About me:

  • Replied in dry eye?
    Sometimes dry eye is caused by a monitor placed to high relative to the head (ergonomics). Even lowering the monitor slightly can improve this. I also use prescription glass specifically calibrated ...
  • Faststone is advertised as a "viewer" and for viewing and moving photos between folders it works very well. Where Faststone fails is editing keywords. It has a screen that allows you to "edit" ...
  • Another boutique: Digital Storm I bought two systems from them that I've been very happy with, both overclocked and water cooled. Very fast.
  • It seem like they are not lowering prices on their SMR drives, so, you are not getting more storage for your dollar, they are getting more profit.
  • I was about to buy a WD 12TB UltraStar (Helium) when I read this article. Now I'm not sure what I'd be getting from Amazon. Amazon's prices for 10TB & 12TB have be in great flux for a couple of ...

  • If it were me, I'd backup my pics first. Then I'd wade through the exiftool documentation because it is very likely they have a command line option for that.
  • Which builder did you have problems with?
  • I've had two machines built by Digital Storm and I've been very happy with both. There web site is very friendly for putting together what-if virtual builds to see how much they'd cost. I've ...
  • I had smaller requirements and was using free dropbox until they limited the number of computers to 2, I needed 3. Now I use QSYNC hosted on my QNAP NAS and only use dropbox for a handful of files ...
  • ....or work....or friend....or trusted neighbor
