...which is why I am standing in que to see a Genius to help me fix it.

Of course, I've spent most of the morning trying to fix it myself (between checking my mail on my phone and running errands, like registering my car).

Anyway. I showed up 15 minutes early for my appointment at 'the bar', just in case they would have time to see me early, and truthfully, I couldn't think of anything else to do. Without my machine I am, ironically, a woefully ineffective web designer...which is what I am supposed to be doing right now.

Argh.

I am crossing my fingers and hoping that they don't have to take my machine away from me for a week or more. Jesus, I don't know what I would do without my machine for a week... especially this week. I have a lot to get done.

Update My local Genius replaced my logic board and got it back to me in under 24 hours, despite a HUGE backlog of work orders and a Genius Bar that was booked solid four hours in advance from the moment I left it with them to the time I picked it up.

Way to go, workbench nerds. Every time you do something like that you extend the awesomeness of Apple's brand. Kudos to you. You are the real reason I love Apple.
