It's over a month since my last post and I have been trying to rectify that but as we know sometimes life just takes over!
Apart from being busy with so much going on, (both good and bad) we have recently returned from a very peaceful and relaxing holiday. Nearly 600 photos for a week (it's OK I will not be posting them all, but will be posting some of course!).
A lot of my IT/Computer time has been taken up with my I-pad. Having had my computer wiped last year I was devastated to have the same thing happen to my I-pad the day before my holiday.
This all happened because I wanted to transfer my music library (which I had taken a year to upload again since the wipe-out) onto my tablet to take away with me. I-Tunes would not allow me to do it until I upgraded to I.O.S. 9 from 8. In trying to do this it would not accept my password and user name and because one is only allowed an allotted number of tries my tablet was disabled by Apple.
I was horrified to learn from the Apple store that the only solution (because of security) was to have it wiped clean and taken back to factory settings. I was horrified. Added to that the i-pad was not backed up in the Cloud. I had not known that one had to set the tablet to do this.
Having taken almost a year to get my computer back to where it was I was ready to throw the whole thing out of the window!! Like with all of these things I did not know exactly what I had lost until I came to use things.
The biggest loss was around 5,000 photos. Some of these photos were on my computer but not all and the hardest thing to accept was all the videos of my Grand children. Those golden moments when one just had the i-pad to hand and starts shooting! The 1,000 songs did not matter as I had just finished loading onto my computer from C.D.'s.
Apps can be downloaded from the Cloud as they automatically stay there (there were 45 in all) but all had to be re-registered etc. One of my favourite Apps, the Glo Bible, for which I paid £25, will not allow me in except for the basic Bible text therefore not being able to access the thousands of Biblical photos, interactive tours, maps and videos, even though I have it on my computer. Fortunately my documents are still in the Pages App. I am not talking about games apps by the way but useful things like Maps, Kindle, Google Earth, Facetime, Calender, Weather, radio, etc. etc. etc.
At the same time I had a very genuine looking E-mail from my provider telling me that my mobile phone was to be cut off the following day because of not being able to process my payments. It turned out to be a dangerous Spam trying to get all my bank and security details.
All this after a neighbour crashed their car backwards into the front of my house before abandoning it!
Well I am sure that You have had enough of this so I will end on a pleasanter note by posting the following pictures of the October roses that greeted us on return from holiday.
Back soon with holiday pics
