Dearly beloved, we are gathered here tonight to celebrate the life and love of Hard Drive. :~(
When we started this journey together, we assumed it would end in planned obsolescence, but the years we spent together were the best of our lives.
There are so many good memories to back up. :~)
Like the time we improperly ejected ⏏ Hard Drive, or the great migration from Windows ➡️ Mac OS, but being so solid and dependable, you didn’t lose a bit or byte of info.
Or that fateful day when your sleek, compact design that had once brought us so much joy, made you slip through our fingers to your final resting place.
✝ ␛ ✝ ␛ ✝
We held you in our hands, and felt your 7200 RPMS slow down to zero, until the click of death finally overtook your drive as you entered the great bit bucket in the sky.⛅️
Every time we see a ‘media offline’ message, we are reminded of your absence.
We wish there was a Time Machine that could take us back to all the good times you kept in store for us.
Hard Drive, thank you for being part of our lives, and thank you for the memory. ✌️
Your final wishes of being responsibly recycled will be followed though. ❤️♻️☁️
Unfortunately, it was too expen$$$ive to save your contents so all we have now are these videos. ▶︎
Come pay your respects at our screening/funeral for Hard Drive @ The Nightingale.
