6.8.2 (Mar 25, 2011)
I've used this for several years. It's updated more often than AutoPatcher, which I also use. Very good program for keeping many systems up to date and not needing high speed Internet.
1.7.0 (Aug 23, 2009)
Still doesn't support x64 versions of Windows. Come on Nikon, what's the hold up?!

Hahaha! I discovered today that it is incredibly easy to make 7.x series portable like 6.x used to be! I've been using Second Copy for a long time and I've yet to find another program that can create complex bi-directional syncs as easy as this program. I especially like the checkbox functionality for selecting files/folders to include/exclude. I've not found any other program that makes exclusions so easy. I also very much like the preview feature and the ability to delete emtpy folders on the source and destination option that were added to 7.x. So, naturally I wanted to run 7.x on my portable USB thumbdrive to take sync jobs with me to the job site. I copied the SecCopy folder to my USB drive and the hidden profiles.dat file from my user profile, edited the profiles.dat and added PerUserProfiles=0 under the [General] section and it works like charm. Detailed instructions here for those that are looking for an incredible portable sync solution! Enjoy!

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see a D3x with 20+mp to compete with Canon's 1DsIII in the studio professional's line of work, maybe released just prior to Photokina next year (as Nikon is known for). Really though, MP doesn't matter as much for a studio pro since they really need a bigger sensor for enlargements anyway, and they'd be more likely to shoot medium format like a Mamiya ZD 22MP.
If you think about it, the D300 pretty much has the highest pixel density out there for a digital SLR (maybe also the Canon 40D?). If you shoot wildlife or sports and want to really bring your subject in, the 1.5x DX factor is pretty big (a 400mm lens becomes a 600mm with no cropping after the fact). On a full size sensor, you wind up paying for more expensive glass (which is always better of course) or cropping those extra pixels out and losing density. If you use Nikon's 18-200mm DX lens, the D300 is really the camera for you since the D3 will drop to 5MP with a DX lens. Maybe Nikon will release an FX version of this beautiful lens to coincide with a future D3x? Then again, most pros that would purchase a D3 would have no use for anything but fast glass anyway (fixed apertures and prime lenses for the most part). The D300 has struck a really good balance for pros and prosumers alike.

I'm so thankful to hear your attitude. I voted independent last year becuase I didn't want to be responsible for another 4 years of Bush either, but neither could I vote for Kerry. Almost all my friends and family disowned me for "throwing away my vote", but I agree, there's no difference between the two major parties anymore. They are two wings of the same bird flying the wrong direction.
