It's Alive!

Well, as I said the other day with a rather dramatically titled post, my computer died. It wouldn't start up again and I was freaking out a bit. The culprit was that same old hard drive. I thought I had lost everything including ALL my digital pictures I have taken and some websites I have built. But I was lucky and performed a transplant operation, transplanting the hard drive into another computer and rescuing the important files. I also ran some diagnostics and, I hope, fixed the hard drive at least for the time being. I still haven't re-attached the hard drive to my computer mostly cause I'm scared it still wont work. Below I have posted some pictures from the operation.

The biggest obstacle was figuring out how to get the damn hard drive out. It was screwed in from both sides and the other side is completely inaccessible. There are holes in the metal case but they aren't lined up properly. It was only after I realized that by removing a few screws, I could take out the whole container that houses the hard drives, actually giving me better access to all the screws.

Speaking of surgery. Last night when I should have been sleeping I saw this show on plastic surgery. It's a REALLY disgusting process and can't understand how anyone could stomach performing any of the operations. Even the simplest, least disgusting ones are pretty nasty. I guess that's one career I definitely won't be following.

plastic surgery land LA? or was it on vh1? i know, i did that too. I just didn't watch the surgery bits because I like sleeping o' nights.

i see you got word verification. did i tell you to do that?

did you notice that your last few posts are about dead computers, then dead people, then surgery on computers, then surgery on people?

very symmetrical.
