So yesterday when I went to boot up my new laptop, it refused to cooperate. Even in safe mode. Even in last successful mode. In any frigging mode. The diagnostic test I tried to run on the hard drive reported total hard drive failure. :/ Did I mention this computer is less than seven months old?

I took it back to where I bought it (and where I bought a two-year extended warranty) only to discover that it was too new and has to be sent back to the manufacturer. At least I don't have to do it -- they'll do it -- but it will take two weeks, if not longer, before I get it back. :/ :/

The good news is that all my writing's backed up, so I didn't lose any stories. The bad news is that I haven't backed up my most recent iTunes purchases, so those things might be gone. Ditto the custom layout I had for my one computer game vice - Mahjongg. :( I can redo the Mahjongg tiles (it will just take time). If I have to repurchase the iTunes stuff, it will still cost less than the $99 they wanted to charge me for data recovery. Anybody iTunes savvy on my flist know if I can reverse the process -- upload from my iPod to the computer to recreate what I used to have on iTunes? I'm guessing that I'll end up with a new hard drive and will have to reinstall everything when I get my computer back. I'd really rather not have to re-rip all the music I used to have in iTunes if I don't have to.
