So the hard drive in my Powerbook is failing. Grrr. Disk Utility is showing it's S.M.A.R.T. status as "failing" and the "repair disk" option says it can't complete the task. So I guess I'm going to visit the Genius Bar tomorrow.
It should still be under warranty - and at least I had enough notice to grab all my files. But I have bad feeling I'm about to have a few days without Kool-Aid. (grumble)
