curse your coreaudio

A plague on all your houses core audio. A plague I say!

My recent system update that pushed me to OS 10.7.4 brought with it an array of issues connected to the system process CoreAudio. It began with no longer registering the presence of speakers when woken from sleep, and evolved into not every recognizing the internal hardware. After reseting my PRAM, repairing permissions, clearing log files, system maintenance, plist editing, and a litany of other maneuvers, it was resetting the SMC (System Management Controller) that finally did the trick.

If you also happen to be experiencing this same issue – start up chime, but no system sound – this might also be the solution for you.

Photo Shoot

Tonight is another photo shoot. Gwynne Flanagan and I will be taking pictures of her tangled in fabric suspended over the ground for two hours. I never would have guessed that I would spend so much time taking photographs of circus. It was only a little over a year ago that I did my frist shoot with some circus friends, and now it’s shoot after shoot.
