    what happend to you on friday the 13th...
    Well I just had on great MY LITTLE PONY IS PRETY day.

    5 am my iMac (27" Quad i7) worked great.(ebay snipe).. turn it back on at 7 am, and white screen of death... no start up, bongs but no apple. Apple phone help could not get it going from 9 to 12.. by 2pm I was at Chermside, and it took 1 hour to get it to just boot, after permission & disk verification, would not boot again... all agreed it was a dead mac... swapped for a new 27" iMac with thunderbolt ports.. am now spending ALL Night re-loading from two week old backups... lost all inbetween... should take me another 4 days to get back to where I started...

    If I had remembered the day Friday the 13th I would not have gotten out of bed...

    what happened to any other board members...????

    Regards, Sandy
    (this is the second 27" imac that died after just a few months, pervious one finally drowned in jan)

    I would have said it was a dead hard drive, not a dead Mac.

    As for the friday the 13th...

    I pride myself in not being superstitious.

    I walk over three drains
    I walk under ladders
    black cats walk out in front of me constantly.

    because I like to be realistic. Why would this be any different from

    walking over two drains
    walking under a bridge
    having a white cat walk out in front of you?

    I'm typically with Rob, but this past Friday 13th, I was in bed with pink eye. No clue where it came from, but it jumped on me like a hungry lion pouncing on a wounded gazelle.

    But my Mac worked fine.

    Happiness is not getting what you want, but wanting what you get.

    Lol robyduckworth,

    I have a weekend neighbour that is somewhat superstitious, and alway when he sees me about to walk under a ladder he warns me.
    I always smile and walk right through

    Oh and absolutely nothing happened to me

    Thanks - that's been my mantra ever since I first read it... We even abbreviated it for a while - we just called it SURB.
