I don't know if my anti-virus program has been fixed - it hasn't acted up this morning, but at least I now know there is no malware on my laptop, I've done a disc clean-up, a dskcheck, and the Windows core files are not corrupted. So the problem probably lies within the AV programme.


And today I got a new 50mbs internet connection - so far I've had speeds of between 34mbs and 48mbs - an awful lot better than the 20-22mbs I had earlier.

I sure got lucky with my brightest meteor caught this year going right through the North Star/Polaris (at the middle of all the circles). There are at least 4 clear Perseids in this image, but I saw many more when the shots where being taken.


Notes: 232 30 second exposures were stacked with 1 dark frame. I did clone out one annoying plane traversing the scene (painful).


Update: For stacking, those of you commenting that your computer wouldn't handle having that many images open, not to worry. For this I used the free Startrails Application that will open them one at a time and blend and then move on to the next. You can also point it to any dark frames you took to assist with noise reduction. Or, if you prefer to fully work in PS you can use the free star trails action (some folks report this second link makes their anti-virus software act up, but I know of no issues with any malware for this site and have used the action many times with no problems).

I wanted to share a new shot taking this weekend with you, but at the moment this will have to do until I figure out what's going on with my computer. Yesterday afternoon as I was processing my new shots it decided it had enough and my programs started to run at a crawl. What normally takes 30 seconds at the most (tone-mapping one of my HDRs) all of a sudden took between 65 and 90 seconds. Yawn...


I tried everything I could think of to speed things up (several reboots, disk clean, registry clean, virus scan, adware and malware scan, disk defrag even though according to Windows it didn't need it...), all to no avail. The thing is Windows starts up and runs fine, programs open fine too, but when I want to do something, lets say in Dynamic-Photo HDR, the program becomes quite unresponsive. It doesn't crash, if I leave it it'll get there eventually... but it takes forever.


Sorry for the rant, but I am out of ides and open to any suggestions of what else I could try to get things going again.

THANK YOU everyone for your visits, comments and favs!


I really appreciate your invitations and awards ~

Aloe Vera flower blooms ~


I am back after having my computer in the good hands of the "Geek Squad" taking care of the "BSOD" commonly known as the "Blue Screen of Death."

We had this registry error that wouldn't go away, so took it in and they found 173 traces of malware & spyware that wasn't caught by the virus protector.

Needless to say, I am happy to have everything working again :)


Aloe Vera flowers ~




Aloe vera is a succulent plant species that is found only in cultivation, having no naturally occurring populations, although closely related aloes do occur in northern Africa. The species is frequently cited as being used in herbal medicine since the beginning of the first century AD. Extracts from A. vera are widely used in the cosmetics and alternative medicine industries, being marketed as variously having rejuvenating, healing, or soothing properties. There is, however, little scientific evidence of the effectiveness or safety of Aloe vera extracts for either cosmetic or medicinal purposes, and what positive evidence is available is frequently contradicted by other studies.


The bottom flowers have already finished, and are pointing upwards, like the eventual seed-pods do. The next ones up are open and hang downwards, while the buds are the top, yet to open, point upwards.

I've had this one waiting to post and then ran across the virus issues out at deviantart, so I didn't post it. I already replaced the moon (so to speak) in trying to alleviate links to deviantart. The girl was from deviantart, but the artist is no longer available to link to. Alas, I couldn't find good replacements for the flowers and bushes. So I'm posting this with a link to the excellent resources of BrokenWing3DStock, and a caution for those who may venture to the link; beware there are virus's floating around the deviantart website lately. Unless you have a paid subscription to deviantart, you risk malware and virus activity in going to that link.

I wish I was dashing about like this Common Green Darner, but instead I have been trying to install my programs on my new computer.


Luckily I made a restore point early on because I messed everything up royally. I had adware and malware with something I downloaded. I couldn't install Photoshop - I couldn't activate it. I removed it and reinstalled it several times and spent many hours chatting with the nice Adobe folks. Nothing worked.


My Firefox browser had me view a security certificate each time I opened a page. Plus I had annoying pop-ups everywhere.


So I started over. Deleted everything I could from each folder, uninstalled, and went back to a restore point.


Finally I got everything back in order


The good news is I could sync my add-ons in Firefox and load my Award Counter settings from the cloud. I should be good to go now. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Sorry if I'm missing some contacts at the moment - my Flickr isn't working very well - I can't view photos from individual photostreams - only from the collective contacts' pages. I can hover over the thumbs and they definitely appear to be hyperlinked, but the pics never resolve. Is anyone else getting this please? I get the same on three unconnected PCs.

I had another problem a few weeks ago with Javascript on Firefox, but I'm on Google Chrome now, the other two PCs run IE, by the way.

I've also had occasional uploading problems and not being able to add to the map, but that seems OK now.

My computer's free from malware and works fine otherwise.

It's still blowing a gale and raining so here's another one from my St Stephen's Green archives.


I have something wrong with my Bullguard anti-virus program. Part of it intermittently stops working . . . I spent much of yesterday running dskchecks etc . Today I'm going to have to , at some time, run a lengthy anti-malware program. At the moment Bullguard seems to be working properly, but if it stops I'll bite the bullet and go offline, and will get back to contacts when I can.

MIDDAY UPDATE: So far it's running okay.
