Apple's servers must be swamped. I'm getting time out errors via SU. OK. Got a connection - sloooooow (as in dialup slow). I might abandon this and wait until tomorrow. SU is saying 4 hours to dl this. Ooops! Just timed out again. I'll try tomorrow AM.

Nah! Bleeding edge for me! In a month or two, we'll have Snow Leopard anyway.

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 02:54 PM

Downloaded the combo, installed, clicked "Restart." I've been watching the blue screen with the spinning gear for about ten minutes. The gear appears for a few seconds and then disappears for a few seconds and reappears for a few seconds. Seems to be in a loop. Should I wait it out or go for a hard shutdown and restart?

Downloaded the 730MB Combo Update - took about 2 minutes. Haven't installed yet. Waiting to read about all the "issues" first. I also downloaded the Safari 4 beta update.

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 03:14 PM

I'm a FF user, so no Safari beta for me. I went for the hard shutdown/restart. Resulted in the double restart and all is well.

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 03:26 PM

Have I ever whined? I take my lumps and deal with them. Of course, I have another bootable volume and a current TM backup. There is always a way out for me. wink

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 03:33 PM

There is now an update to Safari (3.2.3). Doesn't show in SU, though. Oh, included with 10.5.7 apparently.

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 04:16 PM

I'll do my wife's mini tomorrow. That way, she won't freak because I "changed something." It has been up 68 days without freeze or crash.

10.5.7 loaded up and seems to work just fine. MacBozo's hat seems more Panama yellow than before and I am picking up four neighborhood wireless networks instead of just one extra.

I'd say it's the redesign of the tinfoil hat.

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 04:53 PM

Not at all. If she knows I've updated/upgraded something, she forgets everything she knows for some reason. Must be from the Windows upgrades at her work. laugh

Re: Apple releases 10.5.7 - 05/12/09 05:21 PM

Okay, so you'll do it while she's away.

I see. Smart Chicken.

No, I think it is the rhinestone studded reading glasses I'm wearing which are beefing the signal up.

Of course, how silly of me. With the new grants anything is possible.

On the serious side good to hear about them BTW. The grants, not the glasses you freak.

A 107 page one I wrote and four more that I am consulting or letters of support on. The dice get rolled this summer but the Obama stimulus has been stimulating to say the least. Reviewing 36 grants right now. But in the long run I get more rhinestones.

Be sure to wear those rhinestones with a gold lamé uniform. Killer grant props.
