All, one thing I have picked up from this group is that it is a very small community. I am not a big believer in recreating the wheel. I was recently fired from my job (unjustly I believe). The good news is that it is forcing me to do what I always wanted to do, which is to start eDiscovery Maine, LLC offering ediscovery and trial tech services. I agree with Robb that we should do what we are good at and outsource what we are not good at. To that end, I would like to have conversations with members offering services to see if we can create relationships that benefit us both. Let's connect!! All my best, Rick.

Hey Robb, Great videos so far. I was looking at the back up videos and noticed that you indicated you were using an SSD drive and a Thunderbolt cable for your physical backup. I am not sure what a Thunderbolt cable is other than it is used for an Iphone. When I am looking for an SSD hard drive, do I need one that is specifically set up to work with a Thunderbolt cable, or are they all compatible?

Good afternoon all, In my recent trial, I ran into a situation where my attorney insisted on naming video clips with a number prefaced by a series of letters, i.e. CMF001 (Clip, first name, last name). I am not great at the keyboard and was using OnCue software. I realize I could have changed the names to something simpler but that would have resulted in duplicate clip names. In case you don't know, in OnCue you need to press X then the exhibit number, e.g. X1, XP1, XD1, etc, to display your exhibits. As I did not want to be hunting and pecking during the trial I found a solution that worked well for me, a USB keypad that had a few keys that were programmable. I used the Penclic keypad that had three programable keys. I programmed one to be the X key, I programed the other to be XCMF; and programmed the third to be another X and another exhibit code (XCJF) thus I could work almost entirely off the keypad without having to resort to a back and forth between the keyboard and the keypad. I guess a simpler solution is to learn how to type well, but I will save that for another day.
