I'm retired. My favorite activity is to go out running with my friends, however I can only consume some of a day doing that. So I've decided to buy a Mac and learn everything I can about that machine.

I've been helping out folks on and I've decided to collect these investigations together for future reference. I do this for my own entertainment and to keep this work in a single location. I hope you find these articles useful (they are of course mostly boring!).
