Unfortunately I didnt get my backup done in time and the laptop went down.
anyway I had most of the stuff copied accross but still have some wierdness on new laptop.
I wanted to make sure everything was owned by my user (called admin) so i was trying to
chown -R admin * in my home dir.
I kept getting “Operation not permitted”. My freind Gordon pointed out that the files were locked and to remove the lock i need to do:
sudo chflags -R nouchg <files>
