Ho72's recent activity

  • Agreed. If I'm locked out because I block ads I will go elsewhere. I usually contact the site, explain why my adblocker will remain active and then remind them that they need me way more than I ...
  • I turn on System Restore about twice a year and leave it on until Windows runs an optimization on my SSD, then I turn it off again. I guess I could leave it on but I rely on system imaging ...
  • A write-in for Opera. It pioneered many features that were ultimately copied by others. Admittedly it's not the same uber-customizable browser it once was. It may be time to look at Vivaldi ...
  • I may have overlooked what software you're using, but I'm assuming Lightroom. Things may have changed, but LR could inexplicably be a real dog performance-wise on some computers but not on other, ...
  • Not sure that it's relevant, but at the time I had to make a choice DROBO was getting slammed for reliability and support issues so I went with QNAP. No regrets.
  • I think your event photos are exceptional (didn't view anything else). I agree with the others about the load times. A recent study says the average attention span is 8 seconds, and that's for ...
  • And from the present , yet another attack sprung from malicious ads delivered through legitimate ad networks and displayed on legitimate websites.
  • As long as ads remain a vector for malware, including ads on "trusted" sites, I'll use my blockers. If I can't access content, they can go to hell and I will go elsewhere.
  • I hope that's sarcasm...
  • I hope this pans out since I was a big AMD fan back in the (socket 939) day. However, for the past few years AMD's pre-launch claims have tended to be overblown so I think wait and see should be ...
  • Anything that gets printed is output as a jpeg. Clients get  jpegs of selected files if they choose digital delivery. That's it.
  • In order of preference of the types of technology: (1) Online double conversion (2) Line interactive with sine wave output (3) Offline ...
  • I prefer a S&W .45 ACP...
  • I use CS6 most of the  time, still use CS3 because it supports plugins that CS5 and later broke and, finally, I have PS6 (that's pre-CS version 6) installed on a flash drive so I can do quick edits ...
  • 8GB is marginal for PS, especially for pano work. An acquaintance of mine in New Zealand stitches and edits really large images with a machine having 64GB of RAM and he wishes for more. Note that ...
  • I have no experience with their products but I assume the functions will be similar to what I'm using. Reliability is something you should research. Your question about sync should be answered in ...
  • I use a simple, 2 bay QNAP with GoodSync software. I use GoodSync because of familiarity —  I owned it prior to receiving the QNAP (a gift from my wife). Good backup software will include ...
  • No, not really. I work with two computers, each with 32GB of RAM. One has an SSD as the system disk and the other has a Raptor as the system disk plus an SSD for scratch and related functions. PS ...
  • https://helpx.adobe.com/photoshop/using/adobe-dng-converter.html
  • I have a single LR catalog which I imported into C1. I continue to import images into LR and then update the C1 catalog so the images are always present in both pieces of software. I don't do much ...
