Right now, I'm sitting at home, typing this blog entry on my Mac. It's as if nothing happened--all my files are right where they've always been, I've not lost anything, and this debacle this week was merely a bump in the road.
I reinstalled the operating system and archived all of the data, which is an automatic function. What's remarkable is that the computer store wanted to charge me $215 to do it. They said it would be about an hour and a half of labor. Well, I did it myself, and the time it took was merely waiting around while the computer did its thing. Seems a little suspect...but the receptionist was remarkably beautiful, and I told her so, which made her day, which made my day, though coffee with her would have been even better, but she's attached. Oh well.
