Last week my hard drive crashed!!
(everyone now needs to back up their info before reading on....do it now, before it is too late!!!)
I lost everything - I see it as a clensing experience!
I had several gift certificate #'s saved in emails from Minimed. These were from various stages from my online pump challenge accont and one from an online survey. Value $170 at Minimed......GONE......or so I thought! I emailed Minimed Canada and explained what happened - gave my pump account #.....waited a week, and VOILA, they were able to find all of my money! I had been saving that money for sensors, so I am VERY HAPPY!
(again I remind, back up your data! I lost everything!)
The big benefit of my new hard drive, it is a clean and fresh start....and I found out an easier way to run Windows XP on my MACbook. I had been running Windows before through bootcamp, which means I had to reboot my MAC to run windows. A pain in the butt resulting in my once a month MAX upload to carelink (honestly, probably once every two months).
I knew about parallels, but did not want to put the money forward to do this.....I have a trial version of the software I need and I am SOLD! Now I have Windows running in a parallel window on my MAC - which means Windows is running like any other program. I can have Windows running on my mac all the time - which means carelink without having to shut down all my programs and reboot! I get the best of both worlds. The ease of a MAC, and the ability to use WIndows software applications.....
Good has come from my computer crash!
Happy Fathers day to all the Dads out there!
