Today the warning came: "You don't have enough free hard drive space to run this application". Uh oh.
Here were are together, when she was brand new.
Dave has offered to upgrade my hard drive if I buy a new one. I'm reluctant, and the best analogy I can come up with as to why is like this: I'd trust him with my life, but not if that involved open heart surgery. Likewise, my laptop. I don't want to watch as its poor case is opened and deeply embedded parts are removed and replaced. I want it in the hands of someone who will be able to/have to replace it if they end up destroying it.
I'm going to make my first pilgrimage to the Genius Bar at our local Apple Store today. Hopefully they'll be able to make some suggestions to get my beloved laptop up in tip top shape again.
