I've been messing around with a PC for some of today, I won't bore you with the details but how can a usb port work under DOS then disappear under Windows?
Presumably some sort of driver problem so you go to the manufacturers web site to find them. What model do you have? Don't know, well enter the serial number or part number on the case, you do that, numbers not recognised!! Packard Bell is the company in question and the support is dire in the extreme. It went on and on with seemingly random answers as you go through the process. Not looking for an answer here folks, just venting my frustration! Thankfully it's not my PC but it's another vote for MAC.
I went for a short walk yesterday, short because Tez decided it was actually a bit cold for walkies. I kept the 50mm on just for fun although I don't really intend to use it as a walk around lens but the very short DOF at f1.8 is good to play around with. Anyway I fear I may be waffling, I saw this, do you think the bench may be shut down for maintenance? Struck me as amusing in any case.
