Strange Days

August 7th, 2014

Yesterday afternoon my big, beautiful, two-year-old iMac suddenly died. The screen went to white, and that was that.

Two hurricanes are bearing down on the islands.

And while I was looking for updates on the hurricanes this morning, we had an earthquake.

On the positive side, the earthquake was small (4.2) and generated no tsunami. The hurricanes should wind down to tropical storms by the time they reach Maui–still dangerous! But we’re grateful for every mile-per-hour drop in wind speed — and we wish all best to those on the eastern side of the Big Island who will see actual hurricane winds.

And as for the Mac? The diagnosis was a dead video card, which the local Apple store promises will arrive Friday despite the storms. We’ll see.
