Photos is not iPhoto

I just learned the hard way that Apple Photos is NOT iPhotos. After spending many hours rearranging and organizing old family photos I find out that the Slideshow export
1. doesn’t use the order I have
2. doesn’t let me specify the size of the JPEGs

What’s more, later versions of iPhoto also changed/got rid of features I used in iPhoto 6, making them equally useless for exporting a slideshow.
Fortunately, I have an old Mac G4 tower running iPhoto 6 so I’ll be able to do the job. Unfortunately, I have many hours of work ahead.

Not updating to the latest version – too much to lose

Just as I have not updated my iMac to the latest OS, because in doing so I would lose several key applications that I rely on, I feel equally strongly about not updating some website programs to php 7.4. If the app works, and has been heavily customized over the years, then the very real possibility of having to do all the customization over again just to be running the “latest” is something I’m choosing to pass on until absolutely necessary.

Hawker Sea Fury is a Focke-Wulf Fw 190 copy

Watching a YouTube video of a Hawker Sea Fury I immediately thought, “That looks like a Focke-Wulf 190!” – turns out it is.

On 23 June, 1942, Luftwaffe Pilot Oberleutnant Arnim Faber erroneously landed his Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-3 fighter at RAF Pembrey, apparently having mistaken this airfield for a Luftwaffe channel coast airfield. The British were thereby presented with a working example of the Fw 190 fighter, which had been giving the RAF an extremely difficult time. The Hawker Fury design was a direct result of the examination of Faber’s Fw 190A-3. Examination of Faber’s aircraft was largely responsible for the preparation of Specification F.6/42, which called for a new, high-performance fighter.
