Personal Update 10/30/2012
Well, first I had computer problems. Then I got sick. Thursday, I’m off to prison.
Somehow an important file — I’m thinking a file in the main Library folder on my MacBook Pro — got corrupted. For a long time, I just lived with it. The primary problem I experienced was that I could not connect with the Apple App store. Not a problem: except I could not get software updates for the software I’d purchased that way.
While Apple’s Time Machine backup is an amazing program, I’ve found it hard to access the (invisible) user library on my backup. I just figured out this afternoon how to use FileZilla to find the files in the user library. I have been replacing them slowly — only as needed. The add-ons and settings for the web design software that I use for this site have only been fully restored this afternoon.
So, things are mostly back up and running on my computer right now.
On Friday and Saturday I was sick and feeling awful. It was a virus wreaking havoc with my digestive system.
With one thing and another, I’ve been away from this blog. It’s not that there haven’t been things to write about. It’s that either the computer wasn’t working right, or I wasn’t working right — or both.
So, I’ve been experiencing a bit of a computer fast lately. Actually, it’s been kind of nice to get away from it for a while.
I hope to be back at it next week. We’ll see….
