Digi Conversion Service

So I'm thinking now might be a good time to flee the abusive indentured servitude that is digidesign usership. Does anyone any suggestions to converting my back catalog of PT files? I have about 700 gigs of sessions.

Why Now?
My G5 Recently went down on me, I've already poured 1500 dollars into repairs, I got it back it crashed right after a fresh OS install. I just found out about the costly Digidesign Crossgrades.

I F E E L S O T R A P P E D

They are just to horrible. MacPro+PCIe crossgrade = $10,000??? to replicate what was working impressively just a month ago?

No.

Buy a barebones G5 and port all of your hardware to it.

Another option is to buy a new computer and an expansion chassis and put your existing system in that...still not cheap, but cheaper than the crossgrade...
