    Real time data does get damaged or get interrupted.  Rescues are needed from time to time.  Thankfully not as often these days. Paul Stricklin

  • Paint Shop Pro did work for me after upgrade to win 10 but have upgraded program since then.  My old Epson scanner was still working using the same programs I started with way back around XP.  I ...
  • Initial quick check: auto focus works nicely even in very busy subjects like lots of fine green leaves and one dry one behind or printed tags on distant boat trailers.  Fun challenges: First ...
  • Lens arrived at my office along with rain and gusting cold wind.  Temperatures should drop 20 Degrees in the next 4 hours and the rain should increase.  Going to be fun testing this lens in the ...
  • Quit fighting the updates and let them install at safe times.  No more problems on 1 laptop and 2 work stations, and 1 NAS.  I now keep 2 thumb drive restore sticks and 2 current install sticks on ...
