• Using time machine on a new mac?

    I've got a 2011 Imac that was my main mac for ages until I got my recent Macbook Pro Retina. I got an external hard drive recently and backed up my entire system through time machine (which came to a round 500GB of data).

    I've got a 2011 Imac that was my main mac for ages until I got my recent Macbook Pro Retina. I got an external hard drive recently and backed up my entire system through time machine (which came to a round 500GB of data). I was wanting to sell the Imac now since I'm not using it due to the speed of the Retina, but the retina only has a 250GB hard drive. Is there any way I could just run the Time Machine backup on the macbook straight off the hard drive? I understand this would this would leave the macbook a little less portable since the hard drive will always need to be attached to it, but I really need the money from the Imac at the moment. So I guess what i'm asking is if this is even possible to do, or if time machine needs to be backed up fully onto the host computers hard drive for it to work?

    Hi guys, yahoo answers has always served me well and I thought I would post this here first before trawling through guitar forums for assistance. Please note, I'd rather have answers from intermediate-advanced players. I've been playing guitar since I was about 11 and i'm 18 now. When I was younger I used to practice for hours everyday and dedicated so much time and effort into becoming better at the instrument. That gradually declined as things progressed with school and such but I was still practicing none the less. Basically over the last year i've been stuck in a horrible rut that I just can't seem to get out of, I'm playing the same things over and over and over. I've tried learning new scales and licks, jamming to backing tracks, listening to and playing new styles of music, buying new gear and nothing's helped. It's got to the point now where as soon as I try to practice I pick the guitar up and immediately put it back down frustrated because each day I seem to be getting worse. It's an annoying vicious cycle that has me thinking about giving up because i'm that frustrated. I only have a couple of musical friends but none of them are even close to me skill wise and are often too busy or lazy to come over for a jam or learn some licks with me. Can anyone recommend any ways to get out of this situation? I really don't want to give up since I love music and the instrument so much. But this rut is beginning to make me fairly depressed.

    Basically at the age of 17 I'm applying for my first job ever as a stock assistant at aldi as something to do towards the end of my senior year of high school, and something to keep me occupied over summer before I go to university (so glamorous I know). The application has been fairly easy up until I hit this question... "Please describe the most challenging experience of your life to date. This could be physically or mentally demanding. (max. 100 words)". I honestly have no idea how to respond to this, when I searched the web for guidance everyone was saying that the company wants to know about a demanding situation in your life that resolved positively and left you with a skill that could benefit the company. Most people told me to refer to my previous jobs for inspiration, although i've never had a job before and nothing in my life has really happened that's significant in that way. So... does anyone have any idea how I should reply to this?

    For the past few weeks I've had a terrible pain in my right leg. It starts from my right buttock and travels down the entirety of my leg down to my ankle, although certain places hurt randomly throughout the day. At first it was merely a nuisance that I thought would go away, but it's progressively gotten worse to the point where I almost can't get out of the house. Earlier today I sneezed and that must've agrivated something, the pain was so bad that I almost passed out. So every time I'm about to sneeze now I'm pretty nervous about the pain. I went to the doctor about a week ago and he assured me it wasn't sciatica and that it was in fact a certain joint that I may have strained. I was perscribed some anti inflamitants that worked slightly for the first few days but now do nothing, the only thing I get relief with is large ibruprofen tablets. I'm a 17 year old male if that's any help. Anyone have an idea of what this is, what's caused it and how I can finally resolve this?

We live in Scotland at the moment so getting there is a bit of a pain, and my friend might not be able to afford it. Do we really need to go all the way to London to verify something like this or are we allowed to go regardless? Can someone just clear this up for me, and tell me if there's anywhere closer to home to get verified if my friend is right ?

    So basically i've been playing guitar for the past five years with no breaks in-between, since i was 11 years old. I always seemed to progress pretty fast and really enjoy guitar playing and it's become a massive part of my life. But over the last 2-3 months i've begun to get seriously frustrated with it. We all have those moments where we get frustrated at guitar and put it down for a day or two but this feels different. It feels like i'm getting worse all the time, everything i play seems really sloppy, i have absolutely no patience when i'm trying a lick or solo or something (when i was younger i would sit sometimes for hours until something i wanted was perfect) and i'm beginning to feel pretty depressed. I've tried having breaks and coming back to the guitar but i end up doing it too often and feel guilty about not playing it. Has anyone ever been in a rut this bad before? Does anyone know any ways to get over this? Guitar just feels like a huge part of my life now and im sad that i can't enjoy it as much as i used to.

I try not to bring the people with me down but it's pretty hard when you feel I'll constantly and you can't enjoy yourself. This issue has made me refrain from going on family holidays and holidays with friends so it has to stop. Does anyone know how to fix this? WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?
