When your computer does the funky flex

My computer did the funky flex this morning.

In other words, I woke up, turned it on—and all my old SI.com and ESPN.com columns were gone. The whole file JEFF’S GOODS was gone. I checked Trash, checked Desktop, checked everywhere—gone. I back up with Carbonite, but I’m still baffled/annoyed. I have a MacBook, which I’ve been pretty happy with. But this crap seems to happen sometimes, and it infuriates me.

On a side note, how about that wacky Carl Paladino, Republican candidate for governor of New York? Here, watch this …

You’ve gotta like a candidate with the guts to threaten to take someone out.It shows leadership. It shows heart. It shows gusto.

It shows … the Tea Party!

  1. Oh, geez, that sucks. Thankfully, that’s never happened to me. And now that I’ve said that, I’ve jinxed myself, so I’m going to back everything up now.

    And man, politics bring out the best in everyone, don’t they?

  2. Paladino is most likely, indeed, a nut. That said, if this Post reporter is really stalking and otherwise trying to get photos of his young (I think 11 years old) daughter, then that might exlain why Crazy Carl was (justifiably) pissed off.
