bad news is that I now have a dead laptop and an external hard drive
with all my data that I can't access. I had not planned on shopping
for a new laptop, but now that looks exactly like what I'll have to do!
On another note, the marathon is this weekend. It's supposed to be
pretty cool ... Colder than ideal for running. I got a pretty lengthy
info/tip list for volunteers ... I'll see if I can post it later ;)
