    Tried opening my address book this morning and it tells me the database is corrupt. I repaired permissions in the disk utility and tried opening a back up, nothing worked. Any thoughts?

    What was the backup? Where'd you get it from and did you make it yourself? Is there a file named AddressBook.data.previous in the Application Support folder on your Home Library? If so, drag the file named AddressBook.data (in the same folder) to the Desktop, rename the previous version to AddressBook.data and try reopening Address Book. Of course, this must all be done while Address Book is closed. :)
