...will be a better day for the "torn trees tutorial"!
as it turns out, i've spent a big chunk of today backing up files and researching how to replace a hard-drive, because apparently, mine is on the verge of failing. nice of it to do whatever diagnosical things it did in order to tell me, though, right?! seeing as how i actually hadn't backed up everything super-recently and would have lost a few precious things. three cheers for an external hard-drive that's so easy to use even *I* could figure it out, which has an "automatic" feature i have now engaged. if it's been a while, perhaps *YOU'D* like to spend a little time making sure your system is hunky dory too? just in case??
and then let's all go read some LOLcats!!! ♥
