Gay Of A Certain Age - Sadly Un-PC
I must apologize for my spotty blogging as of late,
you see, I feel like I've made a gigantic error in switching to Mac. I had an HP laptop that was working fine, except that it had suffered some exterior damage I thought would soon render it useless and worse, take a few photo & document files with it. I thought perhaps I should finally join the 21st Century and get one of these fancy Mac-Air computer books the kids are all talking about. It was pricier than repeating my HP purchase, but I thought, what the heck. Since I have gotten this Mac, I've been relegated to using time in ways I hadn't before. For example, I used to be able to take a JPG, edit it on PicMonkey, save the file in the same place, replacing the original. Now, with Mac, when I edit a pic, I have to save it in another folder, drag it to the original folder, then delete the original file. Three quick moves has turned in to six. That seems petty, but when I'm editing 100 or so pics, it's a pain! My iTunes has been a mess since the switch. I wasn't able to purchase from the iTunes store and it took me quite a while to figure out that I had to dig into my preferences or somewhere and give myself permission to purchase music for myslef on my computer. I had an external drive that holds my library, but since I purchased directly on my Mac, I can not just merge the two libraries...
Suffice it to say, I've been light with posts because my last couple of days have been hours worth of figuring stuff out, configuring and get crap together. I'm not done, but I'm able to take some time to post now!
As a Gay Of A Certain Age, I'm realizing that sometimes, new isn't better. It's okay to stick with something you know, especially when the new fangled fancy thing turns out to be a huge time suck.
I like to somethings sucked, my time is not one of them!
