I just wanted to check my e-mail.
I opened the door to my home office, waited until my three cats ran past me to get to their toys, sat down and clicked my computer mouse.
The computer froze. No big deal. I'll just hit the power button and manually turn the computer off and restart.
The familiar Mac startup chimes gave me comfort. Then ... nothing.
A blue screen ... then black ... then blue again.
Then, it happened. That darn little icon with a question mark ... and a sad Mac face. At this point, my face was sad, too.
