We’ll see if it can finish the Little Gift of Measure ruler (or whatever it’s called and I’m afraid to go back and look.)
It’s the first time it proceeded normally, the ready to go screen popped up, and I got to press the button to go.
Maybe there was just a cloud-side software issue?
Maybe the universe just wanted me to suffer some first?
Maybe my machine is partially broken and just going to randomly work unless replaced?
Dunno. But it’s making noise and smoke right now, so I’m happy. So long as it doesn’t stop and misbehave again.
