Yes, I see the dates. Didn't think it was that long ago. And thought why not just continue here since my issue was somewhat similar. But sure I can start a new topic...
The thing is, I know you high level guys probably think most people posting here are computer illiterate n00bs, but I'm not one of them. 😉 While I'm far from any sort of OS X master (I have a lot to learn still) I've been using Macs on a regular basis since my mother got her first Mac in 1989 and I have been an OS X user supporter and system administrator and consultant for soon over a decade.
