My 6 1/2 year old Mac is struggling for survival. Though I am ready for a new computer, my friend Darren, who works with Mac's and builds them, plans to come over on Monday and fix it. Darren writes: "It just needs a power management cycling and OS Lion." I archived everything for now, just in case, and yes I have an external hard drive with everything backed up. Crystalinks is backed up at the server end also. A girl can't be too careful.
