So I am in the US and so I am downloading movies and all that internet stuff. This trip I updated to the new Mac OS. What a disaster.
I downloaded the thing and it asked me for my Apple ID and password. Well I am fairly dumb and keep my password list on my Mac. Of course I could not see my list as my Mac was asking for my ID and password.
Well, it could only be one of a few passwords or names. I made a little chart and went through each possible name and password until I cracked it. It was bit of a panic, and I made an appointment with my local Genius Bar for help. But in the end I did crack the code myself.
So I wandered over to the Genius Bar this evening to chat with the guys there. We had a great time. The Head Geek told me that my transition to the new OS was one of the smoothest he had seen. Something about my hard drive being in good shape, I did not understand all his comments.
In any case, I got some small added functionality for the price of an afternoon of monkeying around with the laptop. If you are about to upgrade, make sure you know your Apple ID and password.
It was no fun but all’s well that ends well.
