not very long. It has been a long, long time since I did that. Most likely that one pixel will come bad from the dead.

hopefully it will! what kind of freeware stuff do you run that you'd consider pretty useful / needed?

You should repair the permissions regualary...its in Applications->Utilities->Disk Utility
I usually try to do it at least once after I install something or monthly whatever the case may be.
Congrats on the first Mac.

First congratz on the Mac!! also every day/week/month cron task (unless you have Mac janitor) Finder>Applicatons>Utilities>Terminal. switch to root (superuser) type sudo sh /etc/daily (prompted for password) and of course each week repeat making daily weekly instead and same /monthly every month. You can make an Applescript to do this - but I think manually is just as easy. So far, I have not found any needed freeware, but I'm sure theres some out there > you may wanna have a look at Bob "Dr. Mac" LeVitus's book Dr Mac. It's awesome!

goto versiontracker.com and download cocktail, its a prog that will do all of this in one place.

Yeah, I'm sure that one will work. I just received a 2Meg Applescript from my bro that does it also with a one button app. But I need his permission to send it to anyone, and I don't plan on using it cause I'm so used to doing it manually.
