend and we'll check it out on monday." I trust these guys, but at a glance this looks like "don't bother me on friday afternoon, let's wait until monday." Well, there is no way I can wait until monday, so I brought the drive home and figured I could try it out here. I just googled this and found out that there is some truth to this method. Right now as I type this email (on my desktop), my hard drive is in the fridge "chillin out". Wish me luck! I'll let you know if this works out for me.
