We also keep a desktop digital microscope handy for inspecting damage and sometimes reading things like chip identification.
    Cell phones are really handy for things like that. reading serial numbers on refrigerators, HVAC systems, etc when you need to order parts. I was at the jewelry shop getting a present for my wife. So I took photos of the jewelry selections to review later. Shopping lists, serial numbers on parking meters to pay by charge, the list goes on and on. Really great for tags in the dark, behind or under the unit, or too small to read easily.

    The "safer" things in their blog/press release now implies what I suspected. Got this in my email. The blog mentions how they do not outsource moderation and their multiple means to detect CSAM, etc...

    I never understood the offsite storage thing. I suspect one cubic meter in oneís home could hold a billion digital images.
    Me? Iím short on space so Iím taking my best matted images to someone I met at the park once, says has a place to store them. Iím sure they will be safe...

    In terms of the Flicker policy, I’m not smart enough to understand it, but maybe it means one has to pay to post porn. Per CEO ‘sexe all evil’ (anagram)

    not porn, anything they don't consider "Acceptable to a global, public audience", so even stuff you'd find in national geographic.

    I;ve made slide shows of family pictures and gave them to my daughter. Initially a few years ago, I used DVD's and would give her two copies. Now I copied them onto memory cards which work better with her new computers and will connect to show on her smart TV with a USB connector. Of course, I keep backup on external drives that automatically backup every other day.

    Also, I back up data but keep that on my external drives as well but don't give those to anyone else. I would be in trouble with data backup if the house burned down. So I'm thinking of cloud storage using Amazon Prime.
