A field shooting trip (photography) kept me busy half of August, and will for a while yet, but I expect to see some very interesting products before long, both computer stuff and photographic. Wow, what nice Thunderstorms in early August in Yosemite.
When traveling and shooting, I use the OWC Mercury Envoy Pro EX for backing up my laptop with my photos, which tend to hit 100GB or more over the course of 10 days or so. A perfect little bus-powered and pocketable SSD for travel. Like the Sony RX100 III for quick handy photos.
And when home, I’m relishing the OWC Thunderbay. It’s just so straightforward and easy to add storage with Thunderbolt, and the OWC Thunderbay gives me high speed, high capacity, minimal noise, small footprint, tremendous flexibility. So many years I would have loved to have such a solution over eSATA and miniSAS and the associated hassles. All that messy business is now banished by using the Thunderbay units.
This year, all my fruit trees think it’s early October. Never before (in over 25 years) have I seen such a heavy and strangely early-maturing fig crop. Can’t keep up unfortunately, so much of it rots and drops.
