I formatted the drive as exFAT. I don't know why other video files - MP4 - copied to FAT32 flash drives, but this wouldn't.
I recently ran into a similar situation with a new SST 500Gb drive.. folders that I copied from my HD showed up with 2 different sizes assigned... the actual folder size and "size on disk", the latter of which ran from 2 to 3 times the actual size. Turns out the SST was formatted exFAT which apparently allocated full blocks to ones which were otherwise partial. After reformatting the SST to NTFS things went back to normal and my files/folders reported actual sizes, not "size on disk". This tidbit turned up on one of the WD forums, as it seems to be most common on WD drives.
I'm 76 and I feel exactly the same way. Change is not always for the better!
Me too... this is like getting rid of the directories on your C: drive.... no folders, just a list of 50,000 files... makes no sense at all.
Is that like standing in front of the open refrigerator and asking yourself "am I hungry or am I thirsty...???"
They have "Amazon Day" delivery now (if you want it) where they'll cut you a break on the shipping if you opt to have multiple orders dropped off the same day. For me it's Wednesdays, but I suspect it may be different in other areas. Not a bad deal.
Great shot! How many miles of rope must there be on that ship??
If I recall correctly, unless you run it from the command line as Administrator I don't think the "normal" format (that appears in the drop-down when selected from the GUI) wipes the rest of the drive, it just erases the index and then checks its integrity. Running it from the command line lets you add switches that will force the writing of zeros to every sector which takes longer but truly eliminates all earlier data, making the drive truly unrecoverable.
Wow, these images really take me back to my childhood. While I didn't spend a lot of time in the camera store, I did spend parts of 4 days a week at Old St. Mary's church, about 7 blocks further south, singing in the Paulist Choir from when I was aged 9 thru 13. On Saturdays, after rehearsals were finished about noon, I'd roam the Loop, spending lots of time at the museums in Grant Park, and many of the stores along Wabash and elsewhere, especially Lyon & Healy, a great music store, around 400 S Wabash if memory serves. Seems like a lifetime ago (which it kinda is.....) Thanks for sharing the great photos / memory joggers.
I watched that Beato video when he posted it. Rick had done a video on Jeff a few months ago that’s also worth watching.
I saw that when it came out, going to watch it again. Rick has certainly created an amazing channel.. I really enjoy the live interviews (not to mention the part-by-part analyses he does with ProTools)... particularly notable were the ones that featured Larry Carlton (wow!), Pat Metheny (wow! again) and Tommy Emmanuel (holy moly!!!). That's not to take away from any of the others, as they've all been excellent.
I’m aware of all those guys! Sklar has played on lots of artists’ albums and toured with many. Jan Hammer is another very busy session player. He preceded Jason Rebello in Jeff’s line-up.
Probably the most prolific session players were/are “The Swampers” at Muscle Shoals Studio. Their resume of bands and solo artists they supported is wide and deep.
Jeff Beck was one of a kind.
I heard all that!! Speaking of prolific session players, back in the day (70's-80's) it had to be The Section, which I was led to when I started following Lee Sklar. I had all of their albums as well as those of most of the people they backed. I don't recall when my focus went from albums of particular bands over to seeking out individual musicians in the liner notes and picking up the albums by whoever they were working with, but that "tree" started a long time back and allowed me to find some incredible recordings that I otherwise wouldn't have heard.
When it comes to Jeff, though, he had the unique ability to create and then work a phrase in such a way that you'd never tire of his communication. Rick Beato put it really well in his recent video with Tim Pierce honoring Jeff's career when he said (and I'm paraphrasing) "Jeff never bored you with the musical equivalent of 'run-on sentences'." Makes perfect sense when you listen to his playing with that thought in mind. He was an amazing artist who's going to be sadly missed by his millions of fans.
Thanks for the reminder... I recall seeing that video several years back... memorable partly because of Tal's seemingly effortless performance of that bass part, which, to the uninitiated sounds pretty simple, but when you consider the control and strength required to do something like that for an extended period without missing a beat (while wearing a huge smile, no less) the performance is truly quite remarkable. And of course, there's Mr. Beck doing what he's always done best... masterful!! Loved it, adding it to my faves. Thanks again.
....with three great side musicians — drummer Vinnie Colaiuta, bassist Tal Wilkenfeld, and keyboardist, Jason Rebello. Vinnie and Tal comprise one of my favorite Rhythm sections of all time....
Funny how we lock into certain people when we start paying attention to those kinds of things. One of my favorite rhythm sections has been Billy Cobham (drums), Lee Sklar (bass), and Jan Hammer (keyboards)... I know Jeff played with Jan quite a bit, can't recall if he ever worked with Billy & Lee, though. Probably one of my favorite albums of all time is Cobham's "Spectrum" from '72... included Tommy Bolin on guitar who was another of my favorites, but I'd have enjoyed hearing a Beck version of that music. I'm sure it would have been mesmerizing.
.... the time is near when people will not own anything.....
That doesn't count for the criminals in Davos and the lackies of the WEF who will be the people that own EVERYTHING. Thankfully the other 7+ billion of us are finally waking up. Red pill, anyone??
Very saddening... I had all of his pre-80 LPs which were lost in the hurricane Ian flooding... I guess I'm relegated to online digital versions from now on.... sigh......
The battery management circuitry & software in modern cell phones is optimized for LiPo batteries in ways that let the user not have to worry about running the battery down too far and/or overcharging. When you run your phone down to 0% in reality the LiPo is still charged to about 3V. If you don't charge it and let it sit it can go to zero volts over time, but it does take quite awhile... think weeks to months. You won't really know how much below 3V it's gone because to the phone that 3V is zero and it won't even turn on until it comes up to 3.2 or 3.3 volts anyway. On the charging side, LiPos use a two-stage charging method that starts with a constant current, then switches to a constant voltage... the charge controller built into the phone knows what battery is being used so its charge profile is setup specifically for it in order to best maintain its health and longevity. During the process the battery is monitored not only for its charge but its temperature as well... again, all managed by the built-n charging system. In other words, you really shouldn't have to worry about charging or discharging your phone... they're built pretty much for the unwashed masses who mostly couldn't care less about managing how they charge them, they just want to use them for all the things they use them for.
