MacHappy or MacSad

Just received this from a friend and having suffered a comatose laptop exactly a year ago I’m feeling her pain. Backup, backup, backup! And always remember it’s just 0s and 1s.

X’s Macbook drive failed last week and she lost everything, the disk
was so damaged that nothing could be recovered. Apparently this is very common as there was a manufacturing problem with the some of the Seagate Drives that shipped in the Macbooks and Macbook Pros.

If you have a Macbook or Macbook Pro read the instructions from the links below to check whether you have one of these drives. It will only take a minute but it is worth it.

If you know of anyone who has a macbook please forward this to them. Despite that it was reported three months ago it is not common knowledge.

Information and more help.


Now I’m not so jealous of my MacHappy Family. I must take a photo of my
parent’s dining room table to show you. All of them sitting there like
drones staring at these little white plastic things in this grand old
Edwardian house. It’s hilarious.

And I SWEAR I’m not just posting the information above out of begrudgery. I’ve got a rubbish computer too. It does the job but I don’t whip it out in public. In fact I try to avoid moving it even from one room to another because it is so damn heavy. Even my dad is cooler than I. He is so cool he would probably say “cooler than me.”

  1. Hey, that was me! Such a bad month. But the computer is back with a new drive and seems good.

    I checked your blog after Macdara told me he had started one of his own. It’s a full time job keeping up with the Smiths. But I do my best.

    I’m thinking about you guys a lot recently. Hope all is well is your beautiful family. We’ll be in Dublin a couple of times this summer, so I mope to have some quality time with the Smith-Mylers!

    Congrats on the sweet beautiful Fursey. In my mind, mo’ Smiths, mo’ better.

  2. Hey Lizzy,

    Hope you don’t mind being used as a cautionary tale.

    I can’t wait to see y’all (as you’d say yourself!) in the summer. Hopefully we’ll be able to have a big sit-down and catch up.

    Fursey rocks: saw him yesterday and he is so cute.
