Oh, amazing. My late-2008 i Mac had gotten crazy slow lately. Spotted MacFUSE in system prefs & wondered, what's that doing there? +

Sat Nov 26 17:06:34 +0000 2011

Slowing my computer down ridiculously, is apparently what. -

Sat Nov 26 17:06:50 +0000 2011

Replying to @bigjondaniel

Nope. There was apparently an incompatibility between MacFUSE and Lion that poured molasses over the processors.

That is next on the agenda, if things slow down again. In the meantime, a good weeding & OnyXing.

My sense is that Parallels may reinstall it, but I'm not sure.

In fact, that comment led Holbo to ask me to guest-post, and that post got me an email from the folks at if:book. It all started there.

Crazy. I think there are a number of PO posts that pre-date that comment, but the audience for them was way smaller.

I will confess that there's something a little heartbreaking in the notion that six years have passed and the comment still holds.
