I love Thunderbolt and Firewire800 transfer speeds! Now common external hard drives hold terabytes of data, and 10+ GB of files can transfer between devices in less than five minutes. This was unimaginable (by most of us not REALLY understanding Moore’s law as it applies to file transfer speeds) just ten years ago… maybe even five years ago. Amazing.

Mac laptop + Thunderbolt to Firewire Adapter + External Firewire hard drive = File Transfer bliss.

I’m doing a clean install of all the software applications on my MacBook Air laptop on a slightly larger hard drive. All my previously installed software applications as well as my running list of re-installed apps (12 so far this evening) are listed on my Mac Apps page. For some reason MinecraftEDU won’t launch for me with Java 7 installed, but I’m not going to troubleshoot that further tonight…
