if the laptop has any information about him or his accounts or logins, then the theft of the laptop could lead to identity theft and fraud. Dude didn't encrypt, so he's not a computer expert, so he's probably employed under false precincts, and should be fired.

it's false PRETENCES not precincts..
you are here under the false pretence you know what words mean ;)

Fuji's T-grain emulsion is superior to kodak.. as someone who has his City and Guilds(yeah.. that old) and who's first job was in photography... fuji t-grain FTW!

But it's color was garish.

one man's garish is another man's vivid.
for work with long focal length and tele-convertors I'd take t-grain over kodak film any day of the week bud ;) Also if you used their 600 film and uprated it to 3200 , popped on a soft focus filter and processed it as 3200 you got pastel portraits the easy way.. they were quite popular in the 80's

i remember when ilford fp400 was xp400! I worked at a govt Research place in Scotland and we had a GREAT set up and i got spoiled for kit between Nikon f3's, hassleblad's for medium format and the classic 5x4 tech cameras. With our studio being part of the maintainance building we had our own custom studio kit.
Then I joined the army as a photographer... the kit at the Joint School of [photography(Now the Defence School of Photography) at RAF Cosford was erm.. pretty fucking basic and the first month they issues you something s;lightly better than a box brownie.. i shit you not! Second month you got a nikon f3 and hassleblads cm550's again. I LOVED darkroom work. i am no setting up a home darkroom. It's just getting hold of a decent colour enlarger and a big ass black out blind for the kitchen and i'm sorted!

Just try to do no updates if you are using Windows 10 Home or Pro version (without pulling the network connection obviously)...

Good luck with that...

with that wee app you can hide any update that doesn't play well until micrsoshite fix their crap. it used to be built in built now it's not

I would blame what little success that Theranos enjoyed on Silicon Valley. But when it comes to the failure of Theranos, the culprit is simple: their business model was based on technology that doesn't exist.

I wonder if PT Barnum's family consider their infamous ancestor a failure...

not analogous at all really. lives weren't dependent on the result of the "thrill" people got from viewing Barnum's exhibits.
Lives were most certainly at risk from Holmes' bullshit
