Mac drive failure

So it happened just the other day. Something corrupted my hard drive on my mac and being I am on the 5th new OS since Mountain Lion, it wouldn't allow me the use of the restore tools to fix the drive as the hard drive needed to be reformatted to uncorrupt the boot partition. I fought with it a lot, and gave up. So after buying me a surface, and still hating Microsoft, today I did some more research to find other ways to get my hard drive working again. Like its a SSD so its not likely that the drive itself failed. I finally found something useful, use the online recovery option. I hadn't heard about it before, I new about the start up using command R to get into the recovery partition on the hard drive, but the recovery partition was gone. so I found I could do a Option Command R to go to Apple online recovery server from my mac where I was able to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the base operating system (Mountain Lion) from there. which it is in process of doing now.
Time will tell if it worked, but it just rebooted so here goes nothing.

SAP Fiori

Seems like SAP is getting into the 21st century with their new SAP Fiori. It is a user experience that takes you away from the old green screen mentality into a modern web based user friendly experience. I am working through their http://opensap.com Corse in learning this technology. I am running too far behind to get the completion certificate but will finish it anyway. Hmm I wonder if I can develope a Fiori app to build smart forms with 🤓

Stop robocalls

There was a link in my consumers report where we can sign a petition of theirs that will help them stop robocalls. The web address is endrobocalls.org.
This should redirect you to here: https://consumersunion.org/end-robocalls/
If it doesn't don't click anything else as robocalls.org is not it, you need endrobocall.org.
