G'day all

I updated my 5-year old eMac yesterday to 10.5.7 - isn't that amazing in itself?

The upgrade went well with one reboot. No obvious differences but I assume there are lots of improvements under the hood. I'm looking forward to a new iMac very soon to take best advantage of the latest OS.

Tonight I noticed that Time Machine was no longer backing up to our wireless connected drive. Several swear words referring to the OS upgrade later I thought to venture into the spare bedroom and actually check the drive. All the connections looked OK and the appropriate lights were on but I pushed all the cables in firmly and hey presto all is well again.

Cheers
Steve
