Try harder. But don't feel put out. The Mac never crashes, eh. I have used them for decades and prefer the Mac. But I crashed it twice weekend before last. Trying to load a neuroscience imaging software with Matlab Run Time. Took the machine to Apple. Nice guy, Henry. Couldn't diagnose the problem. Did a clean install. Migrated to OS X10.10. Don't like it. I am still having problems with the machine. But I love the machine. I hate using my DOS machine. Beside the neuroscience software I am using is open software and very UNIX oriented which suits the command line just fine. Much of the software is not ready for .10 but worked great on .9. Well, that is until the crashes. Of the crash, well the lesson for me is, if you have a crash, debug and don't go on to the next task until you have solved it. Work with Apple with the crash report in front of you.
You know, in the Oscar Wilde play, the Importance of Being Earnest he tells Lady Bracknell that he has lost both parents. "To have lost one parent can be viewed as a misfortune. But to have lost two parents smacks of carelessness." Yeah, two crashes. Shame on me.
Well, we all learn, don't we?
Great to have this forum, though. Yippee! Snoop clicking his heels in glee.
