The worse day in a geeks life has to be when a hard drive crashes. Well, that just happened to me. I'm hoping I wake up in the morning and realize it was all a dream. I'll log on to my blog in the morning form work just to see if this post is here... if so then it is real.

I really hate this. It has happened to me once or twice before but often I'm able to pull the data off. Not in this case. The HD just makes a terrible clicking sound. Strange thing is the hard drive was brand new. I purchased it two months ago and transfered my entire file system over. Luckily I still had the old one lying around and I made a backup of my data last month. It will take me a while to figure out exactly what I'm missing. Lesson here is to always keep backups.
