My laptop crashed. Or more likely my hard drive did. I've been wary of my laptop's condition for some time now. It's been awfully noisy and prompts me all the time that I have low disk space. It's been warning me but I didn't listen. Until it crashed one day and I lost everything. Everything. Thousands of original (and only) copies of digital photographs of Offspring since birth, years worth of documents, mp3s, movies and scanned images. I know we should have upgraded into 500gb hard drive years ago but we neglected to do so. Now it's gone and there's nothing we can do to retrieve those files.
