IPhoto is now asking which library to open.

Trying to open iPhoto. Out of the blue, it asks which library do I want to open. Library? Never dealt with a "library." Haven't downloaded anything, and no updates installed lately.

Could be. It was so cold that the remote for the TV wouldn't work, and also the TV would randomly shut off.

Furnace failure was the cause for the extreme conditions.

High-speed fan comes on when too cold?

Long story cut short: I used my iMac in ambient 26F. When it started, the fan went to high speed mode (crazy...even when it's 85-90 here and it runs all day, the high speed fan has never come on). ...

Those RAM tests didn't show issues with my situation either, which is why my problems lasted 2 years leaving me to believe the RAM was good.

That worked, but just for that one.

Why isn't everything in Finder? I'm looking at the d/l dates and the pics aren't in Finder. Or Downloads, unless Bluetooth isn't considered a download. ...

Where are my pics after a BT transfer?

I transfer pics from my non-Apple smartphone via Bluetooth, but can't find where they end up. I'd like to believe they'd at least be in Downloads, but no. Not in Preview or iPhoto, either.

The switch is integral with the body, so it looks like the case has to be replaced. (Is a replacement case even available?) I researched this a bit because my switch is flaking out too ('12 iMac)....

CNET is not a legitimate, or safe, site for downloads? I've seen you mention this at least twice and I am curious why you believe so.

Face recognition can be unreliable. I have a boulder, pond, cluster of leaves, clouds and so forth pegged as "faces". I wish I could post them here, but they seem locked in to iPhoto.

I have 2 LG phones, one dumb and one smart neither of which are recognizable to the iMac using USB data cable. With the smartphone, Bluetooth saves the day. Sure would be nice to know why not.

Batteries today were at 100%, then 17. I pulled them out 3X and took readings 92, 86 and 84 within a span of 2 mins. It's settled at 84. No real purpose to this post, just for entertainment.

Is there room to cram in a SSD in there somewhere without removing the HDD? Looks to me every possible square mm is being used.
