(Not so) secret mission.

Tuesday, January 14th, 2020

There was a time when I devoured books like this one (written in the late 1980s by Mac programming legend Scott Knaster) in order to glean new insights into the ultimate Box of Mystery, the Mac computer on my desktop.

Nowadays, my mastery of these mysteries (such as it is) is one of those things people value about me. Also, despite my impatience with so many things, I seem sufficiently patient to check every IMAP setting and every iCloud checkbox and every OS or application version that might be standing in the way of true zen computer happiness, where all your bookmarks are where they are supposed to be and the email on your phone matches your desktop.

So I’m looking forward to seeing an old buddy from Turner days tomorrow for coffee and tech support. Happy to help.
