I love the wonderful colours in Autumn, especially when the sun is shining and the sky is blue. Going for walks in this season are refreshing even when Winter is coming.

This was interesting to read about losing a week’s worth of photos from a memory card failure. I have had my own woes with memory cards and USB drives failing without backups being done. The costs are quite prohibitive for restoring hardware failures as indicated in the piece. The main lessons are getting many cards (reading negative reviews to judge failure rate), backup often and use a camera with dual card slots.
Some negative customer reviews are frivolous because they are rooted in user error, or because they concern themselves with delivery rather than the product’s quality or performance. However, negative reviews are generally more significant than positive reviews.
If you think that one shouldn’t focus on the negative while the vast majority of reviews are positive, consider that on Amazon, the average rating for a product is 4.4 (out of 5) as found here by analyzing 7 million reviews. Even a product with an average 4.0 rating (4-star) is below average. The large majority of products are rated above 4.0, so the difference between a great product and a subpar product is less than 1 (star) on average. On the other hand, we’ve just seen that the number of 1-star reviews for different cards varies by a factor of four.

The moonlight over Achill Island is wonderful tonight. The photo does not do justice to how it looks in reality
Love this image of the boat traffic on the Grand Canal in Venice at the end of June 2017.
Venice, Italy in the summer. Loved this photo from last year when I was walking towards the Rialto Bridge.
The summer goes on in Helsinki this month. Just checked the weather forecast and the sun will be here for the foreseeable future.
This is what I used for on-the-go tech in 2003 sitting in a café in Madrid. A Psion 5mx and a brick Nokia mobile phone The Psion had a great form factor that had a keyboard that was just big enough for touch-typing and small enough to fit into a jacket pocket. It also had the wonderful benefit of being distraction-free.
Not forgetting the camera, a Canon Powershot S30. A remarkably pocketable device for the time.
