I have a Mac, and I recently lost about four megabytes of MP3s due to a hard disk failure. The bad thing is that it happened IMMEDIATELY BEFORE I WAS GOING TO BACK UP SAID MP3S! I got them all into tarballs and everything, and then...<P>PLOOK! Everything gone. Fortunately I got my non-musical files backed up beforehand since I knew that the disk would crash within the day anyway. (I forgot how I knew this but I did.) BUT I WILL NEVER HEAR MOST OF THE TMBG UNLIMITED SONGS AGAIN.<P>Dave "Now Mike will laugh at me!" Smith<P>------------------

Oh no! Not another one, at this rate there won't be any sane people left on earth soon, so your computer dieing won't be for naught...<P>------------------

Damn, that sucks. <P>The same thing happend to me about a week ago, I had to reformat my hard drive and reinstall Windows 2000. I would've lost everything if it wasn't for my Jaz drive.<P>If you had Windows, I could tell you how to get everthing back. But since you have a Mac (which are a complete mystery to me).<P>Whatever happend, I seriously doubt any of your files are lost forever.

That's not what I meant! You're supposed to multiply the ASCII value of each character to get a Unicode value. Then, run it a few times through a decoder ring and presto! You get a secret message!<P>------------------

I had a bad experience with my computer this morning.<P>I had upgraded my machine from a Pentium 400Mhz processor to a 500Mhz Celeron and got a fancy new Motherboard.<P>The instant I turned on the computer a puff of white smoke rose from the Video card and the monitor went into power save mode. crap. The hard drive also sang alittle song that I believe went alittle something like this: <B>KKKKRRRIIIINNNNNHHHHH *grind* p'ting p'ting p'ting paaah-rink</B>. CRAP!<P>OK, so of course, so I have to go out in the 10*F icey cold miserable weather and bebop on over to Dork Central(aka CompUSA) to get a compatable Vid card.<P>So I get the correct Video card and a 20GB HD (big upgrade from the 10 year old 4GB HD), and both work perfectly... But now the LAN card won't work.<P>So that takes me an hour to figure out.<P>All I can say is thankyou Iomega for inventing the Jaz drive. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif">

I dropped my laptop and now my DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive is stuck open. And the power cable doesn't like to stay in the computer. I'd like to send it to CompUSA to so they can send it to Apple so I can get it fixed, but then I'd be without a computer for a long while. And I can't be without internet for long! If only I could install a wireless ethernet card in my Dreamcast...<P>So anyway, I realized that there was a simple solution to my problem: Buy a new iMac, put my Airport card in it, backup all my files using direct firewire whatever, and then send my iBook to the CompUSA people. And then I realized that ALL PROBLEMS CAN BE SOLVED BY PURCHASING iMACS.<P>So here's my plan: We go and beat up Bill Gates for his lunch money. With it, we buy an iMac for everybody we like. And even if they don't like Macs, who can resist a free Unix machine? (If they don't like Unix, burn their flesh.)<P>Anyway, have a hotdog already. Only a dollar!<P>------------------

Obviously, Mike's need for sex stems from a certain biological urge. But I have studied Mike's species and lived among them unnoticed for some time, and I have realized that this urge is actually hunger. You see, he wants to obtain a child to devour. He wishes this because of a subconscious desire to be fatter. Much much fatter. You see, his subconscious's desire is to obtain planetary mass, and revolve around the sun.<P>For the sinister thing is, Mike is not a mortal man, as he claims to be, but he is, in fact, a demon earth-child. One day he or another of his kind will destroy this world. The smart will develop technology to be able to live off of his people. Only they will survive.<P>- Originally was going to post about squirrels
