  • Hopefully the fictional sample info below can help clarify things. Apologies for placing it in image files but I was afraid the forum’s formatting capabilities might not work with something like ...
  • It's a race between 1803 & Ubuntu 18.04 on the 26th. :-)
  • I would suggest asking over in the Digital Video Talk forum. There seems to be a fair number of Sony shooters there. Just be sure to specify you're looking for a player for Windows.
  • Neither Photoshop CC nor Lightroom Classic CC, the two primary applications of the Adobe Creative Cloud Photography plan, require you to keep your images or your instances of the software on ...
  • Two additional things you can double check in Photoshop: 1) Verify that you don’t accidentally have proof colors active. No check mark next to View -> Proof Colors 2) Verify that Photoshop is using ...
  • Out of curiosity, do you get the same behavior if smart objects aren’t involved? I only ask because they seem to be involved in both of the examples you posted.
  • A down side I can see to dual booting is the potential risk of having to play the “who’s boot manager wins” game. Not insurmountable by any means but something that would have me nervous with the ...
  • Thanks for the heads up on FF 60. IIRC DNSSEC is more analogous to digital signatures for DNS information rather than encryption of DNS transactions as they traverse between client and server. I ...
  • Glad to hear you eventually made it through your day OK. For those with additional interest about encrypted DNS, I've linked a couple of additional Cloudflare pages below which contain more ...
  • Within your post, you refer to the 1.1.1.1 service as an encrypted DNS service. The Cloudflare blog page you linked sates that 1.1.1.1 supports DNS-over-TLS and DNS-over-HTTPS. However, the ...
  • You might want to look into Microsoft’s usbview.exe tool. If I recall correctly, it’s actually a diagnostic tool intended for people writing device drivers but you can download it for free as part ...
  • If you look at the test results table on the page you can see that the “HDR Sustained x% Window” tests show pretty much exactly what you mentioned. The larger the area of the screen, the lower the ...
  • There’s also still the issue of inconsistent peak brightness that I mentioned in the early days of this thread. Admittedly, my original concern about HDR displays holding their brightness over ...
  • I would guess that Synology is simply recommending what they feel is the best option for your criteria from their own product line. While you obviously need disks to have a functional NAS, any ...
  • Just an FYI if you’re used to a current generation Apple keyboard from the last several years. The size of the keycap striking surface on a majority of mechanical keyboards is measurably smaller ...
  • Seconding what tkbslc stated. You don’t need anything other than the standard Lightning to USB cable and the password to unlock the phone and grant access to the PC. The phone should present ...
  • Maybe I’m missing something, but what incentive is there for a storage controller (hardware or software) to conduct any sort of block offsets or logical/physical translations for a RAID 1 volume? ...
  • I’m reasonably sure the Win 10 File History feature should not be considered as a means of full backup. I believe it is more or less intended as a way to recover from “Ooops! I just accidentally ...
  • Interesting. Thanks for mentioning this. It looks like Windows Imaging Component (WIC) and Direct2D (D2D) are ready and capable of delivering HDR still imaging. We just need file format standards, ...
  • I could be mistaken, but I believe the “System created Windows Error Reporting” choice in Windows Disk Cleanup is associated with the settings found at: Control Panel > System > Advanced > Startup ...
