At the moment, I am fielding a minor depression which has been brought about by the end of the project I’ve been on for six months – which has gone well, it’s just that saying goodbye to your babies is hard, as any parent knows.

It’s not been the best six months of my life – including as it did a major health scare – but it has been a fantastic time creatively. Me, my mates, my music, my microphone, my melodica, and my Mac.

Today, my huge, fast, silver dual processor G5 Mac stopped working. It just won’t boot. It tries to – it whirrs its zillion fans meaningfully – but it just sits there looking imminent without doing a damn thing. It’s something to do with the motherboard, not the disk, not the RAM, not the peripherals. I have fixed macs for other people enough to know that it’s Back to Base for this baby.

There are five songs on there I need to rescue, so I’ll be praying for a disk-swap song-retrieval success story in the next few days. Otherwise I’ve lost at least a month’s work and then I’ll be considering selling up and moving to Chile.
