Of Macs and Men, part deux

Back in 2011 I experienced the second of two catastrophic hard drive crashes on my late 2006 vintage iMac. I was able to replace the hard drive and it worked until some time very early this morning after 2 AM when the the old bugger finally gave up the ghost. I tried all the methods of recovery I could come up with, including a System Management Controller reset, unplugging it and plugging it back in. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.

In all fairness, I think I received real value since it is almost seven years old. I’ve never had a WinTel PC last as long.

RIP, faithful Mac. Your replacement will be here very soon.
