Hi Charlie,

I'm desperately sorry to hear about your 'accident', mate.

From my experience, I think you could count yourself extremely unlucky if the hard drive mechanism is stuffed following this incident, unless everything was reduced to cinders. They're pretty robust, you know.

This should mean the money spent on a new logic board from Hong Kong is not going to be wasted.

Good luck with the rebuild.
