First issues with Leopard

I just recently found the time to install Leopard on my MackBook Pro. I chose to do the archive and install option and for the most part all went well. I was pleasantly surprised that many of the programs I had installed still worked. However when I went to check on my Keychain I noticed […]

Who are the people on your network
