      those noctilucent clouds really are something to behold if you get a chance to see them.

      bought a SATA USB adapter, it allows you to acces your old hard drive like its an external hard drive so hopefully should be ok.

      The green flash that is sometimes associated with a rising or setting sun. It makes a lovely bright green flash.
