Tonight my Mac reported that it was out of hard drive space, just minutes after I checked and was told there was approx 4GB free. I am not sure what happened, but it dropped to zero and then went back up to 3GB free a few minutes later. I was scanning in some receipts and reading email via a webmail account and nothing else when the web browser froze (Safari) and I started getting odd errors from the scanning app.
I have been holding off on upgrading my 100GB 7200rpm drive (the largest in that speed that you could buy in early 2006) in case Apple announced new Macbooks with Blu-Ray drives, but I finally had to buy one.
I settled on a 320GB 7200rpm Western Digital drive… for the killer price of $94 (plus $6 shipping). Amazing price. I just hope the drive turns out to be a good one.
In other news, I am ill for the second time this year – yet another mystery cold type illness. I also went to Scott’s sister’s wedding this weekend and had great fun – I took some great photos and spoke to one of the photographers for a long time, who convinced me to spend many thousands on a pro lens (well, when I save up for it).
