Try not to pull on the cord to disconnect. That's the biggest cause of failures. Pull on the plug itself and not the cord. Even if the cord doesn't show any detachment, the thin wires inside can be...

vansmith, I guess we'll agree to disagree. Not all Canadians who entered the US services became Americans as that is not a requirement of the services here. And not all of them stayed here after...

Yep! I was in the service at the time and was getting intelligence briefings on what was going on. Military estimates gave NVA about 6 weeks to go before total collapse. We were totally stunned when...

You can set the default search engine in Safari/Preferences. It's on the General tab.

Are you using any download manager? Safari names partly downloaded files with a .part extension, and if the download is interrupted, you end up with a .part file that is pretty much useless.

I can't speak to Canada's involvement but the fact that it isn't brought up in school is only a reflection of the school system agenda, not the lack of interest at the time.

What do you mean "unable?" You mean the icon won't move? Or it moves but snaps back? Or you get an error message saying something? What happens when you try moving/right-clicking?
