iclouds, photos, techs, oh my


this photo was taken early on wednesday evening
 its a good thing i took it 
because
 later that evening
 my computer 
was
 'taken over' 
by 
apple's uber cloud techs

they'll be figuring out
 what the heck is going on
 why the iCloud isn't communicating
 with
 my photo apps and vice versa 

part of the investigation
digging into the why not 
required freezing 
the iCloud 
cutting it off 
stopping 
it from
interacting with
my iPhone and iMac 

 all my over 23,000+ photos
(hard to believe
 i have 
deleted
 or
 saved to a thumb drive 
over
 6000 photos
since
 sunday)
are safe in the apple vaults 

they will 
be 
returned
downloaded
to 
my various devices
after
 everything is working properly

it was fascinating
 to discover 
how many times
 i have taken the same photo 
of the church on the corner 
of WTC
of the cat(s)
of 
well 
a lot of things

i also discovered
 its not so hard to be ruthless
to delete photos
to acknowledge 
not 
every 
shot 
is
 a winner

i discovered
there were duplicate 
occasionally triplicate 
copies 
of 
the same image 
not
 that i shot it more than once 
but 
that it uploaded more than once

the fabulous brandon
 assures me
 the uber tech group 
will have some answers for me on friday

 i love puzzle solving

  2. Good luck. I have 46,000 photos of Flickr with maybe 5% of them worth keeping.
    I had to disable the apple cloud on my pc because it was messing everything up.

  3. Ah, computers... too expensive to knock against the desk when they start going bonkers!
