Well I'm advising all readers to add the blog Jim Not Mike to their reading pleasures. Not only will you get good reading material....but Jim was able to do a HUGE favor for me!
HE WAS ABLE TO RETRIEVE ALL MY FILES FROM MY FRIED HARD DRIVE!!!
Yep, the IT guy at work couldn't do it, but Jim did it - rather fast actually - and he did it using his MAC. That may have to be my computer of choice next time around. KUDOS to Jim and MAC!!
