The things that needed to be fixed, appear to be fixed.
I was one screw short of a complete set, but I did have both a small Phillips bit and a #6 Torx bit in my toolkit, which came very much in handy.
SSDs are so much faster than 2013-vintage HDDs.
The unexpected software change was an upgrade from Office 2011 for Mac, which went end of life in 2017. We are now on Office 365 Home, an upgrade from Office 365 Personal that I already had. The Microsoft tax is hard to escape.
Copying all the data off of an elderly HDD onto a shiny new SSD. Hoping it all goes without incident; in a pinch, there is a Time Machine backup that would also work to restore from.
I'm seeing 20 MB/sec sustained across a USB-to-SATA adapter for the SSD. That seems slow but hey this only has to work once.
Car towed to shop. Tow driver quite genial. Shop was open, they were doing computer work on a weekend. Check in again first thing Monday. #bancars
Engine turns over but car doesn't start. Oil ok. Helpful person suggested ignition coil or crank sensor. Waiting for tow. #bancars
Driving the new car over to see why the old car is not working. #bancars
This is first-level unreasonable behavior by a city council:
"It shows one resident (at the 3:12 mark) being told he must stop speaking because he is expressing "political advocacy," which the city attorney then declares is banned by a contract with the cable-television system that broadcasts city meetings. Minutes later, when another resident insists on speaking about the bond, Mayor Patty Bordman abruptly gavels the meeting over, gets up and walks out."
Laptop battery update:
For reasons I can't explain, the battery is actually charging now, after I went through a complete discharge cycle.
I hauled out the MacBook Pro that had died, just to convince myself that I could use it in a pinch. It would be very hard to go back now, between the dodgy keyboard and the lack of a touch screen and the glitchy screen..
