Recently my wife’s HD on her Macbook died. Through a Google search I found this site and began lurking trying to find information on how to restore her files (I take comfort that I had insisted just two weeks prior on purchasing an external HD). After reading several posting on situations that were similar to what I was experiencing and the solutions that were offered by users on this forum, I felt confident that I could restore the Macbook on my own.
I ordered a new HD, installed it, formatted and loaded OS X Leopard, used Time Machine to install the backup files and was back up and running like nothing had happened. My wife was one happy camper.
I just want to thank all the folks who offer solutions to problems that are concise and very easy to follow; you guys really know your stuff.
There is a tremendous wealth of knowledge on this forum and that is what has prompted me to join this site (now if I can only convince the wife to letting me get a premium membership ).

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
