2 terabyte

UMMMMM………

I came home from work today to find this massive-ass crate in my room shipped over by Grim from 343.

It includes:
- Halo Wars 2, Ultimate Edition for PC
- Free purchase of an Intel Core i7 processor
- An Atriox-themed customisable controller
- 2 terabyte hard drive
- Halo Wars 2 collector’s edition guidebook (featuring additional lore, direct developer insight, and concept art alongside the strategy stuff)
- Halo Wars 2-themed memory stick
- Spirit of Fire hoodie

That’s like… SO MUCH!

Mafumafu: “Please give me the biggest Mac computer”

Mamu: “2TB of SSD is lol”

Mafumafu: “When installing the software, I was already buried in”

Mamu: “It’s because you’re putting in nothing but erogames right?”

S!N: “The computer capacity is insane!!!! wwwwww”

Mafumafu: “With this, I can make Nico Nico Douga videos efficiently right!!!!”

cache-rules-everything-around-me  asked:

Are you a fan of Ken Rockwell? I think a lot of your followers would benefit greatly from his website. He reviews lenses scientifically and gives really informed lessons on how the pros shoot. I can't share links in asks, but a quick google search will pull him up.

I’m going to apologize right off the bat. I don’t want you to feel like I am trying to embarrass you in any way. I’m really really sorry, but I think it is important for you and everyone to know that Ken Rockwell is a bad resource for information.

He gets a lot of high ranking google results for reviews and instruction and he’s built a pretty large following, but some of the information he gives is erroneous and sometimes dangerous. Not in the “you’ll die” sort of way, but in the “I will learn bad habits” sort of way. 

He definitely knows a decent amount about lenses and his reviews are not typically far off in factual detail, but his opinions are what gets him into trouble. He’ll often say, “I don’t know why you’d ever need this” just because a lens is a bit too pricey for his tastes. Yet, he ends up using some of the most expensive equipment for much of his photography. And his photography is uninspired and he often makes odd choices for composition and lighting.  

The worst information he gives is about JPEG vs RAW. He often recommends shooting in low quality JPEG mode because “8 megapixels is more than enough.” He claims that RAW files take too much room and that he sold a 5 megapixel image to McDonald’s for $5000 that they used for a billboard. 

I think that is unethical. I don’t care if McDonald’s has billions of dollars. Your client should receive the highest quality, highest resolution images you can provide. Especially for that price. He is basically bragging about screwing a customer. 

JPEGs are great for posting online, but the truth is… they take your image and throw most of it away. Much of the tonal and pixel data is lost through compression. And while I don’t think you need high megapixel counts to get good images, saving your files at maximum resolution is still important. For one, it gives you enormous latitude for cropping and recomposing your image in many ways. Secondly, 8 megapixels might be decent now, but what about in 10 years? Only keeping an 8 megapixel jpeg is like getting a wallet size print and throwing away the negative. 

He acts like storage is some precious resource that you must conserve at all costs. I think he once said you can only fit 30 or so raw files on a memory card and that was a waste of space. However I just bought a 32 gigabyte SD card that can save several thousand raw files and my 2 terabyte hard drive can hold a few hundred thousand. That’s about 20 bucks for the SD card and and 80 bucks for the hard drive. Storage is cheap and is only getting cheaper.

YOU SHOULD ALWAYS SAVE YOUR FILES IN HIGH QUALITY RAW AND KEEP THEM BACKED UP IN TWO PLACES. 

I wrote a post about why RAW files are the best. If nothing else, they help you future proof your photos. As time goes on, displays will have much higher resolutions. 4k screens will be standard for PCs, TVs, laptops, and tablets. Having the highest quality version of your photography may not always be necessary now, but I assure you, in 15 years you will be damn glad you kept those RAW files. 

I almost never speak ill of people, but Ken Rockwell is a mediocre photographer with very misguided opinions. And his website looks like it was designed in 1996. He’s very good at sounding like he knows what he is talking about and that fools a lot of people. It fooled me for a while too. When you are just starting out and you are doing google searches, his name will pop up quite often.

I hope that you don’t think I am faulting you in any way for using him as a resource. I’m just hoping that I can convince you to take everything he says with a grain of salt. He’s a coot and I’m guessing he’s said “newfangled gadgets” on more than one occasion. 

If you want true scientific analysis of lenses, try DxOMark. If you want quality reviews on lenses and gear, try DP Review and The Digital Picture. If you want the finest photography instruction on the internet, see my previous post.

Schrott und Sicherheit

Beim Aufräumen des Home Office an einem regnerischen Samstagnachmittag nehme ich endlich mal die drei alten externen Festplatten in die Hand, die unter dem Schreibtisch Staub sammeln. Die Peripheriegeräte sind längst nicht nur mit ihrem Fassungsvermögen von 250, 500 und 750 Gigabyte zu klein, sondern zudem physisch mit Ziegelsteingröße unhandlich, mit USB 2.0 beim Datentransfer zu langsam und brauchen auch noch ein externes Netzteil. Deshalb habe ich sie schon vor einer Weile durch kleine handliche externe Festplatten mit 1 und 2 Terabyte ersetzt, die USB 3.0 haben und ihre Stromversorgung vom Computer beziehen.

Die alten Festplatten mag ich allerdings nicht einfach als Elektroschrott entsorgen; vielleicht hat ja noch jemand Verwendung dafür. Aber einfach so weggeben mag ich sie auch nicht: Da sind alle möglichen Backups meiner Rechner drauf, mit Dateien, die ich nicht so gerne unbefugten Blicken preisgeben möchte.

Also hänge ich die Geräte an einen Rechner, starte das passende Dienstprogramm und wähle die sichere Option, statt des einfachen Löschens und Formatierens die Festplatte mehrfach mit Nullen zu überschreiben. Das soll verhindern, dass irgendwelche Datenrettungsprogramme doch noch eine meiner gelöscht geglaubten Dateien wieder hervorholen.

Sehr schnell sehe ich, dass das wohl eine Weile dauern soll.

Aber das macht ja nix, die Dinger können ja ruhig paar Stunden vor sich hin arbeiten.

Allerdings geht es dann plötzlich sehr schnell – während die 500-GB-Platte an einem Computer noch gelöscht wird, meldet sich der andere Rechner mit einer Statusmeldung zur 250-GB-Platte:

Und wenige Minuten später bekomme ich für die andere Platte eine gleich lautende Fehlermeldung: Das sorgfältige Löschen, wie ich es wollte, geht nicht. Warum, erschließt sich mir nicht – zumal sehr unterschiedliche Rechner die gleiche Fehlermeldung ausgeben.

Ich bleibe ein bisschen ratlos und packe die Platten erst mal wieder zum Staub sammeln unter den Schreibtisch. Vielleicht bleibt mir doch nur, die Gehäuse aufzubrechen und mit dem Hammer die Laufwerke unbrauchbar zu machen. Andererseits: wäre doch schade drum.

Nintendo Releases Full Details Of New "NX" System!
  • “NX” simply means Nintendo X, the letter after W, which was associated with the Wii.
  • The New System will use cartridges instead of discs, offering games with up to 2 terabytes of information.
  • The NX processor is a 512-bit “Mocha Latte Frappuccino” processor, capable of processing more bytes than there are atoms in the universe.
  • The NX is a virtual reality compatible system, which features lightweight glasses about the same size as modern 3D movie glasses. Each eye will have 8K resolution with a high dynamic range, capable of 72 frames per second.
  • Release games will include the new Legend of Zelda, the new Metroid, the new Super Mario Bros., Yoshi’s Island NX, and the new Pong game, which is said to feature no notable differences from the classic game but is included for sentimental value.
  • The NX will feature bio-sensitive contacts instead of a traditional controller. The new means of control will be through electrodes attached to the forehead. The electrode contacts will secrete a paralytic fluid that renders the player immobile and transfers their nerve impulses to the character within the game, thus controlling it as one would their own body. Due to the paralysis, Nintendo is including special diapers and drool-suction-hoses to keep players clean from their own uncontrolled bodily fluids.
  • The NX will allow you to surf the internet in a new way: The MiiNet. The MiiNet allows you to wander any site in VR format, and interact with other users as you would with people in the real world. This includes the ability to play MiiSports, trade and fight Pokémon in person, and for users over 21 years of age, participate in the new Nintendorgasm Sexual Simulation Network, in which participants can engage in digital sexual acts previously inconceivable to humankind with other users or virtual characters, including most popular Nintendo characters and for some reason, the likeness of Frederick William III, king of Prussia from 1797–1840. Though Frederick William III is well known for his attempts to unify the Protestant churches and homogenize their liturgy, Nintendo have not commented on why they think players would want to have kinky digital sex with his likeness.
  • The NX will be available in black, white, or green in a special “Yoshi NX” edition!
