I was running through my demos for the OTN Tour of Central America and my laptop completely died!
<assorted expletives removed for fear of offending readers>
I ran through the disk repair utility and it found (and fixed) a number of problems, but still the laptop wouldn’t boot. Time for drastic measures!
Next I started a full restore of the hard disk from Time Machine. I left it running over night and woke up this morning to find a fully functioning laptop.
I’m going to record all my live demos so if something bad happens during the tour I can present from a memory stick.
Not exactly what you want the week before you go away…
