I had written last month how my computer hard drive crashed and burned.
It was making a vile clicking noise and I kept getting a an error message.
Being an American consumer, I purchased a new machine.
The problem was finding a way to recover the data from the old drive like pictures, e-mail addresses, saved e-mails and bookmarks.
I am technologically challenged and the scientific community is united in that fact.
I came across an article that said placing the hard drive in the freezer will fix it long enough to recover data.
I put the hard drive in a freezer bag and waited 24 hours.
The computer booted up when I turned it on and I've been able to recover those important pieces of information.
I'm stunned, but very pleasantly so.
