As a follow up to my recent and voluntary change from a hard disk drive to a solid state disk in my MacBook, I just had to do the same for my iMac. Unfortunately, this time it wasn’t voluntary and slightly more complicated. That’s at least what I thought beforehand. Turns out … despite the fact that one has to take out the screen and ideally put in a new temperature sensor, it’s actually quite simple and done in less than 30 minutes. Which is in fact much less time than it took to restore the disk image on the new drive (several hours via USB). Anyways, up to now everything appears to be stable and even a bit faster than before … I’m starting to get the hang of taking apart Apple products ;)
We’re slowly getting ready for the Open Day in Garching, taking place on Saturday, 22 October 2016.
Visit us between 11 am and 6 pm or join our free screening of ‘Particle Fever‘ at 6 pm.
We’ll have a great programme, including a BYOPD event, presentations of live events and data from CERN, a cosmic-ray detector, the large ATLAS LEGO model and more …
I unlocked the new stats table for my little Consecutive Number Plate Spotting site today.
You can now easily get everybody’s stats in one glimpse and sort the data by columns.
Just a few impressions from our Allgäu holidays.
Returning from my short trip to Sydney and back in my office I got surprised by a package containing the printed proceedings of the IX International Conference on Interconnections between Particle Physics and Cosmology (PPC2015) I went to in July last year.
