It has been a while since I did a photo manipulation in Photoshop. 3 years actually. So, I decided to dust off the old art skills and put one together. I call this piece "Lost In Time." Too often I find myself sad about getting older and not being able to relive beautiful moments from my past. This art piece is a reminder to keep looking forward and not to dwell on the past.  Please let me know what you guys think.  :D

Stayed up all night yesterday replacing my HHD with an SSD in my 27inch iMac.  It was a little scary taking it all apart at first.

Friends seeking backup advice for their photography: I learned a couple of things today about creating a mirrored RAID 1 array with two drives.  One, always zero out drives before creating RAID in order to force the hard drive to check for bad data blocks during the erasure process, and to mark any bad blocks as not to be used. Two, always use 128K (not the default 32k) block size when creating the array since I am storing Raw photos, and TIFF files.  Hopefully this gauruntees no future problems with my drives, and improves performance when reading and writing files.  Oh and run Spinrite or Disk Warrior once a month! :D

Note to self: Always pack hard drives with carry on luggage.
