This hasn’t been my favorite week in general, but it was made worse with me finally deciding to bring my ailing iMac desktop in for repairs. It ended up needing to be completely erased and restored. It took the entire week, and they needed my Time Machine in order to do the backup. Giving that up for a couple of days meant I had no internet. Today, I picked up my computer and router/backup, got home and realized I didn’t have the power cord. Fortunately, they found it at the Apple Store, so back I went. Came home to what I expected to be a fully restored computer, but instead found that my mail accounts were missing, my passwords were gone, and just about everything about the new operating system is different. Fortunately, I got connected to a great supervisor at AppleCare who stayed on the phone with me for over 3 hours. During that extended session, we got some of the computer back into usable shape. Unfortunately, I’ve got a long way to go. 🙁
