    And it worked! Still have to reinstall a bunch of stuff, but otherwise, all came out well. So, that was good. Thanks to folks here. Advice let me calm down to do what I needed. Which no repairs...
  2. Thanks for that. I’m staring at the screen now,...

    Thanks for that. I’m staring at the screen now, and it’s say 22 supposed minutes remaining to the High Sierra upgrade. So, obviously, Yosemite installed fine. And now HS...

    Just a mini-update. I got into recovery and erased things, so, now install Yosemite. Naturally, I’ll upgrade from there. As said, luckily, my important documents, pictures and what not are already...

    Yeh, I know it may truly be dead, but I will try. If it is, then, there’s an authorized repair place near my office; at worst, I’ll pony up for an SSD. It’ll be a business expense so no skin off my...

    No extra Mac, sadly. And as said, I know I needed a TM backup, but didn’t. Which just goes to show. As stated, so far, recovery options haven’t worked. Last thing I’ll try is to erase the HD maybe,...

    Update Again: tried the recovery option I noted above, and I wanted it to install Yosemite, which I guess it did. When it tried to start up I got the install screen again, and it tells me I can’t...

    Yeah, I know, and I can get that here, just...I’m a university teacher, in the midst of finals and term papers. I literally don’t have time for this! As said, while no TM backup, all my actual class...

    Moar update: I used Cmd+Opt+Shift+R to recover, made it finally to recovery mode, and now I’m running First Aid on the main Macintosh HD. So...we’ll see.

    Update: First Aid, naturally, did nothing....
  9. Further note: tried Internet Recovery, got the...

    Further note: tried Internet Recovery, got the spinning globe which loaded, then the computer finished that process, gave me the regular Apple loading logo, and when that finished, I got a blank...
  10. I did the latest High Sierra upgrade that came...

    I did the latest High Sierra upgrade that came out yesterday, so, for the OS. I do not have a current backup (I have backed up data, but not a Time Machine backup). Did not do a clean install after...
  11. Massive problem - after latest update, Mac doesn’t open Finder, top bar doesn’t load.

    So, updated last night, didn’t really get a chance to use the computer. Fired it up this morning and, yeah, nothing works. Like, it turns on, I get the usual Apple logo to load, and type in my...
  12. 2 Issues - iPad flickering on/off for charging, and not transferring apps to computer

    So, as I said, there are two issues here, between my wife's iPad Air and her Windows 10 machine.

    1. The iPad flickers on and off when connected to the computer now. So, it'll slip in and out of...

    I think you meant MrBossible, mate! I've had my Mac Mini for almost two years now. As I said in my post, I like that Macs more or less work without hassle (unlike my wife and daughter's Windows 10...

    Pretty much my advice to everyone who switches, because this exactly the advice p3 gave to me when I first got my Mac Mini (February 2015, so, almost exactly 2 years now!). Macs are awesome machines,...
  15. Yeah, as everyone else has said, if you have a...

    Yeah, as everyone else has said, if you have a Mac with the proper specs and OS version, you can just use Airdrop between your iPhone and your Mac, or connect with iTunes and transfer things that way...

    Yeah, that is what I wanted to avoid. In this case, very simple "fix", though I don't know why it worked.
  17. Hmm...thought that was visible (I have specs...

    Hmm...thought that was visible (I have specs under my user info on the left panel). Anyway, everything is latest possible. Mac is running Sierra latest, iPad Air is running latest 10, same for...
  18. "Cannot Verify Server Identity" - could "Continue" on Mac and iPad but not iPhone 7

    As it says, got this error yesterday from one of the university email address where I work. On both my Mac and iPad, when this happened in Mail, it gave this message with a "Cancel" or "Continue"...
  19. And now did!

    And now did!

    Not a bad idea. Will.
  21. Quite! Like, sometimes, she just wants to buy...

    Quite! Like, sometimes, she just wants to buy something on her own. But still wants to be able to share apps and the like. Oddly constricting on payment options. I figured Apple would be just happen...
  22. [Apple Family Sharing] Any way to be more flexible on payment?

    What I mean is, my whole family (wife, me, daughter) are part of the family sharing on Apple. Let's say my daughter, in a fit of independence, wants to pay for a app purchase on her own bank card,...

    Yeah, that I know, and do already. I think. I mean, I open files from iCloud on my Mac, makes changes to them, and those files save in iCloud.


    What I was wondering about, is has anyone...
