  • Where else? Does anyone still buy any tech info for the masses (magazines) printed on paper?
  • Edge gives me a drop down menu to choose where to save a favourite before clicking "Done": If I don't want to use one of the existing locations, I click "More" to make a new one. I find Edge to be ...
  • I just stick with Google. A few years old, but here's a related thread with a response from Simon Joinson :
  • What sort of job "requires" a Z 9? Yep, it's the gear that matters most.
  • Replied in Z 50?
    I believe the D500 & D7500 are the only two Nikon DX DSLR models with a tilting (i.e., non fully articulating) screen. Have you considered the Z 50, which is a MILC, but has a tilting screen? It's ...
  • Replied in Router and DNS
    Ah ha! So you're the guy responsible for those default router passwords, like "admin" or just blank. :-P
  • It's been probably at least several weeks since I've seen that error message, and I don't recall ever seeing it more than once on any given day. Is it possible that the page you are seeing is being ...
  • Maybe something along the same lines as this?: "Canon has filed a new patent application for an in-camera mechanism designed to protect the shutter and image sensor of its mirrorless cameras from ...

    That seems to be the case, per the page I linked: Not sure, though, as I am a very satisfied Aomei Backupper user. 👍
  • Replied in Version 5.2?
    Version 5.2? I'm not a Reflect user, but I suspect running a very old version could cause a problem. The current free version appears to be "Reflect 7 Free", available here: ...
  • Replied in Very likely
    I'm not sure if they fit the definition of "modern DSLR", but there was the Canon D2000 , followed by the 6MP Canon D6000 in 1998 (along with Kodak equivalents):
  • The "Sony Corporation" is not an insurance company. The life insurance business is just one of the many assets owned by the "Sony Corporation".
  • Replied in Avoiding cuts...
    Yes, sharp edges in computer cases can be quite dangerous. I once cut a finger badly with a utility knife, so now I have a pair of lightweight cut resistant gloves I often wear in risky cutting ...
  • The N1 cameras were ILC, but the ill-fated DL models were fixed lens cameras.
  • I've used (and recommended) Defender, along with an occasional scan with Malwarebytes, for years with no apparent issues. As an added precaution, I also check all downloaded executables at VirusTotal .
  • Microsoft's system image backup is deprecated, so no longer updated. MS recommends using a 3rd party product, "We recommend that users use full-disk backup solutions from other vendors". https://do ...
  • Free from both Seagate and WD, as I posted earlier.
  • It's described starting on page 8 of the "Supplementary Firmware Update Manual":
