Hey all -

I yet again have two questions for you all. Here they go:

1) Is it possible to check some where if your computer restarts itself? Only reason I ask, the last several times that I have logged onto my computer, I see the wifi screen on asking me to choose a connection. It doesn't happen every time but at least one time a day.

2) I am going to be switching the external hard drive that my time machine is on, and I want to keep that information but just move it to a smaller external drive. Is there a way to do so safely?

Thanks again in advance,
Hwilensky

This tip might get the job done. Mac 301: Time Machine backups after your Mac's brain surgery | TUAW - The Unofficial Apple Weblog. can't help much with question one.

Don't blame me if following this advice causes loss of data, a rip in space time allowing dinosaurs to roam free, or your significant other to leave.
