This is a (slight) continuation of my thoughts related to stuff going wrong in general from the last post. Since the end of last month, I have been fighting/poking my desktop machine, and I have it now in a configuration where it “works,” or at least is working well enough for me to be able to do something like this.
I’m sitting here in front of it! I’m typing words! The part of the hard drive system that was failing is now just basically bypassed, turned off, still inside the machine but unused. Nothing dangerous about that, right?
Ah, I never really can tell if my sarcasm makes it “onto the page” and out in front of your eyes.
I think what I’m trying to do is get it to a place where it’s “safe” (enough?) to use and I can keep using it for, oh, let’s say until an entirely newly-designed iMac comes out. How many months might that be? Oh, that many, huh? Hmm. Hmmmmmm.
We’re in a good place to just relax and enjoy the delights of December and make sure our vote(s) count in the Georgia US Senate Runoff. Not just for ourselves. Not just for our neighbors. But for America as a whole, gosh darnit! We really don’t need any more McConnell-led delay. We have things to get done. Don’t get me started.
