just days after the warranty expires, the hard disk in my Toshiba Qosmio decides to do impressions of a chug-chug clunk-clunk fan with rattling loose bits inside! Yeeeeeeuch!

And even though I’ve got back ups, since the last one I’ve done a mammoth amount of work… ouch!

At least it’s only £50-ish for a new disk and we’re off again….. but it’s the hardship of it all! Having to re-install XP MCE, all the apps and stuff… eugh I’m dreading it! I’ve added a whole load of post Christmas CDs to iTunes too… boo hoo!

[sneaky laugh] Maybe I should bite the bullet and buy a new mac instead! Ha! ‘Cos that would cost not-a-little-bit-more-than-£50-ish??? [/sneaky laugh]
