@wxcafe Slightly more expensive than Backblaze b2.

But worth me looking into at some point though if I get too annoyed with b2's cli tool! Thanks.

I wanted to use, but when you get into storing terabytes its actually incredibly pricey.

This was brought on by me wishing services like backblaze and AWS offered just....disk...accessible through ssh/scp/ftp etc, rather than a funky protocol.

Me: Oh, you use a cloud-VM for your backups?
Friend: Yeah, <this one>, I opted for the 100GB disk.

Me: Your backups are less than 100GB....oh you sweet summer child.

I probably wouldn't say this is the case for /every/ trans person.

But for me, I can't help but assume every slightly-too-long look in the street is because they're trying to figure out what I am.


If someone is staring at a trans person, it doesn’t matter how pretty or ‘passing’ or whatever people consider them to be, the trans person will assume they’re being read as the person they were before.


Finally put all of my photos onto my new home server - drives went from 50GB used to well over 600GB.

That backblaze bill is gonna go up.....

@dadegroot I wanted another body for a while and thought I could make do with the D3300 - but it just makes me realise what I love about the more enthusiast/pro body!

Proud of myself because I understood a terrible German joke.

Not to mention that the D3300 body feels like it'll shatter if I drop it.

Whereas the D7100 would probably just dent the ground.

It also has a really, really, sucky AutoFocus system compared to the D7100.

The 3300 is a good camera. And using all my good glass with it makes it pretty identical in image quality to the D7100.

But it lacks all the physical controls on the body, and I miss those a lot when doing 'work' photos.

The more I use my D3300 for events, the more I just want another D7100/D7200 instead.

@ami Too many of my games came from humble bundle - I stopped the emails from them because I just couldn't play them all.

@dadegroot Both my Nikons also have MicroHDMI - which I'm fine with, even if it is a pain to find cables for.

Can't plug MicroHDMI into a computer though :(
