Boom! POW!

Just spent a few hours figuring out what was slowing my Mac down to a crawl. Was trying to make some changes to my contacts (as in trimming the list down a bit) and everything just slowed down to a C-r-a-w-l-l-l-l-l-l. Got to a point where I couldn't open or close anything. Even after a reboot.

If this was a PC I'd be saying there's a virus up in here.

Finally narrowed it down to something to do with web browser, Safari. Always liked Firefox or Chrome better any way.

But there is definitely a little hitch in my git-along on Safari. I even updated and disabled both Java and Flash.

Need to figure that mess out, I just do not have to do it right now. Jeebus! Wasted my night messing with this. Also had some version conflicts with a couple other programs I managed to fix as well.

I'm lookin' at YOU, Double-Command! And YOU, Textexpander!

Crap like this just drives me CRAZY. Feels so good when you figure the thing out though.

Hah! Who am I foolin'? As much espresso as I had early in the evening I was not going to sleep anyway. I was buzzin' on that stuff. And now it is nearly 0430, I may as swell just stay up at this point. But it will be an early night for me on this leap day.
