My MacBook and Me

My MacBook Pro took ill yesterday morning. It appeared completely dead -- black screen. The IT department determined that the computer itself was working but the display was not. They replaced the logic board and, eventually, the entire top of it (the keyboard area).

So -- it was two days at the office (in the first week of classes) with no access to my files, and sitting in the department copy room using a public PC (Windows -- blech).

It really makes you reflect on how much of your life (your work life and your personal life) you keep housed on your computer. It's a good thing that I have most of my course lecture notes for the courses I"m teaching this semester in three-ring binders.
