Apple’s release of Mac OS X 10.4.7 imminent (with release notes) – June 24, 2006


  1. I came in the office yesterday after a one week vacation, and my machine will not start up. All I get is gray screen. No Apple logo. No spinner. Anyone got a fix for that? ‘Cause I can’t download a damn thing at this point.

    DiskWarrior. No Joy.
    TechTools. No Joy.


  2. Downloaded the 64MB combo updater – 7 minutes
    Installed the update – 37 seconds
    The first reboot – 2.5 mins

    That was painless.

    Now… to test the changes in Safari, if any I can see.
