I’m so grateful for the work that I’ve been doing for the last few weeks. It has been a wonderful project that has kept me busy every single day of the week except for the weekends. I’ve been putting in 10-hour days on average. Most of it is email support, which I have been considering the best Christmas gift ever. I really enjoy this type of work although I may not always agree with that statement. I recently started diving into Virtual Private Server support and that is also a thrill especially when I’m in the middle of solving a new problem with emails coming from an external service.
My mid-2011 iMac was performing slower this past week on 12 GB RAM so I ordered the maximum memory of 32 GB for it. Four cards of 8 GB each from Crucial arrived this morning. I’ve been using Crucial a very long time. I had almost removed the LCD screen when I realized that the RAM bay was accessible just below the monitor. I tediously screwed down the screen using my electronic repair grip pliers and the correct star driver. The grips kept the screws from latching on to the strong magnets or falling through the cracks. I got it all back together then pulled out the old memory, blew out the dust, and seated the new cards. Plugged back in the power, cables, and rebooted. No more sluggish behavior.
