Thank you for helping to support my work!

I recently installed an SSD in the MacPro 1,1. Instead of cloning my current OS to it, I opted to start fresh. Since many of these tools need XYZ before you can install them this it the order I went. It took a few days and I’ve not migrated any of my data (address book, config files, email).

I’m running 10.6.8 until I can get a new video card, new processors, flash the EFI, and install Mavericks. Because of this there are things missing from this list (RVM, Bower, node.js, grunt, and jekyll to name a few off the top of my head) that I will add to later. published March 30, 2015
