Lucky me, new machine -- Day 125

Walk: R/T Mindful Body
Distance: 8 blocks and teach class


I thought when the time came I'd get an Apple.  But that was a bit glitchy for my other software.  So, here is my new machine.  So far, so good.  And so easy.  I remember 'in the beginning' when you practically had to order the computer part by part. You'd ask around until you had a list of what to buy and order without a single clue what you'd ordered or why.  Don't even ask about how you went about seeking help for the wild goose chase on the screen when/if you got the machine up and running.  A new computer meant about one month out of your life to try to make it a manageable part of your life - and not a pleasant month, pretty much guaranteed derangement.

So, I feel lucky. And lucky I could solve my hacker/virus problem in this way.  So many individuals and small businesses couldn't do that which makes me sad for them and more upset at the way the hackers mindlessly or possibly maliciously upset or worse people's lives.
