The raster files I work with are anywhere between 100 and 500mb in size, quite often I'll have two or three loaded at once while I'm panning around the map (these are county wide aerial photography photos)



XP Pro & Vista (the optional OS) also have 64 bit versions which will support up to 128gb of RAM. It doesn't say if it's 32 or 64 in the specs, but I'd try to get the 64 bit versions from them.

How many files do you have to keep and for how long? Also, how much room do you have now and how much Free Space is left?

Well, I never delete anything I do because as soon as I do some jackass wanders back and says, remember that map you made 4 years ago. I need that again. So I just save em all. The way the program works is it basically just creates links to the data so each project file is relatively small, it's the data that gets linked to that can be quite large, and that's mainly the raster stuff that's huge. I have 500gb of storage now and it's enough, but barely. I'd prefer 1TB of HD space and is probably what I'll do. Maybe even just go with that 500gb and partition it in half for OS and miscellaneous scaffolding on one and Projects on the other, then get a 1.5 and partition it for Raster and Vector Data. I likey the sound of that.

I just realized that with this purchase (and the Wellington Zin), it kicked Zin to be the top varietal in my cellar:

Zinfandel (42 bottles & 16 pending, 11.39%)
Red Bordeaux Blend (56 bottles, 11.00%)
Petite Sirah (55 bottles, 10.81%)
Cabernet Sauvignon (42 bottles & 1 pending, 8.45%)
Red Blend (42 bottles & 1 pending, 8.45%)
Syrah (31 bottles, 6.09%)
Red Rhone Blend (21 bottles, 4.13%)
Sangiovese (20 bottles, 3.93%)
White Blend (19 bottles, 3.73%)
Tempranillo (14 bottles & 3 pending, 3.34%)

And Bordeaux only just edged out PS with the Victory purchase.

Are you going to go in on this one? I've got 2 or 3 bottles at home with your name on them. If you were to go in on this we could do trade-sies, she says hopefully. Or I could just keep holding your wine indefinitely... whatever.

Did you want more than one rose or tri? I would be content with just two, but wouldn't cry if I ended up with three ;)

Did you decide if you're coming to Napa on the 7th or doing that silly girl on girl thing??

Argh, we have synchronized cats! I just made a small piece of yummy sourdough toast, turned my back for 5 seconds, and there he is, licking the butter off my toast. Which was sorely needed sustenance (for me not the cat) after spending 5 hours at the DMV (that's the usual wait time, ime)

That's it. I've had a hella difficult month, with 2 weeks left to go. I'm going here for dinner and it better be good. I've never been here before, but my Italian friends swear by the place. And some are joining me for dinner.

Gary is hanging out on ustream live right now.
It's working now. This is the wine. CT here. A steal for $23.33 and free shipping. And it's supposed to kick you to a WL cart, with a special cinderella coupon code. You can use the searcher code but it looks like you don't need it.

It was actually better than I expected. Nice little mom and pop place. Clean, pleasant atmosphere without being cute.

I ordered Pasta Henrietta: broccoli and tomatoes sauteed with garlic, olive oil, served with pasta and cheese. Very fresh, the pasta was perfectly cooked.

The antipasto was served undressed, with dressings on the side. A homemade ranch (aghast! I know, but a well done home-made one and catering to the wee ones) and proper Italian dressing. The ingredients were so fresh, not prepackaged; I've seen better presentation, but this was good.

Everyone else loved their meal, the garlic bread was eh.

This place was a "do again". I'm grateful for a well prepared and tasty meal that I did not have to craft.

It's back again. And that is quite a price cut from his normal price. WL has it listed for $49.98 and they're selling it for 23.33, though you gotta buy 3 of them for free shipping.

Nope, 1 bottle gives free shipping. Doesn't matter, it kicks you to a WL cart and you can use the searcher code anyway. See my edit above.

Whatever you want, I'm sure it'll pop up at least once more and I'll have had a chance to try it by then.

Umm, haven't heard about dodgeball so maybe I'll just assume I can't go and will join y'all in Napa. Soochee mention any group size restrictions? I'll probably try to drag along a couple people per usual.

OK, guilty pleasure admission time. Watching Two and a Half Men last night with DW, there was a scene where one of the characters poured a couple glasses of wine. I swear the label on one of the bottles was Monkey Prize. If I can get a screen cap I'll post it. Can anyone confirm?

Dude... wait, what?
