if you drop it enough times...

Ok, the hard drive in my iBook died. i heard it making funny noises last night but i was too tired to do anything about it, and i figured i'd back it up when i woke up, so i shut it down.

big mistake. always let a failing drive continue to run.

It now won't boot up; the computer no longer recognizes the drive. I think the drive still spins up, but it doesn't show up when i boot off a cd. damn.

I guess i should try diskwarrior or something to see if they see the drive.

data recovery is expensive...
