Saturday, October 31st, 2009

I moved my website to a new hosting provider: Peer 1 Networks If you’re looking for a great net hosting company with great customer service, I highly recommend Peer 1. Among the reasons I chose Peer 1 are their supernetwork, FirstCall Support and a 100% network uptime SLA..

Upgrading SATA drive in the Mac Mini

Sunday, September 23rd, 2007

I wasn’t happy with the performance of the 4200RPM laptop drive that came factory installed in the Mac Mini. After doing some research on the web, I determined that it was possible to upgrade the drive to a standard size/performance SATA drive, so I proceeded to upgrade.

First, I obtained a NewerStack v2 to hold the drive. I bought a Western Digital Raptor to be the brawn. It was the fastest SATA drive (at the time), so it was a great upgrade. Here are the pictures:
