    Well... my cousin did just that. Unfortunately, I didn't get a shot so I can't show you.
    However, the Cambodians are superstituous folks and nowadays, vile as that animal was, some of the locals who were the last bastians of the Khmer Rouge ended up treating him as some sort of deity of the land. They pray to him for health, wealth; etc. He banned all such beliefs when he was alive; so how stupid does that sound? I think I posted an image of his cremation ground earlier... if not I will post another to show how the locals still respect to him.

Long story short, a company in BC (Canada) provided a new board and transfer the ROM contents from my old drive PC board... and voila! Reassembled the board and she's a workin' again. $49.95, such a deal.

    So now after a 2 year break I can restart the massive editing process using modern software. Fun, fun, fun....
    I always back up on two drives as well as a copy on DVD... Even that, sometimes I think it's not enough.

    Well done D70 getting them back.

    Tim, I love the way you say it how it is. "like a discarded rat". I don't think the language contains an adequate euphemism for that mongrel.

    It's true Dread. Originally I used the word 'dog' but dogs don't deserve to be lowered to such his level.

    I was starting to back them up on Blu-ray (25GB per disk) when the connection problem occurred. I had about half of the drive backed up at the time. So now I have the recovered original drive, a new HDD, and am completing the Blu-Ray archives. I am also adding to the Smugmug archives as well.

    Very pretty K1W1 though I suspect a big print would bring it to life better than a small screen

    It looks a tad too bright to me. A few years ago my brother, who lives in Vic, took me to a national park that's full of ferns. I wonder if this is the same place. I don't remember its name though.

    K1W1; Lovely detail but I admit that I am not that much a fan of monochrome, I prefer color images. After all we see in color not B&W. I wonder how much more we would like Ansel Adams work had he shot it in color? Still great stuff, just speculating.

    Thanks. Actually in many ways I prefer b&w for landscapes in particular and looking at Adams' pictures I think that in colour many of them would be in the ordinary category. We all have our different opinions.

    Todays random pic. I searched my Flickr stream for "Nikon D300" and this popped up.
