Ya know when you first get her.... Everything works so quickly, you never see the 'thinking' pinwheel, and the biggest of all- the app icons maybe bounced twice before opening the program. We've only been together for a year and she is slow, icons bouncing 30 times to open apps, having to force quit programs, etc. I lead a simple life: Mail, Safari, MS Office, Adium, and some Photoshop. I keep giving her all the scheduled upgrades. You know how they get... she just isn't like she was when we first got together. Dr. Phil: What can I do to put some 'pep' back into her???
