How did I never share this?!! I uploaded it to G+ on March 31, 2014, while I was still in Alaska. Somehow, I never shared it. I took this when I happened upon at least two dozen bald eagles while feeding their young. It was so amazing to watch!! Yet, it was impossible to capture amongst all the trees.
Case? I know it has issues. The case USB3's don't work. The one USB2 works, but the USB3's have always been intermittent until they finally completely failed. I need to replace the case anyway.
Power supply? This is my guess. I get random reboots and have since we built this computer. They happen very infrequently, but they happen nonetheless.
Once I replace the power supply and case, that computer will have been completely rebuilt except for the video card, memory and optical drive -- in exactly 13 months -- because of defective parts. I didn't buy "cheap" parts. I bought good, name brand parts. It was where I shopped that was the problem, I think. I'll have to buy a new case, but I hope the power supply has a 2-year warranty. Everything else has, so far. I'll be without computer while I wait.
This is beyond annoying!! How long before my video card fails? Maybe I should just RMA it now while the computer is already down!

In case you missed it, MGM Resorts International is about to change our Strip in a way that'll shock you! Las Vegas has always enjoyed what no other major metropolitan city does: free parking! Not for long, according to a recent article in the Sun.
YES!! Excellent article... why haven't we updated our education system?
If any of you geeks out there have a little spare time - and a website on a shared host - and want a serious challenge, I have just the thing for you!!
It seems no one has quite figured out how to install a LetsEncrypt certificate on a shared host that uses cPanel. My thinking is that the host could install it using SSH once I upload the necessary files via FTP ... but they tell me otherwise.
Here's a discussion: https://community.letsencrypt.org/t/fully-automate-manual-mode-for-shared-hosting/7416
Surely somebody can figure this out if enough great minds are working on it.
Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars.
My passion is life, and I express that through my photography and occasionally through writing. And I happen to be very passionate ... about FAMILY (first and foremost!), life, friends, people in general.
I'm a photographer who loves to write. I'm waiting for one or the other of those to become a profitable venture! I've been a bit lackadaisical about both, but I'm currently working on upping my game. I'm in the process of starting a boudoir business. Stay tuned for details.
Photography has been a passion of mine since childhood. Photographically, I have run the gamut from hobbyist to professional portrait and wedding photography to landscape/travel photographer. I’ll shoot (practically) anybody/anything anytime anywhere and have fun doing it! I have very few fears, so I have been known to take foolish risks to “get the shot.” I’ve threatened wild animals, climbed on all sorts of things, had rocks thrown at me from atop a mountain – all unscathed. I finally met my limit in July 2013 when I jumped off the wall surrounding the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, landing wrong and breaking my calcaneus. (Did I mention I was barefoot?)
If you like what you see, circle me! I'd be honored. If not, I'm glad you passed through and have a great G+ experience! If you love what you see, please comment and/or share. If I see you commenting, I'll visit your page! After all, that's what this social network is all about - networking and getting to know other people. I've met quite a few people face-to-face from the interactions online. You just never know.
I started the Leading Lines Monday page, which kept me very busy on Mondays for about three years. I loved curating it, and I loved the theme. My co-curators - Andreas Levi, David Murphy, Michael B. Stuart and Simos Xenakis - and I decided to end the theme in October 2014. It was bittersweet, but it was time to move on.
