So my new machine, made in Dec 2013, has been installed and is up and running. Of course, like cars, computers are outdated the moment you turn them on.
All my stuff prior to September 2013 was saved by the Mac Time Machine onto an external disk. Of course, that means a year’s worth was lost and so, until I build up a new reserve of photos, I’ll have to rely on the ForgottenArchives quite a bit. Here I thought Time Machine was set it and forget it–I will have to check it from time to time.
I have someone looking at the failed disk from the old machine to see if my stuff can yet be extracted from it, which is some purchased music and a few thousand photos from the past year.
I’ll try to get back to regular postings pretty soon.
