    Well I had my first lockup today... i was in finder looking at some files on a external drive and then i just got the rainbow wheel. i let it set there for about 15 minutes no luck, then i manually stopped finder. After that nothing seemed to work right until I rebooted.

    Oh well that the first one since I got the thing...... Windows would have locked up 10 times over by now.

    This kind of thing is responsible for almost all my OSX crashes, whether it is an unresponsive CD/DVD or a hanging network share or an external drive, Finder just seems to wait forever rather than just giving up and moving on. I removed one of the main offenders when I ripped out my Superdrive for an Optibay!
