The benefit of living an active virtual life is the opportunity to meet (sort of) people from around the world with similar interests. My reviews of Captain America and Thor began dialogues that keep my thought cells firing.
The dark side of a virtual life is the memory it saps, not in an Alzheimer’s way, but in a my-160-GB-hard-drive just isn’t enough. I’ve added a 1TB external drive to warehouse the large files. I’ve done the shift from the internal to the external. That got me out of the danger zone, but hasn’t really solved my problem.
iTunes is playing hard to get. Apple, like nearly every IT help desk in cyberspace, wants me to self-diagnose and fix without human intervention. So I’ve spent a day and a half and $50 US to upgrade drivers. Incompatibility may be a problem too big for eHarmony to fix. My on-going memory loss (virtual, not mine personally) is probably the real culprit.
Further problem-solving will be delayed, because a real-life challenge occurs in about 90 minutes. The water in my building is being shut down so the plumber can make some major repairs. Wish me luck.
