    Hi Jason
    Great to read ur blog.
    I have a quick question I hope you can email me the answer please.
    Just say I dont want to clone my old hard drive, and want to just start afresh with my new one, when i upgrade my white Imac 24inch.

    Do I just put the 10.5 osx disk in after I have done the imac surgery?

    I have only worked on PCs in the past, so this is new ground for me and want to make sure i do it right.

    Hey! I recently built the light box you wrote about on here and I want to thank you as it works worlds better than what I was using! I do have a questio though…some of the item I shoot in it give off a green glow around them, I’m guessing this has to do with the light bulbs?? Could you give me any feedback on this?
    Thanks again!

    Hi Jason!

    Fond your review of the Seagate 500 GB, 7200 RPM harddrive, as was just wondering if you wouldn’t mind sending me a quick email with your thoughts on how it held up over time. Could be as quick as saying “it works” or “it blew up.” Thanks in advance for any help!
