Why is Hal having so much computer trouble?
The magnetic fields of her body are causing all electronics to fail.
Somebody put a curse on her.
I put a curse on her.
Tinfoil anti-alien shielding failure.
I don't know, but don't you think that proves zombies are superior to robots?

Seriously, in the last month I have:
* purchased a brand new MacBook with a faulty motherboard
* had the brand new MacBook's screen scratched during the motherboard repair
* been locked out of the domain at work twice
* screwed up a Powerbook by installing a system update
I haven't lost anything; I'm a complusive backer-upper. But who knows if I'll be able to sync my iPhone again before my vac? I could be stuck with the music that's on there now!
Also, I was downloading Mad Men.
ETA: It wasn't the power supply! I got it to boot from DiskWarrior and that fixed it all up nicely. :) :) :)
