    This Is It!
    I am so happy! I get a PB again! I love it! Theres one condition for it though: It has to be the cheapest PB and i have to do well in school. That will be easy. PB HERE I COME! Even though i like to think i am a mac user, i was wondering if there were any interesting terminal commands i might want to use. Thanks.

    Oh no! Here it comes being criticized for my terminal post! For crons, I use terminal. As your own user sudo sh /etc/daily and every week make daily weekly, and do monthly to. Top lists all processes running. Man is a manual list that explains commands, example, type man top. If an app can't be shut down from the GUI or foce quit menu, type top, find the app running, and use the kill (PID) where PID is the process ID. Well that's a start

    Yeah, type "Go fsck youself" to do a File System Check. >_>

    Another sleepless night, beret?

    fsck is done as a very late resort in single user terminal (restart holding Apple S) and I would use /sbin/fsck -fy

    Terminal console is basically a Unix shell window. You should get a basic Unix book to learn more about the Unix commands and how they work.

    fsck is not an emergency tool. It's a standard maintenance tool, just like windows chkdsk. It just needs to be done with file system unmounted, as in single user mode.
