It must be karma. I’ve noticed the main reason that Macs don’t get slower over time because they tend to have fatal system crashes after about two or three years. I have been known to make light comedy (nothing too serious) about that. So now my own system is breaking down after a no-doubt-soon-to-be-fatal crash. On the floor that is.
Poor thing. (On the other hand… it had gotten awfully slow over the last four years anyway…;) )
