Got some old slow, worthless box that you’re thinking of throwing away? Don’t. My iBook expired with amazing speed a couple of days ago, and if it hadn’t been for my motley collection of old desktop Macs, my gradual moving of things into web 2.0, and my semi-haphazard backup strategy (i.e. it happens sometimes) I would be entirely fecked by now. As it is the last two weeks of email, photos, links, etc, are isolated in their own little private universe. But I’ll get them back.
