I have repaired or replaced dozens of automobile CD players and dozens of computer CD/DVD players for people over the years due to stick-on labels coming off in the player.

I use an Epson for CD/DVD printing as well and wish they would come out with en ECO model that would print CD/DVDs.

There are over 50,000 Grizzly Bears in North America, not 2,000. The 2,000 figure is for the lower 48 United States.

Last time I went to an amusement park, I took my phone and a Sony RX-10IV. Next time I will take my phone and a Sony RX100VII. The 600 mm was not really needed but the phone definitely does not cut it on moving rides and people in low light.

My wife uses Moment lenses for her iPhone and they give decent results. You have to buy one of their cases for your phone that their lenses attach to. We tried a less expensive clip-on lens that did not give good results.

Microcenter typically limits their best sale prices to in-store only in hopes that you will come in and buy more than the sale item you wanted.

I connected the original C drive SSD. Disk Management first and MiniTool Partition Wizard below it. In both images, the installed 1TB drive is on top and the original 500GB drive is on the bottom.


You need to get a partition moving and resizing tool, if the one you are using won't do moving and resizing. First move the small partition after your main partition to the end of the drive. Then you can resize the main partition to use all the unallocated space.

This didn't use to happen very often but seems most of the tools available now are dumber than they used to be.

I bought an HP Omen 15" with an I7, Nvidia 2070 Super, 32 GB ram, 2TB NVMe SSD because I do a lot of video work and the Dell XPS15 just did not have enough oomph.

The 4k touch screen on the Dell is much better than the 1080p HP screen, but the HP is much faster. Depending on how complex your use of photoshop is, the Dell would work fine.

Makes me hungry. Been too long since I've been to a hog roast.

Yes, you can remove spots and other things in Resolve. There are YouTube videos with instruction on how.

If you ever decide to try it, you probably will never go back to Premiere Elements. Resolve has a better work flow, more intuitive, much more powerful, and the price can't be beat (free.)

Yes, I like it better that Adobe Premiere for most things.

Unfortunately there is a lot of untruth being spread around these days for political gain. Everything from various aspects of the pandemic to the Post Office has been exploited by both sides.

I have relatives and friends in the Postal Service and I used to make some of the sorting equipment they use.

The Postal Service needs a total restructuring. The overly burdensome retirement funding is one problem, but they also have major management and HR issues throughout the organization. There are many people working in the Post Office that are worked half to death while many others do a fraction of the work at the same or higher pay. The timing of this restructuring was not the best, but it does need to happen.

The sorting equipment they are retiring sorts first class mail only, not Ballots or packages. First class mail is less than 50% of what it was 5 years ago. The equipment is simply not needed anymore, yet costs a great deal just to maintain. It is not something you can just turn off and then just turn back on if/when you need it.

Removing little or not used boxes has been happening for years. My own old neighborhood lost our individual mailboxes to a cluster placed at the entrance of the neighborhood over 20 years ago.

Using the Post Office changes as a means to get attention for the terrible way many states are handling voting this year was wrong, but that doesn't mean that just sending out ballots without any way to confirm the correct person gets and uses them is Ok; it is crazy. That also goes for not having to show an ID to vote. You need an ID to get into many buildings, to get State/Federal assistance and many others things that are less important than voting. You can't even sign up your kid for sports or enrol them in school without ID.

The Camera is definitely a great "Jack of all Trades" camera. The IQ is a little less than the D5300 (with good lenses) that I used to use, but the focussing system more than makes up for it with a much higher keeper rate on any kind of action shots.

It's biggest faults are the menu system and the touch screen. The menu system can be overcome with time. The touch screen is dim compared to many others and very limited in it's usefulness as a touch screen. The screen also only flips up and down and not to the side like many of the better ones these days.

In low light and very bright conditions like out on the ocean, the focussing system will sometimes struggle but so do most other cameras.

The ability to have one lens on the camera that goes from 24 to 600 mm with decent IQ and only weighs 2 1/2 lb is amazing. I can do 90+ percent plus of what I want with this camera and that is more than I could do with a $10,000 plus DSLR setup.

I have used Premiere Pro for many years, but started using DaVinci Resolve (the free version) on and off a few years ago. These days I find myself using Resolve most of the time. Resolve is just easier, faster and better at most of the things I do. I am considering downgrading my Adobe CC subscription down to Photoshop and Lightroom only.

The Biggest strength of Premiere Pro is its tighter integration with other powerful Adobe tools like Audition and After Effects. However, with my work flow, the more basic tools that are part of Resolve usually fill my needs. The few times I need more, I can always use third party tools like Audacity to make up for the limitations within Resolve.

I have several people under me who all use Resolve because it is free and they never have an issue with the software not doing what we need them to do.
