  • I haven't been able to find Mavericks (from Apple), but you can purchase Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8) at the apple store for $19.99: http://store.apple.com/us/product/D6377Z/A/os-x-mountain-lion
  • It depends upon how much that 1 stop means to you compared to how much $900 means to you. It's a different trade off for everyone. There are other factors to consider, as well... looking at the ...
  • Apple is still putting out security and other updates to Snow Leopard, so I figured I'm still ok... it is the oldest OS they have out there, though, so it will be the next to drop off of the list ...
  • I am getting ready to update my iMac 27 (2010 vintage) to Yosemite and did a quick search on google for "wifi issues yosemite", and the entire page was full of articles about (some) users having ...
  • I I was able to find a complete tutorial for fixing a broken/slipping focus mechanism here: http://www.instructables.com/id/RepairAdjustClean-Canon-17-55mm-f28-Dropped-/?ALLSTEPS I will probably ...
  • You can get by with just the 17-55... But if you are looking for an excuse to buy another lens to bring, I would consider: Either bringing your longer zoom (or getting a higher quality one like a ...
  • Created discussions Canon 17-55 f/2.8 Alternative
    I have had a Canon 17-55 f/2.8 for about 4 years now. It has been, by far, my most used lens since I bought it. Recently while pulling my bag out of the back of my car, I had carelessly not zipped ...
  • Or double the demand from their existing customer base when their customers realize that they should be backing up their data.
  • I'm not sure why you are dismissing IS as not being important and citing your galleries as examples of why you don't need it... there didn't seem to be any shots in there at slower than (1/focal ...
  • If none of the lenses that anyone suggested that you get really pique your interest... you might think about spending the cash on: - A flash (430EXII is pretty good) - A good sturdy tripod ...
  • My opinions of your options/questions... No, not worth the upgrade.  Mine is/was really fragile (subject to damaging the micro-USM mechanism if not treated very carefully). I have the 10-22 and ...
  • It is back focusing.  No, I mean front focusing. Is it too soon to start one of those threads???
  • Replied in Spotting Scope
    Thanks for the replies steelhead and dom... I will probably end up getting the Pentax 80mm scope.  From what I have read, it's better optical quality makes up for some of the advantage that the ...
  • Created discussions Spotting Scope
    I am thinking of getting a spotting scope for viewing things that are about 3 - 4 km away, and be able to recognize their faces at that distance. I'm thinking a Celestron 80mm or 100mm objective ...
  • Well, of that $950 difference $700 is the difference in memory ($200 for the upgrade from 8 to 16GB) and storage ($500 for the upgrade from 512GB to 1TB).  Your initial statement was a comparison ...
  • Replied in Too many cooks

  • Replied in Too many cooks
    If I were a software developer I might care what the answer to that question is, but I'm not.  I'm just a guy who uses both types of computers, and I find that there is more software available for ...
  • Replied in Too many cooks
    I agree wholeheartedly with this complaint about Windows and MS office... it was working fine, but they feel the need to 'improve' it so we all get forced to relearn how to use them.  Not very ...
  • Good point, I don't know either way, but in any case I am glad that he's gone. FWIW, I don't think that he had the self-awareness to figure out that he was causing more harm than good to the forum ...
