Currently downloading 1.34 GB of Mac OS X Update Combined
Wow, that’s a big one. I had hoped to have a long respite from wrestling with large updates. Yesterday was spent dueling with a long-time problem that had plagued my wife’s Toshiba and its Windows 7 OS; update was broken so downloading and installation attempts failed repeatedly, generating code 80072EE2 and 800B100 errors. Solutions offered by Microsoft et al did not work, or only worked a little. It was a day of munging and kludging before her system was again safe and sound. Her system is only one-year-old and we had hoped that new hardware with Windows 7 would be a fresh start after we gave up trying to salvage her previous Toshiba / Vista system. I am more than a bit disappointed.
We shall see if my MacBook can swallow this big fish without all sorts of floundering.
