In addition, you can also add... continue reading

Upgrade pains... And the importance of backups

For once, a blog post that has no real photographic content, just to underline once again how important regularily backing up your data is.Beside being an amateur photographer, I'm also a keen simracer (I use the iracing.com simulator, essentially racing on ovals), and my computer had been "getting on a bit".Helped by the fact that I decided not to buy the 50D for a few more months, I had some money to spend. It went into a new processor and a new graphics card.In order to install the... continue reading
