No mixes this month

No new mixes in January, been having computer issues. Last October, my media hard drive went up in smoke, literally. My own fault, I plugged the wrong power adapter into the back. Not to worry, I had a back up. After this, I decided to reinstall Windows on my PC, during which the PC's HD failed. It was so bad I had to get a tech to fix it for me (thanks June).

Now, my Western Digital My Book has decided not to play. Time to worry, this is the back up. Not sure if it's the HD or the enclosure that's the problem. I'm hoping it's the enclosure, otherwise nearly 500 Gigs of music, vids and docs go bye bye. The disc spins OK, but when I connect it to my PC I get write save errors and Explorer freezes. I've no other SATA enclosures lying about so I've ordered a new one. Fingers crossed.

They say things come in 3's. I don't know who "they" are, but I could do without anymore HD failures. It sucks too much.
