Time to time, things are going complex and it's the time we learn the most in short periods. I learned for my own lots when i discovered 3 years ago that i needed to solve a big problem with my eyes. Else, i would't bee able to work anymore… The eyes problem went solved (operation by the best french specialist of amblyopia) and i learned lots about what we are able to build and solve when things are going a little to much difficult. Because them, i found the way to solve a vision problem witch affected all my life and the regard i was posing on the world in between my fourth and fifty-two birthdays…

I'm sure you will be OK soon and, even, happy and rich from what the current events are giving you to react to and build to go over this special moment in your time. In deciding to learn to play the harmonica, you acts and say : spirituality and art, sensibility and creativity is the ground we need to start from, always and always, to never forget that we stay gift able, for others and, even, for ourself when needed witch is perhaps the more difficult we have to deal with...

About HD crashs, in case of you would have to try to re-backup it in read mode, Disk Warrior is incredibly performant in such case : he locks the crashed drive in read mode only and backup it to the rescue one with great success in most cases, even when the crashed drive makes sad noise while the backup.

If needed, you will find it at :

About working tasks, new customers are searching for trustable B2B mobile apps solutions architect/sdevelopers and you are one of the ones they are searching for. Meet them !

Friendly yours,

> Then "due to economic conditions" I lost my biggest long term client of 18 years. Major loss of income for sure.

Even simple tasks like reading 300+ emails or paying bills online is a major pain in the *ss! I'm not even talking about actual programming. Just doing mock ups and billing and trying just to keep my business afloat. 
> Netflix is awesome. And web browsing isn't too bad but anything that involves multi tasking or programming is just way too difficult. 
> So, I'm still alive but i think I'm going a bit crazy. I just decided to take up learning how to play the Harmonica and watching all 600 Dave Cantebury YouTube videos (From Dual Survival). I think I'd know better how to survive in a wilderness environment better than in the current economic environment. Just saying!
