I did not mean that, or imply that <smile> I used fiddling in context of very detailed work requiring great skill and patience ie a fiddly job is one where considerable care is required as well as skill to achive a successful outcome. I'm sorry that my venacular conveyed the Oxford meaning.

I have a 2011 iMac 27. It can't go past Migh Sierra.
So I want a frontend on my catelina macbook and one on the iMac.
But, as you said "covered above" so thanks.

I posted the lldg trace of a crash, and posted that I had been unable to get another. Perhaps fine weather makes even the worst recordings look good. Rain (40 mm tomorrow) so I'll try then.
ciao n thanks
