The woods decay The woods decay and fallAnd after many a summer dies the hard drive.
You're so eloquent Fogg. What a wonderful eulogy for my well loved and now departed little machine.
I wish I could claim credit, but Tennyson wrote that quite a while back. Only it was 'swan,' not hard drive.The poem is called Tithonus - about a man granted immortality but who forgot to ask for youth to go along with it.
Still a wonderful use of the words. :) And thanks so much for posting. I'm having serious issues that aren't likely to be solved for at least another week.
Tennyson is under-appreciated these days, I think.
