  • It's true, Adobe installs CC software with any install now, including LR6 and even the free Bridge, and CC caused me a lot of grief updating from 6.12 to 6.13. I uninstalled CC after that and LR ...
  • Sounds like you're making LR a lot more difficult than you need to. I second the recommendation to read Martin Evening's book on Lightroom. Luckily, I found it free to check out at the library. He ...
  • My guess is that for "pro" work you'll find the options available for Linux somewhat lacking. Not that Linux software can't do the job but my experience has been that it requires more work ...
  • Sounds like Investor reassurances. How many years was it before we knew about the Yahoo hack(s)? Different thing, I know, but we aren't getting anywhere near the whole (true) story, ever, about ...
  • That's good news, I guess. That the latest patches are initially 'turned off' due to major performance hits is not good news. Looks like it boils down maintaining the performance speed of a young ...
  • Just for reference - installed GIMP 2.10 just now and it's pretty snappy on my 1+ year-old laptop w/integrated Intel HD 620 graphics. Was using 2.9RC without issue but 2.10 seems to have finally ...
  • On second thought (despite what Linus might think) with the emerging tools available to 'researchers', hackers, etc, there is no hardware or software that can stand up to intense scrutiny for ...
  • Me too, should be entertaining. And not only that, it turns out the old Meltdown/Spectre patches already have a workaround for any Win 10 users not updated to 1804. https://www.techrepublic.com/art ...
  • Yeah, I wondered if I'd been overly pessimistic regarding Spectre, was hoping so actually, but there have been scattered reports here and there that indicated further trouble was looming. Now it ...
  • Replied in simplify
    Neither DT, RT nor GIMP would be called 'intuitively obvious' from a user perspective, and I had to dig into the User Manuals extensively when giving them a serious tryout a couple years ago (for ...
  • By checking Windows Update, 1803 started downloading right away. It seemed to hang during download, then restarted itself and finally completed without issue. First I deleted the Edge shortcut it ...
  • My upload speeds are around 6 Mbps too but downloads are glacial compared to yours. Cable's not available here so I guess it's time to move. ;-) Good to hear you got things sorted out.
  • Wow, my DSL WIFI out here in the country was capped at 3Mbps but was recently upgraded to 10 Mbps. My phone peaks around 22 Mbps off a nearby cell tower. It seems pretty quick but compared to your ...
  • For reference, my Kaby Lake system came with Win 10 and last year I got at least one BIOS update through HP support Assisitant, along with a couple other minor patches along the way. You make a ...
  • Yeah, same discontinuity here between HP Sup Asst and what's available on their support page. SA doesn't seem to be doing the job anymore which is why I might be ditching it. As mentioned above, ...
  • Good point about the firmware. I've gotten one firmware update from HP last year, through their installed system tools, but not much else. It could well have been that update that solved things ...
  • Had the same issue with the HP Envy x360 I bought new in Jan 2017, with a 2TB Seagate, and a 2TB Toshiba external USB 3 drive. Sometimes (usually) one or the other would not go to sleep with the ...
  • There is lot of 'dumping' of photos on Flickr but participation in Flickr discussion forums has been dying for a long time. In contrast, discussion here on DPR remains strong. Smugmug is saying ...
  • Here too...no sign of 1803 yet.
  • Instead of going right to 10.13.4, I made the bootable jump drive with 10.13, did the fresh install, then used the cumulative update to bring my iMac up to 10.13.4. It took awhile of course but ...
