Aha the last piece of the puzzle (until I get my memory upgrade later). This article covers an OWC 2.5″ Tray Installation for SSD on MacPro 2009.
Here’s the OWC 2.5″ Drive Tray installation… took longer to pull out of the box and take pictures than actually install (and much longer to write this blog post!). As I noted before I connected my SSD and installed the drive on the Optical Bay SATAs for OS Installation via Time Machine backup of my 13″ MacBook Pro (2010).
It really WAS this simple. It’s a lovely box!
Open the box, pull out the tray. I put the SSD next to to make sure the hole align (note that it came with screws in this kit!)
The speed differences on the optical bay SATA and motherboard are minimal, standard SATA2 speeds. If I feel adventurous I may get a SATA3 PCI Express card for it, but these speeds are more than enough for my uses.
This tray is definitely worth the money — 2 thumbs up!
So far OWC has great kudos in my book for supporting non-supported Macs such as my new (to me!) 2009 MacPro.
There’s a pretty challenging song and dance routine with this character. I’m stoked to rise to the level to perform this song.
I’ll have updates and perhaps backstage rehearsal pics as I have permission and time to post them. Until then RUN AWAY!

With Infinity quickly gaining interest in the local gaming group, I’ve decided to post my How To Play Infinity Playlist with videos produced by the folks at Corvus Belli.
The intros are basic, but very easy to follow. There’s so much depth to the game that it’ll take us a while to get it all right.
In the next few months I’ll be posting more about my Infinity experiences. My free time is about to be even less with work and a huge personal project coming up — so don’t wait on the edge of your seat 😉

No idea what it is yet, but I’m always excited to see new stuff come from my favorite Operating System.
Check it out and watch intently at Ubuntu.com
Yeowsers. When it goes down, it goes down fast! I knew it was coming a few months ago so I purchased a spare hard drive to archive/install to.
Took about two and a half hours to recover my apps, data and settings and lost only one of my virtual machines (Windows Vista, for IE9 testing) and a few other Apps that I decided to just reinstall from the App Store, but I’m back up and going with all my old settings even without using Time Machine as my backup source.
Well played, Apple. Well played. Now to use Disk Utility to do a partition copy of my Windows Boot Camp to the new hard drive–we’ll see how that goes 😉
In preparation for the event/tournament (Chaos vs. Imperial) I’m getting my 1500 points of Black Legion ready to go.
Looks like I have 13 models to paint to be ready for Saturday’s tournament. Quite attainable.
Here’s a preview and my list.
Michael “The Professor” V. and I had a great game of lance vs lance BattleTech at Galaxy Comics tonight. It was an even game with the same mechs vs same mechs are we’ve not played in a while and wanted to get our methods working again.
It was a very close game with him coming in as the victor thanks to some not-so-awesome rolls including a snake-eye consciousness roll on my Atlas. Poop happens, we had a blast!! I set the board up for a nice sized game, we did a drop deployment and ended up on maybe 2 hexes the whole game. SHORT RANGE COMBAT!!!
heh, here are some pics:
