Day 389: Command

I spent a fair amount of the evening dealing with the whole back-up/archiving situation on my lappy... I'm quickly running out of room at the rate I shoot, and especially as I'm now going RAW.

    I actually REALLY like this shot too, very unique and fun!!

    Nice shot. I like the side light and DoF.

    Check out Fry's... I've found some great deals on external hard drives there. They also have the best deals around on spools of dvdr's which is what I use to burn off my pictures for storage.

    ooo yay, thank you... hooray! I totally wasn't feeling anything "woah... me!" but also didn't want to just plunk out a foot or hand shot... so I played around a bit and got this... I'm glad you REALLY likey!

    you noticed, you noticed, you noticed! yipee!

    I actually have 2 500gb external drives already... I was doing a complete HD backup & extra archiving of all shots before 2007 (on both drives) then I went through and deleted all the aforementioned oldies (that hadn't been tagged in iPhoto for references) from the lappy... and I'll take the 2nd external drive to my father's house for diversifying my chances against freak robbery or natural disaster!

    I'm not sure if we even have Fry's out here... wait, you're "out here" nevermind...

    Heh. It's in Wilsonville. You can order off their site too though, they ship free I believe. Check the Oregonian though, they put out an ad about 3 times a week with lots of specials. Some GREAT deals. They might even have the specials listed on the site. I've gotten some amazing prices on stuff from there. I got my external 300GB drive from there about 2 years ago for about $80... this was when they were about $250 everywhere else. I get my DVDR's for pennies because I buy them on sale on 100 count spools. I love Fry's hehe.
  • Jimbosbaby 8y

    neat shot!
  • Amancay Maahs 8y

    ah, just outside the usual range of my PTown ventures... but good to know (my friend who just came up to visit me lives out there...)

    thank you... makes me happy to see people say that on what could easily be seen as a simple hand on keyboard... yay!

    LOL so did I have any influence on you?

  • Amancay Maahs 8y

    possibly.. but not really... I've taken loads of shots on this thing *referring to lappy* and that's really ALL I did all night... click + command or shift + click, then delete...
  • Elizabeth Shear 8y

    Love the colors!
  • Amancay Maahs 8y

    I'm so focused in on picking out the prettiness, and nuances of technology, right now... it's annoying even myself!
  • Matt dB 8y

    were you using command+a a lot?
  • Amancay Maahs 8y

    ha... not really, but it's where my other fingers naturally tends the reach/rest I guess *just checked* yup! I actually use my ring finger to hit shift, randomly!?
