Who was Cassandra?

  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I know how you feel, Beth, all too well as I've been having major issues with my machine, and these are not completely resolved yet. A state of fear then grief at seemingly lost data (it was backed up but "restore"did not entirely work!). Still hoping to solve it all but it really is amazing how hooked and dependent we are on these machines! Hope everything will be back to normal for you quickly, Beth!
