Move along, nothing to see here. No, seriously.

Someone just shoot me, already.

After my laptop was out of commission for ten days when the hard drive died, I finally got it back with all my data intact. Only to encounter a problem with permissions that even Apple didn’t have a clue how to solve.

Fortunately, my Mac guy was able to figure out a way to get everything working beautifully again.

Until tonight, that is.

Suddenly, programs that worked fine last night aren’t working at all, and I’m having to reboot my computer every few minutes.

So once again, I give up on posting anything today.

I’ll be back at the shop again this morning, for about the 20th time in the last two weeks. And hopefully, we’ll be back in business again tomorrow.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go beat my head against the wall.



  1. I offered to supply a hammer to fix your laptop. You should have accepted!

    Good luck!

    There used to be a “repair permissions” in Disk Utility. Dunno if “First Aid” does those checks now.

  3. Thanks for writing the blog …. I read it every day ….

    For a temporary fix …. he whispers …… GO MAINSTREAM …. GET A PC!

    It is interesting how we have become integrated with our computers …. remember typewriters and pencils?

    What are we going to do after a North Korean EMP attack?

    Imagine the future when the cognitive electronics are physically embedded like my Biotronik pacemaker….. Ouch!
