There was a brief power outage in my area a few days ago; I had my Mac in sleep mode at the time. I went to turn it on today and it's completely unresponsive.
This is the machine I got from Shon Howell five years ago when my first computer died that I'm talking about here. It was about a decade old when he gave it to me, so it's not exactly new. But it's where I have all my important Word documents regarding Nineteen-Ninety-Something, including my schedule for the entire ten-year run of the strip detailing which stories are going to go where. It's also where I have Photoshop and my scanner. So if it is in fact dead, Nineteen-Ninety-Something may end up missing a few updates for a while. (This also potentially means I lost all my old Agony Booth recaps, my Mystery Science Theater 3000 episodes, and my Wreck-It Ralph fanfiction.)
I do have my new laptop that I bought a few months ago, which is where I'm typing this now. But it doesn't have Photoshop, or even Microsoft Word, because I haven't been able to afford to buy them again. (Windows doesn't include Word on new computers anymore, much to my dismay; they sell it separately for $100 at minimum and bundle it with three other programs I know I'll never use.) I don't know much about Macs - am I screwed, or is there some fix to this that I'm just not aware of?
