The Mini, finally sees all 2 GB of its new RAM

About this MacIt was a struggle, and the Mini almost didn’t make it through the process, but the Intel Mini now sees al 2 GB of its new Techworks RAM from Other World Computing. The problem may not have been bad RAM: the problem may well have been a very small metal tab on the retaining clip on the bottom RAM slot. It had popped out of its small receptacle, which meant one side of the SO DIMM wasn’t being held quite as firmly as the other side.

I noticed this after an hour of switching the new and old SO DIMMs and repeatedly rebooting. Only Slot 0 would show up as good, regardless of which chip was where. It was the last thing I tried before I was going to send both DIMMs back and ask for a refund. Anyway, the LAN project can now progress. Whew

    Hmmm… I didn’t shoot the !!@##$%^ Mini: it’s so small, you’d need a microscope to shoot detail like the tab… I’ve been thinking about a flexible system to capture small detail… it’s very common that modern machinery has miniscule components.

    The Mini is almost impossible for me to deal with… thank providence for young Asian women. I couldn’t assemble 1000s of these things a day, but judging by the sheer miniature beauty of the Mini’s internals, no big deal for them…
