Last weekend saw me at QPR v Bolton Wanderers, always enjoy my visits, however I do wish that they were a little more flexible with photographer positions.

Gives You Wings


Red Bull does it, apparently some lady hygiene products do it and now I do it, Yep I’ve given my Desktop machine Wings. Having a couple of  256Gb SSD sitting around doing nothing seemed a bit of a waste, but seeing that all of my hard drive slots (plus one of the optical drive slots) were filled with spinning disks, with the exception of the boot up disk, i got in touch with my current supplier of all things Mac related, Create Pro and they suggested that I install a PCIe card with space for 2x SSDs.

The main reason for wanting to re-use these SSDs was a) well they hadn’t been used much, b) it seemed a waste of money not to, c) Photoshop & Lightroom are greatly speeded up if you have fast scratch disks.

So all installed, not tested in anger yet, but certainly has speeded up the access to my Archive in Lightroom.

The one that I opted for is the Angel Wings X2 (Yay even better than Wings they’re X-Wings) £155 inc VAT & Delivery.


Brentford v Preston North End

Brentford v PNE 077

Damned that was wet, again. A 1-1 draw in the rain, did I mention that it was wet? Anyway the kit is in the airing cupboard, again!  Can’t wait until the weather improves…

Fulham v Nottingham Forest

Fulham v NFFC 041

Damned that was wet, cold & wet. Fulham ran out winners in the end, the first half & the beginning of the second half looked a little like a “defend & attack” training session. Time to chuck myself & the kit into the tumble dryer methinks.
