Fingers Crossed for 2021 ...

2020 was the worst! COVID kept the museum closed for much of the year and a mains water pipe bursting causing a flood kept us closed for the rest. 
We're hoping to re-open in the next few months ... fingers crossed! Read More >>>

Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters and What To Do About Them Date: March 1997 Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters and What To Do About Them

Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters and What To Do About Them, Third Edition is the definitive guide to have on hand when your Apple Macintosh rolls a bomb in your general direction. (For the MacNovice, the bomb indicates a terminal system error.) The book is the complete guide to troubleshooting the Mac, and has an entry for every imaginable disaster that might befall your Mac from bootup to shutdown. Along the way, you'll find some incidental treasure--advice on tuning your Mac, using virtual memory, decoding the deep mysteries of the System Folder, and performing routine maintenance tasks to keep your system cranking along at top speed. This edition also features new information on PCI Macs, PowerPC Powerbooks, coverage of Mac System 7.5/7.6 issues, and an entirely new chapter on Internet protocols, Web browsers, PPP and similar issues emphasizing "problems and solutions."

Sad Macs is not only well written, it's elegantly organized. Besides the kind of comprehensive index you might wish for in a troubleshooting guide, the author also includes an elaborate "Symptom Index." The final third of the book is devoted to "Fix-It" guides to specific problem sets, such as diagnosing problems with system extensions, and throughout these guides are usefully cross-referenced. If you've got a Mac, this is an essential utility, and a must-have desktop reference guide.
