Horrible Computer Wensday

TBT:  OK, my computers are totally screwed up.  The Apple folks got my new one working.  It was the power cord.  In spite of the fact that that they seem identical and plug in the same, there is some differences in "power rate".  When I used the new one, everything came online.  Dang I hate it when techs make me feel stupid.

But that's why they are on the "help" side of the telephone and I'm not.  Still, it's pretty hard to be told the solution is simple.  It's that ONE thing they ask and you think "OMG, the ONE thing I didn't try"...

But then I discovered the new computer was a piece of junk!  My OLDEST Mac Mini (2014) had 300 Gb of storage memory.  The CURRENT one (2017) has about 500 Gb.  I only bought the new one because I misunderstood what the disk scanner program was telling me about available memory.

The new one has only 128Gb!  The NEWEST one can't hold even the OLDEST one.  My fault completely.  I assumed any new one had more memory that an older one.  It is a Cloud computer.  And I can't return it because I have corrupted it with some of my migrated files.

So what I need is my CURRENT one working.  That's the one with the dead power port.  Which means I have a reservation to bring it to to Best Buy next Tuesday so that they can send it to an Apple repair site and THEY will get to it in about a week, and then it gets slowly returned to me.

We are talking maybe a month.  So we are going to be non-email for a while.  I may explore my Windows 10 computer, but I don't understand it very well.  It is going to be very weird not checking my email a few times a day.  But in case we go "missing", I offer this...

To tune of “You’re A Rich Girl” by Hall and Oates…


I’m a Good Girl, And I try so hard
To make Daddy happy each and every day.
I can rely on my Daddy’s care.
I can rely that he's always there.

I’m a Good Girl and he tells me so,
Even if I sometimes tap on Ayla’s hip.
I try ta be nice but its just so hard
So he kinna sorta unnerstands I slip.

I’m a Good Girl, I would like ta be better
But it really isn’t quite my nature to.
I sure depend on my Daddy’s love.
I really thrive on my Daddy’s love.

I’m a Good Girl, but it gets so hard
Cause I really wanta be his only cat.
I‘m so completely attached to him.
All I really want, is to have just him.

I’m a Good Girl, and I try to like
Marley brofur, sisfur Ayla just like him.
But who am I foolin cause I want them gone
Just so I could finally have Daddy alone!

I’m a Good Girl, But I know that Dad
Would be saddy if others moved away.
So I have to live with the other two
Have to be nice to the other two.

I’m a Good Girl, and I try so hard
To make Daddy happy each and every day…
