So I finally installed the USB 3 card I've had for years

In my Mac Pro.

It's a Sonnet Allegro USB 3.0 4-port PCIe card that I got from our sponsor years ago.

If you're wondering why it took so long, I don't have a good explanation other than I was afraid of it causing sleep problems. Sleep is fine normally. However, I did have a problem when I put the machine asleep with an external USB drive connected through the card. It told me the drive wasn't unmounted correctly. I guess I just won't do that.

It sure is faster, and I really needed the speed for both external drives and SD/CF cards.

Is Sonnet still in business?

I remember getting a CPU processor from them for my LC.

Made a huge difference.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Same...put them in a dozen LCII machines in my classroom. Super Maze Wars ran so much better after that!

It made those machines last until the arrival of the Bondi iMacs.
