As Precautionary Measure

As precautionary measure... I backed up all software resident on fifteen inch Macbook Pro computer yesterday December first two thousand twenty two courtesy two terabyte Seagate external drive. Hardware not necessarily superfluous when associating, assessing, and assaying true value to equipment constituting kit and caboodle - paraphernalia such as router, screen, keyboard, et cetera encompassing accessing the Internet. Yours truly recognized the wisdom to undertake aforementioned proactive self motivated directive regarding protecting data (applications, documents, files, et cetera) despite purchasing refurbished said laptop two plus weeks ago in the unforeseen event some unexpected malfunction renders impossible mission to access precious literary endeavors. Though I subscribe to icloud storage no idea in the webbed wide world where such information of mine stored, hence to stave off unforeseen technological catastrophe, (where ghost in the machine possess potential to deliver a haunting nightmare), thus I resort to a multitude of intelligent steps minimizing distress if crisis occurs. Each travail affecting mein kampf (not just those linkedin to technological trappings) offer an object lesson and/or an opportunity to test coping skills of one modest male. As a for instance, an exercise (testing patience of Steve Job's ghost) occurred prior to purchasing computer at hand acquiring MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), from Paul Reader part business owner at Mac Mojo. He profusely apologized, when initial acquisition (prior to the one witnessing myself typing at these words) failed to function after I plunked down a tidy sum defying his acute natural mechanical dogged bent. Similar to proactive actions taken to buffer oneself against technologically sophisticated contrivance(s) exhibiting er... failure to boot (analogous to being assertively prepared for electronic fiasco), I consider challenges of marriage analogous to summon forth essential roll with the punches adaptation. Offtimes, the missus, (whether deliberately or unwittingly) affects me with serious thoughts, whereby I envy the life of Norwegian bachelor in general or wishing to splurge upon potential persons who profess and attest genetically endowed as she i.e. the fairer able, eager, ready and willing to surrender herself in situ way shun, and evanescence of delicto flagrante in particular despite anonymous woman, (perhaps a Goo Goo doll) in question being a felon.
