The Big Bad Tech Support Wolf

You'd think this was Manhattan, but it isn't -- it's Saint Plotniko under a crescent moon, shot from Treasure Island a few years ago. Plot has installed a new solid state hard drive in his MB Pro, meaning everything had to be reinstalled. When that happens you run into old IPhoto libraries. You also spend a lot of time on the phone.

Imagine that you're here and Grandmother's house is there, but to get from here to there you have to pass through the Forbidden Forest where the Big Bad Tech Support Wolf lurks. He won't eat you but he will tell you, in a language you cannot understand, to do very simple things that you cannot figure out. But eventually you will talk to sub-wolves and sub-sub wolves and eventually you will find one who speaks English. And then you will arrive safely at Grandma's with your basket of freshly baked solid state hard drives and lightning fast connectivity.

Grandma will be watching Jeopardy and won't be the least bit interested in your modern booshwah. But you will convince yourself the journey was well worth all those wolves.

Wow - that's an impressive undertaking! Congrats on surviving. Did the computer previously have a traditional hard drive? Do you have more space now or was this just to speed things up? And was this just a way to deal with the horror that was the Lakers playoff run?

Thanks for adding perspective and humor to my endless battle with Geek Squad and a gazillion subwolves masquerading and friendly vampires.
