Ouch! My laptop is sick. Really sick. Steve thinks my hard drive is going. I couldn't even use it yesterday. I ended up writing on his computer. Happy to say even though I felt discombobulated in his 'space' (the keyboard and seat felt foriegn and uncomfortable), I still managed six new pages. Seven pages the day before that. I'm whizzing toward deadline. But it's the fact that I am on deadline and that I must produce solid pages every day up until that point that's got me shaking in my pink high-tops. Not to mention all of the files... research, manuscripts. Steve did operate last night and I am working on the patient now, but she's slow and keeps gitching. Plus she makes these funny noises now and then. *shudder*

Please don't die on me laptop. Please!

Beth -- back up your manuscript OFTEN. Do you have a removable hard drive stick thingie? Rewritable CDs? Seriously, don't lose your hard work to an ailing hard drive. Every 20 minutes or so, save the chapters your working on to a disk or removable drive that isn't dependant on your laptop. Good luck, my friend!
I keep reading the title of your post as Medici--like you have a small, elegant, ancient Italian laptop. LOL.

I hope it gets better!

Have a great 4th!

Sending "Get Well" wishes to your laptop. I'd send some chicken soup but I'm not sure that would help matters any...

Just go get a new one. I'm sure it's about time.
