Grrr, technology sucks

Damn laptop hard drive died today. I'm anal retentive about backing stuff up these days, but for the past week backups have been shut down while I did some work on the system. Normally not a big deal - don't really care if I lose a weeks worth of documents or something, those can always be recreated. But I think I might not have a backup of the last day at Yankee Stadium - 500 pics & an hour of video I took. Grrr.

On the plus side, laptop drives sure have gotten cheap. Just ordered a 250 GB Seagate Momentus 7200.3 for $74

Without technology you wouldn't have had any of those pics or videos in the first place...

ZipZoomFly. It was $81 with [FedEx] shipping.
I also looked at NewEgg, but they only had the 7200.2, not the 7200.3, and it was only 200 GB vs 250 GB, yet more expensive.
