If you want on or off the Mac Ping List, Freepmail me.
Been using the developer preview for a while, no problems.
Question for anyone who has upgraded via the app store:
What is the full build number for the “official issue” of 10.8.3 ?
Is it 12D78 ??
Eventually they’re going to run out of cats.
No issues installing 10.8.3 on my MBA.
The fan on my Mac Mini stopped spinning past 1800 rpm after installing it. Had to install smcfan control to keep from frying my cpu.
iMac is still on 10.6.8 with no issues. Wish I could put SL on my 2012 Mini....
I haven't a clue. . .
“I haven’t a clue. . .”
You can check this by clicking “About this Mac” under the Apple menu.
In the window that opens, click “more info...”
Towards the bottom, it will say “Software OS X 10.8.3 (xxxx).
The xxxx is the build number.
After 13 years of windows machines at my office, about 5 years ago, I switched to a Mac. This update, like every other update/major upgrade over the past 5 years worked flawlessly the fist time.
When I think back to how much unpaid technical support I contributed to Microsoft’s bottom line, I regret it. I’ll never get that part of my life back.
Oh, I know, but I haven’t been home to update my Mac, so, no way to do that. Sorry.
I hope they don't give up before they get to Liger. It's pretty much my favorite animal. Bred for its skills in magic.
