    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!

    LOL. I can remember back when I was on a government job in Florida our paychecks and travel allowances would be sent to us by mail. I missed getting one of my bi-weekly checks and put a claim in for a replacement. Six weeks later I received a replacement for the missing check and 3 months later when I was back home the original missing check arrived!

    (And yes, I returned it to our paymaster in DC)

    I got the same Apple mail. Glad I'm not the only one behind!

    Well Craig Nederland must be as far away as Australia.

    Love these stories of 'snail' mail showing up decades later - one such story of the card shown below - mailed from a soldier in WW I (1916) to his sister - delivered in 2010, 94 years later! WOW - Story HERE - Dave

    Nice one Dave. "Royal Mail" never fails to deliver even if it's 94 years late!
