You’re never to old to learn

For the past couple of months my wife and I have been having trouble charging up our Samsung Tab E’s.  Our USBs weren’t charging quickly enough to suit us.  We thought something was wrong with the Tablets.  Then I decided to switch to our cell phone USBs.  Right away the Tablets began to charge more quickly.  Meanwhile, when I tried to download images from my desktop computer to my Samsung Tab E only one in four or five would download.  Finally, today I switched to my Cell Phone USB to transfer the images and it worked immediately.  It had been the Samsung USB connector causing the problems all along.  So, if you’re having charging or image transfer problems check your USB connector.  You may need to switch as we did.

Hope this helps someone?

A Backup-Stand Alone Hard-Drive

One of the first things I do in the morning is check my email, etc. On a particular day a couple years ago I immediately discovered something was wrong … some off-the-wall virus protection message appeared on my monitor screen. I deleted it right away but, not realizing it, the damage had already started. Off and on during the day other messages appeared. I ran my virus and malware protection to check out the problem. They gave me the usual adware detections and virus threats that I either removed or quaranteed as my software recommended. By the next morning I was “dead in the water.” My computer would hardly run without interruption. My entire hard-drive was corrupted and had to be re-formatted or, I could get a new computer.
The fact that I was without a backup hard-drive really cost me. I lost all my images. Hundreds! If you’re new to photography or, as I was, are without a backup hard-drive, drop what you’re doing and go get one. If you’re not tech savy your tech guru can fix you up with one. The investment of 30-50 dollars will more than pay for itself very quickly. I’ve had some issues which needed my tech guru’s attention since I purchased my back up for $35.00 and my images were safe. Don’t let what happened to me happen to you.

The Holidays are approaching quickly!

The holidays will be on us before we know it and this would be a great time to consider gifts of a different nature…or landscape.  Images are for a life time and can and are passed on from generation to generation.  Images remind us of the past, great places we have visited, family gatherings, vacations, hiking trips, just to mention a few connections we have with them and, every time you look at one that means a great deal to you you’re taken right back to that place and time.  Even if you are not the one who took the images once you have them they’re for keeps and for passing on to your family or friends.  Think about it and enjoy the upcoming holiday season.
