    What do the log files on the iMac indicate ?
    Any backup messages in the logs ?

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.
    The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
