Curious George: New MacOSX user I'm using MacOSX (the not newest one), and suddenly everything is failing. Ever time I reboot, all my user settings are gone, my bookmarks, and the iTunes library is corrupted again. I assume I must have some bad settings. Anyway, what I want to do is start fresh with a new user. I can create one, and make that one an Administrator, but how do I share everything (all settings, desktop, etc...) with the new one, from the old one, so that I don't have to recreate everything from scratch?

I came to the UK in '78 as a wee nipper and caught the last of this company - it seemed the name was everywhere in quiet little village shops, tea shops in the towns, on tv, and on posters thru' London. Lyons even had the first business computer evar! Lyons Maid! Lyons Tea! Then it was gone. more inside
