Grrrrrr Computer problems today. Either a hard drive or memory issue as I boot into the Unix type prompt interfaace for some fixit routines. Hard drive may be kaput.
*Update* Looks like, most likely, the internal hard drive has crapped out. This really bites. But the good news is that I backed up my hard drive on Friday or Saturday by chance. Hopefully that backup on my external drive will make things good once the internal hard drive is replace if that is indeed the problem.
