Impending Tech Doom

I have two laptops. The old one mostly stays in my office on campus and is mostly used for work stuff (writing the dissertation, writing class lectures and grading papers, etc.). The newer one stays at home and is my primary play computer with more emphasis on media consumption. I arrived in my office this morning to find my old computer there displaying a warning message that my hard drive failed a couple of diagnostic tests. A quick google of the failed tests gives advice of, basically, "Back up everything and get ready to buy a new hard drive as the death of yours is imminent." At least it warned me, I suppose, but now I feel like I'm typing on a time bomb that I know is ticking down but I can't see the display to know how much time I've got left.

PS Saw His Last Vow last night. More comments later but for now, general overall impression: Fantastic!!
