    Your drive setup

    I have been away from the scene for a while now and back then, it was a best practice to put OS on its own drive and other high IO things like VM's on another drive. Is this still applicable with modern SSD's? I'm about to assemble a new desktop build and I already have one 500gb Samsung 850...

    The difference between 'cheap' and 'expensive' lens filters

    I picked up a D3100 a few weeks back, and bought this UV filter. $10, nice and cheap. I don't anticipate using the kit lens too often.
