I've been programming since my early teens and like so many of us, I started Basic on the usual home computers like Atari 800XL, ZX Spectrum etc. "Turned pro" about 20 years ago.

I've been mostly doing C++ during this time, writing anything from device drivers for various operating systems to trading systems for banks.

comment Free and easy alternatives to Ghost?
Clonezilla would've been my first recommendation also, but I doubt it meets the OP's requirement of an "Easy to use GUI".

comment Sanitizing Thunderbird 3.0
I'd have to disagree - TB3 works well for me on Windows (Mac OSX is a different story, though).

This seems to be the case, as the fresh installer cured the problem.

comment MacBook won't connect to the internet via airport or ethernet
I don't think it's an issue that is likely to be cured by a router reset (assuming you're using the router's DHCP server). I'd try to give the MacBook a static IP address first to see if that's working, then have a google for <your router> + DHCP to see if there are any known problems.

comment Is it possible to grow a volume in a Mac OS X partition?
As you said, the problem appears to be the ability/inability of growing an HFS+ filesystem. Oh well, new image time methinks.

comment Is it possible to grow a volume in a Mac OS X partition?
Thanks for the suggestion - this is basically the procedure that I followed and while I can grow the size of the sparsebundle, I con't grow the size of the HFS+ drive inside it with that method, at least not now that it's got data on it. Looks like I'll have to put this bundle aside (and keep it for future use just in case) and create a new one.
