Adding some extra support to the SGI Octane Mod rear panel

Lessons learned: Moving a hardware RAID-5 to multiple software RAID-1 on OS X Lion Server
I've finally been able to complete my move from a hardware RAID-5 setup running OWC Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 to a Hackintosh running OS X Lion Server using multiple RAID-1 sets. The move took about 4 days to complete because I didn't have 4 spare disks (only had 2), so had to move data temporarily to a USB disk.

Modding a SGI Octane to use as a Hackintosh - Part 1 - Cutting out internal supports and fitting a disk cage

Building a Mac Pro Hackintosh - Part 1 - Stripping the case and adding front panel wiring
For a long time I worked on laptops only (my MacBook Pro that I bought in 2009), now that I wasn't travelling so much and had the option of being able to play some games, a desktop seemed like a more attractive option.
