There's an ominous clicking inside my Powerbook.  It's in the vicinity of the trackpad, and when it begins, my computer's usefulness ends.  For the last few days I've been wrestling with it, using it most of the day then letting it rest after it decided to lock up.  But this morning, I assume some time between 2 and 6am,the forces of evil launched a massive attack, forcing my computer to surrender and surprising me with, when I awoke, a laptop that no longer starts.  That means, mainly, that if you've sent me e-mail in the last few days and I haven't replied, you should resend because I can't access anything on my hard drive. 

By the way, you know what's really terrific about my tech problems?  That they're happening during finals week.  Fan-fucking-tastic.
