I’m Thinking of You, Technically

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.

It’s ¬†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.

Or both?

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.
