  • <cough Ken Rockwell <cough>
  • If no other cause is found, try resetting ps prefs. This should be a last resort maneuver since it will cause the loss of certain customizations. It's a good idea to keep a prefs backup copy on ...
  • Maybe not the best way to introduce yourself.
  • "Good" is relative. For my use as a general purpose lens I think it acquits itself well. Along the Blue Ridge Parkway 100% crop Could I have done better with a prime and a tripod? Probably. But to ...
  • The 17-55 is a fine piece of glass but a bit quirky. This is a pretty good analysis of its strengths and shortcomings.
  • Live mail started out well, ala XP, but now (Win 8) it tends to have quirks and glitches. It gets the formatting of received mail screwed up and forwarding mail with images is almost guaranteed to ...
  • Full. In hindsight, I wish I had gone ahead and put a little more effort into recovery so that if this ever happens again with important files I'd have the experience under my belt. But, as Sean ...
  • Neither do I, normally. I guess the fact that the files were inconsequential led me to give it a shot. As I said, it worked once before several months ago under a similar scenario, don't remember ...
  • Created discussions CF failed and so did recovery
    Here's the sequence of events: 1. Shot some frames this afternoon (D200, SanDisk Ultra II 4GB card) 2. Chimped a bit, everything seemed normal 3. Popped the card into my Transcend usb 3 reader 4. ...
  • Here's a 100% crop comparison of the Nikon 18-35 @35 vs the Zeiss f2 35, both shot at f8 (D700): Can you tell the difference?
  • Yeah, but these were consumer drives, right? So I think it was a pretty credible performance overall. Well, I hope you get some kind of warning before your drive bricks itself. Yes, as pointed out, ...
  • So it finally ended? I was following this early on, back when some people were still mistakenly avoiding putting things like the pagefile on an SSD for fear of wearing it out. I put my pagefile ...
  • Sorry there was so much drivel mixed in with the useful info.
  • You're wasting your time. Here's the pattern: He makes some outrageous claim and backs it up with something he read on the internet. Someone provides facts that are at odds with his world view, ...
  • Replied in He's TOXIC
    Except for the requotes of his words by others (which I mostly skipped), I've missed out on his abusive, delusional, paranoid, know-it-all comments because he's on my IGNORE list. I suggest for ...
  • ^ Mostly this, especially for certain image files. The time difference in opening a 3.01GB file (the largest sized file I'm currently working on) is minimal when I compare my SSD to my Raptor ...
  • I use an older version of ID that loads up pretty quickly. I quit upgrading since I don't do much press work anymore and the version of ID I have really has all the features I need. Maybe it's ...
  • Sushi is right. Assuming a recent computer with a fast HDD and plenty of RAM, the advantages of an SSD as system disk don't carry the same wow-factor as they do when you drop one in an older, ...
  • Replied in ?????
    Ok, great. Let's give it a rest.
  • Replied in ?????
    Sean, I think Chris is entirely credible but sometimes his typing fingers don't keep up with his brain. :) But thanks for jumping in, sometimes I wonder if the people I'm responding to on DPR are ...
