    Just in case you didn't know it. I'm hoping for something wonderful with regard to my Aperture issues. Either way, I thought I'd let everyone know, in case they hadn't realized it yet.:smile:

    Thanks BBW, didn't know about this, it's a HUGE update - 438 Mb

    What Aperture issues do you have, as a matter of interest?

    My husband down loaded it and he said it was a disaster. It's made enerything slow and some things that ran before won't run now. I've decided to wait to see what others have to say.

    I installed it and everything runs smoothly. The laptop feels even cooler than before. That's a good sign.

    Mine seems fine too. Installed it on 2 MacBook Pros so far.

    Glenn, because I have an older MacBook Pro apparently I, and many others with older Macs, have a graphics card that is not able to deal well with Aperture 3. I get artifacts after a short time when I am editing photos. Sometimes they're big green boxes, sometimes they're magenta...sometimes they're shot through with all sorts of lines. Although they have never effected the output when I export, it puts a real damper on using it. There are many posts about this on the Aperture Support forum.:frown:

    Eventually I will be needing to get a new computer since I can't upgrade my memory anymore. Mine is a 2006 MacBook Pro.

    I like Aperture and keep hoping for some sort of healing process, but don't think it's coming.

    As for everything since this upgrade, I don't notice any issues at all. And yes, I have Snow Leopard.

    Aye, you'll like snow leopard shooter. My Computer shuts down in like 10 secs and I had an extra 8 GB free space after the install.

    Thanks BBW. I too have Snow Leopard, running on an iMac with 4Gb of memory so no issues with Aperture but since installing the upgrade I've noticed that the start-uptime is a tad longer, otherwise no problems

    My iMac - this new thing that you have all persuaded me to get "hung" this morning

    Must be my PC fingers

    is there a Ctlr - Alt - Del

    There isn't even a Delete key on this mini key board that I have - still it's very cool looking and to use

    Apple, Option(alt), Escape - hit each key and keep them down for a second and a little window will pop up and give you the option to Quit the offending application that is not responding.

    Bill,
    On the left top you'll see the Apple...
    Cluck that and the drop down menu shows
    Force Quit..... That'll do it....
    Also... Press Apple on the keyboard, hold it and hit tab to see running programs at any time...
