If you just turn on sync, you shouldn't end up with duplicated images and it's a lot less work than exporting. It is usually that simple. Also you can't access those DNGs directly. So turn sync back on, and investigate where the duplicates - if any - are coming from.

That's right - teaching.  the professors getting higher pay than they would have due to government paid-for student loans.  What do you care. You're British.  You don't have to pay for the taxes required when students don't pay back the loans.  Maybe you can send me a check.

Do you know what chaps my ass? Seniors getting discount meals at restaurants when they eat dinner early. Why should I subsidize their meals? And discount haircuts. Why should I subsidize their haircuts? I mean a lot of them have more hair than I do. Then there are senior discounts at the movie theater. Why should they pay less? Because they sleep through part of the movie? And discount green's fees. What's that about? They are usually high handicappers. More strokes, more divots, higher turf maintenance costs. And then some of them can't bend over to repair their ball marks on the greens. Not to mention discount hotel rates and car rentals. Old people are more likely to wet the bed and have car accidents. The list goes on and on. All those senior discounts. I've got to pay more so they can pay less. What a bunch of freeloaders. Maybe you can send me a check.

And why are seniors getting stimulus checks? They're already getting social security checks. Those haven't stopped or been reduced. And they don't need to buy anything anyway. They're just going to forget where they put it. And they've been buying stuff all of their lives. Let somebody else have a turn for a change. It's just free money for old people. It's double-dipping. And I have to pay taxes to cover it. Maybe you can send me a check for that too.

Our ditzy Republican governor in Iowa finally gave in to the CDC yesterday and opened vaccinations to 65 and older. That added +500k old people to the queue. So on-line sign-ups flooded in this morning.

In typical government idiocy, the sign-up website starts with picking a time slot first, and then proceeds thru 3 more screens of name, addr, phone, and an 18 question health survey. By the time you finish that and "submit", the time slot you picked first is gone! So you have to start over. Don't have to fill everything out again, but you do have to click thru the screens. Took me 3 tries.

And all this after the morning's news says the current vaccines may not be as effective against the new variants.
In NJ where I live, they opened it to everyone over 16 if they have other medical issues.  So you have people 80 years old being passed over by people in their twenties when statistics show in our town that 2/3 of the deaths are people over 65.  What idiot changed the original policy to vaccinate people over 65 first.?  NJ is getting 100,000 doses a week and right now there are 4 million people eligible because of the new policy.  What dopes we have in government. So in order to increase the first-time doses, another dope changed the policy and they're making second doses on reserve into first doses.  Does anyone want to take a side bet there won't be enough second doses to cover the people who already had their first dose?

And free in Cuba.
Free?  They're still living in the 50's driving old Chevy's.  And what do they read in college?  Certainly not anything on western democracy.

You can always cherry pick anything to try make your points. Why not look at medium or average salaries?

I think if you'd look up the 10 highest paid in any profession...I think you'd get the same picture. The damn photographers making huge wages...look at the 10 top earning photographers. Get the picture.
Salaries for instructors and professors have gone up.  But additionally, and not mentioned before, there are many more college teachers and professors than before.  Even more colleges.  More student loans mean more kids going to college.  So keeping those loans going means a lot to the teachers or they'll get laid off.  If it wasn't for these loans, Trump University wouldn't have happened.  You can even get loans for photography schools.  Everyone is jumping on the gravy train.  And millions of kids are into huge debt in their early twenties before they even get started in life.

Many never get any value from it because they aren't college material but were sold a bill of goods, borrowed the money, and then dropped out or completed near the bottom of their class.  They would have been better off becoming a plumber. It just cost me $170 for a half hours work to stop a little leak in my sink.    Then they could have borrowed to buy a house and start a family instead of being stuck with school debt.  Now they can't even afford to buy the engagement ring.

This has been an issue for me for a long time. I've asked a number of experts why it takes so bleepingly long to save my relatively large final master TIFF's (around 1GB). I've tried saving to a hard drive, a RAID, and an SSD and all seem to take distressingly long. I'm nowhere near enough of a computer expert to figure out why.

If someone has either a solution or an explanation, I'd love to hear it.

The oil's going to get shipped regardless.

It depends on the cost of extraction and transportation to the refinery, and the prevailing cost of a barrel of oil.

The annual tuition fees at the top universities run over $50,000 in USA, 9,250 in UK (more for international students), $1,660 in Switzerland, and only 500 in public universities in Germany (more in private universities). Huge difference between USA and Germany.

Your analogy reminds me of the guy who drowned in a lake that had an average depth of 3 feet.

Poor Alan - nobody is sending you any cheques it seems. Where does the money go? Teaching and research?  These figures are available online. Google is your friend.
