The things that have been complicated about transitioning to a new Mac.
2) Time Machine couldn't pickup where it left off on the other computer.
3) Time Machine is taking forever…. I.e., Apple stuff is hard, everything else (The third party stuff.) has gone well.

Except for the part that's exactly backwards, that makes sense.

Be assured that you will continue to have access to all your current and previous statements in the PDF format.

My Backup Routine
- Accidental or mistaken changes or deletions of files or data. I.e., losing address book entries, deleting files I don't think I'll need, but wish I had a week later - that sort of thing.
- Hardware failure. The only hard drive I've had fail on me, in recent memory was when I worked at PowerSchool. That hard drive failure was concurrent with a blip in their backup process and I lost about three months worth of work. Hardware can fail and it won't happen at a cosmically convenient time.
- Theft, fire or natural disaster at home, which is where my data lives.

Wing-Nutzoids Stand up for Sarah
"Our customers are thinking people," said Nathan Emetson, a bookseller at Pendragon Books in Oakland. "They're not into reading drivel." There's not a single copy on the shelf. Embretson said no one has asked for it except for one guy, who was kidding.
"When you live in the fag-mafia territory, you live by their rules."
"Can’t wait till our side gets back in control and drops the hammer on San Fran. We’ll make the whole city one big prison for rapists and child molesters. It’s logistically efficient."
"I was thinking neutron bomb.
My grandma lives in Palo Alto and has a few years left in her, so I'd like to spare that town, but otherwise, I'm all for nuking the Bay Area from orbit! "
"This is Pelosi’s District... And this is why she thinks she can be as left as left can be — they’d never vote her out!"
(Actually, it's not Pelosi's District. But, this isn't the fact-based crowd.)
"I am sure that Sarah is crying over this..I really do not care what the queers of SF think.. and I doubt anyone else does either..One day the earth open up and swallow all of you pathetic pieces of garbage up…"
"Lest we forget, this is how the “Reality Based” community operates. How they can claim that is beyond all logical thinking. Liberalism is a mental disorder and that is the true reality."
