Well. This is a bit overdue, but I will no longer be taking photos every single day for another 365 days.
This decision is partly down to the fact that I transferred my iPhoto library onto a new external hard drive that promptly stopped working. I rang the company’s support line, and they were super friendly but all they can do for now is send me a new USB cable. Fingers crossed that’ll work, or that’s 90gb and you know, my portfolio and about eight years of my life down the toilet. (Before anyone asks, yes, I know you should back everything up. The only thing I did after transferring the files was restart my computer, with every intention of backing them up as soon as that was done.)
So if anyone has any handy hints that the folks at the company didn’t think of, I’m open.
The hard drive is formatted as FAT32. I use a Mac. The (non powered) hard drive’s light is on and it’s making noises, but it doesn’t show up in the desktop, Finder, or Disk Utility. It does show up in the System Information though…
Anyway, the second reason is that I just don’t have enough time. With my new project blossoming, work, radio, TV and uni starting soon, I just find that I’m taking repetitive photos and that’s not in the spirit of things.
I will keep this site though. It will be used more for periodic updates and photos now.
But really, if you have any hard drive ideas, I’m all open.
