Commenting is caring


Alone in my apartment.
The only windows I see, is the one showing a scary outside. With “Trees”.
I have put some cheese on my door to find a working mouse.

My eyes are going into screensaver and I find it hard to switch to the wireless network.

Saturday, my computer crashed.
Windows not starting. Fear of data loss.
Could not connect. Could not connect.
F8.L repair. Dell. XPS MP1330. DST 2000-0146. Replace your hard drive.
Yours is dead. RIP.

As I see my old hard drive turning and turning, going down as I flush the toilets, I see those memories we shared together.
250 gigs of myself. My work. MSN contacts, Facebook passwords, ebooks…

You have had a great life hard drive.

O where thou leave me?
Maybe thy life is commodity!

You’ll be replaced Hard Drive!
Fatal Failure can get you, but if it gets you, another one will come.
And another one will come. Then it is pretty much the end of my warranty.

Without you, Hard drive,
I could not contact the chinese. They worked 2 days without my supervision.
Guess what monster has been derived from my project?
What can happen in 2 days?
Has my widget turned dragon?
Into a Flying Kite of mystery?

Hard drive.
Tomorrow, you’ll be replaced. Dell technician said you’d be brand as new.
No you’re not the very same hard drive. But you’ll keep on fullfilling your Hard Drive destiny : helping people download porn on their computer.

I will see your guts wide open.
I will laugh at you. Give you the finger.
But inside. Deep inside (Intel). I know I’ve lost 250 gigs of memory.

    There’s always a way to get those data back, Dad did it when mine crashed 3 years ago ^^

    Kudos for professionalism.
