A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 122. Today’s show will be a bit of a story, but in the telling I hope you get some insight into the process and procedures that I go through when my Mac starts acting up. I’m not saying these are necessarily the best or correct procedures, but they are simply an example of a typical path I might take.
