Back with Mac

mbp-minThe new Windows computer I wrote about in an earlier post, was really good, but it had serious issues with overheating. Without doing anything at all on it, it got so hot so I couldn’t hold my hand beside it on the desk. The fan was going almost constantly. I googled it, found that oodles of people had this problem with this model, but I didn’t find any solutions. Except opening it up and vacuum, which I, of course, had NO intention of doing — it was brand new, for Pete’s sake!

Considering the fact that it was just that; brand new, and I already sensed problems … I made a decision last night … I’ll turn it back in. I had 90 days, no questions asked.

Now I have my MacBook back, I hope and pray it will work for a long time. Those issues, with the graphic/video card [or whatever], only appear intermittently and I don’t know how serious that is. It’s not as if it renders it unusable. Several days can go by without any symptoms at all. It will turn two years old in September.

I feel good now, that the decision is made, and I’m back. It was an interesting journey with Win8.1 though … I’ve learnt something: ยซYou can never go home!ยป … meaning, nothing will ever be the same and that’s true for computer operating systems too ๐Ÿ™‚ย cat sleep

…and here’s McDuff, resting on the couch — my place, of course — after an exhausting trip to see his family doctor. He had his annual check-up and his pedicure. His claws grow into the pads when he doesn’t have them clipped, and I can’t do it myself.

I was so proud of him; he didn’t pee in his carriage all the way out there … not until we were sitting in the waiting area, with all the animals around him. Then, he couldn’t hold it back. They have two cats walking around there, Percy and Nermal … they’re really cool cats, but they were sniffing around his cage. He’s never met any other animals so I guess that’s a shocker each time.

  1. I am sorry the PC did not work but it is best to get a refund! I am glad the MAC is working for you…being without a PC would not be fun ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
    Poor McDuff being startled by his own kind!!! I am glad he got his mani/pedi & a good report also.
    July 7th Siddhartha Henry goes for a FRVCP vaccine…necessary…VERY necessary……
    ((hugs)) Sherri-Ellen

      1. Between our glasses issues & PC issues we sure have been busy>> how do we manage to get anything done??? ๐Ÿ˜‰
        Probably Distemper shot given?? Mind you McDuff does not really need any shots as he is never outside or near other cats.
        As Siddhartha Henry had Rhino Virus & Panleukopenia Virus he needs the FRVCP shot to boost his Immune system for both those viruses plus Calci Virus & there is a Distemper component to the shot. He should have had it months ago…his Brother was given the shot in February & I took Siddhartha Henry in to SAME Vet that month….makes me wonder just how reliable she actually is…sighs

        1. McDuff has had the same family doctor since we moved here. I like her a lot as a person, but I don’t know anything because he hasn’t been ill … only pedicure. But the clinic’s been around for twenty years, so I guess she’s doing something right LOL

            1. We were so lucky … I chose it randomly in the phone book, because of the name; ‘All Creatures’. Sarah is such a pleasant person, and you can feel that she really cares.

              1. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I get it! “All Creatures”….
                Dr Dave watched the show & I bought him the series of books in paperback plus the REAL James Herriot’s biography for a gift. I remember when Dr Dave stood for ‘all creatures’ ๐Ÿ˜‰
                I am so glad you & McDuff have Sarah….

                  1. He traded in the “James Herriot’ philosophy for the “let’s make a lot of money” philosophy! I was so shocked/hurt/surprised/upset when he did not stand up for me to his practice partner…
                    If I ever see he,r she had better move away fast! She did Accupuncture & herbal meds on Nylablue for 1 1/2 yrs & she got paid well for her treatments! What a*itch to turn her back on me & Siddhartha Henry. I am telling everyone I know what I have been thru’. I hope they lose more business; it will serve them right! What goes around comes around>>>>
                    As for the series it has ALOT of dry British humour an is not an action packed sort of show. It is a classic tho’!
