I’m not sure how much I’ll be “here” this week.
I purchased a new computer a day or two prior to Thanksgiving.
My attempt at migrating data was partially successful.
The part that wasn’t successful was met with error messages.
Next, I had Apple complete the migration.
That didn’t work either.
In fact, they “accidentally” gave me back my computer the exact same way I had left it with them.
I’ve got an appointment to see them again today so they can try again.
Next, Adobe’s “Creative Cloud” stopped working.
I spent about two days corresponding with Adobe help people before it was fixed.
But … it was fixed.
Next, my entire Adobe Lightroom Catalog (around 100,000 photos) crashed.
I’ve never had that happen before, and I probably said a lot of expletives very loudly.
I’ve had a frustrating week or two.
very difficult impossible to work without a computer, and it’s a very busy time of year.
I’m going to meet with a “genius” again today.
I’m pretty sure he/she will be keeping both of my computers for a day or two … or three.
In the meantime, while I’ve been wrestling with technology …
Somehow, it became December 8th!
I will be out of town for four days between now and Christmas.
(Because I thought it would be a good idea to cut down on the days I can get stuff done between Thanksgiving and Christmas?)
I’ve been so busy fighting with technology, I haven’t been working on any of my (many!) Christmas to-dos.
I’ve pretty much resigned myself to Not-Even-Close-To-A-Rockwell-Christmas this year.
I might need wine.
Or a massage.
But, truly, I don’t have time for either.
I will be back with my next blog post as soon as I have a computer again.
If I can, I will try to do mini-updates in the meantime …
But, at this point, I don’t dare promise anything.
