Back Soon (I Hope)

I've had very limited internet access all week due to problems with my computer.  After spending many hours at the Apple Store with some great Geniuses at the Genius Bar, we've come to the conclusion that the only option left is to erase the hard drive on my beloved MacBook and re-install the system from scratch (the likely cause is some corrupted files that are now affecting the system).  I'm in the process of backing up all my files which is taking forever because of the problems.  I'm writing this from my ancient e-Mac desktop (11 years and still going!), but I'm a bit limited here.

Just wanted to let you know why I'm not posting or visiting much.  Hopefully, I'll be back in shape before too long!

    Good luck! For future reference when your computer is fixed - I've used carbonite automatic back up for about four years and through 3 computers. There are others too but carbonite has worked great for me. I get mine for $50 a year. It's easy to restore backed up files. And you don't have to worry about back up yourself -- it's automatic twice daily.

    See you soon! Good luck with the computer.

  2. Sue,
    Hope and pray the fix works and that you get the computer up and running quickly.

    I really enjoy your blog.


  3. Ouch. Hope everything works out. I had that happen to my older Mac (passed down to Jessie) and after some investigating, bought a new hard drive myself and reinstalled it (thanks to a you tube tutorial) pretty easily and for less money.

    Hope you're back up and running soon.
