Who ever said things can't get worse had a happy life.  Trying to adjust to AOL email, I managed to completely screw up the emails I did have!  My Mac Mini finally died, and replacement I had stashed away had no power cord.

Well, of COURSE it was different.  Apple changes everything as fast as they can.  If they could make household current suddenly change from 120 volts to 150 volts, they would.

So I went of to buy a new power cord.  About 5 years too late, it seems.  Apple went back to the cord for the Mac Mini I have that barely runs a few years ago.

My old Mac Mini is still running after cooling down for an hour., but it took another hour  to get the restore feature working.  It has worked easily before, but apparently, it get relly confused trying to over-write the new email system.

I've lost 1/3 of all my old emails.  Verizon said they were sorry (I was talking to them will I typed this.  I'll be trying to recover them.

But I may be absent for a few days.  I have only so much time I can spend on the computer and I've spent over 24 hours at it today.

The cats need attention, I need to eat, and I need to sleep.  Hopefully things will be better in a few days but I wouldn't bet any money on it.  I'm  p***sed.  And tired...

And I just got several legit emails warning of increasing Mac viruses. 

And I just learned the power cord costs $100.  That's it, I'm going back to a PC.

Too complex for me, Mark! I hate it when I have computer problems - I hope you get yours sorted out soon.
