After “sorting out” my digital files it’s now time to have another go at the trannies and negatives. Every year I have a mini throwout session but something more serious needs doing. For the purpose of this website many of the glamour photos are unusable for one reason or another so destroying them is the only option. Since the death of my film scanner there’s not much I can do with the rest but I do have a yonks old cheapo contraption for copying trannies which maybe I should give a try on the D810 and see if I can get any decent results.
I’ve finally finished backing up all my important files on to the new Synology NAS. It’s been a long haul and I hope something I won’t ever have to do again. The failure of some of my previous backup hard drives didn’t help but I have luckily managed to recover all but a few of my home movies from the original tapes. I’m sure other things have been lost too but that was always going to happen when you don’t bother to keep track of what is backed up and where.
It’s time for a website change, I’m figuratively moving the sofa to the other side of the room by abolishing the ability to make comments. Although I enjoy your input there are drawbacks, the main one being the huge number of spam entries that have to be weeded out. In future if you want to praise me, diss me, or even send me money you can contact me via the site email address, email@example.com, or comment on my Twitter, @bigearspix, which I intend to utilise to a greater degree.
