Day 39-GIS

June 22, 2018

In preparation for my course, I am studying. Enrolled in online courses so I won’t look too much of a fool when I go to class week after next. That I am old and have white hair will make me stand out. I don’t want my brains to show me up as well. So some oiling and rust removal is what was done today.

GIS-geographic information system is one of the essential techniques for a public health person these days, or so the experts say. I am trying to learn and do assignments in this online course. I used my brains today. Trying to figure out how to recover my saved unsaved word documents from my computer. I was working on MS Word and the rainbow colored wheel keeps rotating when I try to save my document. Finally it crashed and I quit Word. I thought like in a PC, my Mac would have autosaved my document. It did not.  6 hours later, I was still trying to figure out where in the realms of Word, my document was hidden. Napped for about an hour, by when husband returned from his trip to homeland. We had lunch together. Post lunch, I tried again and found out that in Finder, I could go to a temporary folder and get my last saved document, which was almost the last one I worked on before Word crashed on me this morning.

So relieved. I completed my assignment and submitted it. I am working on my next one now. 5 assignments to complete before June 30.

In Mac, it is good to have Auto Save on( apparently) and Auto Save gets “on”, only when the document is saved on One Drive( apparently). So I downloaded One Drive from App store and got the autosaved document above saved there. The Autosave button automatically turned to on after this.
