My MacBook Pro croaked so I’m out of commission blogging-wise and photo-editing-wise…for a few days. It’s not permanently dead; its logic board failed even though it’s only 2 and a half years old. So, for an exorbitant price, I’m getting it fixed and it will hopefully be sprung from captivity by Friday, at the latest, and good as new…I hope. I do have Carbonite online backup so my photos were safe but, as it is, the hard drive is apparently okay anyway. Still, it’s sort of unnerving to rely on a computer so much and wonder if you’ll ever see your files again.
Oddly, the laptop is my 6th Mac and the first one that ever had a serious problem. I still have my first Mac from 1994 and it works. And I have 3 more in my possession and they all work (admittedly slowly and not very well online). In fact, I’m on my reliable 6+ year old MacBook right now which has functioned as our backup on several occasions the past couple of years (it still works fairly well online). It doesn’t have the image-editing software I like to use, though, so I have no photos to post at the moment.
Back very soon, I hope. Meanwhile, I’ll do some blog-hopping.
