Ah 200GB of POWAR!

I managed to get a 2GB super high-speed CF card yesterday…after going to about 15 shops and them all having NO STOCK (It was RM330 for the Kingston Elite-Pro 50x 2GB).

So I thought I’d better get a new HDD aswell, seen as though my whole PC has only 3-4GB free space (with a 2GB memory card in the camera, that won’t last long!).

200GB Western Digital SATA drive (8MB Cache), pretty cheap now at RM295.


Welcome to the newest edition to the gadget family.

Ok now just left…tripod, SB800 speedlight, polarizing filter and a nice Lowepro bag, then I’m ready to shoot you and you and you, yes indeed.

I did a little experimenting with the camera yesterday, might post some pictures later, but I don’t think anyone is online today.

Oh well, off to clean the appt then, it’s filthy!

    where do you keep your work stuff, in F? I assume you put the programs in C also.

    mine’s something like this (one 60GB hdd only…):
    C for OS, D for programs, E for work data, F for backup (drivers, installation files etc), G for miscellaneous (i.e. non work), H for experiments(eg VM for other OSes etc), I is the DVD burner.

    Periodic backup to 80GB external hard disk.

    RIAA: All legally encoded mp3s from my own CD collection.

    MPAA: With free open source porn of course 😀

    pinolobu: Yah code HTML etc is in F, backed up to portable HDD and Gmail. I used to seperate programs and Windows, but I don’t any more as I find it easier to install the applications on C and install the drivers then when I’m done Ghost the partition, if you install the applications on D it makes it complicated.

    Paul Tan: Yeah the SATA price point is very low now, good value. I’ll probably get another SATA in a couple of months for backups.

    Do you leave a UV filter on the lens at all times as protection? I used to, then decided that I have never really damaged a lens over the years, even with some pretty basic cleaning techniques, and reading this made me feel better about it – https://www.luminous-landscape.com/columns/sm-feb-05.shtml
    A circular polariser is of course essential! Nothing like deep blue skies…*looks out of window at haze, sigh.

    Intensecure: Nah won’t bother, modern lenses are pretty hardy and the glass is recessed anyway, with a little care it would be hard to scratch, I really want a circular polarizer tho. RM197 but no stock for the D70s kit lens.
