Rogue update

I updated my OS on my laptop today - to OSX 10.2.8 and all was going well. It asked me to restart - as one would expect after installing a system upgrade. When it started up again, I noticed that something was different, the Dock was normal. A long time ago, I installed software called TransparentDock that allowed me to tweak certain settings of my Dock - various colours and opacity. This allowed me to have it looking the way that I wanted. And through all the OS upgrades I have done since then, this was fine. But not this time. So I tried to run TransparentDock again and I clicked to apply my settings and voila - my Dock was gone! Well I did a bit of searching online and determined that the best course of action was to reinstall the upgrade. So I did that and now I have my Dock back. I guess I’ll have to live with the way it looks for now. :)

This is more or less a warning for those people who were/are in a similar situation. Apparently there are a number of people who had similar troubles. Sneaky, sneaky sir.
