Since last Tuesday (4/29) when my hard drive suddenly crashed, life just hasn't been the same. I've had to rely on (gasp!) PC computers and figure out what to do with my time apart from pla ... er, I mean working on the computer. Not to mention all those documents - family pictures and movies, church-related documents, iTunes music, etc. - that I lost in the crash. (I had good intentions of backing things up. Really! It's just that that procrastination gene kept kicking in, and in the end, it just, sorta kicked me in ... the end. ;-)
But now, Mac is back! And with the OS X Leopard designed for dummies just like me - that is, it has this awesome, automatic back up feature called Time Machine. Just plug in an external hard drive, and presto, instant back up. Oh, and so many other cool features that I'm eager to sink my teeth into. (Probably a really good thing that one of my seminary students is preaching this Sunday! ;-)
I know, for some this latest cat in the Mac OS litter is hardly new. When I had to - yes, had to - get my Mac last Fall, I just missed both the Leopard's arrival date as well as the "grandfathering in time" of a couple of weeks before the new OS debut. So, please pardon me while I bask in the glories of the sparkling new OS. Why sparkling? Can't you see the cool time portal in the image above? And when you have open applications, the cute little dock icons have that little sparkly thingy under them to tell you, "Hey, I'm open and ready to be utilized."
It's great to have Mac back! Now, I'll just have to find some other way to use my procrastination gene. :-)
