Joanna Bourne, Historical Romance
An exciting weekend in which I set up my external hard drive.
On a Mac this means buying a black plastic box the size of a good novel, fiddling through my barely finite collection of twiddly wires, and then blindly following the directions of Some Guy on the Internet.
The problem with getting advice from YouTube videos is that they’re all for systems five or seven years old. Every two minutes the nice geek with the oddly untrained voice tells you to, for instance, “Click on Options” and you discover there is no Options key because they threw that out in the 2015 OS.
Once again, the world betrays you.
You prove inadequate to a task that is completed handily by 16-year-olds.
(Don’t ask me about my cell phone.)
So you go to Google to figure out where Mac has hidden the action you wish to undertake. And you
have to decide whether you want your GUID (whatever that is) to be a table or a map.
Half an hour later you close your eyes and pick at random
because the hell with it anyway.
This is like ordering in an Azerbaijani taverna far, far off the beaten path where nobody speaks any language with which you have a nodding acquaintance,
except less prone to moments of delightful surprise.
Or like when your car has an extra bobble on the PRSNL to put the stick in and you have no idea what it does but the car seems to run okay either way so you ignore it.
I now have an operating back up and a Time Machine
or I don’t
and I am back to limping along with my severely crippled version of Word except for (probably) backup.
This is not exactly adulting, but I muddle along.
RITA-winning author Joanna Bourne writes historical fiction set in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France and Regency England. It was a time of love and sacrifice, clashing ideals, and really cool clothing.
