Sunday Night

**Finally broke down at around 900 and turned the AC on.**
It was almost 85 in here. Humidity was ridiculous. Then someone started the BBQ pit down below. Smoke was drifting in through my open door and windows. THAT was the straw that broke the camel's back. The fact they were BURNING whatever they were cooking was a big factor as well.

17th of November. Sheesh. Don't know why I act like I'm so surprised. I'm not.

**Lesson Learned**
That hard drive crash really hosed my music collection. This is going to be more work than I initially thought. Fortunately Apple has now made it just a bit easier to download your previously purchased items. You still have to work at it, but it isn't as bad as it used to be. I just had to dig a little deeper in the iTunes store. Good grief! I'll be keeping proper backups. And treating my external drives a little nicer.

That is bad you lost all your music. I'm glad you can get a lot of it back, even if painfully.

Hope the weather stays good for you. (As in no tornadoes etc.) Bah on the barbecue!

Ah well. What can I say? Lesson learned.

Yup! Gotta shut the windows. It is late in the year but I know people who do it even in the snow. They're outside frying the turkey too.

Yes too when it comes to backups. I use Backup Maker and the incremental setting. If something is new or added it gets backed up.

Agreed on both counts. I'm going to see if time machine will do it.

I don't mind people grilling, but did you have to burn it?

I know! Some people think that they can cook, or cook out, but really don't know how to do it.

82 and infinite humidity is just too much. I put the AC on, too.
