Rob.. yet again you have hait the nail on the proverbial head. Why on earth does any cultural institution waste time and money trying to contribute to our knowledge and understanding? In fact, come to think of it, what use is knowledge and understanding at all? I'd be interested in reading your opinions on the waste of time and money which our universities are responsible for. Time to put these money grabbing, unassessed cultual elitists in their place I think.  Rob, you are just the man to do it as you seem ideally suited.

Nelson, I blush at these plaudits!

It might be difficult as I'm not of the USA, but look, there seems to be a little vacancy in the legal department right now due to a younger man passing on to other duties in that greater court in the sky; if you could manage to generate some votes for me... after all, I do have Italian blood somewhere in my veins, so it could always be presented as continuity, making Conservatives happy if confused, and Republicans wistful for what they threw away - just as the the rebelling French with their mechanical, sliding axes which, I'm reliably informed, was the science upon which Otis built his fortune.

I sense we can go places together, you and I!

Phew! Consensus there most certainly is not!  ::)

For the record, with my current PC laptop (running Vista) with the Firewire express card, will run the camera in multi-shot mode via mains or battery. The camera is also battery powered.

I want to be able to use the current version of Phocus, which will not run on Vista.

I should probably look into whether or not a more recent version of Windows (which CAN run the most recent version of Phocus) will run on this laptop.

That said, it's useful to know that Lenovo are still making laptops with Firewire ports.

I haven't had a chance to speak to my dealer, so I'm still awaiting a definite answer on the issue of whether or not this model of camera will be powered by a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter. But, it's also useful to know that a 2012 Macbook Pro, with its Firewire port, does the job.

Here's a thought to avoid all these arguents. You could have two categories in photo competitions.

Category 1 (for Photographers.)
 I took the photograph and I submitted it.
Category 2 (for Artists) 
I took the photograpgh and then I added stuff or mabe I stitched several photgraphs together , Oh, maybe I also added something that wasn't there in the original photograph. Oh I forgot to say I also had a brilliant moon shot I took in 2003 and I thought it would look great if I added it to my entry. Oh and I didn't like the color of the grass so I changed it and the rocks didnt look pink enough in the sunset  so I made them pink rather than their real colour. Oh and I nearly forgot the water wasnt milky white the way I Like it so I sorted that out as well.

Nelson, these are wonderful ideas that you propose: I'm surprised that nobody thought of them before!

What would art be if it were nothing more than a mirror to the moment? At least a cracked mirror may introduce some magic, even if at the risk of seven leaner years which, come to think of it, no true artist would really notice as being any the more lean than one of the others...

There's nothing like a knowledgeable persn to put those ignorant scientists in their place. Imagine wasting all that time and money on actually trying to do a scientific experiment when they could just have written an unsunstantiated opinion on some forum, or even better, as you point out, falsify the result in front of the whole world.  For, goodness sake, let the real experts have a say on this. Keep it up Rob. Those money grabbing self-serving scientists need a dose of reality from people like you who obviously know what they are talking about.

Thank you Nelson; I had to reach the tender age of 107 to have the confidence in myself to know all of this as truth! I'm thrilled that the knowledge now extends to a younger person like yourself! Don't let it slip away, as it so easily can, what with being subverted from the left and the right as both sides try to gain populist clout and executive power.

But the fight isn't over: today, drinking my first mug of breakfast tea, I managed to deposit some of it onto my lap: Sky News ran a spot on a gentleman who is now selling bottles of fresh air! His argumant was delightfully clear - just like the air - I spilled the tea in anger at not having had the guts to promote that self-same idea years ago when it first struck me as a convenient adjunct to my reglar job selling dreams on celluloid. That's the problem with linear thinking: it can lead right over cliffs, one good reason not to work on foggy days.

The world belongs to us - let us seize it in both hands and choke the hell out of it!

see if Yongnau makes triggers for Sony. There are other brands that might make it (?) do some searching with ETTL trigger, transmitter, transceiver, receiver, etc...for Sony..

Hi, All of a sudden my 11880 start printing with everything with reddish color cast; everything has been checked, profile, OS, different papers, deferent computers, all are okay just every print I get is a little reddish. Moving white balance slider in LR to green helps a little but still I have red cast all over. Even in Epson Advance B%W, it is a little nasty red! Checking the nasals all are okay and have perfect pattern. I believe there should be something wrong with printer itself internal software or motherboard programs. Any help everybody?!

what is causing the problem BackBlaze or Adobe CC?

According to TidBits, it's the Adobe CC installer, which deletes data from the first (alphabetically) hidden folder. BackBlaze creates a hidden folder called .bzvol, which is the one that gets tampered with.

Edit: see also BackBlaze's response, here.
