Hi everyone and thanks for the concern..
Since I have to turn in my thesis by Monday.. and I can get it to
work on the unix machines on campus.. I decided to try and solve the
big mystery after that... (I will need to work on my mac in the
future :) )..
I did manage to increase the pool size and memory allocation in my
tex but it didn't work .. Someone suggested I reinstall my OS (rather
than archive and install as I did) but as I said.. since everything
else is working.. I will do it next week (post thesis).. all my files
work fine on the standard unix, so I don't think it is any errors in
my tex or bib files.
By the way.. do you want the regular log file the TexShop produces (I
couldn't see anything special there.. ) or another crash log?
Thanks for the support... it is very much appreciated!
