Speed breaker – 2 ; Mac crashing

This week the speed breaker came in the form of not code, rather hardware.

Mac is trying to upgrade to Catalina – I said yes.

But before it completes I have to be mobile. Was sitting in bus and it asked me to complete upgrade, I said yes – but I guess without internet it can not complete upgrade. So far so good.

I rebooted Mac (I do it from time to time, when I want to context switch my work – this forces to close all open windows and freshly starts everything on new work, also machine won’t be slow. True in windows more but kept the hobbit of rebooting frequently)

After reboot all I got is circle-slash!

Took couple of hours to finally reinstall and get back to work.

Also trying to learn about gRPC – seems simple but carefully reading the dcoument as I am in no rush.
