The first week of April saw the fewest updates since the terrorist attack on September 11, 2001, after which I took a break for a few weeks; I wasn’t in the mood.
Fear not, I have not been stricken by the coronavirus yet, and don’t intend to, since living alone for 38 years, “social distancing” is second nature to me. The reason updates lately have been few is because I purchased a new computer (iMac) in November 2019 and it’s been nothing but trouble, running slowly and balkily, so much so that I couldn’t get any work done. I tried reinstalling the OS twice, to no avail. I’ve decided to let it be a glorified paperweight for now, until a semblance of normality returns and I can take advantage of the year’s warranty and bring it in for servicing.
What’s more: I bought a used Panasonic Lumix camera recently and I just can’t get it to focus when zooming. (The computer was refurbished from Best Buy; I’m never trusting Best Buy again).
Now, the old machine has its problems. Its OS is too old to accept new versions of Word and Photoshop but the older versions run just fine on my old machine from 2013. Now and then, it decides to type periods uncontrollably no matter what keyboard I use; but unplugging and rebooting seems to solve that at least temporarily. If anyone has a solution (I’d rather not monkey with reinstalling the OS) let me know in Comments.
I do think I’ll avoid really lengthy posts for awhile for that reason, but posting should become more regular in the short run.
If my condition changes, I’ll update from this page.
