Yoga days. Day 21.

Shanka Prakshalana, intestinal cleansing with salt water. So I've been wanting to try this for some time. Wasn't too nervous, much less nervous than trying vamana dhauti for the first time, but it took a while!!! Was getting pretty tired from the 4 asana that move the water through the digestive system and as I expected with my slow digestion it took some time, everyone else had finished but I stuck at it. Got a bit bloated there for a little!!! Things moved on the 16th glass. Ahh the relief of us all when the 'gates' opened !!!!!
Ended up drinking 35 glasses or about 8 - 9 l of salt water but could perhaps has stopped at 28-30. Anyway I good a really good cleanse. Felt fantastic afterword, just like having a fast for a day or 2 with a big added benefit that it gives the whole digestive system and clean and rest. Then only dal mixed with rice and a little butter for all meals during the rest of the day.

I'd recommend this to anyone wanting to give their digestive system a reset. A lot of care should be taken with the preparation of the salt water, doing the asana correctly and then eating to correct food for the next 2-3 days.  It seems to have helped my digestion become a little more balanced . Any questions welcome.

I was never able to find a Thunderbolt case for a reasonable price. But I only looked online. I've found USB 3 to be fast enough for booting a system. Don't know if it would add noticeable delays if accessing samples being triggered in real time.

I'd buy a bare Samsung Pro SSD from Amazon and put it in an external Thunderbolt 3 case—not easy to find.
Akibakan may have some cases.

I think the boss got lucky and they'd already refunded her money minus 20% cancellation fee before they declared bankruptcy, according to her card company.

Macintosh / External SSD for Logic Pro
« Last post by Morgan Fisher on March 28, 2017, 06:18:45 PM »
I am just  upgrading to Logic Pro X (the Apple music software) which I believe has about 30Gb of samples with it.

I just read online that putting the sample library on an external drive can be a good idea. In this way, while recording using the sample library (i.e. playing those samples from a MIDI keyboard, as opposed to recording from a mike) the samples would be read from the external SSD while the performance is being written to my 2013 Retina MacBook Pro's internal SSD. This would be less of a load than doing the reading/writing simultaneously on the internal SSD.

It would also be handy as (hopefully) I could use the same external sample library on my iMac, when I need to.

Sorry to be so long-winded, but my main question is: which make of external thunderbolt SSD to buy and where to get the best deal? I am thinking 500Gb or 1Tb.

Cheers,

Morgan

Macintosh / Best Large Capacity HDD for Back Up?

I have two 3TB drives I use for TM and CCC back up copies, but I'm starting to run out of space. What are the current capacities available and which store/brand in Aki is best to purchase?

TIA,

Thanks.   Do you notice anything different?  If not maybe I will wait.

The Çarrier Update is a small piece of code that the carrier uses to add/remove carrier-specific functions to the OS that are usually hidden from the user.
