We went to the Marble Falls Drag Boat races the other day, and this seaplane circled around once or twice. I took his picture and didn't even notice the writing underneath until just now when I was looking at the pictures... Not sure whether to laugh or cry!! I think I'll cry...



Another example of why you deserve to be called "Lady" Jo. The boob is the slug in the cockpit.


Well said, Jim!


Thanks Zim! Sheesh, some guys never get out of 8th grade mentally. Doesn't it comfort you to know they are flying things over our heads?

I somehow completely missed Jim's business card. I have heard of this elusive creature but have never seen it. I am sure it is stunning though .

Still working through the Topeka folders. Here's Scott Glover's immaculate Lockheed C-60, whose interior is every bitt as well maintained as its polished aluminum exterior. Unfortunately, Scott blew an engine in Topeka and so the airplane's still there, awaiting a new one.

Dear Geaux,

I'm kind of fond of it, and it seems to work. I rarely get away with handing a person just one, which is a good sign they might just remember me.

That makes no sense. As mentioned above it has been recommend for a long time to format in camera. I'm going on 9 years now with Sandisk and have never lost a single image.

Zim,
that is fabulous. Can't help myself, but me wonders what it would look like after some Silver Efex treatment

Thanks, Gero. You know, I'd been wondering that myself. Wonder no more...

Seems I'm having an unusually high failure rate on my CF cards in the last six months. Since I've been using CF media I've had very few failures, maybe two. I've had four Lexar 1000X/600X Pro cards go toes up in the past 60 days. I find this very unusual and I'm wondering if it's something I'm doing, like dropping a couple of cards in my pocket to rattle around with my iPhone, or something weird. Lexar replaces them asap, but that really isn't my main concern, I am getting a little nervous about trusting them. I had some Sandisk go south so I switched to Lexar, and this failure rate is higher than my Sandisks. Any thoughts from the brain trust?



I've actually had worse luck with Lexars than SAN disks, much like you. Although I'm not entirely sure it's a meaningful sample size . I've had even worse results out of Kingston. But flash memory does wear out, so if you're using it, sooner or later it's going to fail.

Actually, thought I'd add this. What I do is simply to buy more memory whenever the price falls low enough to tempt me . I mark the cards so that the ones at the top of the use list get pushed down. Eventually, they fall out the bottom as not being used at all any more. I find it less painful to just discard working cards than to deal with data recovery. I work in IT; it's simply not worth my time and effort to try to re-assemble bits and I know it.

Hi Rob,

Yup. I also think I need to break the bad habit of dropping three of them into a pocket and letting them bounce around in the dust all day. That probably has a lot more to do with it than how and where they are formatted Been doing that for years, and I'm sure it's not a suggested practice. Oh we'll, I ordered four more 1000X cards from B&H today and Lexar is sending me two more. That will bring me up to a dozen 32GB 1000X cards. Even with the D800 bodies that should be plenty. I date them when I put them into service, but I haven't noticed an age failure trend, maybe just a pocket lint failure trend.

I've often thought that I should just mark off the number of times that a card is used and use it less and less. It is really a wearing out issue. So if you use a particular card a lot of times, you're setting yourself up for a failure. I've never really gone to this extreme, but I don't shoot near as much as you do and it might be worth considering.

Might be a good idea to set the cameras up to record to two cards. Although this last one was really weird. I shot it, reviewed the images in the camera, took the card out, popped it in the reader and it went toes up. It's so dead that it is only seen as some weird memory with 80 MB of capacity and nothing one tries can get anything from it, nor can you reformat it. Maybe I should have Sheila wash it, that always seems to do the trick

Now that would be a bold thing to try
