Computer Blues

Well, I'm, um, creating a disk image. I wonder if maybe just the motor was burning out or something. It's um, going slowly:

[whiptail:/Volumes/fw-1] celesteh% ls -las laptop-image.dmg
24156768 -rw-r--r--  1 celesteh  staff  12368261120 17 Feb 13:34 laptop-image.dmg
[whiptail:/Volumes/fw-1] celesteh% ls -las laptop-image.dmg
24157280 -rw-r--r--  1 celesteh  staff  12368523264 17 Feb 13:35 laptop-image.dmg

Uh, great. And it's a quarter of the way through.

Do laptop screens get burn-ins? The firewire icon has ceased bouncing around on my laptop screen and is now just in the middle. it's bright too. I don't think there's any way to dim the screen.

so how much does data retrieval cost, anyway? Can anyone recommend some place?
