I'm a computer guy. I've been programming since the early 80s, starting with BASIC on a Commodore Pet. I've worked on HPUX, BSD and various other *nix as well as Windows since 3.0. My new work provides Apple laptops, but I've never learned to use a Mac. How hard can it be?

Grey Screen of Death

After talking to a couple of my coworkers, I have concluded that the restarting problems I was having are probably related to the RAM upgrade I had put in a few days before it all started.  Interestingly, the first time we brought it up after putting in the RAM, it died almost immediately.  We have ordered another set of RAM and I've been shutting down and restarting the computer every few days.  I also reinstalled the FitBit software with no problems.  Once I get the new RAM in there, I'll stop restarting it, which I'm really looking forward to.
