Hi there, welcome to my blog.

What's this all about? Well, that's a question I'm probably not even qualified to answer. I guess it started off because I had nothing better to do, but turns out that I kind of like it. So when I'm not working for The Man I like to take pictures, make videos and write about whatever else might seem like a good idea at the time.

From dragon boating to mountain biking, to road trips and travels overseas - this is me trying to enjoy life. Clock out at 5, eat, drink and don't forget to smile a lot.

27" iMac Memory Upgrade = Piece of Cake

Upgrading or replacing the ram on these new iMacs are a breeze. It took me 5 mins to triple my memory and quadruple my pleasure.

Here are the modules, shipped to my door in less than 24 hours. 8GB kit = $120.

Easy access to the RAM slots via three screws in the bottom of the computer. There are these two flaps that are tucked into the RAM slots that you just pull. 4 slots available/2 occupied.

Not really sure why these flaps are there but you pull them back (not out, the bottom is fixed) to see the free slots on top.

Insert the RAM module and repeat on both sides. I actually used the bottom of a plastic pen to push the stick in since it's a pretty tight squeeze for the fingers (that's what she said).

Tuck the flaps back in, screw in the screws and you're done.

Boomshakalaka! 12GB of ice cold memory.
