KILL THE MAC
My fight against OS X continues. Arrrrrrrrggggggghhhhhh. I have tried a fresh new user account and still it destroys itself. I have currently turned off my SSH and Web server and I have survived for two hours now. Lets hpe and pray that it is something to do with one of those two. My hot favourite at the moment is that it is because I have "HostnameLookups" in in apache. The reason I suspect this is that the breakdown always starts with the network seeming to go down. Maybe it is the lookupd daemon being over used. If this is the problem I will either turn off "HostnameLookups" or set up my own nameserver.
