Recently, my SSD started failing. That's a usual fact with SSD and I was prepared for it, or I thought I was. I got a replacement Intel SSD from amazon which was advertised as 240GB rather than 256GB. I originally thought that this was due to formatting (GiB vs GB) but it turns out it is actually smaller.
I put in the Macbook Pro, launched Internet Recovery (boot with cmd-R) and selected "restore from time machine". Unfortunately, the system complained that my destination drive didn't have enough space.
So, EuroPython 2011 came and went, and it was great fun. I'll try to write down some impressions before I forget them entirely. UPDATE: I finally got to publish this more than a year after it has been written. I won't even bother to read it much.
