This tip saved my bacon
Authored by: Loan iRanger on May 08, '02 03:27:21AM
My beige G3 crashed while downloading a large file, but after restart, it wouldn't boot beyond the "Starting Network Services" message. By a stroke of luck, I had a back-up of my /var/db/local.nidb, and after reading this tip, I simply replaced it and was on my merry way.

The moral of the story: if you haven't made a back-up of this directory, do it now.
