In Topic: Whos made the switch from PC to Mac?

I switch from PC to MAC 2 years ago. I changed due to MAC is better with graphics then PC. MAC is more stable and reliable. If I had to changed back to PC, I would give up computing.

The best solution is laying over in PR is: DON'T. American Airlines sucks as an airline. If you read the travel booklet for Bonaire, it even states that loss or stolen equipment is very high in PR.

In Topic: Travel Warning: Don't Pack a Pelican

I sympathize with you. I had my uw photo equipment stolen in PR also. I did the exact same thing you did. Packed a pelican case with TSA locks. We had an 8 hour layover before our hop to Bonaire. When we arrived, I noticed the locks were missing. Upon picking up the case it was clear what had happened. The case was quite light. Upon opening the case was empty. I was carring an Olympus 8080, Ikelite housing and 2 Ikelite strobes. I made notification to someone in Bonaire, which was to no use. When we arrived back in Newark, I spoke to the lost luggage personnel. I was told that it was not their problem. Luckily I had Dive Assure travel insurance. After filling out the mountain of paperwork, I was compensated by both Dive Assure and the TSA. The moral of the story is CARRY ON ANY ELECTRONICS OR PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT.

In Topic: Newbie Rigs: What camera system did you buy?

As a new UW photographer I wanted to start off right. Several of my friends have the Sea & Sea cameras, housings, and lights. I thought would buy what I could afford. I ended up with the Sea & Sea setup, DX-2G camera / housing, YS -110a duel strobes, and arms. Now I have to learn all of this. I am still trying to learn UW video also. Maybe too much on my plate?
