    Not sure if this belongs here, but I’m happy to report that Preview,Tools, Annotate has been restored to better functionality, so that it’s easier to enter text, arrows, and such on your images. Width of arrows and text size now much easier to manage. tongue laugh

    No problems thus far.

    As with most OS-X updates it went in, I rebooted, and things returned to normal. I’ve not noticed any difference in performance, behavior, or anything. As I understand this was all about patching potential security holes, which is a good thing.

    I may have had a problem with my Time Machine backup. This morning it claimed it failed due to the disk being removed. Now, my external firewire drive allotted to TM is pretty full, so TM has to do some pretty major removal to fit new stuff there. Not usually a problem, but this was a pretty significant sized update, so maybe it had some issues. However, the drive disappearing from the desktop makes me wonder if there is any problem with the new update and my FW 400-to-800 adapter connection…

    TM is running now. Prepped items and is currently “cleaning up” so we’ll see what happens this time around.

    Other than that, I haven’t noticed a difference, which is probably a good thing. smile

    After 10.6.3, I can no longer connect to another Mac with AFP. Restart, safe boot, and turning off firewall did not help.  However, I can still connect from a 10.6.2 Mac to the 10.6.3 Mac via AFP.  Has anyone else seen this?

    I used printer sharing from the MBP (10.6.3) to the Mac Pro (10.6.2).  That worked as expected - the doc printed.  After that, I was able to make the AFP connection in the expected way to the Mac Pro. I have no idea why that sequence would fix the AFP connection problem I reported earlier.  Hope it sticks!

    I had to re-enter the registration code for:
    Little Snitch

    I have no idea why. It is one more reason for owning and USING 1Password.
