Anther hectic week on the PI list with lots of topics covered and answers given to problems from our members from all around the world, please see below:
The first topic that arose this week was problems with Apple Mail, with our resident Mac guru Paul Ellis supplying the solution. This was followed by a discussion on UK Commercial mortgages and the associated problems, unfortunately there seems to be no simple route except determination and repeat applications.
The BPC and BAPLA were discussed at length, There appears to be a unanimous voice saying they aint worth their onions! Modems was the next topic appearing with recommendations pouring forth. After this various members were having difficuties with Canon 5D tethering and various workarounds were suggested.
Insurance effects us all and is an often discussed topic and it’s come up again with providers being suggested in the UK. This was followed with problems with photos on El Capitain which were dealt with by the knowledgable ones in our midst.
A very sad topic came up which concerned Barry Lategan who as many said was one of the great fashion photographers of our time apart of course from launching Twiggy’s career. He is suffering from ill health and a very unfortunate brush with the law. Many wanted to help and even legal support was proposed from California.
The next series of posts included a search for Yosemite downloads, and considerable discussion on ICC profile creation followed with a cry for help from a photographer using Airport Extreme with a Draytek Vigor 130. Bikini lists were mentioned, not for the first time and not with the highest of recommendations it has to be said!
Adobe Creative Cloud was causing one member problems but several others did not have any hassles. Problems were reported with lens contacts on a Canon 5D which it was suggested would disappear with good cleaning, and then people discussed the pros and cons of Applecare.
Finally a very Raw topic, Reuters has decided – a crazy decision most members thought to ban image supplied from RAW files…… with lots of comments to be continued next week no doubt.
Have a good month and seasonal greetings to all as we move into December.
