Poor Victoria has been attempting to slowly kick the bucket over the years. I already had to replace the power supply in the Mac Pro once before, and she’s been running solidly since. With the exception of my WiFi signal to the router upstairs in my landlord’s part of the house. If you follow me on Twitter, then you’ve likely seen at least one of my outbursts over the shitty connectivity I used to have with it (and in doing so, ruining the connectivity for the rest of my apartment unit).

I know I’ve been AWOL a while. Trying to find some motivation to blog again. I’m under the metaphorical weather with stress and haven’t been myself in a while.

However, I was recently pleased to accomplish a successful upgrade (courtesy of some help over at MacForums) of the following into my Mac Pro desktop:

Sapphire ATi HD4870 1GB



It’s upgrading a dated nVidia 8800GT that I received when I purchased the system. I haven’t had the pleasure of really stress testing it yet, but I’m hoping to find some molecular modeling/energy minimization software to experiment with to tax both it and the rest of the system with some thoughts about my protein of interest.
