    Question permissions to go to the bathroom?
    Okay, so I'm not that new to macs. It's been about 2 years since I switched. I'm no pro, but I feel thati can hold my own when it comes down to it. However, there are some things that I'd really like to know. For example...permissions...WTF? My PB has been recently having a few problems. all of which, hopefully will be fixed with the disk repair first aid that I'm doing. I decided to verify and repair permissions thinking it couldn't hurt, and noticed it said that a whole crap load of programs had incorrect permissions, with the symbols, dwsdrd-w or something along those lines. Anybody care to shed some light on what that line means? What exactly do permissions do? What the point of having permissions is? Oh, while you're at it, can you just set up a class time for me too...maybe we can talk about the meaning of life too. =P
    Thanks all!

    Now that you know what all of that means, what are you going to do with it?! I studied that stuff until I was legally blind. Now I just run Repair Permissions, comfortable in the knowledge that my Mac is smarter than me!

    And yes, you have permission to go to the bathroom!
