Was this the reason I reinstalled?
Just noticed this text over at plazes:
Update recommended: new version fixes instability and excessive memory usage on Mac OS 10.4!
Hm, my computer did get a lot worse shortly after installing that widget. I wonder if I had the fixed or the not-so-fixed version. I wonder if it’s really fixed now?
Regardless, it’s good to have a clean machine.
(What’s that thing called in psychology where you tend to like something more when you’ve paid more for it—because you’re now invested in it?)
