the end is near

May 30, 2009

The end of what? Of this annoyingly long stretch of boring, picture-less posts that mostly have to do with my computer in one way or another. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel because yesterday I spent two hours at the Apple store, and in the end I emerged with a completely functional computer and a brand new iPhone, after I offhandedly asked a question about a small issue I had been having with it.

You would think that my problems would be solved, but you would be wrong. First of all, when I brought my computer home and attempted to re-install some programs, I found out that my administrative password wasn’t being accepted. I am convinced that the Apple Genius put it in wrong, and now I have no way of finding out what it is. Supposedly I can reset it by using the operating system install disc, but in order to use that disc I need my password. Very frustrating. So I’m about to hit up my good friend Google to see what I can do about this.

There is also the issue of our internet, which decided to quit working two days ago out of the blue. Thankfully, my aforementioned brother-in-law Scott is coming over tonight to fix it. I know he’s going to fix it because he’s awesome, and in return I will provide him with dinner. It’s not enough to pay him back for all the technology-related problems he’s solved for me, but it’s a start.

If I can get these two things sorted out, which I’m confident I can, then I will just need to undergo the process of transferring all my recovered data from my external hard drive back onto my computer, organizing it, and renaming it. Easy, right?

Well, there I’ve gone and written another yawn-inducing post about my computer, something I wanted to avoid. I’m too lazy to change it now. But in other news, I survived my David-less few days, and to my great happiness he is back at home again, enjoying the weekend off while I work.

    From Rae:

    Ah! I hate it when people don’t enter one’s information correctly and one is stuck trying to figure out how they spelled one’s name (or password)!

    It is too bad that your schedule did not coincide well with your husband being home, but hopefully you will have time together soon.
