I woke up my macbook this morning to record my dreams, among some other curiosities, and i noticed little chunks of imovie were occuring all over th' screen, new alert windows had other windows in them, chunks of pictures you can mouse over / select to erase, etc. so I thought, well, must be a slow day. then my toolbar ( the thing at the top, sorry. ) goes all inverted colours and things get weird and slow, and then I get a multi-language your computer needs to be restarted now screen. I hold down the power button, as directed, then it boots back up, and i get this error report : okay, I recopied and pasted, sorry. Does anyone know ehre I would find a log for this ?? it's not in libraries / logs. Is this a " kernel panic " ? my primary question would be : what steps should I take to ensure none of my data is lost ? Can I just take out my hard drive manually and put it in th' fridge or sthg ? ? ?? I really need to keep it intact, or at least recoverable, my life is on this mac. If it's gone, I may as well not have lived. thank you, - Henry.
