Last night, my hard disk crashed, so I'll be without a computer for a week or so. When that happened, I was ready to scream or cry or something. Hopefully this is now the climax of things that have not been going well recently (trying to help a friend out of his depression, not sleeping, losing my mp3-player), because I am not sure how much more I can take before I go crazy.

I ended up watching two episodes of Buffy last night, because I couldn't even call any of the people I wanted to call to vent: my parents are still in the USA, my brother is on business in Florence, friend A is in London, and I knew that friends B and C were on a date. And I couldn't even tell you lovely people....


Sorry to hear this.  Especially about the lost mp3 player.  That would really bug me.  Of course you won't read this reply for a week!  :(

I don't get what you are complaining about, you got a perfect excuse to watch two episodes of Buffy.

Okay, that is bad but don't ever say I didn't try to be an optimist.

So sorry, Em. Hoping things take an upturn soon.

 :( :( :(. hope things get better.
I actually consider a lot of movies to be life-changing! I take them to my heart and they melt into my personality.

Thank you everyone! Things are looking up - I spent most of the weekend sleeping and watching films, I'm getting myself a new mp3-player today, my new hard disk is going to arrive tomorrow, so my computer should be up and running again by Wednesday or Thursday at the latest. No idea yet if my data can be saved, though.

There are companies that can usually retrieve data from damaged HDs but they are kind of expensive (and it depends on the size of the HD) is it a work thing?

No, it's not a work thing, so the expense of professional data retrieval would definitely be an issue. I'm going to have a friend try and help me by connecting the HD to a Linux system to see if I can access the data that way, but if that doesn't work, I'll just have to admit defeat. There's nothing absolutely vital on it, just plenty of private stuff that I'd hate to lose (pictures, e-mails, word docs etc.).
