command line fsck

Restart in "single user mode" by holding down Command-S while the Mac is starting up. In single user mode, you're dropped into a command line version of Mac OS X, without windows or a mouse pointer. Type "fsck -y" to check (and repair, if necessary) the boot disk, after which you restart the Mac by typing "reboot" (sans quotes for both commands). Disk Utility and fsck rely on the same engine, so running fsck in single user mode is exactly the same as running Disk Utility.

I had some t-shirts printed. They cost me $5 each. I went around to different shops late saturday and found i had missed all of the buyers. The girls at Naked City seemed to be the most interested. One girl said she would buy one if i had one printed on a girl's shirt (i didn't) and told me to come back when the buyer came back. That was encouraging. It seems i should have gotten them printed on American Apparel shirts, which i could have at a higher cost. Red Light said they would take three and price them at $12 with a 50% consignment (2 smalls and 1 medium!).

Dave Cooper draws with these. They require more control than i have.

This is the high tech workplace where all the magic happens. Notice the old, rusted car on the property next to where i work.
