If it smells like chicken cooking you're holding it wrong.

I got my soldering iron out the other day to attach some speaker cables to some plugs. It didn't go well. :(

Not updated since 2006, but the new Mac-friendly Soulseek interface is horrific. bawl

I've now realised I've lost Photoshop and all my MS 'suite'.

Downloading Mojave in order to reinstall it as I speak.


F**k Apple.

Yes, absolutely. All they've done ultimately, is made life much more complicated. And I would argue the world is now suffering badly from everyone and their aunt having access to more information than anyone ever imagined possible, with no ability to analyse or filter.

I don't enjoy technology for its own sake. I have a great sense of direction so I've never had sat nav - and I was thoroughly annoyed when a friend insisted on using google maps on his phone while we walked through an area I could negotiate blindfolded. It's like a compulsion with some people - he wouldn't put it away.

I was also recently hacked off when another friend was writing a letter and asked how to spell the word 'proposition' - before I could finish she'd commanded 'Alexa, how do you spell proposition?'. 

I have a rule - if a website refuses to load more than once, the cross at the top is clicked. And don't get me started on idiots who wear headphones in the street - cars, muggers, passers by - all ignored while these halfwits stroll around.

Nothing appears to be missing and the interface isn't all that different.

Not that I'm updating for at while anyway. smug

I was on Mojave for ages.

I didn't lose anything.

I desperately want to reinstall it, but I'm not sure how to.

I've been looking at this site...

https://www.imore.com/how-downgrade-macos#boot

...but my computer won't let me download Mojave. bawl
