    Seems to be working

    Applied and it DOES feel more secure. My PowerBook didn't explode so those of you waiting to see whether it kills your Mac can go ahead and update.
    Also, I think this release means that 3Ghz G5 Powerbooks made out of unobtainium are right around the corner!

    Hey, this is Apple...

    They've broken the time barrier. By pulling products from the future, how can you expect them not to stay ahead of Microsoft. ;)

    it did not require a restart. Seems to be fine and dandy.

    Surely...

    Someone will shortly claim that this update killed their Mac and lament that Apple should get its act together before releasing crappy updates. It's just a matter of time and so utterly predicable. :-)

    in answer to surely...

    This update killed my Mac! It won't restart, turn off, fix my bacon, or fry my car anymore! Apple should get their act together before releasing crappy updates! They even screwed up the date! hey... that gives me an idea...

    fixed it

    ok, I just set the date on the computer to 5-24-04, and everything's fine. They just released it early. Don't ask how I changed it with the computer unable to turn on or restart or fry my car. :)
