  • Dell's system analyzer didn't recommend updating the BIOS. It did recommend installing five drivers. I didn't upgrade the BIOS initially because I was going under the assumption that Dell knew ...
  • Thanks, Jim.  I went to the drivers page you linked and let it auto-analyze the system.  It suggested five drivers (one is a video driver.)  I'm in the process of installing them.  If the ...
  • The screen on this computer looks normal while it is booting, but looks like this after it finishes booting: Not shown is that there is a wormy beating pattern when it is in this mode. Here is a ...
  • I missed that date when I was looking at that screen.  Last January my drive C: was still a spinner.  It was right after that when I cloned drive C: onto a SSD. I still don't know why it hadn't run ...
  • I have two SSDs and three spinners. (I just added the 2nd SSD yesterday.) I thought that I had Windows's Task Scheduler set up to defrag the spinners and ignore the SSDs, but when I went to Task ...
  • The process has lots of complications. It should be possible to abstract a lot of the complications away, but this remains elusive. Because there is so much DIY involved. The Xtend-a-Slide with my ...
  • Yes there is a fair level of interest. I've been working on this for a long time. (1) I didn't know about the importance of UniWB. What you've said makes sense. I'll withdraw anything I've said about ...
  • Well, I'm biased because of Dupliscopes being used to discredit camera scanning on other forums Reading variations of "Why do you think so many people want to get rid of them on eBay?  Better to ...
  • This is one reason for needing an adjustable length tube. I scan full size 35mm, half frame 35mm, and 110 Instamatic. 1:1 on a crop camera that is APS-C, so my EF-S 60mm lens on a crop 60D can ...
  • My camera + macro lens + Xtend-a-Slide is mounted on a tripod. The negative/slide is mounted at the front of the Xtend-a-Slide. I use CFLs mounted in a softbox for illumination (because I've found ...
  • I use a Canon 60D crop body and the EF-S 60mm macro lens works very well. Can you define "easily"? For somebody that has no experience with CAD software. I use a Photosolve Xtend-a-Slide which has ...
  • Yes. The # 3202 Full Blue CTB Color Conversion tungsten to daylight filter is a good start. Except... I've done a lot of camera scanning.  When I started, I had exactly the same thought: it would ...
  • Replied in RAPID mode
    Because I'd like to know exactly what it is doing.  I'm assuming that it is doing some kind of RAM caching.  Windows also does RAM caching.  I'd rather that any RAM that is used for caching disk ...
  • No.  The Samsung's own specs for the 540 EVO are 540 MB/s read, 520 MB/s write, so a speed rating like 5,975 MB/s  (over ten times faster!) is pure fantasy.   AFAIK, RAPID mode is RAM caching, so ...
  • I've been wondering how much slack GoDaddy cuts you with their definition of "unlimited". When I first signed up with GoDaddy they claimed something to the effect of "Our plans offer unlimited ...
  • Thanks for the update. I waited a while after reading this to see if there were any reports of problems. I didn't see any problems reports so I ran the fix earlier this afternoon. It looks like it ...
  • Is this the main limitation of "jailed"? That you can't compile and install binary programs?  This is, I think, the main limitation with GoDaddy's shell access.  I can't compile and install new ...
  • Replied in GoDaddy...
    I'm on Road Runner. I haven't checked the TOS recently. Back in the early days of RR (when routers started at $2,000) I used a spare 486 machine with two NICs configured as a router, running (I ...
  • Do you need a shell? I inherited a web site several months ago and was shocked to find that the ISP didn't allow SSHing into a shell. Everything was done with a web interface and FTP was the only ...
  • Replied in Details
    We are straining at gnats here but the topic subject is comparing the 6D with the 60D, so I submit that Canon has tweaked how sensors behave so that the noise of more recent sensors (6D, 7D, ...
