My 2006 Mac Pro Is Having Issues…

I’ve loved this computer since I bought it in November 2006. It’s a massive workhorse, still. 2 dual-core 2.66GHz Xeon chips. 12 GB of RAM. 4 TB of hard disk. Still a fast machine. But it’s having problems. I think it’s just the video card, but I’m not sure. I ran memtest on it for about 20 hours straight, and it didn’t identify any problems. I am hopeful that replacing the video card will fix it, but that will still not be a cheap fix. Here’s what the video looks like right now

So, I Resurrected My Blog

After just over a week of it being dead, I brought it back, but hosted at This is what I should have done in the first place, instead of moving to Tumblr. So, almost everything is back, but some of the images and other artifacts are gone. (Stupid, stupid….) And most of the code samples will show up unformatted and uncolored until I either Gistthem, or wrap them in the WordPress short code.

Now I just need to write something interesting.
