This day in history from:

A close one...


For a minute there, I thought Scarlett was a goner...

A program hung on me and I could not shut her down normally. So I had to pull the plug on her (by pressing the power button for a longer time).

When I attempted a restart, she would not go further than the login screen...

I started to panic. I used the startup disk already but I did not want to reinstall the OS just yet. I could not believe that Lindsay was more reliable than Scarlett just yet (though I find myself using the forced shutdown more in Scarlett than in Lindsay, but still overall far less time than in Mandy).

I just started with a disk repair using Disk Utility in the installer disk. Everything seemed to be OK. I was running out of options. I was even looking for solutions in the web (using Scarlett downstairs).

Then, I just told myself to trust Scarlett and give her some time to boot up. And I used that time to look for solutions downstairs with Lindsay.

When I got back to Scarlett after a bit... she's already booted up! Ran a few more tests and Maintenance 3.5 (I could not run 3.6 because somehow, that version did not work for either Scarlett or Lindsay). She's doing fine now. I using her to write this entry.

Turns out Scarlett just took a longer than usual time to log in. And now, she's booting up normally, in its usual times...

I just have to learn to trust my Macs more. They have pulled through so far... which is a far cry from my PCs...

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
