  • Then the software (and/or user) is doing it wrong. Resizing the image before stitching is absolutely not the way to go here. Maybe try some other software and definitely RTFM (read the fine manual).
  • It was a great little box but, sadly, WD seem to have abandoned it.
  • It's certainly doable but maybe not with regular consumer equipment. It may take commercial grade gear. Directional antennas mounted on the outside of the buildings will go a long way to meeting ...

    If you don't mind command-line programs, it's the best: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
  • For me, price will need to fall dramatically. In fact, I have no interest in 1TB drives at all. That's more than I need for performance critical data. And not nearly enough for my images and ...
  • You're on a very decent track. FWIW, I own two Dell U2412M displays here and am very happy with them. They're not the best but they are very good. Exceptional value at the $300 price point. One is ...
  • Why rush on the video card? The GPU isn't typically a big deal in photo work. Obviously more important if you're gaming or need GPU video encoding. But not for stills. Besides there will be a ...
  • Yes, I use apps for the common things; news, weather, flight info and the like. I think the apps just underscore what a different paradigm it is from the laptop or desktop. But I still need to ...
  • It's not really about pleasing Google. Trust me, they don't give a stuff what you do with your site. The world is going mobile and that's the way it is. Test it with a few mobile devices, of ...
  • Replied in Mini PC
    Yes, but from following their forums, there are still quite a few issues with the older NUC's that have been around for many, many months. The ease with which quite a few users have bricked their ...
  • Replied in Mini PC
    I generally agree with the other posters. Pass on the mini if you want a really fast machine. You're just creating lots of thermal problems and it won't be very cost effective relative to a more ...
  • Intel, Crucial or Samsung are all good. I have one of each and zero problems :-)
  • Yup, I've smacked into this with painful performance copying lots of small files (e.g. a folder full of many thumbnails). Making a ZIP or other archive solves the problem. For those who regularly ...

    In the past, I've had problems with Paypal because they failed to notify the merchant that I had made payment in full. When I called the merchant to find out what happened to the goods, they told ...
  • Forget about the graphics. All of the modern Intel based systems will come with integrated graphics that is more than adequate for the task you describe. As for RAM... you could probably get by ...
  • Obviously, there are some bargains on Ebay. But there are bargains to be found elsewhere too. And there are certainly bargains to be had in China although Ebay is not the only way to grab them ...
  • I think you're probably right despite the fact I was trained to use anti-static precautions. They were required when I worked as an electronics design engineer in the defense industry. I still have ...
  • I don't. Ebay favors sellers, not buyers. But I don't sell on Ebay either. I prefer the commission free CraigsList. I just don't do Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Ebay, ...
  • There you go. I discovered the same highly effective solution to Paypal problems. Just don't use 'em. I found their service to be quite unreliable -- I wouldn't tolerate that level of reliability ...
