And for the life of me, I can't figure out why there was so much antipathy in regards to it. The script was a bit weak, but the acting was excellent. The FX didn't dominate the movie. Was it great? No, but it was very enjoyable. I loved the tribute... Continue reading

About return mailing of Absentee Ballots. Oh hello! I haven't even received mine yet, so I sent an email to the registrar in the state I am registered to vote in as to when I will be receiving it. They aren't being mailed out until Sept 24th. Whohuhwha? Let's do... Continue reading

Had to go back early because of the dressing springing a 'leak' from people poking, patting or pushing on it. (It's that cosmic rule, if any part of your body is hurt or injured, it becomes a magnet for being touched or poked) It was 'fixed' on Tuesday, but had... Continue reading

I like Capture One photo editing software. It's a great RAW editor, with a lot of tools. However, it tended to be very slow and clunky, even with a high end computer. The current version I had was 9.2.1. There was update to 9.3, so I downloaded and installed it.... Continue reading

Told nurse what happened, and what Wing did at home with what we had, then going to pharmacy, getting post op bandages, and 'patching it'. I Lifted shirt and she chuckled "That's one leak that will never happen again!" (he had over done the bandaging but I sort of knew... Continue reading

I am selling a not quite 2yr old Lumix 100-300 lens, that is in mint condition, because I have Kipon EF to MFT adapter and now use my canon 70-300 L on my Olympus EM1. I might have used the lens 3 or 4 times, has $110 high end UV... Continue reading

Last year, Trance went into total panic mode when we brought her into for physical and vaccinations. So, to save her the panic, we scheduled to have the vets come out here for her. They said "Well, we can do all the cats' exams at the same time." They just... Continue reading

Had surgical wound checked by Dr A with Dr H in attendance. It's a bit redder than expected, and not quite as healed up as Dr A expected. Then I fessed up about someone grabbing me by the shoulder (yes, that one) then hugging me around it, and then Wing... Continue reading

Do you ever want to hunt down whoever is answering your tech support question and smack em upside the head because they aren't actually reading what you put in the support request? Summation: My Windows 7Pro 64bit desktop has the AverMedia H727 HDMI 3D card, and it has its own... Continue reading

Early this morning, Wing and I headed out for a #CanonCollective Event, Whale Watching on the Rottnest Express. I ‘suited up’ with the padding the Doc gave me, got camera, lens, spare battery, wet weather coat just in case, and headed out. Spotted Humpback Whales and the captain of the... Continue reading

Wound has healed/filled in to depth of 6 to 8mm. Hole diameter still the same. It's been re bandaged, and I go back in a week. Told Dr. A about up coming Whale watching, and how I needed to wear bra properly. Wound dressing has extra of a slightly stronger... Continue reading

So I decided to buy a movie, HD, of course. Little did I know that I would be forced to play it in the iTunes video player. Oh well, fine, do what I have to do. Then, I got this cute gem: if I wanted to play it full screen... Continue reading

That would be this coming Friday. The hole over my scapula is healing nicely. The surgical wound was at the beginning 4x2cms, 3cms deep. It is now a hair over 2cm diameter end to end, and about 1cm deep. I have been taking photos to track the healing progress. The... Continue reading

Last Friday, I had a ruptured epidermoid cyst bigger than a golf ball removed from my back, over the shoulderblade. The follow up care/treatment was rather painful but necessary. My left arm has been rather useless as any movement hurts. I've had it in a sling to reduce the shock... Continue reading

To all the ones thinking they're 'mansplaining' things to me, in a very overt browbeating manner; rethink your methods. Insults, condescension, derision and misogynistic comments to, as if I am such a 'delicate flar' (say it with a southern accent) not wise in the ways of the world, puts your... Continue reading

The Orico USB 3 3.5” sata drive enclosure arrived today. Unplugged the MediaSonic enclosure, dismantled it, and removed the hdd from it. Put it in the Orico, sealed it up, plugged everything in. Computer discovered it, loaded new drivers for the new enclosure. Drive was momentarily visible in Explorer…. then... Continue reading

Wing and I headed down to York, W.A. for a #CanonCollective Event, Astro-photography and some street photography. The weather didn’t play nice, and it was questionable whether or not we would have clear skies for shooting the Milkyway. We ordered some food, and it took a long long time to... Continue reading

I tried to login to Wacom site, as I have had an account there since my Bamboo tablet. I kept getting invalid login. I tried different passwords, and still kept getting invalid passwords. So, I clicked on the "Forgot Password" link and waited. Nothing. Waited some more. Still nothing. So,... Continue reading

My "Lady Jayne" hairbrush handle cracked. I have a hair tie holding together right now. I have been looking for another one but it seems that the brush designs have changed. I called Lady Jayne company, and was put through to a very nice woman, Christine. I explained the situation,... Continue reading

But they won't support their products if you were unfortunate enough to buy them. During the 'Hard drive Disasters' of a few months ago, Seagate sent me back a replacement hard drive without the enclosure (that's another story of crappy support, but I digress), so I ordered one from PC...

Cameras used - Canon 5D3, Canon 7D2 HDR exposures - Perfect Long Exposure - Perfect Time Lapse - Function perfect, but with a bug Single Exposure - Function perfect,... Continue reading

And I am annoyed. Wing and I went to Snooze to get a new mattress for Alan, as he has springs coming out of it. We ordered it and were told it would be delivered on Thursday, today. So, I waited around today, blowing off a photoshoot in Fremantle. I... Continue reading
