I did not have a good combination of options last night. I am not a tech-noobie, but boy did I do a noob justice last night. The picture on the left above is just before a moment where I was laughing my ass off. (I can say ass right?)Anyways… Yes, I did have to go and replay it a few times. It was good for giggles. 😀

One of those can I do this moments followed after that.

Can I get this converted to YouTube?

Wait do I even have the right software….

Followed by a search of can I even find the footage? (Footage is there. Just have a glitch in the original recording. But the audio….)

So back to my quest for the search, yes the software is there, yes the Iphone works… wait Iphone needs to update. Update started at 10:02 pm. The little blue bar is not moving… Still not moving after I patiently read part of a book.

Still hasn’t moved. A clue?

At midnight I decided to go to sleep update was not done. Up at 2:30 the OCD in me could not handle the fact that the weather made the WIFI wonky and the update was NOT done. Aaaaaaahhhhh!!

Click on Apple exit, will stop the update. Must restore phone. Restore phone? Huh??  Okay restoration of phone. Requires a computer restart (by then I had all the USB connections screwed up between the assorted portable hardware.)

And restarting the computer gets me this little square blue box.  WTF? Okay, the USB ports got all screwed up. Restart the computer, again. By now I am beating my head against the pillows, the house is cold and dark and I really cannot make a lot of noise.

Its three o’clock in the morning, a sane person would have went to sleep. But the phone is my alarm clock, I am addicted to IG and I have to, have to, have to have it available on Halloween. Did I mention I have to?

Computer and Apple do not even recognize the fact that the Iphone exists. Iphone doesn’t even recognize itself.  I’z a litte perturbed. Now this is running the fact that I got maybe 3 hours sleep the night before? Yah, not impressed.  So, okay I get the phone restarted and figured out. I now need the password to the household WIFI.

I live in a house of people where nothing is ever put back where it belongs. For example:

The pamphlet from the cable company containing the passcode is not in the little red box or the bag of cable stuff. Both logical places to find it.

The Motrin for my niece, who has since woken up with a fever, is not in the medicine cabinet, on the rec-room table or in the kitchen.

My keys are not on the hook.

At this point, priorities get rearranged and I run to the 7-Eleven in my minion jammie bottoms and grab Motrin, 2 Dr. Peppers and a few of those little silver dollar beef jerkies. I felt better after those.

Okay everything delivered. A little bit of food and some caffeine. Somewhere in the mess of electronics I own there is the password. Quick search through the computer – no go. Kindle, Ipad, well the Iphone is out. It’s what wanted the password in the first place.

Back to the computer:

Network and Sharing Center – click

Wireless Network Connection Center – click (I’m starting to feel smarter)

Wireless properties !! (Small celebration)

Securities. –click At this time I have one of those palm to forehead moments. I mean why didn’t I go here before? I am really not this tech-illiterate. Has to be the lack of sleep.

Okay, passcode entered _ Restoration will take 12 minutes.

20 minutes later (remember the phone said 12? And the internet has been wonky?) the phone is up and restoring back to the other night and it is now a half hour wait for all of the apps to reload. I might just have too many apps.

By this time it’s 5 in the morning. There is no reason to go to bed as I have to get up at 5 to get ready to go to work.

I am now at point A, again. I have the weekend, I think, to get the vid figured out. Maybe…

I’d would say my Halloween started out with a little bit of a trick. And I think I’ll wait to upload the software upgrade for another day.

However the greatest thing? The computer and the Iphone now both recognize that it is there.

Coffee is now a requirement to function. I hope everyone has a great Halloween (if you celebrate) and if you don’t, Have an awesome Friday!
