Well, I have the smallest glimmer of hope. I finally heard back from the company that made my hard drive. I am out of warranty (as I knew) but the tech seems to think that the problem is the power adapter has gone bad (not the motor on the drive itself). Which means, if he’s right, then I should be able to just switch that and magically everything will be fine.
It’s a shot in the dark, but it’s one that’s only going to cost me $30. So I ordered it and I’ll know in a few days.
Blah. I also need to remember to renew my flickr account sometime this week. Just don’t feel like it right now. *sigh*
