10.4.9 PPC

I'm using a PB 17 1.33GHz. 10.4.9 Combo Update went smoothly. (As an aside, I've never experienced any issues with OSX, going back to Jaguar which was the original OS on my PB.)
Prior to updating, ran Cocktail to delete Caches, Histories, etc. Completed a Verify Permissions (all were in order) for post-update comparison. (After Update, re-ran Verify; no changes.)
So far (and I've been to all my principal sites, including Financial) everything working smoothly.

Good to hear - I've never

Good to hear - I've never had any major issues myself. Did you do a backup first?
