Second Chances

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale,
a tale of a fateful scare.
It happened in New Mexico,
And followed me from there.

My Mac was a mighty writin' tool,
Its systems true and sure.
Until I turned it on that day,
No picture to procure.

The Mac guys at my office said,
"The hard drive — all is lost.
Your last hope is the Apple Store.
Their experts help no-cost."

And so I drove to Littleton,
Through pounding, driving snow.
I thought that every hope was gone,
but little did I know...

That Adam at the genius bar,
Would pull out all his tricks
And with a simple reinstall
My Powerbook would fix.

And so my hard drive's good as new,
Each program reinstalled,
with Entourage, and Firefox, too,
I-Photo, and Word,
My articles, my music and photographs—
my Mac's problems are solved.

Moral of the story: Back up your computer files. You may not get a second chance.

I keep thinking I need to back up my files...I'd be in a sorry state if I lost everything! Glad you were able to get everything restored! (Like the song, too!)
