My new Macbook Pro: Moving to a new computer
I bought a new Macbook Pro last week to replace the one I had. It was having some funky issues and I DO NOT play when it comes to my computer having issues. I will allow a tad bit of troubleshooting but if that doesn’t solve the issue completely, I am buying a new one. I do not ever reformat the one I have … I buy a new one, get completely up and running, and then format and sell the old one, or pass is to someone else in the company that is due for a refresh.
I have learned the hard way that when you format the computer you are using you are just asking for trouble. I have had issues that kept me down for a couple days, I have lost data because I didn’t remember everything I needed to move over, etc. Then you are without a computer “until”. Nope. I buy the new one, start getting things working on it as I have time, and when I am completely done, I give myself several days or a week to make sure I don’t realize something I am missing from the old one before I wipe it.
During this switch over it took me two days to realize I didn’t move my email signatures over from the old Outlook to the new one. You would think that using Office365 would cause those to move automatically, but alas, the work is mine. I have 11 email accounts each with their own signature. Fortunately my old machine isn’t wiped yet. 😉
My last Macbook Pro was the 13″ and I really loved it. Small, powerful, and super portable. This time, I was on the fence but at the suggestion of my IT guy I went for the 16″. It is more powerful than the new 13″ and of course has a bigger screen. I was nervous when it was on the way – I really didn’t know if I would like the bigger screen / bigger form factor. I was a little shocked when I opened the screen but in just a short while I was thinking “OMG – this is amazing”. It removes any desire I might have had for using a monitor, and it fits in my same laptop bag so the only thing that changed was the weight. And I am not joking – I had a book that stayed in my bag that I never read. I removed it and now the bag is back to what I am used to.
I didn’t intend to do a 16″ Macbook Pro product review in this email but it sorta feels like I did – ha!
Annnnyway, this weekend I will prob polish up a few settings and make sure I have everything I need from the old one before I format it. If you’re in the market for a one year old 13″ Macbook Pro that’s worth roughly $1300 let me know. 😉
From Joe, our friendly Safety Supplies Product Marketer:
CLOROX! Did I get your attention with that? Well, two new variations of Clorox Disinfecting Spray have been added to the site in limited quantity. We have both a powerful disinfectant cleaner with bleach AND an amazing smelling Scentiva Multi-Surface Cleaner. Seriously, when these got to the office, I debated keeping one on my desk as an air freshener, it’s that good!
With wipes becoming one of the harder products to find, it’s the perfect time to stock up. By this, I don’t mean hoarding 500 canisters in your garage either. We have wipes that are perfect for customers who go through more wipes than your average everyday person. Two products we offer that are perfect for this are our 900-Count 2XL Wipes (FDA Approved) as well as a Clorox option which contains 700 wipes. All you need is a small bucket and you’re all set! No more running around trying to find more wipes when you run out!
A Prayer Request:
I have a prayer request for you … I have a dear friend who is 65 and just found out he has cancer of the duodenum (the first part of the small intestine immediately beyond the stomach). He has an AMAZING attitude about it, trusts the Lord, and has great doctors. If you think of my friend Mike, would you ask the Lord for his healing, comfort, and for the Lord’s will to be done in and through his life as he navigates this?
I hope you are enjoying these emails. If you are, I appreciate it when you let me know! If not, or if you have ideas for how to improve, by all means please let me know! Sometimes I “can’t see the forest for the trees”.
As always, please let me know how I can be of service to you. If you need assistance with something, advice, or even if you just need someone to pray for you, I am here and listening.
Craig Haynie – CEO

- Florida will close all of its state-run coronavirus testing sites over the weekend as a tropical storm approaches, highlighting how hurricane season might make it harder for some hot spots to respond to the pandemic.
- Medical officials in Britain announced Thursday that the isolation period required for those with symptoms of the coronavirus would be extended from one week to 10 days.

- Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan (R) on Wednesday expanded the state’s mandate for face coverings, requiring residents older than 5 to wear masks while indoors in public spaces and outdoors when social distancing is not possible.
