  1. Not sure what you mean by this - going the silicon route? I just got an update notice from CCC saying it fixes the Big Sur problem.
  2. Had no idea about the Big Sur issue - yikes! I'm still using Mojave - my frustration level is such these days that if it's not broke I'm not fixing it, but I will need to upgrade one of these days. Thanks for the link re: disk utility.
  3. I used migration assistant when I got my latest laptop and ended up with more stuff that I didn't need, but as Michael said you can then delete - but I like CCC and used that for the laptop I had before this one and just added the items I wanted after re-installing all my software. The only reason I used Migration Assistant instead this time is that CCC only copies items on your hard drive and iCloud in its infinite wisdom keeps your older files in the Cloud with placeholders on your computer. I didn't have the patience to go through my hundreds of folders one at a time download everything ont
  4. Good luck with the camera. If you'd had a backup with you, it could've meant two repairs.... ask if they do rush repairs for pros. Nikon did that for me once long ago - less than a week vs. a few weeks.
  5. Good luck Ed! Hope it works out without so much hassle!
  6. If you have Amazon and/or Netflix you can stream directly onto your laptop without the need for anything other than a WiFi connection. I wonder if one of those Amazon Fire devices (which bring in way more than just Amazon & Netflix, including some free channels) that plug into your TV via a usb port work with your computer? We just got one (for our TV) to replace a Sony streaming box (about 5 years old) that was no longer supported by Amazon and Netflix. Amazon gave me a coupon so I could get it for free. And of course a couple of months of BritBox subscription & they've made back the
  7. Ed loved your explanations as to why you chose the eight. Your eye for detail is excellent and we all can learn from your thoughts.
  8. Well, I felt somewhat okay with three sales this month (one decent, 2 small), until I realized a good sale from early November, which had cleared, was refunded in April, wiping out all my gains for the month and more. So, a fee I earned Nov 4, 2020 was refunded April 29, 2021, just short of six months later! “April is the cruelest month." PS @Wim this time I got TS Eliot's quote right. Oh well... "April showers bring May flowers..." 🌺 🌸 💐 Maybe May sales will be brighter.
  9. I feel your pain, but don't give up. I've had royalty free sales in $$$ in the past few months, so it's more likely a distributor issue than the fact it's royalty free. Just know to expect a huge price variation. And pray the $$$ sales don't get refunded. It's a frustrating market. Maybe easier to walk away when you're new to the market. For those of us who've been doing this for over a decade, it's hard to walk away.
  10. 3 sales from $5.21 to $49.99, better than average one per thousand images, but those $5 sales are really disappointing. My CTR is at an all time low but Zooms have never been much of a predictor for me. Views are just over 50% of pre-Covid days.
  11. Great work congrats to all the finalists. A hard choice indeed!
  12. Third sale this month, this time for mid $$ Websites, apps, social media and blogs (excludes advertising). Worldwide for 5 years. View of Storm Canyon and Laguna Mountains, California. At this point I have about half as many sales as in 2020 but twice the revenue. Of course, 2020 was a terrible year for both, but still good to see my chart going in the right direction.
  13. Editorial image of my daughter at a mall in Ohio, sold to a Finnish editorial website. Only $ but it brings back good memories seeing it.
  14. Looks like you did a creditable job from the FB post! Disheartening when the weather isn't perfect, but looks pretty amazing nonetheless!
