Here are the highlights from today’s Blogroll dive:

Bryan shares his method of troubleshooting PCs. (I’m sorry, but I don’t have a specific method for troubleshooting Macs, because my recommended maintenance routine usually solves all of the problems that I have encountered. And, it never hurts to have AppleJack installed and an emergency boot CD lying around, just in case you can’t completely boot into OS X.)
Owen posts the WordPress v1.5.2 changes in plain english.
Brian briefly discusses time management.

  1. Thanks James, I’ll have to bookmark those articles and sites in case someone ever thinks of asking me for Mac-related troubleshooting. (Fortunately, I’ve only had to do that once, and it was only using the restore CD.)

  2. Yes, I firmly believe that the best troubleshooting tools, for any computer, are the installation and restore discs. Whenever I am asked to fix someone else’s computer, I ask “Have you backed up your data?” or “Would you mind losing any data on this computer?” If they have a very recent backup, or if they don’t mind losing any data, then I just do a clean install (re-format and install). It’s the quickest solution, and it fixes everything.
