Let's see one spuger (spelling?) or a bunch of guitar picks?  Awesome tool usage!  I sure hope I can get my damn data off this drive.  I sure wish Macs had an eSata connector....  :-(

Surprise.  Deleted from Apple Support Forum for being "off topic".  Well, yeah, it was...

"Photos.  Shockingly awful.  Absolutely not useful.  Why would anybody who has touched iPhoto or Aperture ever ever ever consider it?  Really peeved at Apple.  Waste of an afternoon converting.  Hurray for this conversation.  I fortunately had iPhoto 9.6.1 on another mac and was able to copy it over and can get my wife back on iPhoto. 

If you can't trust Apple to give you a complete consumer solution anymore (buy the computer and you're good to go), then one of the KEY benefits of Apple over Windows has been flushed out with the bathwater...  When they're charging money for iCloud for anything over 5 Gigabytes when their phones have 64 Gigabytes, how can they be looking out for the consumer?

Dangit, am I going to have to install Linux on all my Macs?

Seriously...   Losing faith in something I've been relying on for decades."

I fortunately had iPhoto 9.6.1 (Necessary to use iPhoto on Yosemite) on another mac and was able to copy it over and can get my wife back on iPhoto and delete these awful Photos libraries..

Amazing work.  You've amazed me with the amount of work it takes.  I think I'll be calling in my Sprint Total Equipment Protection plan for this one instead of buying the hundreds of dollars worth of tools, and letting somebody else have a "crack" at my screen.  :-)

Fun stuff dude!  Lesson learned.  Don't buy a hose if you can clean it out.  Don't open the pump unless you know what you're doing.

So, low power mode on the phone. Kind of useless? It takes twice as much screen time to do anything waiting for the phone right?
