[almost back] with friends like this

I'd like to thank the person or persons who hit my Mac yesterday and wiped out the MacOS. My mate asked what I expected with a post like the last one.

You did well, my friend. It's almost back but it's been an effort. More later.

UPDATE: 04:04, Sunday, local time

Finally off and running with the latest version of MacOS with lots of goodies and though it took 11 hours to complete the job, it was worth it. As for whether I'd run a post like the last one again - on occasions, yes. The number of people who read it, as distinct from commenting, was gratifying but it wouldn't want to be all the time, mind.

Now, a little post on smoking, time for a snooze and then some more "accessible" posts later today [providing I don't get hit again].

Have a lovely Sunday, readers.

Sorry to hear about the sabotage.
I hope that I don't get the blame for that, as I seem to for EVERYTHING that goes on in the sphere( which I have no control of). :)

Thanks for that, Uber. Advice yesterday from the Apple guy was that it did seem to be a hit from either malicious software or someone hacking in, which is possible in certain ways, even with a Mac.

Sorry you have had this trouble but what is MacOS??

MacOS is the very clever system that all sensible people would be using if they could afford it. It is just the Apple equivalent of the Microsoft Operating System. Just bigger, better, less.
