Glad to see the progress from Apple. What's Apple's deal with the "Tuesday" releases? It's like the Apple holy day or something. Smile

That sounds good to me! I also hope it helps with the issues I've been having with coming out of sleep mode.

I was hoping for a major update to Front Row. Oh well, there's always hope for Snow Leopard. Wink

Only two hours left for getting the Combo. It looks to be slow going for now.

My update was only 286MB in Software Update, but it wouldn't finish.

I got this message instead.



Have any of you guys seen that one before? Surprised

I liked it better when Apple had a smaller market share. The servers were much faster then. Razz

I'm got the same error message two or three times. I even tried trashing the SoftwareUpdate.plist file, but it came right back. It must be a server error or something on Apple's side. I'm going to wait until later to try again. Sad

Well, that kinda sorta makes me feel better. I was thinking there might be something wrong with my MacBook Pro. I'm going to let things cool down for a while and try again later.

No need to wait. I've actually had that problem before and repairing the disk permissions was the key to letting me continue.

Well this is unexpected-- the 10.5.7 update fixed my missing Windows folder icon under the Startup Disk Preferences.

Previously, I had to use Boot Champ to boot to my Windows 7 partition.
