4 days off (woooo!) -- Weekend poject: After looking through new & used Apple desktop options, I've decided to stick with my 2008 Mac Pro for as long as I can. Going to run the High Sierra Patcher on my bot drive & see if I can update this thing from El Capitan so I can run the newest Logic & Adobe stuff. I figure I'll buy a couple years if it works. Step 1: Procure a suitable but affordable USB drive. Looks like I'm going shopping tomorrow with the masses.

Here's the deal - I've got 7 hard drives in this thing -- 2 SSD boot drives, a Raid 0 for storage & 3 backup drives of same. I like my scheme. There's nothing Apple has offered since the cheese grater Mac Pro's that doesn't make migrating all this a complete royal PITA.
