    Hi all,

    I hope Ive posted in the right section!!
    Basically I arrived home hammered drunk last night and woke up with my laptop sitting on my chest and it appears to have set to default settings or something!!

    My address book is empty (no contacts). (I also lost my phone in my idiotic drunken ways - So have no phone numbers left!!)
    Calendar is also empty
    *Music is all there perfectly, (even in itunes)*
    Safari has no bookmarks any more!!
    General settings have reverted to factory settings.

    My initial thoughts were that i had somehow logged in as a different user or something, but this is not the case.

    Im in dire straights so any help at all would be hugely appreciated.

    BTW: :apple: iBook G4 running on Tiger, (so unfortunately no Time Machine! :mad:

    Thank You in advance.....

    Contacts etc searchable...

    Also Ive just realised that my contacts are searchable in spotlight, which once again makes it seem as though i am logged in as a different user.
    Also, when I double click on the contact it opens address book but doesnt show the contact that I have just clicked on (or any other contacts for that matter!!)
    But it says on System preferences that I am logged in as the administrator?

    To answer your question I dont think I have renamed the home folder...

    It appears you were right! I had renamed my "Library" as "LibraryL9" , God only knows why, good call!
