Um, yeah. That downgrade thing? Not gonna happen since the ’09 unibody MBP’s only run 10.6. Silly me. Haven’t been paying attention again.

Have decided to downgrade to OS X 10.5. Experiencing too many issues w/ spontaneous logout. Lots of other 10.6 users seem to have same prob.

Toyota fleet manager called to buy my 2006 Tundra since they can’t sell new models. Gave them ridiculous terms. Doubt I’ll hear back again.

Using Chrome as my default browser for the past week. There are some things that bug me about it, but it could be the Safari killer for me.
