My old Buddy Butch came to his senses yesterday and texted me saying he has decided the Citation Mustang is just a bit too small for him. He asked what I thought. I have thought that all along, but he was so excited about it that I wasn't going to poke a hole in his balloon. He has decided to do a PC12 demo and fly a King Air 200, before moving on. I hope he goes with the 12 so we can go to school together and I can start building time while ours is being built. I don't think he'll go new, so he'd most likely have his before we do.

Thanks Jim. Yes, I've seen Steve mention that it works for him.

I think I found the problem. I didn't realize that the integrated graphics on the Intel chip were critical, even though I also have the nVidia graphics card. Turns out if I disable the integrated graphics, Photoshop CC 2014 works.

Unfortunately the latest driver from HP is from 2012, and the newest driver from Intel won't automatically install because it's not certified by HP.

I think there is a work around for that, but at least I'm pretty confident I've narrowed the problem down to the integrated graphics driver.

OK, enough of this computer stuff for now. It's a nice day and I have some gardening to do.

FYI Drobo has not certified the 6TB drive for their units. The Drobo blog shows them running tests, but until they approve it, they won't reset the firmware to calculate capacities using 6TB drives. I'm thinking the tests should already be complete, but no word from Drobo to that effect.

Glenn, stop it, your images are making me drool
The P-38 in particular is sweet.

Paul - Great shots from Friday @ RIAT, really missing the roar from the fast jets, Duxford legends (prop aircraft only) being my only outing so far this year.

This isn't the sharpest shot, but I love the angle as the Hellcat starts to bank over towards the 'tank bank' at Duxford

Nothing quite says drag racing in America as a orange, 1955, blown, straight axle, 4-speed Jericho shifted Chevy Gasser.

This thing was stunning.

Have you read 'A Higher Call' by Adam Makos?
I have no family connection to the WWII aviators but this story moved me to tears, highly recommended if you haven't read it.

Great afternoon in QinetiQ car park - far from being "moved on" this time the place was packed with locals plus two ice cream vans and there was nowhere to park by the time I arrived. I was stopped by a security man, who I expected to tell me to park somewhere else, but no! he said "Just put it on the edge of the roundabout, there's nowhere else left"
Anyway, here are a few from today at Farnborough International. I know the "Connie has frozen props but it did two very quick circuits and it was the main reason I went today, as I have never seen it in the air!

Ok, 3 versions. Which one? I play with HDR stuff, but always worry that I go too far. First one is just minor stuff, then more HDR, then BW.

They all look terrific to me Tim. But a vintage Gasser just looks "right" in monochrome. Excellent work.
