My Digital Meltdown
I’m writing this on the world’s oldest laptop, hunkered down in far corner of my studio behind a wall of old cart screen monitors and empty cases of Diet Dr. Pepper.
My computer just self-destructed.
It was not pretty.
This calamity is probably due to sympathy pains with the mainframe computers on the east coast still sitting under six feet of brackish water.
In this worst-case-scenario both the main drive and the second, storage drive on my computer went AWOL prompting the dreaded “Disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter”.
While I know there are numerous tech-heads out there thinking “What’s the problem? You’ve got your system backed up on an external drive or cloud service, don’t you? Don’t You?…DON’T YOU???”
Sound effect: (sound of head hanging in shame)
So here I am, the poster boy for “The It Won’t Happen to Me Club”. So let’s look at my tale of electronic woe and learn a few lessons.
