Howdy everyone, just wanted to publicly thank Ralph Haseltine for being the nicest guy I have met in a long time. A couple of months ago he made an offer here on GG that he would recover data from memory cards or hard drives for GG members. He was serious. I just got my photos back from him and the only cost was the price of a replacement drive to load the crashed drive's data onto plus shipping. I had previously gotten an estimate from a well-known company for $1700 and had resigned myself to the loss of the data but now I am a happy man. Let me repeat. Ralph did it for free. Yep, he's my hero [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

Thank you Ralph, thank you thank you thank you.

PS; hopefully this will teach me to back up my data so I won't have to bother Ralph again... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

Even though we have never met. I have often instant messaged him in regards to issues that I have come accross. I have had technology questions, problems with models and needed support as to how to resolve it professionally. Having a friend and colleague to give new direction when I am lost is worth its weight in gold. I just hope he is not as big as I am, that might be alot of gold that I owe him and I dont have that much gold.

If its stuck, get a bigger hammer. If it gets broken, it needed replacing anyway.
The above is a quote from when I was in sales, selling Steiner and Great Dane Equipment. Hmm this might give you insight large Iowa farm boy turned photographer, lol. My John Deere is bigger then yours.

Dave, Glad the drives got there ok and that the images were for the most part all intact. Very kewl...been there and that is why I offer it up to anyone that has an issue...AND, this offer still stands for all GG members...if you run into bad memory cards, drives, etc. and need them recovered...just reach out to me and I will do all I can for you...no charge except for anything I have to do out of pocket, such as a new hard drive...cf cards I can put on DVD or CD and that costs me next to nothing so it costs you nothing...just my way of giving back to the community...

I also Second that!!

Ralph is the MAN!! I formatted three CF cards after a shoot, and again after another shoot. And he retrieved images from all 3 cards.

He did this free, and was so cool about it.


Guys, if you have a probelm with your CF cards or your hard drives.. Call him..

Cant tell you how great it was to get those images back.

Nice to regognize, I think he is a great guy myself, as we have exchanged emails and chatted a bit about life and photography and he seems to be a stand up guy.

Wouldn't it be nice if you sent him a nice present for saving your images AND $1700? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] that's if you have not already!
