As if the hosting disaster weren’t bad enough, my laptop is increasingly unstable. For months, it’s been refusing to shut all the way down, failing on Time Machine backups, and generally being flaky. Today it’s suddenly much worse. It has stopped recognizing my USB hub, and now Numbers and Excel are both crashing on startup. (I CAN’T HAZ SPREDSHEET.)
Also crashing on startup? SuperDuper, which I need to make a good backup since Time Machine isn’t working. And I need at least one good backup before I can wipe this thing and reinstall from scratch, which appears to be needed. I’ve tried repairing the disk and permissions, archive & installing… nothing’s working.
I want to curl up and cry. Because it’s not like this happened in the middle of a big freelance job or anything.
My machines were always so reliable before Leopard…
