Be a digital historian they said. It will be fun they said. You will learn the most up to date technological things they said.
No one warned me how many times I would want to throw my computer in a lake and become a hermit in a cabin in the woods with no wifi. It is a little disheartening to be this overwhelmed this early in the semester. I tired to follow Josh’s instructions but since I am a mac user, I wound up more confused than before. Even though FileZilla is available for Mac and PC, it kept crashing. As soon as I opened it, my computer would warn me it was a bad file and only let me trash it.
Reclaim suggested Cyberduck. I spent the past hour and a half trying to translate the FileZilla instructions to something I can use. I had to walk away.
I am currently waiting for Dreamweaver to update. Maybe once I have had a full night’s sleep and my blood isn’t boiling anymore I will have better luck.
I am open to suggestions from other Reclaim/Mac users.
