powerbook in critical condition
early this morning, white smoke started emanating from my powerbook a/c adapter. i quickly started doing a full backup for around 50G of data. when it got to around 40G, the hard disk started the omnious click of death routine. i might have lost the sources to my website (although i have a backup of it 6 months ago) and possibly alot of my photos since 2006 that i hadn't backed up. i'm waiting for the battery to charge up again so i can switch it into firewire mode and see how much more i can recover.
seems like i won't be able to wait till next year for a macbook pro. i'll have to go get one some time this week.
