Studio Upgrades and Repairs Status
July 31st, 2010: Repairs to the Studio Computer complete, named "Inv-Sol"
for my Invincible Solutions business name from years ago. though it took many
hours to troubleshoot, here are the results. Click on the pic for Higher-Resolution:
The Mac Mini Computer
I completed work on my Mac Mini, replacing a failing external hard drive,
configuring the hardware, and attempting an upgrade to Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6)
operating system. I had to revert back to the version I was using, Tiger (OS X 10.4)
as much of my software, which I bought on eBay (Adobe. Macromedia, etc) was not
supported, being too old, and are way to expensive to update. (And there really is not
a need, seeing as I my needs are well met by the versions I do have).
I was able to use one of my DVD-RW's by adding it to an external case, so it is
portable and functional for use on both my MAC and PCs.
The Broadcast Computer
There was nothing needed to be done on the Broadcast Computer, but do a routine backup
and a good internal cleaning.
