comment Is my SSD dying?
Well, don't place too much stock in the S.M.A.R.T. output. Make sure you have a backup routine and check the values to see the rate at which they're incrementing. Or call OWC if this happens again.

comment Is there a way to test Postgresql connection from VMware Fusion on a Mac?
The NAT address can change. You may want Bridged anyway. But yes, you'll need to allow whatever address in your postgres access configuration files (and restart the service)

comment How to upgrade Ghostscript to 9.x on CentOS 6.5
You can run an strace on the stalled processes to get some insight into what they're doing. Here are some examples. You may find that there's an external input or output or process issue. I doubt upgrading ghostscript will fix this problem.

I would not recommend replacing ghostscript outside of the distribution version because of the maintainability and upgrade concerns. In this case, it may make more sense to find the root cause of the issue.

Can you go into detail about what's failing with the existing ghostscript?

@CodySmith Yes, you want your VM to have a DHCP address assignment. The screenshot is captured using Command+Shift+4.

@PaddyCarroll Okay... But that's a lot to store on your laptop. Do you have any server-based options available?

Your best option is to take full block-level backups of your Mac.
