Now that summer is approaching, our travel and leisure time away from all the hustle and activities of school, and sports are upon us. This time of year, before the dog days of summer and heat, are the best time in Austin to explore your city.
If you haven’t checked out the National Park IMax movie at the Bob Bullock Museum you need to put it on your list. The Bullock also has a nice photographic exhibit on Big Bend. It is always interesting to see what other travelers and hikers see that you missed.
In Austin, there are many new street art murals popping up. We have some very talented artists in our city and they need to be documented before they are defaced.
Here is a quick guide to some of the more famous sites. Infographic courtesy of the freepeople blog.
I found this one on Comal and 4th.
Take you phone, lock the focus, and expose for the wall not the light behind it.
Stayed tuned for more tips on taking street art in the next blog. Join us in June for photo editors and photo storage classes.
Our IT Tech made a very concise summary for the upgrade. Do you want to install on top of an existing version “dirty” version or do you want to start from scratch or “clean install”. Check our Carl Pingry’s findings. Thanks for the info.
Doing a free clean upgrade on an eligible system can be done two ways:
1. Do a clean reinstall of the current system and then run the free Win 10 upgrade.
2. Run the free Win 10 upgrade on the current dirty system then do a reinstall from media of a clean Win 10.
I think #2 is preferable because one doesn’t have to be concerned with finding media, keys, drivers and possible updates for the old system.
Also one might want to run the “dirty” Win 10 for a while to see if the upgrade cleaned up a significant number of the old problems before going through the onerous task of reinstalling your applications.
Join us on Aug. 27th at 10 am to see the new features on Windows 10. I can tell you the browser is blazing fast and Cortana is pretty fun to work with. www.agecomputer.org
