How to use Lightroom CC + Still Export Albums in Lightroom Classic CC

Fri, 10 Nov 2017 21:49:07 +0000

I’ve been using Adobe Lightroom since 1.0, and I’ve evolved a workflow that adapts to some of the limitations in both Lightroom and local storage. I use Lightroom for active photo shoots only, meaning that being able to archive my albums is critical. My workflow looks like this (what does yours look like? post in … Continue reading How to use Lightroom CC + Still Export Albums in Lightroom Classic CC



How to Raise Kids Who Are Smart About Money

Fri, 27 Oct 2017 03:00:05 +0000

Parents, this is a great video about building purposeful money smarts into your kids. Mature money decisions as adults do not happen by themselves; your kids have either learned constructive (and sometimes painful) money lessons while they were young, or as adults. The older they are when they learn the harder it is to undo … Continue reading How to Raise Kids Who Are Smart About Money



Presenting the Most Bad-Ass Macbook Pro Skin in the Western Hemisphere

Sat, 21 Oct 2017 05:25:45 +0000

One of the things I was looking forward to when getting my MacBook Pro 13 was the fact that I buying a hardware platform. By that, I mean a product that would immediately achieve such critical mass that hundreds of companies would create accessories, cases, covers, adapters, etc. for it. Apple keeps their form factors … Continue reading Presenting the Most Bad-Ass Macbook Pro Skin in the Western Hemisphere



Xbox One Game Discs: Gaming Like it’s 2001

Sat, 02 Sep 2017 02:52:39 +0000

Long ago, in the days of yore, gaming consoles lacked local storage. Everything was stored in the game cartridge – or, in later years, on a CD or DVD – because putting rewritable storage on a console was expensive and complicated. It was easier to create one-time writable storage that the customer would buy, and … Continue reading Xbox One Game Discs: Gaming Like it’s 2001

Like Trying to Photograph Lightning: Taking Pictures of Hummingbirds

Tue, 15 Aug 2017 03:00:03 +0000

I had an opportunity to take photos of feeding hummingbirds this summer when we stopped over for the night in Trail, BC. It was the single hardest photo subject I’ve ever had – hummingbirds are so small, and move so fast, it was extremely difficult to get a focus lock and take a photo. Most … Continue reading Like Trying to Photograph Lightning: Taking Pictures of Hummingbirds



The VAVA VOOM 22 Bluetooth Speaker Reviewed

Sat, 10 Jun 2017 00:02:08 +0000

VAVA (which appears to be a sister company to HooToo) did a launch promotion on the VOOM 22 for $39.99, so I ordered it from Amazon the first day it was available – and as I write this, no one has reviewed it yet. The product packaging arrived a little banged up – and with … Continue reading The VAVA VOOM 22 Bluetooth Speaker Reviewed



Why is my Orange Crush Water Enhancer Genetically Engineered?

Sun, 04 Jun 2017 21:40:38 +0000

As a general rule, I am not worried about scientific advances in food growth and production. I do not buy organic (it’s not worth the cost to our wallet or the planet) and I do not boycott GMO food like some do. Genetic selection of plants has been happening since the first farmer selected the seeds … Continue reading Why is my Orange Crush Water Enhancer Genetically Engineered?



A Technology Pickle: a New Small Form Factor PC or an Upgraded Synology NAS?

Mon, 17 Apr 2017 05:44:33 +0000

I’m in a bit of a technology pickle and I’d like some opinions from my geeky readers. For the past several years, I’ve had a small computer (a Gigabyte BRIX, Core i7 CPU) running as my 24/7 server. It runs Plex for streaming movies, runs CrashPlan for backing up all my data (as well as … Continue reading A Technology Pickle: a New Small Form Factor PC or an Upgraded Synology NAS?



My Dysfunctional MacBook Pro & a Lesson in Humility

Sun, 09 Apr 2017 22:55:16 +0000

Since the first week I had my MacBook Pro, it had a peculiar, intermittent problem: it would spontaneously turn off, and getting it back on was hit or miss. Pressing and holding the power button didn’t do anything. Tapping the keyboard did nothing. Once, I reset the SMC and it came back to life – but … Continue reading My Dysfunctional MacBook Pro & a Lesson in Humility
