Goodbye old friend

My trusty Thinkpad X31 gave up its digital ghost today. After 3 1/2 years of companionship, my little sidekick is no more. Unlike all my other laptops and computers, I've had in the past, this one was kinda special. Truly a workhorse, it accompanied me through 4 startups/gigs, 150+ continental flights, countless airport delays, multi-media projects, business plans, budgets and spreadsheets, high-powered corporate presentations and everything else that would fill a 16 hour day. I guess in a way I took it for granted. How fitting, my day ended with Sarah McLachlan singing "Ordinary Miracle". That little X31 was my ordinary miracle. Tomorrow, I'll find out if I can at least salvage it's little 40GB memory bank.
