    I convinced/helped a friend upgrade her 1.83Ghz CD MacBook to Snow Leopard. It has not been a smooth ride. Right off the bat there have been persistent and recurring DNS problems. She has also found that it won't shut down without her going through and quitting or force quitting open apps--skype being of particular issue. Tonight she had a kernel panic, it seems. It appears skype is the problem app, but this didn't occur before the SL upgrade. Is it coincidental or correlated?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Here's the report she forwarded to me:

    Just checking... does she have the latest version of Skype?

    That crossed my mind as well. She's running 2.8.0.722. Not the latest latest, but pretty close it seems (incidentally, it's the same version I'm running).
