Upgrade cycle

Here are two photographs from Sunday, and one from Saturday night.

I seem to have stumbled on an upgrade cycle, namely I upgraded iPhoto to version 9.0, and discovered that the new version eats up memory. (I'll make a separate posting about iPhoto 9.0 at some point - it is not all bad.)

Thus, I went ahead and ordered a 4 GB memory stick which would allow 6 GB of main memory in the iMac. Not too bad, as the cost was only 105 euro, and this is something I thought I would do anyway at some point. Having on the iMac six accounts which are in use all at the same time taxes the memory quite a lot.

But still, I don't like to mess with a machine that works. More often than not some other problems appear in a while. Fortunately there is still plenty of space left on the hard disk, so there is one thing less to worry about. - Well, have to see how the memory upgrade goes.
