  • Hi mobilejunkie, The way I see it is an average piano player can sound pretty good on a $300,000 piano, and average on a $3,000 one whereas a great piano player will sound spectacular on either ...

    Hi MarshallG, And, I assure you I didn't want my reply to be one that suggested you were. I took you as perfectly up front and honest and I wanted, best I could, to reply in the same vein  ---  ...
  • With all due respect, MarshallG, I think you're in the wrong forum.  The lens you speak about are available for the DSLR Canon sells.  The M line is for those of us ready to leave our 300m 2.8 at ...
  • HI David, Wonderful to hear from you, and for the interesting info on AMA Waterways.  We've got it on our bucket list! Nothing like a game with grandchildren --- although we're just finishing up ...
  • David, I had a look at your site, and for me to advise you on what gear to take, given my dubious skill level and your expert one, would be much like my giving advice to Wayne Gretzky in his prime ...
  • Carey, thank you for this.  Love the way you explain it so even my age challenged brain can 'get it.'  Much appreciated. Sheldon The Restoration Man :-D
  • Hi texasfz8  I'd noticed the same thing, the advice to go to 16GB when my problem is storage.  I've put this down to pilot-thinking.  My wife's cousin flew jumbo passenger jets and he said the ...
  • Thanks, Carey for writing.  Kind of you! On the memory as I understand it the motherboard has slots that are on two sides and requires a match on each side.  So, my 8 gigs of RAM isn't an 8 gig ...
  • Jonny, thank you for all this great information.   I understand the concept, sort of how it works, to have the operating system on a SSD.  I have that on this laptop.  You suggest I also have a ...
  • Lenovo has a site where refurbished 'new' machines are available at reasonable prices, and you might find one on ebay, or a local reputable seller.  The Thinkpads, and in particular the Thinkpad X ...
  • texasfz8  you, and several others have been real princes helping this old guy out and I thank you.  When you are lost and someone comes by and says: go down that road and you'll be home, it may ...
  • Tom and Jim ---  Thanks for the help with the computer back up advice.  This is huge helpful.  I'm going to read the comparisons and I'll be getting a program for sure.  Likely the one Jim ...
  • As we all know, there are computers and then there are computers.  And, within brands, there are keyboards and there are keyboards,  What you'll see at BestBuy, or similar stores is rarely the top ...
  • I write a lot.  Everything from emails to books -- a delightful way to make a living!  So, typing on a good keyboard is important to me.  One that is a joy to use and tough as nails.  I've found ...
  • I'm using Elements 11.  I'll have to check this out.  Thanks. One of the things about my post, and the wonderful answers I've been receiving (thank you all) is it has made me rethink my reluctance ...
  • Hi Jim  ---  nice to meet another Elder, although a younger one!   I must warn you, the 75th, which I cruised through last April, is a shocker to realize you're now closer to 80 than 70.  Then a ...
  • texasfz8  --  Thanks for this.  To copy over all the data I'm assuming I'd leave the C drive, one of the two internal ones (the other is D) that have the 1T of photos on them, and then in an empty ...
  • Thanks, CAcreeks  ... much appreciated, and good idea on the CD.  My problem there is while I love taking photos once they are taken then dealing with them is 'work' and I never seem to have time ...
  • The 'backups' I have are the second 1T drive in the main cabinet, and the 1T drive in the external cabinet which I can store out of the house when I'm away  ---  although, truth be told, I rarely ...
  • Created discussion thread Long Term Photo Storage ?
    Hello dear hearts and gentle people, I am closer to 80 now than 70 and while not a total techno nerd (except to grandchildren, of course) I am challenged. My hard drives are full and I'm wondering ...
