I have searched the forums (and beyond) to no avail, but if someone knows of an answer out there I'd be happy to be pointed in the right direction. I have a Blueberry iMac (SL, no FW) G3 running 10.2.8. I don't use it that often, as I have a PowerBook for primary use, and had recently taken to even keeping it unplugged to free up wall space and such. Today I started it up to look for an old file, and almost immediately the Console screen and the Finder.crash.log appeared. Console displays the following message: 2005-01-02 14:16:31.156 Console Exception raised during posting of notification. Ignored. exception: *** NSRunStorage, _NSBlockNumberForIndex(): index (359613) beyond array bounds (359613) It just repeats and repeats in <1 min. intervals, with the time advancing and the numbers in parentheses getting larger. I can launch other apps, or at least the Disk Utility. I have repaired the disk from a startup CD (10.2.0), repaired permissions (first mistakenly from the CD, then from the HD), reset PRAM, started up in safe mode, and even run fsck - f from single user mode. But every restart brings the same result. I can guess that the computer needs a new battery, since the clock has been reset the last couple times I plugged it in and started it up, but would that be causing a problem like this? Let me know if I should also post the info from Finder.crash.log Thanks in advance for any advice you can give.
