Since OS X 10.2.8 typing a name in the "TO" field, causes the beach ball to appear for several seconds. It may not be the OS update but does anyone know how to stop it? Is there a preference that should be trashed? The link to Contacts is so very slow even if the beach ball doesn't appear.

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
