I'm not going to say it's all weeping, or thrashing about, sometimes, there is humor involved. I had a questionnaire thing to fill out. They were all multiple choice, three choices. Never, sometimes, and always. I got to one of the questions, and none of them actually fit. So, I... Continue reading
Beside the constant "You do not have permission to view this fold. Click here to have permanent permission" even with the UAC set to the lowest it can go, I have found interesting things. Make sure you have your wireless/blue tooth tablet already powered up before starting ANY graphics program,... Continue reading

After a session with a Microsoft Tech regarding not being able to see camera raw files from specific cameras (Olympus OMD EM1mkII and EM5mkII, and Canon 5DmkIV) I was told it was a Canon issue and to contact Canon for 'the fix'. Three guesses what I got in response... and... Continue reading

It might not seem like such a big thing, but it seems you can't view thumbnails of some camera raw files in Windows 10 Windows Explorer. It become a problem because many photo editing programs rely on the native Windows Explorer to select images (example, Affinity, Luminar, Aurora HDR all... Continue reading

Proof that the previous version is more versatile for me. Now I know so many people whined about Luminar having no Digital Asset Management, but that was never an issue with me. I would always make folders on the day, by category etc etc. Don't get me wrong, Luminar 3... Continue reading

I have been using Cyberfox in place of Firefox for years. I wanted to check to see if there was an update, only to keep getting errors trying to get the the website. With a bit of Google research, I found out that the programmer of Cyberfox, due to illness,... Continue reading

I'm trying to get into it, I really am. But it's more stressful than cheerful. I miss being around family. I know I have Wing and Alan here, but there's Paul and the children, my cousin Mark, Marilyn and Rob... I miss my Aunt Elnore, and Uncle Al. I probably... Continue reading

I had a good long talk to my GP regarding my upcoming MHTP. Baring's one soul and life is an exhausting process. I had Wing there, with the pre-warning to NOT take any of it personally. After explaining childhood, and how I was treated and raised, it was surprising I'm... Continue reading

And experimenting with different programs, I have managed to boot back into Windows 7. I will have to go back into the bios and make sure that the NEW boot configuration is selected. Now, I will be deactivating certain programs on Win 7, so they can be installed on the... Continue reading

Alan's phone was dying, it was also a waste of money to spend on portable Wifi devices, and Wing ‘s phone and my devices were out of contract. Went to Telstra Shop in Garden City, and it was quiet. Got seen to right away. Wing's phone had ownership changed to... Continue reading

After a lengthy discussion, and some pointed questions, a course of action has been set up. As it's not the brain, but nerve pain, I don't have to ditch other medication, but it will be shelved for a while. For now, I am on a regimen of Lorazepam and magnesium.... Continue reading

About two weeks ago, I woke up with what I thought was just a bad cramp/charley horse, from my right foot, straight up to my right hand. The pain was intense. My foot arced and the toes curled, and my fingers dug into the palm of my hands. As I... Continue reading

The biggest issue right now, is the smoke from controlled burn offs making my chest all tight, and being short of breath again. Asthma, pnemuonia and smoke.. not a great combination. After three visits with the physio (ow) and some targeted exercises (again, ow) I have been slowing getting back... Continue reading

I was signing into Mount Hospital, to have a total knee replacement. I was scared, worried, almost in tears, but knew it had to be done. The recovery has been a bit of ups and downs. Doing too much one day, then taking a week to get over it. Restless... Continue reading

Saw Matt the Physiotherapist aka Torturer today. He confirmed diagnosis of tendinopathy. He also agreed that the pain from the healing knee replacement disguised the injury caused by us getting T-Boned and my knees impacting the dashboard. Had some really intense massage and manipulation of the affected area. I called... Continue reading

Knee joint replacement is great. I managed to dodge a bullet when I caught pneumonia, as it's common for infections to spread from one area of the body to the joint replacement area. The acute pain I've been having. Mr S said that since I was still experiencing pain from... Continue reading

Three photoshoot sessions, different locations. Lots of walking, lots of standing in one place. And when I stepped off, the knee really freaking hurt. It could be that it was just too soon after recovering from pneumonia, but I was getting cabin fever. Got some excellent images, though. Was great... Continue reading

I have been using Forte Agent since version 3. Now it's up to version 8. When I had a tech problem with it, I used to be able to submit a ticket, explain everything I had tried, and get good tech support. Last year, the person I suspect was the... Continue reading

The cough wasn't going away. Add being tired all the time, falling asleep sitting up, shortness of breath, breathing shallow, feeling pressure and coughing when laying down. Have to go for chest xray, and blood tests, but Dr A is fairly certain what the result will be. I have atypical... Continue reading

A few weeks ago, I got a Sigma 150-600 Sports. Unfortunately, circumstances kept me from giving this lens the test run I wanted. Well, today, I got to mount it on my 7DmkII. First off; the Sigma 150-600 is a beast of a lens. It’s heavy. And unless you’re used... Continue reading

Since I have already done all the troubleshooting (different port, different cable, different computer, and even trying a different tablet) my Intuos Pro 5s' USB charge port needs to be replaced. Hoping it will be less expensive than getting a new tablet! Also, found out I can get a new... Continue reading

Even though it has scratches (compliments of Wing 's cat, Ziggy) I kept the old tablet when I replaced it. A good thing, too, because for some bizarre reason, the new one, after almost a year of using, isn't charging up, nor is it recognized by Windows when plugged in... Continue reading

For some bizarre reason, that borders on Trumpian logic, Facebook has decided that WordPress blog posts can no longer auto-shared with my Facebook profile. BUT if I made a business page, it can be auto posted there. Uhh, no, my profile page is not a business or organization page. Then,... Continue reading
