  • Thanks Jim, My wife seems happy with the Asus on Mint v13. I have her pink Sony using Linux Lite v 2.0. I'm waiting to see which she finds easiest to use. At the moment the desktop is only showing ...
  • Thanks. I had not thought of shoot horizontally . I realised the ceiling was a problem and I have a good black backdrop. Yes. Steady light is totally viable as a tripod will be part of the equation ...
  • Thanks, I might give it a try later today - but make sure I have a recovery point set (in case!!). Tony
  • I'm following this thread as I have set up a Linux Lite laptop for my wife. I'd like to try these assorted suggestions but am reluctant to keep borrowing the laptop from her desk. My machine is ...
  • Thanks but I think that the vacuum table is beyond me. Good to hear the Sigma's will do the job. Tony
  • As you are planning to use 'heavy glass' I assume you will have the documents on the floor. What sort of tripod or other support do you plan to use? I have a Benbo which will put the camera over ...
  • Replied in My take...
    I'd forgotten that you want three photographers to be connected to your PC. Eye-Fi is probably not a solution as your PC needs to be monitoring a camera all the time so it knows when to accept a ...
  • Created questions Plans and deeds
    I have been co-opted into a team doing research on a social club that will have been founded 150 years ago in 2019. The key researcher has got the original deeds. There are many as the club bought ...
  • And, of course, Jim was right! The SSD was easy to fit into the Sony. Three sets of screws. I can manage that! I'd checked to see that the Sony supported PAE and tried, before I changed the HDD for ...
  • An eye-fi would work, but based on my experience, you are talking maybe a 3-5 minute lag before they show up on the PC. (Unless the latest generation has significantly improved) My jpgs show up ...
  • Thanks Folk. Sound advice. I reckon we can regard this thread as 'Answered'. Tony
  • Thanks Steve, "Check that the connectors match what you have in the laptop though before buying." Tricky to do with most mail order vendors. Crucial are currently ignoring my email that contained ...
  • Created questions SSD for an old Asus laptop
    I'm currently fitting an SSD into a relatively new Sony. Yes, I know there are folk around here that reckon it is putting new wine into old bottles but... If it works I will be looking at my Asus ...
  • Update. We are seeing how comfortable my wife is using the Asus S5000 and Mint. She prefers the larger screen. She has yet to come to terms with the different keyboard. The machine takes up a bit ...
  • Thanks Jim, Interesting but a day too late. I managed to get Mint 13 XFCE running late on Saturday, having started on Friday lunchtime. All my wife needs is Foxpro and Thunderbird. I even managed ...
  • Or this:- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.koushikdutta.backup&hl=en_GB As you say it is remembering to do it which is the challenge Tony
  • Update. I have got Mint 13 XFCE running on the old Asus. 13 Cinnamon would not work as it needed something called x.org and claimed I had not got it. The Linux crew, if they are not already too ...
  • Tried all three of those suggestions. Trouble is TaskManager does not show precisely what is behind some of those readings. I get the impression it is MSE and Windows with their obsession with ...
  • Me again. My wife is complaining that her Sony laptop is slow these days. Too much disk activity and it is killing the use of Thunderbird. It is Windows 7 and I cannot find what to uninstall to ...
