    Ahh Dave you are too good. Jack in hos dotage, he is a year younger than me, has become an environmentalist big time.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    Well, a good guess, me thinks! BTW, wife & I watch few films together (just different likes & tastes), but one is Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil which is based on a true murder story that occurred in Savannah, Georgia, a city we've been visiting for 40 years or so (just a 5-hr drive) - love the town and birthplace of a favorite lyricist of ours, i.e. Johnny Mercer - BUT, Jack Thompson played the lawyer, Sonny Seiler - both Thompson & Kevin Spacey had great 'southern' accents - Aussie actors are excellent w/ American accents (another example is Hugh Jackman in the stage production of Oklahoma where he is Curly, the Okie cowboy).

    lol if you saw Jack today Dave you would not recognise him. His hard, hard life and two lady friends have taken a huge toll on him but he would not change anything. For me his best role was as the lawyer in Breaker Morant.

    Must get a pic and post it.

    p.s. Since the OP has not replied to the thread (1 post)...maybe we need to change the name of the thread to (Miscellaneous)...and move it to Schweb's Lounge.

    No offense guys but what does this off topic stuff have to do with my MacBook Pro possibly having water damage? I wish I could take it apart and take a picture of the insides but I'm afraid to as I'm not sure what I would be looking for or how to fix anything.

    Hi Julie:

    We thought you had abandoned this thread. Sorry about the off topic chatter. Anyway, you probably need to take your MacBook Pro to an Apple Store or an authorized Apple repair service and have them take it apart and see what damage has been done. It's very likely that some water seeped down onto the logic board beneath the keyboard and that may have shorted something out. Water damage is very unpredictable and can be expensive to repair depending on what needs to be replaced. Good luck with the repairs and hopefully it will not be expensive.

    Hi Julie - sorry about going 'off topic' - a lot of us, including me, are older guys that are easily swayed to other topics -

    First, let us know what has happened in the last few days since you posted initially, i.e. what have you done in the meantime? Second, you were given the 'official thread' on this subject several times, so I hope that you took a look - the results are usually disappointing.

    Bottom line is that you likely have permanently damaged your computer and the correction will be likely expensive. If your computer is still not working normally, then a diagnostic assessment would be needed, preferably by an Apple Store or an authorized Apple service - you'll need an evaluation - not much that you can do personally to correct the current potential damage - Dave

    ADDENDUM: Well, Chscag beat me to the draw by a minute - BUT, the advice is the same -

    Hi Harry - since a number of us have responded to Julie, I hope that this post will be acceptable - I have Breaker Morant (1980) in my DVD-R collection (i.e. burned from the TCM channel - public domain) - I'm sure that Jack looked a lot better 37 years ago -

    Criterion has released the film on BD w/ their usual superb restoration (own a lot of their products) and extras (below the film w/ Jack shown in a scene & a description from the Criterion website of the BD contents) - I enjoy that film but have debated on the extra cost of the BD? Dave
