If Only We Could “Maggie” Maggie Herself | SciEditor
“If you’ve needed to resuscitate a problematic Word document, you’ve probably done “a Maggie.” Copying everything but the final pilcrow into a fresh Word document breathes hope into files that seem beyond redemption because Word saves a hoard of information in that last hidden character. And that hoard can cause Word to crash or fail, again and again. Omitting the final pilcrow purges the problematic hidden code.”

jwz: Oh, Hypnowheel, how I loathe you
As a potential Mac gremlin:

“I had similar issues with a 2012 non-Retina MacBook Pro. Mysterious beach-balling that seemed vaguely related to disk IO, minimal CPU usage, no memory pressure. Disk checks all looked fine, RAM checks were fine.

“Turned out that the SATA cable was going bad. Replaced that and everything immediately worked fine. This is a very common issues with MacBooks of that era and it's really hard to diagnose.

“Typically you'd expect a desktop computer to have a much more robust SATA cable than the whispy, brittle thing in a MacBook, but I'm not sure for an iMac. Might be worth looking into anyway.”
