A Bit of a Nightmare!

Weather wise Saturday turned out to be the mildest day of the month so far with the temperature reaching 11.4°C or  52.5°C. After some overnight rain, the heavy cloud never cleared away and it turned out to be our dullest day of the month too.
I spent most of Saturday working on the change over to my new computer. It's proving to be challenging to say the least.  The amount of time it takes copy from hard drive to portable hard drive and back to a new hard makes the process very tedious. Then of course things never quite go to plan or like that  YouTube demonstration. It appears so simple but doesn't turn out that way when you actually try to do it yourself.

So far I think I've sorted out my images although I've still another large batch to transfer. I've now attached my images  to the correct Abode Lightroom catalogue.

My weather station data has been transferred successfully but my weather station itself doesn't want to talk to my new computer for any length of time.  I keep getting a message saying USB connection lost and I've no idea why.

This blog is a bit of a test to see if I've got this part of my new system up and running. Here's a photo from our visit to RSPB Old Moor on Friday.
My first picture imported into Lightroom using my new computer. All I need to do now is sort out everything else. I may be sometime!


  1. Happy to see you can still blog. Once when copying data from one computer to another that way, the power went out and all was lost and needed to be started again. Do small bits and a lot of saves when you can. Here's to more power to you!

    1. I've finished up transferring data in small batches although I didn't intend to.

    2. the main thing is the data has been transferred sound good, both of you can now have a sigh of relief
