Not too sure where you are but if you have a look at XCWeather and click on the Visibility tab you may find it useful. As said mist is very difficult to predict and can be very local based on the terrain and nearby features. The Dew Point temperature is quite important as it's relationship...
When you say 'switch it off' do you mean with the power button on the front or at the plug socket? I leave the power on to my iP8750 (baby compared with your) but always turn it off with the power button.
I found that page as well, BB. Was looking at the last item that seems to say the printer needs a service. It would be interesting to know if the OP has his connected by USB or wi-fi. If USB I would try another cable.
I'm not too up on the photography side of things but I do know a little bit about the mechanics of converting garages to living spaces/offices. It sounds to me as if the garage in question is separate from the house and will probably have only single skin brickwork walls or concrete panel walls...
OK, had my tripod for a couple of days now so I thought I would post my observations.
The tripod is well made as has been said being all metal with no plastic parts. The rubber feet are good but there is no sign of the spikes that are mentioned in Amazon's description.
The legs do not have...
I would be interested to know whether the legs have stops at the 'normal' and 'low level' positions or is this hit and miss. I assume the tension of the leg hinges is adjusted with the included hex spanner.
The Amazon weight figures do not match the figures in the Product Description panel. Amazon say legs support 44lbs (20kg) and ball head 4.4lbs (2kg) whereas the PD panel shows legs 80kg and ball head 5kg.
Plenty of info on t'internet but clouds are normally suspended in the atmosphere at altitude whereas fog/mist in usually suspended water droplets near the ground. Did the air temperature get warmer as you climbed upwards?
This article may be of interest: https://www.drivereasy.com/knowledge/computer-wont-wake-up-from-sleep-windows-10/ particularly from the point of updating ALL drier and the 'Sleep Timer' issue mentioned in Fix 5.
I am off to the IOW in a couple of weeks and certainly plan to check out the south coast thereof. However, knowing my luck it will be cloudy and tipping down with rain for the duration - you have been warned! :grumpy:
If you live in a reasonably modern house it is quite surprising how much the suspended floor moves even two bedrooms away. Try putting a glass of water on the floor and get the kids to jump about as before and watch for the ripples.
I have a Leki Sierra Photo Monopod and have never been challenged on the 'no tripods or monopods' rule. Helps if you feign a slight limp whilst using it! :naughty:
