There's nothing worse than a blogger without a computer. Its like being a sailor with no ship. That's exactly what I was for about nine hours yesterday. Philerico was almost cut short before its time when, while preparing for tomorrow's broadcast, the hard drive crashed on my beautiful beautiful Macintosh, which I got second hand from my friend and fellow-Bilerico-er, Michael Crawford.
Perhaps, I shouldn't have had three browsers open (Flock, Chrome and SeaMonkey), each with several windows and tabs open in all 4 of the work spaces, along with Adium, Skype, iTunes and Garage Band--but there really is some serious work that goes into prepping for the SameSexSunday podcast.
Before I knew it, I was staring at a white screen with a blinking gray folder with nothing but a question mark printed on it. I was frantic on the phone with Jerame Davis asking him what the heck was happening. He broke the bad news to me.
Sad Mac indeed.
