I went for a trip to the nearest
city today... Everywhere I looked I could see
I had to travel over a very tall, long, single-laned
bridge on the main state-highway. It normally
towers a good 20M above the water...
Today, great giant, dirty brown, standing-waves
were leaning over the sides of the bridge! It
was an awesome sight... not to mention, seriously
I am back home now... therefore I must have
crossed it twice.
And the bridge is still standing.

After running Nortons Utilities and AntiVirus..
I found over 400 seriously damage files!
Other than one of the System files, almost all
are less than important, or well backed up,
to my relief. These files all appeared to have
gone faulty during the last crash. HD seems
Three minor PC virus files were also found.
(A couple of Word files and a RTF)
I am gradually going through and replacing or
deleting all the damaged files.
I have also uploaded my first

The ibook died on thursday...
=( here is the story:
I was running OS 9.0.4 with multiple Users.
On thursday I tried compressing a very large
file with Stuffit Deluxe 5.5, and for some reason,
it crashed. The crash apparently corrupted the
stuffit Magic Menu file.. which then wouldn't
allow the "main user" of the ibook
to log-on. Since none of the other users had
access rights to the extensions or control panels...
it became rather difficult to fix the problem.
However after booting up off a CD.. I managed
to remove and track down the guilty party (corrupted
All seemed well... until on Friday, after trying
to use the contextual menus (ctrl-click) on
a desktop file. I had another major crash! ...
This time, on boot up... I was greeted with
a nice smiley face. =) But it never went away!
=( this did not look so good. After Zapping
the Pram (child included), attempting to boot
off a number of unbootable CD's, stressing a
lot, I eventually found a reliable, bootable
CD. Happy happy joy joy!...
I then clean installed OS 8.6 (the original
CD that came with the ibook).
On reboot, this then gave me a nice clean boring
orange desktop, that felt very unfamiliar. It
was going.... but I wanted my ibook back.
After cleaning out enough space to allow another
clean install of OS 9, (it was very full), I
then installed the OS 9, followed by the OS
9.0.4 upgrade, and then freshly installed Stuffit
Deluxe 5.5 to replace the previously damaged
version. Then I replaced the original Extension
folder, Control panel folder, Preferences folders,
and all other important folders from the old
My friendly ibook was back!=)
All seems happy...ish. However I have noticed
that the Appearance Control Panel seems to be
struggling to recognise some desktop pictures
(for an as yet unknown reason) and the Contextual
menu function (ctrl-click) is seriously unhappy.
Control-Click seems to force quit what ever
Application I am in.
hmmmm. More doctoring is needed.
