Another day, another complete reinstall

Recently, my now-two-year-old PowerBook had been doing Odd ThingsѢ. Things like the Keychain suddenly freaking out. Beach balls o’ death at every turn. All my calendars disappeared, and my Mail was not happy.

I tried so many things. It seemed that most of the errors were tied back to the Keychain issue. It was as if Keychain was suddenly suffering from Alzheimer’s. Nothing really helped. So I had to put her down.

There was so much clutter on this thing anyway. Some files trace back to 1996. A lot of junk didn’t need to be on there any more.

The work upgrade went so well that I thought I’d give this thing a fresh start. So far so good. Noticeable improvement in overall performance, and I’m feeling like things make sense again.
