Kill The Head And The Body Will Die

We've been shut down for a couple of weeks because of a massive denial-of-service attack on our servers. By which we mean we attached our Apple iPad to an Apple USB connector and plugged it into our Apple MacBook (which also doubles as the Burro Hall mainframe), at which point the MacBook died an instant, presumably painless death, because Apple products are engineered to crap out in less time than Steve Jobs's pancreas. This happened while we were at the annual Burro Hall investors' conference in Playa del Carmen. Apparently, "all-inclusive" does not include on-site MacBook repair. 

So here's a big BH shout-out to QRO's one and only authorized Mac service center: Multitask Corp. The fact that they call their emergency service desk the "smart bar," rather than the "genius bar" made us lower our expectations in the usual Mexican way, but they fixed it in the most ingenious way possible: by plugging it in and turning it on. Worked just perfectly. They even held onto it for a day and ran every conceivable diagnostic test, only to conclude there was nothing wrong with it.

In other words, Burro Hall has been on psychosomatic sick leave for the past two weeks. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Wow, I will say some juju before plugging in for the next "synch."

P.S. Does this mean we can see some more pix of Señor Pug?

In my previous life as an IT Administrator, you have no idea how many times I fixed things by just plugging it in and turning it on. IT people have magic fingers.

I call BS. We all really know that Linton Robinson hacked your Mac.
