  • Different question. In my post above, I'm referring to the " I don't need to look - I have run an aviation photography competition for over 10 yrs and have published several aviation calendars - ...
  • Replied in Waste of time...
    You'd be wasting your time to have any further with that individual.  He doesn't seem to be open to reconsidering his assumptions.
  • Yes, your post seemed to convey that Amazon themselves offered both prime and non-prime options on items. Over the years I've seen prime prices undercut third party at times and vice versa. I've ...
  • Correct. Certain oversize or hazardous items may be ineligible, and some recipient addresses may be ineligible. https://sellercentral.amazon.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=258855 Different thing. ...
  • Per the listing: " Ships from and sold by Beach Camera Same Day Shipping . " Not shipped from Amazon. You can also see it easily after adding to your cart and then looking at the item in the cart. ...
  • This statement don't really make sense. As I understand it, any products sitting in an Amazon warehouse will have Prime shipping available.  It might be sold by Amazon or it might be available from ...
  • Sorry, I'd read it as "from" DVDs rather than "to". If you're satisfied with the integrity of your DVDs then yes, it seems you have multiple copies. I've had the occasional issue with DVDRs and ...
  • Your 1, 2, 3, is essentially the same as the described 3-2-1 system except that you've added a third local copy with up to a 1-week data loss.  Your offsite backup has up to a six month data loss ...
  • Replied in Eggs and baskets
    Do those old home movies have any value?  Would it be a problem if you lost them? Reason I ask is that your proposed setup would put those at risk of a drive failure.  When the external drive ...
  • RAID1 has it's place. Consider a pro who spends all day editing photos or video - he or she would loose a lot of productivity just in the time to restore a failed drive from backup, particularly ...
  • No, he's actually correct. One of the most basic functions of backup is to allow recovery from accidental file deletion or corruption/overwrite. RAID1 does nothing for that; overwrite the contents ...
  • They've certainly given plenty of notice of sunsetting the service, though for some folks their notice is a bit shorter. e.g. If your subscription had been set to expire today, they extended you ...
  • Cloud backups shouldn't be your only backup in most cases.  They're best used as a disaster recovery solution where you've lost your primary data and your local backups such as in a fire.
  • I shot tons of marching band and winterguard in years past when my kids were in it. It was in the days before I went to m43, I was shooting Canon at the time (APS-C). We had about 140 marching and ...
  • Ah, nice.  Not dissimilar to my setup wherein I use a Synology NAS both as a TimeMachine target for three macs (mini plus my wife's my my laptops) and as base from which I sync my working folders ...
  • In operation, I believe SSD failure rates are lower than HDDs, but I'd be cautious about using them as an archive medium -- particularly if storing them where they can get hot. See this article on ...
  • Any compression used will be lossless. The B2 Cloud Storage service seems like the wrong choice if you're looking for a disaster-recovery solution.  IMHO Cloud Backup is best as a "oh crap my house ...
  • Short answer - coronal structure is associated with the sun's magnetic fields. Long answer - see here: https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/2016/understanding-the-magnetic-sun
  • Congrats.  It's a good camera, I really enjoy mine. Note that Olympus refurb store products come with a 90 day warranty.  If you think you might want to extend it, check B&H for discounted two-year ...
  • How do you feel about South America (Chile/Argentina)?   July 2, 2019 & Dec 20, 2020.  :) Great image, thanks for posting it.
