I am off to physical therapy. Roland has found some items to occupy your attention. I’ll be back but possibly exhausted.
My problems with Apple remain, but I am getting a handle on a way to use Windows to solve them.
Wednesday: I had intended to add more, but the Clippers were playing; now that the Lakers have self-destructed, the Clippers are not only the only NBA game in town; they are, under Steve Ballmer’s ownership an actual world-class basket-ball team. They lost this playoff game, but they still have a chance.

Asteroid a MILE wide to hurtle past Earth in 48 HOURS – as experts warn of MASS EXTINCTION
A COLOSSAL asteroid hurtling through space is feared to be one of the biggest EVER to threaten a collision with Earth.
By Nathan Rao
The gigantic missile thought to measure almost a mile across will brush closer than previous monsters which have sparked a global panic.
Worried astronomers warned 1999 FN53, which is an eighth of the size of Mount Everest, will skim the Earth in TWO DAYS.
A collision would be nothing short of catastrophic triggering mass destruction, earthquakes and global extinction.
The rest is just as sensational
“This was so major that we are proposing it could have been an extra-terrestrial impact, the theory of rats and fleas has little trace in this whole story.”
Black Death was ‘triggered by ASTEROID impact and could reoccur TODAY’, scientist claims
THE devastating Black Death which killed hundreds of millions of people in the 14th century may have been triggered by an asteroid impact, scientists have sensationally claimed.

I posted this on my Facebook page
a few months ago:
“Buying a new smartphone should not
make you feel dumb. Especially if
you’ve worked with computers for the
last 40 years”
Agreed. I do silly things so you don’t have to, so I ought to be grateful..
I suspect that you yowling about the iPhone will pass once you get the nonsense straighten out. I can not imagine all your contacts have been lost; as other’s have pointed out, that should not be possible. Still, the impossible does happen… but that’s what you started the old User’s column for right? So we would not have to do the dumb things. 🙂
I will say that I have been working with a Windows phone lately, and it is agony squared. Everything works, but it does so in odd, and often unattractive ways. Finding and dialing a contact for instance, requires a rather complex interaction. And Cortana simply must understand Spanish, because she rarely gets things right. “Siri – call John” works on my iPhone. Cortana the Croissant on the other hand, brought up some web pages involving prostitutes and their “Johns.” (*sigh*)
Android might be better, but don’t throw away that iPhone until you are sure. Hope things go better pretty quickly. Even with all your emotional maturity and experience, recovering from the shocks to your system have to be one heavy load to haul around.
Please take care of yourself, we all want you to be around for a long time. You are definitely my favorite curmudgeon of all time! (I mean that in a very good way of course… 🙂
Sigh. I suppose I deserve the yowl. In fact I would even go so far as.. but no. Thanks for the kind words, and yes, I am going to solve this Apple Mess.
