Today was a day that everything digital decided to dedigitise.
Yep, a day technology took a siesta, all except my camera luckily. No siesta for me, all the machines in my life took a snooze. Luckily, not all was Latin ghosts in my machines though.
Apple servers went down for 1% of us, stopping an Apple email account, iCloud access and a few other important pieces in my digital world. I was locked out of iCloud due to security issues. Finally, Apple rectified the problem.
I just upgraded to El Capitan OS11 after a few years of reluctance due to my CAD program not catching up (no back dating to older OS’s, but rather them requiring users to pay for expensive CAD upgrades).
The newly updated computer decided to not allow any of my email accounts to work. Little business gets done when Time Warner email accounts don’t work. Took some time, but I fixed all of them. Photoshop took some work to get it securely connected since that too is cloud-based and connected to my business email account.
Then the iPhone started roaming internationally even though roaming was disabled. I made a call to AT&T and they had a problem getting me back in on US soil. They explained I will be getting a very large bill, but to call them back for the adjustment. Ya right, like I am going to pay for hours of international calls and Internet use made from my US-based home office!
It really seemed like a digital conspiracy since the iPad, iPhone, laptop and Mac Pro desktop all were affected due to the connection of the apps and associated security in the cloud.
I spent some time painting after getting all the technology back in working order. Took some garden photos but had no enthusiasm in that either. I should have worked in the garden since it needs weeding, but not much desire for that job. At least the garden view was good medicine.
In a few days, I will post the May garden pics, front and back. I took photos from the beginning to the end of May. The garden is exploding in color like it does each May. I am one that much prefers seeing the garden as a whole and over time rather than a few shots of a flower here and there like in this post. You get to see the garden make a gradual change into the June blooms. I will likely do the same for June into July.
