Brian’s Baby

Anyone who knows me should know that my computer is my life. My contacts, my schedule, my work projects, my music, my movies, and even the Bible I use the most are all on my computer.

That computer is a 4 year old iMac G5 PowerPC. I got in 2005 and between then and now it has travelled millions of miles, been from coast to coast and border to border, and it has produced videos/graphics/websites that have been seen by hundreds-of-millions worldwide.

I know I need a new one soon… my company, Shift Creative, is saving up to buy a few new computers but until then this is what I primarily use.

Anyways on Monday of this week it crashed. It froze up, turned off, and wouldn’t reboot. Jim and I looked at it and took it apart and figured out that the hard drive must’ve given out.

Let me remind you that EVERYTHING in my life is saved on that computer so to hear that I might’ve lost everything really upset me. We took out the old hard drive, put it in a freezer, put in a new one, got the re-boot discs, and installed OSX on a new hard drive. We then connected the old hard drive to another computer and got all of my important files off of it before it 100% kicked the bucket for good.

So my computer works, I have all of the files I need, and I will be backing everything up about 3000 times a day!

Thanks Jim for the help!
