Need new direction for this blog

I guess it’s been long enough that I haven’t posted in here.

I need to get a new direction for this blog, the Fuji X100 has been sold, I got tired of here issues. I also sold my film cameras, a Nikon F2 (sorry to let her go) and a Nikon F5 (never used it much). Film is so nice, but also a big pain in the posterior, I have to send my films to a special lab in Athens to be developed, then I must spend hours scanning the slides in my computer etc. Too much for me right now. I still have my Nikons (D700 and D300) and all my lenses, but I need to get rid of at least one of them, I want to replace it with a camera which will allow me to capture 4K video as well as pictures, but that will be the subject of another post. Right now, I have to figure out what I want this blog to be.

Ideas are certainly appreciated.

  1. Hi John and thanks for your wonderful post. I am about to do an upgrade of my A1150 MBP 1.1 2006, starting with the HDD.

    Unfortunately all the threads I can find online regarding the topic of changing hard disk drive to solid state in a A1150, are from people experiencing problems running a SATA III drive in a machine designed for SATA I speeds. It seems the only people who post on the topic are those failing, rather than those who have succeeded and wish to impart lessons learnt.

    I read in your blog that you run an SSD in your machine. May I ask if you had any issues with compatibility or can share any information on the changeover process you undertook, or if not can direct to an appropriate source?

    Thanks again for your wonderful tech blog posts!

    • Well, my MacBook is a late 2008 one, so I am not sure if what I’ll say applies to yours as well.

      What I did was to remove the internal hard disk and install it in a USB disk enclosure. I installed the SSD inside the Macbook and then I used SuperDuper! to copy the disk to the SSD. Since the SSD was only a 128 GB one, I also ordered one of those things, which allow you to replace the DVD player with a second disk and I installed the disk I removed as a user disk in the Macbook too. Simple and easy. The Macbook has been working fine since then, without any issues.

      But again, I am not sure if it will work in your 2006 Macbook.
