i came here not to lurk, but to sieze control of system 10.3 with the help of one of you brain surgeons. :)
somehow, when changing computers from G3 to G4, and system 9 to system, i have administrated myself a password that i can't remove and therefore can upgrade NOTHING.
so far, i've inverted the screen, re-installed the entire system 6 times or so (maybe seven), have pestered thelife out of the internet company trying to re-establish connectivity.
so far, i have managed to poke enough buttons to fix most of those things (except for the inverted screen which a person in a different mac forum helped me to fix, but in re-installing and etc. repeat... i lost all those bookmarks.
and now, i've found you. :)
is there anybody here who can tell me how to dis-administrate myself? i'm not EVEN going to go through the inverted screen trick again. thanks!
I came across this site while doing a search on Alan Turing. Why? A)I'm reading 'Cryptonomicon', and B)I was bored at work.

I'm new here myself. Looking forward to solutions and assistance with the odd things that crop up in my administering two Macs at work and another two at home. I've been maintaining Macs since '89 in small environments to continuing accolades from my collegues - they just do not understand how easy it is to keep a Mac running sweetly. Now OSX is here and all the 'first-line' solutions have changed. I'm slowly coming to terms with the new techniques and expect to use this site for the deeper questions.
Thanks, Dani, for making this available to us 'workers in the field'. Now I don't need MacFixit anymore. And, maybe, I can offer some advice as well. BTW a Kiwi is a bird - the bitter green thing is a Kiwifruit (originally called Chinese Gooseberry).
Hey Calistayork! First find the forum that you would like to post your question in. When you see the long listing of everyone's threads, there should be a New Thread button near the top left and bottom left of the listing :)

Hello, just found you this morning. Great site and unfortunately one that I'll spend a lot of time at with my #!*&! computer!
I'm sitting at my desk in Blantyre - Malawi. It's 11.40 pm and I'm looking for some enlightening interaction - especially with regard to MAC OSX since I have recently acquired an IMAc and am finding it quite intriguing after having been a confirmed PC user for many years. :p
