I spoke at the May 2017 meeting regarding bootable OS's from a USB flash drive.

I carry these USB flash drives with me. So when the occasion arises, I have a personalized, secure, bootable operating system.

Before the crash, I had posted a procedure whereby Windows 10 could be installed on a portable flashdrive. This is not the same article, but it does include Windows 10 in its array of compatible versions: (second paragraph down)

Copied and pasted from the article - "What Is Windows To Go?

Windows To Go allows you to install a fully-functional Windows 10/8.1/8 operating system onto an external hard drive or a USB flash drive. This makes your USB a portable Windows environment, similar to a Linux distro that is designed to run from a USB. With Windows To Go you can carry the live Windows system anywhere and use it on any computer."

It also includes Windows 8 and 8.1.  Some people are still on 8/8.1, although it makes much more sense to be up to Windows 10 by this time.

Towards the bottom of the article there is also a reference to WinToUSB, which clearly references various versions of Windows 10:  http://www.easyuefi.com/wintousb/

You get Affinity for the iPad for $19.99.

I now have Affinity installed on my new 2017 iPad Pro 12.9. My learning now begins...

They do have a lot of tutorial videos online.

Alan, Is it possible that the streaming is live during the day and recorded playback at night? This is the first time that I have viewed the above three websites at night, as I thought there would be nothing to see in the darkness. I was quite surprised to see illuminated imagery. During the day, however, the Sun seems to be in approximate sync with the time, especially at sunset. Avila Beach is Surfline also. When you click to full screen, a brief message states that you are on Surfline.com.

It does look like they are live streaming during the day and post up a daylight recording at night. I have found some interesting things going on at the top of the Inn at Avila Beach (via SurfLine) at night!!!

Regarding the SnapPower nightlight:  It is certainly a clever and interesting idea, but I have tried a variety of nightlights in my home to help keep me from falling at night, and they are all less expensive and easier to use than the SnapPower.
They all are easily replaced when needed, and they all simply need to be plugged into an outlet. For vacations or even very short term shut offs, you just need to switch off or unplug them.  I have had my best success with those that do not use bulbs that burn out and have to be replaced.  I prefer ones that turn off when very low light levels appear.

Three more very nice views.


Cayucos Pier from the Shoreline Inn: http://www.cayucosshorelineinn.com/beach-cam.php

Piedras Blancas Lighthouse and environs:  http://www.piedrasblancas.org/webcam.html

From the Inn at Avila Beachhttp://hotelsavilabeach.com/

These are not live streams but recordings. My links are live streams.

I am also a subscriber to http://www.surfline.com/ I use this app on my iPhone and iPad many times throughout the day. I use to have a subscription to outdoortheatre which sold out to Surfline. My membership was moved over to Surfline. I was also grandfathered in for a 50% lifetime rate of $34.95/year (Normally $69.99). This gives me access to many live cameras in HD, full screen and without ads. I am also able to download past 10 minute streams from different days.

General Discussion / Affinity - Photo Editing Software

Hello All,

I just purchased the photo editing software program, Affinity from https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/
It bills itself as an alternative to Adobe Photoshop.  At $49.99 total price, not subscription, I found it to be quite useful.
One particularly intriguing feature is Focus Merge, allowing you to take a series of similar images with different points of focus and
combine them into a single image that chooses the sharpest area of each image and uses it for the composite image.

It offers separate Windows and MAC versions.  Video at https://vimeo.com/194672406

I am eager to explore additional capabilities of this product.
