MY HARD DRIVE DIED SUNDAY EVENING (may it rest in peace) and I am still putting the pieces of Earned Runs online life together again. I paid extra to get in "front of the line" for diagnosis + therapy of the problem at an Apple authorized repair shop Monday. A new hard drive was needed, and one that would get this particular computer into survival mode was obtained and installed over the past few days.
What I did not anticipate was that the repair shop had changed the password to the computer itself without disclosing this fact to me (which of course was discovered after closing time last night)! That major emergency was taken care of this morning. Other min-emergencies are, well, emerging with every task I attempt. Passwords of numerous internet services, subscriptions, apps etc , which have been long forgotten or disremembered, were needed all at once. Also it has become painfully clear that the old operating system has been updated with something that speaks in an alien sign language to me. I cannot yet perform some vital functions (like uploading images). So the road to recovery will not be smooth; please allow a bit of time for rehabilitation to occur before the posts are back to normal.
My sister nailed it when she said, "You need a run more than ever!"
So I am starting out soon on today's training session, a simple run, knowing that it will put this situation in proper perspective, allowing me to "keep calm and carry on" (golf's British Open is this week).
