When It Grinds It Crashes

My Mac is in crisis mode. At this very moment I am running Disk Warrior on my Power Mac trying to recover my hard drive from whatever is causing it to grind to a halt. Not a pretty site. And it seems to take forever. Meantime, I am trying to catch up writing on this blog, and trying to learn a couple of new programs.

Why do hard drives crash? I’ve been told, it’s never a matter of “if” but “when.” All hard drives crash at one point or another and we are just subject to their mechanical whims. Sigh.

I’m hoping this crash will not take down the whole system. That happened about eight months ago and took a week to recover. I think it’s the techno gods that have it in for me. Mercury is not yet in retrograde… That will happen in July and hold onto your hats for that!

Perhaps you might consider not multitasking. Maybe the Universe is suggesting you slow down.

Sending hard-drive-healing to you! And I agree with Susan H: perhaps you need to slow down…and come visit… how’s next Tuesday, 6/24 sound????
