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

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...

Test results: It still works wonderfully, with a few issues. As this is a BetaTesting phace, issues and bugs are expected. 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

You would think after all these years, either company would have fixed the damned problem of Wacom drivers not loading on boot up, and a quick easy way to load the drivers when you get the dreaded "TABLET DRIVER NOT FOUND" (yes, I have already done the Services/Local Services/Stopped and...

I periodically check bookmarks/links to see if they are still 'live'. One of the sites I visited had MalWareBytes web protection block it. I have it, on occasion, wrongly block a site, so I 'whitelisted' the site, and reloaded it. What I got was a rather official looking Microsoft page... Continue reading

I decided to try out Trillian IM on web browser. Facebook threw a shit-fit, and not only logged me out, but forced me to change my password AGAIN (just did it last month because I dared to login on my friggin' laptop instead of desktop) even though I did verify... Continue reading

After the crap we went through with the last clique-y camera club, including the president of it showing up at my door, uninvited, to threaten and intimidate me, threatening me with public humiliation by expelling us during a club meeting unless we voluntarily quit. So, oddly enough, the last thing... Continue reading

My S7 has a glitch, a known one, without one apparent cause or cure. It also affects S7 Edge. The phone will turn the lock screen on all by itself. After a few seconds it will shut off. And this glitch is rather draining on the battery life. I have... Continue reading

Earlier this year, I bought a CD (used) on Amazon, as it was listed in "VERY GOOD" condition. 1: It was flagged by AQIS, opened, inspected, foreign substance on outside of the CD case tested. 2: The CD playing surface was covered in dings and scratches. 3: Piss poorly packed,... Continue reading

Ever since I got the new motherboard and CPU installed, got the computer back up and running, I have been hammering away at little things. Soundblaster Wireless headset not working - Alan and I kept working on it, no joy. So I bought a new wired headset, but before tossing... Continue reading

And reading a bit more, I figured I would play around some more to get the old bluetooth dongle to work. I followed on help site, but Windows kept trying to install many "Bluetooth Peripheral Devices".. over and over. So, instead of trying to find hardware specific driver, I found... Continue reading

If you make laws regarding guns, only law abiding gun owners would adhere to them. Criminal won't. You can use this (non)logic in regards to any and all laws. Drunk driving is illegal, the majority of people follow the law. A few don't. Does that mean you strike the law... Continue reading

I have been testing the beta version of the Pulse camera remote. And with the exception of a few things, I haven't found anything not to like. Started off rocky, as mine arrived a bit earlier than expected, and the web page for it with instructions and links to the... Continue reading
