It's doing my head in, I can't keep up with the damned thing!
I'm an editor and also shoot freelance gigs. When I'm working from home I don't take breaks, instead I just leave the desk whenever somethings loading. If some footage is rendering, I'll grab a sandwich. If it's uploading, I might even go out for a walk.
Great system right?
I recently upgraded to a blazingly fast SSD (a set up that you can see here), and now Mavericks. This, coupled with my internet connection being bumped up to fibre means that I can't even make a cup of tea any more.
Moral of the story: Maybe I shouldn't have tried to hack/fix/upgrade what was working in the first place.. huh.
