I had recently had a Mac on Lion unable to load the Users & Groups Preference Pane.
My IT support had suggested reimaging the computer. Reinstalling the Operating System, reloading the applications, and transferring back the User information from Time Machine Backup. Well, after doing all of that, the problem reappeared immediately. I scoured through Apple Support Communities and found this fix. For some reason, some transparent users are showing up in your system. They need to be deleted. But since you cannot load Users & Groups... it becomes a problem. Here is the solution / procedure. Quit System Preferences. Launch Terminal. (Applications/Utilities/Terminal) Copy & Paste these commands. sudo dscl . delete /Users/Guest press enter
Terminal may ask for your Administrator Password, enter that. sudo dscl . delete /Users/Guest1 press enter
Terminal may ask for your Administrator Password, enter that.
Relaunch your System Preferences. All should be back to norma…
Chicken feed! UPDate: We tried, but the eggs didn't hatch!
Lesson: Failure is ok. The eggs were fertilized in winter, and I guess that this makes the eggs less likely to hatch. This was a first attempt, and I guess we didn't get spring chickens!
But, we learned about live streaming, chickens, and some changes to try next time. Original Post:
My students were interested in hatching chicken eggs. We talked through the problem, and decided to create a live stream, similar to the April the Giraffe baby watch.
So, we are currently on Day 1 of our 21 day hatch. Incubator is set up, student jobs decided, and the live feed is up!
