My computer is dying

For real.

Something odd happened last night that resulted in needing to reboot. I thought it just stalled in the middle of going to sleep. It turns out that something more serious is in the works.

When I rebooted, I was told about the "SMART Failure" that is "Predicted on Hard Disk".

Andrew looked it up. It's not good. Basically a major awful crash is impending. I'm trying to do everything I can to get as much info and as many programs as I possibly can before the end.

On the bright side, I have an extended warranty. A joke to most people; a saviour to me. It was offered to me when I got my computer because it was the shelf model. It was free. I was happy to take it, since it was free. And now it's good that I did. I called Staples earlier and they gave me a case number. I have to bring my computer in and they will send it away to get fixed. I don't know what that means. I just hope that it will return intact, or that I get a new one out of the deal. I just can't afford a new one. :(

So, despite the fact that I don't really blog that often lately anyway, I probably won't be blogging for a while. At the least, I'll be getting some sort of replacement -- but I don't know what it will entail.
