The Best-laid Plans

Last week the idea of in future posting selections of snaps with hardly any theme appealed to me but after working on this update I’m not so sure. This lot were shot under widely differing lighting conditions and post-processing them was a right pain in the arse. From now on I’m going to be even more picky with the shots I choose to post.

Damn And Blast

Wouldn’t you just know it. Whilst transferring data to the new NAS I’ve had a few of the old hard disk drives fail, the ones with interesting stuff on like many of my home movies. Typically all the boring data is safe along thankfully with my photos which I’ve always held at least 3 copies of. I kept telling myself that the movie archives should be duplicated but I never got around to doing it. One never learns.

One Big Yawn

I’m an expert on boredom, and being boring, but when it comes to transferring data between computer systems even I contemplate suicide. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time over the last week or so moving data from my present set-up/mess to my new NAS and it’s been a mare. I was hoping I could copy it in a few large chucks but that just kept crashing my computer so I’ve had to babysit the process gigabyte by gigabyte. I’ve still got a weeks worth of files to go so if you don’t hear from me again I’ve topped myself.
