A while back I was discussing with friends the different software and hardware solutions I use to do my job. One of them suggested I write-up something that they could just read through, because explaining and discussing all of the pieces in person was taking a lot of time, I was going into a lot of detail, and they would just forget. Well, here you go.
A few months ago I wrote a grant to attain funds to purchase a mid-range Mac-Pro. The primary purpose of this machine was to provide a powerful development and testing platform for custom dashboard software, as well as a machine that could be dedicated to developing and renovating existing disaster recovery processes, including system backups.
