Mavericks

With all the updates being posted to applications on my iMac, I have noticed it getting slower and slower (and it was already slow to begin with).  This happened when they started updating Snow Leopard apps for the move to Lion, which means this was not unexpected.

Last night I bit the bullet and installed Mavericks, hoping it would help with some of the memory management issues.

So far it's been pretty messy.  Apple totally hosed up the Gmail interface in the Mail.app.  I am plugging away at things and I hope once all the dust settles and everything is indexed, it will work again.  We shall see.

In the meantime, I ponder doing a fresh install of Mavericks rather than an upgrade...  not sure I have the time to spend messing with such a project.  The in-place update has taken longer to slog through than expected.  But it may be necessary if things continue to run so slow.

Stay tuned.

Commenty Fix

Just got a note from Pixy.  It seems the spam filter is what was causing the problem.  He thinks it is fixed but it might be slow to post comments.  I tried two test comments, one of them posted the other disappeared.  Have a go if you like and let me know via email if you can't get comments to post.

Thanks!

Comment issues

Apparently there are issues when trying to comment.  I have an email that I sent to Pixy about it.  Hopefully he can get it resolved soon.

Tech Tip of the Day

If you have a cell phone - back it up.  Doesn't matter what kind of phone, figure it out.  Even a flip phone of the old school.  If you have phone numbers in it, make a pencil and paper list if you must. If you have photos, find a way to save the ones you want. Any other data - make sure you have copies somewhere. 


This way when something goes south, you have the data somewhere and can restore it.
