Computer Woes and Wonders ๐Ÿค–

The proverbial Sad Mac.

The proverbial Sad Mac. I know what makes him sad.

So far, so good. I have my old MacBook Pro back from the shop, all 17 inches of screen glory in a battered case, but now with a brand-new solid-state hard drive. Itโ€™s almost like having a new machine, in that there are a million fiddly bits to get just right again, and itโ€™s also really close to a nervous breakdown because itโ€™s still freezing up and worse. I had some bad moments earlier in the evening that made me think the money spent on the hard drive would have been better spent on the lottery โ€ฆ and then things settled down again.

The proverbial Sad Sack.

The proverbial Sad Sack. I know nothing about him.

For future reference, if you donโ€™t see any action around here for a day or two, I will be blogging at my old WordPress blog. Iโ€™ll put a permanent link in the footer as well, and I hope you check out that site before giving up on me entirely. I made this committment, see โ€ฆ to write something decent and fun every single day, and thatโ€™s what I will do โ€ฆ either from my phone and my thumbs or my iPad โ€ฆ I will find a way to say hello and maybe even something clever. Itโ€™s how I pay my rent here on earth, and Iโ€™m superstitious about it.

Next up: a Thanksgiving extravaganza, including all the fixinsโ€™ and more. Iโ€™m saving kitchen scraps to make some fine textiles, and I will be taking photos. Plus, there will be mordant. My transition to a medieval kitchen is proceeding nicely. ๐Ÿ”
