I agree this is a great tale and awesome and useful information. I'm not nitpicking here but wouldn't it have been quicker and easier to just restore from backup?

It's because of the sharing that goes on in this group that I've learned so much about Macs over the years. The fact that you, Dan and a few others who are really, really hands-on as well as book-smart knowledgeable take the time to share your experiences makes this group more valuable than any other single resource for Macs on the Internet.
