The Mac is dead. Long live the Mac!




*

The iMac had been acting a little wonky.


*

So I ran out and bought a new 500g external drive and Leopard and ran back home and tried to install it but all I got was a dreadful "beep, beep, beep!"


They call it a "catastrophic hardware failure."



I call it "Go back to San Luis Obispo and spend another fifteen hundred dollars and get a fucking beautiful and amazing new iMac. 


Goddamn amazing.



*

But.


I now need new Photoshop or I can do no art. 


Ka-ching!


*

Also, all my work is now trapped on a dead drive. My guy Rick Auricchio says we can pull it off the dead machine and it should be fine. The mother board is dead, but the drive should be okay.


Right?

It is Mother's Day and I made the mad knitter some waffles for breakfast and then we drove out Vineyard to Chimney Rock Road and went to Justin Winery for lunch. Stinky cheeses and asparagus omelette and a forty dollar half bottle of the 2005 Isoceles.


A full bottle of it managed to make its way home with us.

The picture above is from the side of the road.

Also, my daughter is being really nice to me!

Oh, that last sentence just about breaks my heart.

I wonder if that's what my dear dead dad used to think from time to time:

My god, she's actually being nice to me for a change.

Gosh, I miss him.

(I already told Radish, but I'll tell you too: Your cover art for her book is damned wondrous.)

(And that photograph up there of the trees and grass is pretty wondrous too.)

The same thing happened to my computer about 3 months ago and they were able to recover all the data and all the programs and return them to me on a disc. So I hope it works for you.
