After nearly a week without the internet, the WWW finally sees my return!
I’ve been MIA lately thanks to the failure of my Time Capsule. Its power supply died on me, which I guess was more or less expected. What surprised me was the fact that it lived as long a life as it did considering I had read about capsules only having life spans of about 18 months. Luckily, my AppleCare Protection Plan covered the problem and they promptly sent me a replacement Time Capsule. The only down side was I had to send them back my old one. That meant losing the 500GB of data I had on it. The guy I spoke to for tech support told me I shouldn’t keep anything important on the Time Capsule, and thankfully I hadn’t. But then it makes me wonder…if the Time Capsule is unreliable like that, what’s the point of it being marketed to backup your system? Let me just say I don’t plan on getting another Time Capsule if this one breaks down on me again.
If this had happened 5 years ago, I probably would have freaked out. I wouldn’t have been able to imagine a whole week without the internet back then. But I guess I’ve grown older, and with time I’ve come to learn that there are many other things I can occupy my time with. So during this particular week, I used my “online” time to reorganize all the music on my MacBook. By the time I was done with it, I felt a great sense of satisfaction. For anyone who spends endless amounts of time on the net, I recommend trying to go a day or two without it. You might be able to learn a thing or two about yourself from it.
I did some cooking again on Mother’s Day for my mom and my family. My co-worker gave me instructions on how to make a pan-seared salmon, but I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t turn out properly since it was my first time making fish. Thankfully, it turned out pretty well and everyone loved it.
Along with the salmon, I made lots and lots of veggies. It turned out to be a really quick, simple, cheap, and healthy dinner that got props from even my dad (who is usually pretty hard to satisfy). Looks like I’ll be making that meal again in the future.
The May Two-Four long weekend is coming up again. For me, it’s a time when old memories come creeping back into my head and it reminds me of how quickly time passes by. What are you all going to be up to? Anyone going to see fireworks? Well, I guess there won’t be any fireworks if this depressing rain keeps up. I suppose it’s not too much to ask for some sunshine this weekend, right?
