Back the !*@# up

On 18, Jun 2008 | One Comment | In User Experience | By Ryan Feeley

During last week’s heat wave my iMac began to act really strangely. Hiccups appeared, slowdowns took hold and eventually video artefacts scrambled the entire screen. I connected my recently replaced backup drive and Time Machine kicked in. I took this photo which kind of reminds me of when action movie stars walk away all nonchalantly from explosions.

The backup was successful and oddly, once the heatwave died down, the iMac returned to normal. I’m only halfway through my warranty, but I know that I will soon have to haul all twenty-four inches of it in for repair.

    Whoa, for some reason I am having an 80s flashback to the graphics on my Commodore Vic20!
