So now I have my WD Passport plugged into my Pi and sharing the image backups over SMB to my wife’s windows machine because Windows WD Security wants to set a paswd etc before use. So dumb.

Linux it just works like a normal drive. 🤷‍♂️

OMG.

It’s like the dumpster fire that is windows, has somehow gotten less usable in the time I’ve been using Linux. 🤦🏻‍♂️

My laptop died (hardware cpu blink code) so I put in the original ssd and dropped it for repair.

Of course, it died the evening someone at a motorsport event the last weekend contacted me to purchase an image of their car...

I somehow got granted a media pass at a motorsport circuit this weekend 😳

Luckily I’m not actually shooting for any media outlet, but I actually feel pressure to get decent shots now...

TFW you export your 24MB raw files to Profoto RGB TIFF files for stitching, and realise the individual files are 277MB 😯

"I’m selling $25bn of advertising a year," Karmazin said. "Why would I want anyone to know what works and what doesn’t?"

Leaning on the table, hands folded, he gazed at his hosts and told them: "You’re fucking with the magic."

At this stage, I think Bernie Sanders is by far the best option for the future of the USA, it's self respect, and the respect of the rest of the world. We need a leader with an iron-clad grasp of the principles s/he stands for, the ability to communicate those values, and a compelling record of refusing to compromise them.

I have a TikTok account because I don’t only want the USA to have my data.
I think it’s only fair to make sure it also goes to China.

I've been playing with doing my again 🤔
I need something to stick on car/motocross shots, which I think this will be fine for.
Longer term... 🤷

I think it's a little sad that Star Trek has become dark and gritty, not because that's an inherently bad thing, but because *everything* is dark and gritty now. Star Trek was one of the few shows I and my parents could enjoy watching together, and that's not really a thing anymore. All media is either explicitly for children or explicitly for adults. I don't think kids hearing an occasional F-word is going to hurt them, but repetition of messages over time is what shapes the way kids think.
