Thanks for the kind words on the Corsair pic Jim, Jay, Rodolfo and Steve Z. Much appreciated.

The current rash of quality skies is really just due to the fact it's winter in the desert right now.

We'll return to clear, blue and a gazillion soon enough.

FWIW, I am taking the time to separate the jets from their backgrounds in order to process each slightly differently. The clouds are getting a little bit more contrast.

Hey, folks, just wanted to give a quick heads-up to those who hadn't yet seen it: Amazon's Deal of the Day includes Lexar 400x UDMA7 Compact Flash cards in 64GB and 128GB for $85 and $170, respectively.

Thought some folks might need more storage for the new year.

Here's a link to the Deal page (no affiliate code, and I have no connection to Amazon except as a satisfied customer).

Happy new year!

Mike

Just got the shipping notice for my new iMac 27". It comes with 2x4GB of 1600mHz DDR3 SDRAM, which I'd like to upgrade with the maximum memory it'll take. Does anyone know offhand what configuration of 3rd-party memory I'll want to buy, and can you name a good source for it? If I order memory today I should have it on hand by the time the computer arrives on January 3.

I now return you to your normally scheduled programming. Jay, fantastic post-processing on those aluminum tubes. You make those things look _good_.

Steve zz, you might try looking for OWC Macsales for ram and storage. They seem to be well regarded in various Mac forums. My dealings with them have been good.

Sir Steve - I believe this is what you are looking for; http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/memory/iMac/2012_27/DDR3L

+1 to Jeff. I have found macsales to be utterly reliable and very, very helpful and have found their prices to be pretty doggone good, at least for the RAM, External Firewire Drives, and one internal HD I got from them. They also have a Live Chat option that works extremely well if you want real-time consultation on what your options are, given what your equipment is and needs might be.

Crucial.com is also a good option. They're the retail arm of Micron, one of the world's largest memory manufacturers. They have an online configuration tool and should know what exactly your computer will handle. I've bought from them for years, among other suppliers, and never had a problem.

Here is another "thumbs up" for OWC. I've used them for several years as my primary supplier for HDDs and Ram. I've been very happy with the quality of their products, selection and fast shipping.

Thanks for the advice, everyone! Four, 8GB DDR3L SO-DIMM are $197 plus $8 for 2nd-day shipping, and I'm good to go.

Looks like my new iMac, my Drobo 5D w/ 20TB plus SSD (kit purchased from B&H), and my memory upgrade will all arrive on the same day next week.

Because you won't read it in the press, and the guys involved won't ever say much about it, I'll put it up here. Two of my friends (much demonized 1 per centers) are spending today and tonight, and about 15 grand of their own $$$, flying a mid 20's Staff Sargent who recently lost both legs at his hips in Afghanistan, across the country to San Diego.

This is not a rare occurrence for either of them, it's just one of dozens of such missions that they fly during the year. Each mission is flown by, and 100% funded by the pilots involved. The passengers are in no physical, or mental condition to travel by any other means. Now that's a story that should be shouted from the rooftops.

Thats a very generous gesture Jim is Butch flying?
Luckily for the Staff Sargent that there are still people who care.

I finally stopped lurking and joined what has to be the finest thread on the net. I've always been interested in aviation and found this site after being badly injured a couple of years ago. the beautiful photography and wonderful each of you wrote got me through many a bad day. I've learned a lot from you all, but have not had much chance to put it to work. Just getting to where I can kind of Walk again. I did make it to the airshow in Winston Salem NC but as you can imagine being my first the result's were less than stellar. If I can figure how to upload maybe you guys can critique and help me. Alas no full circles.
