    If you have the money and will get use from it then I'd go for it, the EP2 is a great body, I'd also get black for street photography.
    Yeah the EP2 is only $230 on Amazon body only, and it's black.

    So, wait, you just found that just now?
    Guessing you're now in the process of designing either a wine cellar or a mancave.
    We knew we had a cellar but we didn't know it extended that far (walled in).

    Round. Learn how bokeh works.

    I don't know about you, but personally I find the idea of being able to edit a photo again in the future nice, but I never actually follow up on it. The version that hits flickr will almost always be the last time I bother to edit it.

    So losing my drive with all my photos would initially suck, but then I'd realise that it isn't as important as it superficially appears, because all my final edits will be on flickr anyway.

    Heh, there's no data recovery services around town and I've lost lots of important data too. Right now my best bet is a day old deleted backup.

    Flickr should let you upload the RAW files alongside the images. Then it could bill itself as an archival tool alongside being a photo-sharing network. Give you download all options and the like. I would gladly pay for this.

    You should really invest into getting two drives and putting them in RAID 1 next time you're shopping for parts, then.
    No negativity implied. Just saying.

    I dump everything on two external hard drives. One is the working drive which will be actively accessed and moved around. The other one is simply a copy of the other, not to be used or moved unless backing up photos to it.

    Seeing as terabytes of external hard drive space is pretty cheap now, it's a pretty viable method of photo storage.

    I'm getting a 2TB disk, and I did find two hard drive recovery places. Ideally I'd get another 1TB external HDD, and just swap between backing up on each so I always have a backup if a backup fails.

    I know. But there seem to be more complex patterns than just a circle.

    Why do you guys think you have to be near-/shortsighted to do this? Anyone can do it. It's just a matter of being able to focus your eyes - both - you have muscles around your eye. Use them.

    If you can backup to a 1TB external then I dont really see a reason not to have 2 1TB internals in a configuration that makes any data you put in one be mirrored in the other.

    The laptop idea might work if this bad one, well, works!

    Currently it has Ubuntu One on it, seems to work alright so far. Maybe I can post a few every so often.

    I really wish Facebook would understand that a link to a Flickr picture is a picture, and that when you posted it it showed it as a real picture and when you clicked on it it loaded the picture on it's lightbox thingy instead of redirecting people to the flickr page.
    I can't stand how much Facebook compresses and resizes my stuff, yet I want my friends to see my pictures and 70% don't have a Flickr and won't click on the link because, hey, it's a link and not a picture you can just view on lightbox.
