NASA2,527,842Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008326

YouTube Gaming

So Youtube Gaming is here. Looks interesting, not sure if I prefer the new interface or the standard YouTube interface.

Bizarrely, however YouTube Gaming is recommending channels to me that I already follow on standard YouTube, but, when I try to import my channels, it ignores them because they're "not gaming related".

Right hand, meet left hand.

So Long Adobe CC

Well, I did it. I've been reaching the conclusion that Adobe CC for Photographers is not the package for me. I use Lightroom almost daily, but I can count the times that I've dipped into Photoshop CC over the year and a bit that I've been a subscriber, on the fingers of one hand, just about. So, today, I cancelled my CC subscription and switched back to stand-alone Lightroom 6.

Here's how I did it.

First off, I screwed up. More of that, and how it was resolved, later.

As an owner of standalone LR5 prior to my subscription, I qualified for an upgrade price on LR6. Adobe don't make it particularly easy to buy the standalone version, but it's not impossible and a little bit of searching soon uncovered the instructions.

So, upgrade purchase made, I looked into cancelling my CC subscription. That's where I... more »

As an owner of standalone LR5 prior to my subscription, I qualified for an upgrade price on LR6. Adobe don't make it particularly easy to buy the standalone version, but it's not impossible and a little bit of searching soon uncovered the instructions.

So, upgrade purchase made, I looked into cancelling my CC subscription. That's where I discovered my mistake. The terms and conditions for Adobe CC clearly state that if you cancel before the last month of the current 12 month contract, there will be a cancellation fee of 50% of the remaining subscription. In my case, I had 8 months to run, so I could have been liable for 4 months of subscriptions. Not a huge amount of money, but a significant hike to the LR6 upgrade price, and I should have investigated this first.

Because of this condition. The only way to cancel an Adobe CC contract when not in the last month of the one year contract period, is through contact with customer support. Cue concerns about being transferred to a persistent Customer Retention department.

In the end, it couldn't have been simpler. Contact was made online, very quickly. The rep, pointed out the subscription liability and then immediately waived it because I'd already purchased the LR6 upgrade.

Simple as that. Happy customer.

Once again, Adobe customer service, whether via social media or direct, comes through with the goods and demonstrates exactly how it should be done.

We're Hiring

The start-up that I work for has recently completed a successful round of Series A investment. As a result, it's entering a period of significant growth. So, we're expanding and hiring!

We're looking for:

- Experienced Linux Engineers.
- Programmers (PHP, Python, Javascript, shell an advantage, but all considered).
- Project Managers
- Sales Managers

Most positions are based in Shanghai, some roles may be in Beijing. Chinese language skills are essential for some roles (e.g. Sales) but not for all roles.

If you're interested in joining the journey with us to "run the world's internet servers" drop me a PM and I'll put you in touch with the right people.

Seriously Google?

I just tried to access Google Hangouts' new web interface. This is the message that greeted me:

"It appears as if you’re using an old or uncommon browser that doesn’t support common standards."

It then recommended that I download Chrome, Firefox or Safari.

My crime? I'm using the latest version Opera. A browser that is faster and more efficient than any of Google's suggestions (with the possible exception of Safari) and is based on the same codebase as Google Chrome, so compatible in fact, that it runs most Google Chrome extensions, straight out of the box.

Seriously Google? Old? Uncommon? Doesn't support common standards?

The End

Sounds like I may not be updating OS X after all, when El Capitan is released later this year. At least, that is, until a jailbreak is available.

I wonder if Apple realises how much it is alienating it's user base with BS like this, or if it even cares?

Corel Support are Useless

I have a copy of Corel Aftershot Pro 2, it's not bad. A few days ago, I read stories about all the new features that that the latest version was bringing so I downloaded it. First mistake. It wouldn't even start. Crashed before it could even display a splash screen. I rebooted, I reinstalled but to no avail. So, I reverted to backup and contacted Corel support.

The first response was an email template telling me to download the latest version and some patronising instructions telling me how to take a screenshot in Windows. Bear in mind that I'm on OS X and I made it very clear in my support request that it was the latest patch that was crashing. I replied, pointing out these facts.

The second response was a curt. "well, you'd better continue using that version until the next update". This seemed a bit confusing, so I... more »

The second response was a curt. "well, you'd better continue using that version until the next update". This seemed a bit confusing, so I quickly asked, what do you mean by "that version"?

The third response, equally curt, was "whatever old version it was that you restored from backup".

So, there you go, +Corel's idea of support is basically, "if we ship a broken patch, tough, we're not even going to try and help you, wait and see if the next patch fixes the issue"

As I said at the top of this post, Aftershot Pro 2 is not bad, but I can live without it. I may just delete it and make better use of the space.

Unbelievable

I have never seen so many visible stars in the vicinity of Shanghai in the six plus years that I've lived here. This incredible occasion, naturally, coincides with the one time that I forgot my tripod. Please excuse the blurry dots.

A couple of mugs, a calendar, two moleskins and a rather nice leather card holder. I was hoping for a T-shirt, but never mind. This is quite impressive.

Well, I'm now a pro member for the first time in 4 years. 

What I would like to see in Pro accounts is RAW support. I'm no where near as prolific as you +Thomas Hawk  so I could quite easily fit the last 12 years of raw shooting into 1TB and still have room for a few years more. At the moment, I'm shooting RAW+JPG just for the security of knowing that if anything catastrophic happens, I'll at least have an online backup of all my JPG files.

Maybe RAW will come.
