Yesterday’s relatively early post managed to miss the big news of the day under this roof. Or, actually, the news was aborning, but I/we hadn’t realized it.
Some time around 5:30PM, shortly before I blogged, we had a power hit. Then, when I tried to restart my desktop, it…um…didn’t restart, but tried, and finally, appeared to be almost there.
Long story short, the Guru made a rescue mission to a computery big box store out in Gwinnett Cobb, and came back with a solid state hard drive. Or something.
Shortly thereafter, I fell asleep on the couch while the Guru performed drive-replacement surgery on my machine.
Angst reigned as it…um…wasn’t enough.
Early afternoon today, the Guru had a lightning bolt idea, updated Safari to the latest version, and all is now well. And my machine is faster, quieter, and, well, working properly!
Time Machine did its thing, I want to report. If you don’t have a leetle hard drive sitting next to your Mac with Time Machine running, well, you’ll get what you deserve. I lost maybe five minutes worth of work. And that’s all.
