Sometimes You Forget

.. and it is good to be reminded …


… how good Clean My Mac is. Speed Up EMail it says .. and tucked away to the side we see “Various mailbox issues”.

I had one. Smart Folders highlighting messages as unread – when in fact there weren’t even messages in the folder – read OR unread. I have had this issue before – and it has ended up with stuff like deleting ‘plists’ – and no – you don’t want to be doing that lightly – but in the end it worked. But it is time-consuming and you can accidentally destroy stuff and cause yourself problems.

Today I opened up CleanMyMac. I ran the speed up mail process, and less than a minute later all the ghosts had gone.

There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer;
No disease that enough love will not heal;
No door that enough love will not open;
No gulf that enough love will not bridge;
No wall that enough love will not throw down;
No sin that enough love will not redeem . . .

It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble, how hopeless the outlook, how muddled the tangle, how great the mistake–a sufficient realisation of love will dissolve it all. . . if only you could love enough, you would be the happiest and most powerful being in the world.

Today, I have received 7 spam texts and 5 spam phone calls … and we still are only half way through the day.

What’s up with that?
