Stupidly I upgraded my OS X system yesterday and now find my Mac is terribly slow. Fortunately there is someone visiting who is expert in all things Apple and the result of an examination of my 6-year-old computer is that the memory is unable to cope with the complexities of the new system.
I say fortunately because my family has decided I ought to have a new iMac and I've been sternly informed the gift will be my birthday and Christmas presents for the next 5 years.
New memory could have been purchased for my current computer but is it worth spending £150 on an old machine? Hopefully I'll be able to sell this one once I've reinstalled the original OS X system and cleared it of all the debris which gathers on a regular basis.
Disappointingly, due to the holiday, Apple can't deliver the new machine for a couple of weeks and because I've no desire to go to Aberdeen or Glasgow to collect one, patience is the name of the game. I will try to use Blogger on my iPad but it's not great, so please bear with me until I'm back to having a computer which responds, once again, to my every whim.
Of course, I now have the perfect excuse to post some of my favourite videos!
