….. make “such a lot” more sense, hence their needing to be “highlighted as much as poss.”

Yes I’ve pinched the photo from somewhere, but…

….it is, as a techo person …truly magnificent the progress made in recent years ….in the “storage wars?”

Pretty sure that beast the fork is loading onto a Panam flight is a 5 or 10mb hard disk drive (as they used to known)

And weird…..how true or not…it was a story passed to me from a friend who got it (well…thats what he told me) from “the source” that in those early days the company that sold these Hard Drives into organisations that needed “power”, well the machines actually had a “hidden” capacity.

As in…you had a 5 megabyte drive…but quite quickly your company decided it needed 10mb storage…so …cue …upgrade from company selling said device……technician arrives on site…..and unbeknownst to trusting paying customer…well to put it bluntly …the dude (cause they were back in the day) flicks a switch only he knows where it is.

Turns out…as soon as he’s left….said client is quite happy indeed…..cause you do indeed have 10mb and…so wow…so so quick!!!

Love it…and am looking to get one…

Just the most glorious sight from home…

IMG_2519

…out to the bay over the weekend.

DJI00279

And sorry folks only the one “boring” drone pic from this past weekend! (No post-processing here either)

Oh ok …. just one other. (OK granted it might not look much but its about 40ft AGL and with trees about 3m to the left…..most dangerous spot I’ve flown the drone so far because the wind was really gusting Saturday morning….and a zepher would move the little fellow a metre or 2 each time I looked up.)

….you ever did see - spotted locally.

Amusing because it was the same week that I also spotted this just parked up alongside the Main Rd, Stoke. Then again Nelson is known as the Classic Car capital of NZ, with more classic cars per head of population than anywhere else!!

A Nelson Real Estate Agent asked me to take photos of a home …

….this morning…however I didn’t think they showed the home in its best light….(Cloud cover didn’t help)…

….so a bit later when I noticed Mr Sunshine (which Nelson is pretty famous for) popped his head up…it looked better…

So at ground level…this 3 minutes from Nelson City centre property…

87A-Brook  (1)

…looks nothing like it is?

87A-Brook  (3)

However …(insert here)….and introduce me, … David….. and his drone!

DCIM\100MEDIA

And you are introducing a property that practically 90% of Nelsonians don’t even know exists…

DCIM\100MEDIA

….they will tomorrow or Wednesday because I am sure the agent will have it up on the web…in all its entirety!

87A-Brook  (33) (Large)

If you’re interested…call Karen at the Summit Office in Stoke…..cause I think this one won’t last long!

Technology continually ceases to amaze me each month………. and yes as you can see…I’m still trying to test out the best way to “de-line-ate” a properties boundaries…should it just be a red line, a shadow’ed zone or something else…

What do you think?

…and did I mention I love photography….
