Do As I Say Not As I Do

Computers 101: you don't, repeat don't, go a year and a half without backing up anything on your computer.

Luckily mister Murphy was kind and nothing went wrong this time. I'd been meaning to get a USB hard drive for ages, probably almost as long as I've had this MacBook. But, mostly due to lack of funds, kept putting it off, until I finally got one now. Now everything's backed up, and I feel much safer. The music alone would have been a huge loss if something had gone wrong, ripping all of it again would be more than I could bear...

I think it's time for a fresh start for this computer. A year and a half's worth of accumulated junk needs purging. I might also be interested in trying another OS. It'd almost certainly be Debian GNU/Linux.
