I was introduced to a client by one of my other clients at the bank today while I was making a deposit.
They had a dead portable hard drive and wanted to know if I could get the data off of it. I said I'd give it a shot.....took the thing apart and disconnected it from the logic board and hooked it up to my laptop....yay! Success!!!
It sure is cool to be able help folks out-they were pretty darn desperate and were sure they lost all their data-lots of family pictures and all their financial stuff.
I asked for my normal fee and they gave me a very nice tip on top of my fee....it's all good. They're happy and Dan and I have enough money to go play some poker tonight.
Wish us luck.....
