    Apple IOS updates

    Seems Apple have been forced to warn people of potential impacts that IOS updates will have. Whether it will slow down the device or have an effect on battery life, here in the UK it must be revealed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-48364208?intlink_from_url=&link_location=live-reporting-story

    AMD Ryzen 3000 rumours are Adored

    Given the higher TDP at the top end of the supposed chart I am surprised we have not heard anything about a new stock cooler as the Prism would be hitting it's max.

    Concerns about Noctua NH-D15

    Air is being moved front to back, so any heat generated will increase in the heatsinks towards the rear. It is normal and not of concern. As someone already mentioned, it is working as intended.

    Show off your old and retro computer parts

    I have an old Osborne 1 somewhere, I will have to dig it out and take a shot or two. Think it is in my fathers attic. Places where I have worked have systems that use punch cards to program just kept as they never got chucked out. I think there may be some magnetic core memory sat in a cupboard on one of those sites. I might take a shot or two of that if I get to there again. Just 7 years ago I still had to work on some old IBM tape sleds, they used 8" floppy drives for setup and the running code. Lots of fun they were.

    More cooling needed?

    Thanks, will check that out.

    More cooling needed?

    It is a Corsair Carbide 100r, quite a cheap case but I am one of those odd people that still needs front bays. When I built this a few weeks ago there was very little available at my dealer that wasn't huge with bays.

    More cooling needed?

    Just ran Ungine 2 (supposition) benchmark repeatedly for quite some time on stress test for an hour to see what temps I am getting. The GPU hit 81c and the CPU when all cores pushed to 100% maxed at 56c according to CPUID. Do I need more case cooling or are these fine? Ambient temp is currently 27c. Running a Gigabyte Windforce 2060 and Ryzen 2600 on a Gigabyte X470 Gaming Ultra. The case has just the one stock fan (Corsair Carbide 100R case) but can take more if needed.

    Opening Raw files with Windows 10

    What model of camera? out of the box, Win 10 can display thumbnails of certain raw formats but not all the latest models are added. There is no built in editor so to do any work you need to install one of the aforementioned tools or the one supplied by your cameras manufacturer

    Stuff to do with a raspberry pi

    I've done lots with various PI. Just finished building a magic mirror with one - https://www.google.co.uk/search?source=hp&ei=wcPSXKH9KYr8kwXZ76vwBg&q=magic+mirror+pi&oq=magic+mirror+p&gs_l=psy-ab.1.2.0l10.1626.5111..8418...0.0..2.328.3363.1j6j7j2......0....1..gws-wiz.....0..0i131.15HjLqfKbdU Plenty of advice and instructions to build and enhance that as a project.

    Rate the Photo Above you

    Not sure about the crop on the first two but that is just my taste. Focus nailed as is the lighting. Maybe darken that white edge a little in the second, it is certainly my fav of the three shots. The last one I find my eye wanders to the picture rather than the lovely lady. Great B&W conversion and the eye contact is excellent. Here is a shot of a common tern tossing a fish to it can be swallowed head first.

    Film Processing Affordably HELP

    Try - https://www.dwaynesphoto.com/newsite2006/customer-service.html Who I believe are $10 a roll of C41 including scanning https://www.willowphotolab.com/ seem off at the moment but normally they cost $7 a roll of C41 . They are also in your state so shipping would hopefully be reasonable. https://www.fulltonephoto.com/film/ might be worth a try.

    Need advice for upgrading

    The 1200D has an older 18mp sensor that didn't do so well in the noise department compared to newer products. Still not a bad camera though. For what you are looking at spending maybe take a look at the Canon RP. Already there are some in the Canon refurb store popping up occasionally so might be worth checking there if you want to save a little. Or look for any of the newer crop bodied cameras like the 77D which will take all your current lenses and cost a lot less. There is one in the refurb store for $518 at the moment. That will allow you to add a fast lens or two, such as the 40mm pancake lens which is great for street.

    Experiences with non-techies

    Having worked in IT for the last 20 years I have seen all sorts. One I actually found was quite upsetting. This was a lady on one of our sites who had spent 7 years of her career documenting the staff and military personnel who had worked or trained there. Quite a few had died in various conflicts or for other reasons. One morning her computer would not start. You guessed it, the hard drive had failed and she had no backups. She was in tears, almost hysterically. What made it more frustrating was the machine had automated backups. All she had to do was pop a daily DDS tape (yes, this was a while ago) in her machine and all would have been good. Unfortunately nobody had told her, a simple lack of training. In the end a data recovery firm managed to recover a lot of her stuff, but it cost not only financially but a lot of heartache.

    What IS this MOUNT!?

    It is a Minolta AF mount or A mount as it became called. The Nikon contacts are on the side rather than the face of the mount. Pentax K has no contacts visible on the face either.

    What IS this MOUNT!?

    It is the Minolta AF mount or A mount in 5 pin version, there was also an 8 pin type. Have one here in my cupboard so am 100% sure.
