Well the old Mac Book Pro decided to throw a tantrum last night, and after a night of crying and weeping, it’s still throwing a gray screen of death at me, despite all the hardware tests saying everything is a-okay.
Despite my frequent admonitions to “Command-S yes yes yes” I hadn’t made a full back up for…a while. Time Machine is your friend. Your very bestest friend in the world. I’m going to let the old gray mare cool down (not very hard in today’s 1 degree temps) and see if I can revive it with some tools. Otherwise…Tekserve, you are my friend!
So needless to say posting delayed. I tried pulling out my old adorable 12″ G4 as a backup and it wouldn’t even load Gmail on Safari, such is the data/memory load now for the internet.
