Our desktop PC had been acting up lately - not that we've been using it much - and I took it in for repair. Turns out the hard disk is fried; there is the slimmest of chances for data recovery.
Lost to digital oblivion are our photos (I'm going to hit up my family for the picture CDs I burned for them), my sermons (I have hard copies of most them filed) and Powerpoint worship presentations, and memories of WanCatan greatness.
For now, we'll continue as has been the usual: on the Mac laptop. I always got a chuckle out of the "Mac" and "PC" ads.
And now I'm going to back up the data on the iBook.
