Being in my dotage years (ie, being past the "*-teen years" 
classification, when anyone above the *teen classification knows 
nothing, which is why teenagers are employed first because they know 
everything :-) ), I *THOUGHT*, thought mind you, thought that I read 
that there was a difference in the way an USB installation stick is 
created in Maverick and that an attempt using Lucid will not create such 
an installable USB stick using Maverick as the input - that is, you need 
to use Maverick, and not Lucid, to create such an USB. But I may be 
wrong..... Alas, I HAVE been known, sadly :-( , to be wrong.... :-) .


Went to a discount massage parlour the other day. Wasn't 'til I paid me money that I found out that it was self-service.
