But they won't support their products if you were unfortunate enough to buy them. During the 'Hard drive Disasters' of a few months ago, Seagate sent me back a replacement hard drive without the enclosure (that's another story of crappy support, but I digress), so I ordered one from PC...

Test results: It still works wonderfully, with a few issues. As this is a BetaTesting phace, issues and bugs are expected. Cameras used - Canon 5D3, Canon 7D2 HDR exposures - Perfect Long Exposure - Perfect Time Lapse - Function perfect, but with a bug Single Exposure - Function perfect,... Continue reading

And I am annoyed. Wing and I went to Snooze to get a new mattress for Alan, as he has springs coming out of it. We ordered it and were told it would be delivered on Thursday, today. So, I waited around today, blowing off a photoshoot in Fremantle. I... Continue reading

You would think after all these years, either company would have fixed the damned problem of Wacom drivers not loading on boot up, and a quick easy way to load the drivers when you get the dreaded "TABLET DRIVER NOT FOUND" (yes, I have already done the Services/Local Services/Stopped and...

I periodically check bookmarks/links to see if they are still 'live'. One of the sites I visited had MalWareBytes web protection block it. I have it, on occasion, wrongly block a site, so I 'whitelisted' the site, and reloaded it. What I got was a rather official looking Microsoft page... Continue reading

I decided to try out Trillian IM on web browser. Facebook threw a shit-fit, and not only logged me out, but forced me to change my password AGAIN (just did it last month because I dared to login on my friggin' laptop instead of desktop) even though I did verify... Continue reading

After the crap we went through with the last clique-y camera club, including the president of it showing up at my door, uninvited, to threaten and intimidate me, threatening me with public humiliation by expelling us during a club meeting unless we voluntarily quit. So, oddly enough, the last thing... Continue reading

My S7 has a glitch, a known one, without one apparent cause or cure. It also affects S7 Edge. The phone will turn the lock screen on all by itself. After a few seconds it will shut off. And this glitch is rather draining on the battery life. I have... Continue reading

Earlier this year, I bought a CD (used) on Amazon, as it was listed in "VERY GOOD" condition. 1: It was flagged by AQIS, opened, inspected, foreign substance on outside of the CD case tested. 2: The CD playing surface was covered in dings and scratches. 3: Piss poorly packed,... Continue reading

Ever since I got the new motherboard and CPU installed, got the computer back up and running, I have been hammering away at little things. Soundblaster Wireless headset not working - Alan and I kept working on it, no joy. So I bought a new wired headset, but before tossing... Continue reading

And reading a bit more, I figured I would play around some more to get the old bluetooth dongle to work. I followed on help site, but Windows kept trying to install many "Bluetooth Peripheral Devices".. over and over. So, instead of trying to find hardware specific driver, I found... Continue reading

If you make laws regarding guns, only law abiding gun owners would adhere to them. Criminal won't. You can use this (non)logic in regards to any and all laws. Drunk driving is illegal, the majority of people follow the law. A few don't. Does that mean you strike the law... Continue reading

I spotted this bit of artwork on the face of a single brick in a local carpark/parking structure, and I am glad I took photo of it as the wall it was decorating was hit by a car, and all the bricks were taken out and replaced. I have no... Continue reading

I have been testing the beta version of the Pulse camera remote. And with the exception of a few things, I haven't found anything not to like. Started off rocky, as mine arrived a bit earlier than expected, and the web page for it with instructions and links to the... Continue reading

Every security program is really bitching about scans/checks/virus definitions being outdated and long overdue. So, between updating those programs, and uninstalling/reinstalling drivers, I have been kept busy (thereby out of trouble.. mostly.) Continue reading

And some more reading, I was able to get the Replacement Replacement Seagate External drive to be visible and accessible. The biggest problem with all versions of Windows from 95 on up to 10, is the error codes or lack thereof can have multiple causes, or none. The fun part... Continue reading

How I have missed you! Let's try not to have another meltdown, ok? Had a bit of a panic when I got NTLDR is missing when I first booted up. Then I remembered, just go into the BIOS and change the boot order. Yay! No more NTLDR... but then I... Continue reading

What's the point of having a kick ass computer, faster than anything you've had, only to have people to make BIOS and hardware controllers throttle things? I kept wondering why my USB 3 drives kept dropping off or not being seen on the powered 7 port USB 3 hub. Turns... Continue reading

Synopsis: I had a under warranty external HD fail. Seagate sent me a replacement. Unfortunately, less than a year later, that one failed too, suddenly. PAYAM data recovery service was able to retrieve the data (turns out the heads failed, but the platters were undamaged). Turns out they had sent... Continue reading

After the Melville council arborist checked the gum tree, it's been decided that it has to go. The whole thing. Damned shame, as that tree was a home, haven, nesting site, photography stage and food supply for hundreds of birds. The council will replant a native nectar bearing trees/shrubs, but...

Yesterday and the day before, we were hit by a severe storm front. Our gorgeous Gum Tree was badly damaged. This tree is (or should I say was) the stage for many of my large bird photographs (Cockatoos, Kookaburras, Galahs) This makes me want to cry: I am hoping that... Continue reading
