Oh I am not a happy man. Earlier today, I installed the latest update from Apple. I've not yet made the switch to Leopard, as I like to let things get a little settled before I take the plunge. But I'm *very* good about installing the auto-updates from Apple when my system alerts me.
Perhaps now, not so much.
The latest one caused my system to hang at the boot progress. Using The Lovely Wife's lappy, I checked the Apple forums, only to find that many others were reporting the same problem. Long story short -- the fix which was working for most wouldn't work for me because of disk space issues. And while I just did a backup on Saturday, I now find out that was only a data backup... that didn't include my programs.
So I'm a little screwed right now. Actually, I'm a lot screwed right now. But what the hell. Shit happens. Good time for me to make the switch to as many web-based apps as I can, I guess. Could be quiet from me for a while as I figure out passwords, important websites and such. Oh, and email. Think that's totally gone, too.
