OMFG! When it Rains

It pours.

It looks like my old MacBookPro (from 2007) might be giving up the ghost. It's been running exceedingly hot lately. Hot enough it shut down once or twice. Got a usb cooler under it, buuuuuuuut… I've just had to do a reboot and now it seems it will not restart.

Not quite sure what the Hell is going on around here, but I have to admit, I'm starting to get a little nervous.

I've shut it down to let it cool off a bit and will try again later.

I don't think it will break my heart if it dies. Sure, I'll be upset. It's been my workhorse computer for quite some time. Made mods to it over the years. I put one of those hybrid hard drives in it a couple years ago. It boots really fast, 45 seconds or less usually, so I KNOW something is seriously wrong here.

Cracked the display on it a year or so back and that has been progressing towards un-usability. I was going to replace the LCD after I got a job, but if the thing is croaking anyway, well pfffffft!

I'll yank the drive and maybe put it in my MacMini or use it as a backup drive. Wait. What?!
