Before shutting down, I ran the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test. It ran a few times using the 5GB size selected.
I then shutdown and replaced the stock SSD with the new one I got from OWC (macsales.com). The drive is an Aura Pro 2 1 TB. The following is the results of the same test made a few hours after the new drive was restored from my Time Machine backup made just before shutting down. Definitely faster, and of course roughly 4 times the storage capacity.
A while back I tried to update my Mac Pro with a 1 TB drive. I ran into lots of issues and finally had to go back to my old stock SSD. I’ve recently decided to get another SSD and bring my system back up to 1 TB. It’s tougher to get an off the shelf unit because of the proprietary connector Apple used. So I went with OWC (Macsales.com). It’s installed and will be testing things out. It is faster according to testings (Blackmagic’s Disk Tester) but I won’t know until I really start doing things if I see any real world speed increases.
So I’m really gone 99.9% from FB. I took all my posts, messages, likes and everything I could away. My account should appear new and empty – though it’s not completely deleted.
I had to use some Chrome extensions to help me with the tasks, and it took a few hours for things to process. I’m sure none of it was actually removed from FB but it appears to be gone.
I left FB mostly because of all the bull shit that’s posted on there and it was no longer something I wanted in my life. Now people can refer to FB all they want, but I won’t be bombarded with their views on religion or politics. I’m happier this way.
Sure, I’ll miss keeping up with my friends and family, but there was many ways to do that before FB came along. Today especially simply sending a text message is enough to state you’re alive and around. Good enough for me.
