I took three of my recorders to Malaysia in January. At the small end, a Zoom H2n (very small with alternate patterns, can place anywhere) and a Zoom F1 field recorder (my favourite little recorder for lavalier mics pinned to clothing, but can also use interchangeable microphone capsules with different...

My thought was a currawong, but it might be a magpie.
Very nice photograph. Especially the four eyes.

It's time I experimented with loading some sound files instead of photographs. I will decrease the quality a bit so they are not huge uploads, but this might mean turning the sound up to hear the files. First attempt - solving the great mystery of the Cotter River moving recorder.... Continue reading

Very nice photos of original PRESTAGS map and counters.
The Gandalf staff was a lifesaver. As it turned out, the twisty exercise was good for my old knees.

Shot #5 is excellent. Hover in motion, great colour, great bokeh.

One of the few times you were approached by a woman. Period.
Good shots capturing the movement and action.
I've done that - at work. Reminds me of Python and his open fly post one FMW at Kingston. At least a polite lady brought it to his attention.

All excellent shots. Even the boss liked them.

Excellent shot of the caterpillar. I have added a shot of the effort you went to.
Unfortunately you have been summoned to higher duties!
Saturday morning after a long stressful week. A treat breakfast is warranted. Grilled cheese on Greek bread. Mozzarella on the top half, cheddar on the bottom. A sprinkle of black pepper and dried basil. Continue reading

With every passing week, I fear martyrdom may be our fate. I hope we will be as brave as St Maurice and the Theban Legion. Happy Name Day. I hope you do something special.
Happy name day to Python! Today is the Feast Day of Saint Maurice and Companions. Maurice was an officer of the Theban Legion. There are two things that set this legion apart from other Roman legions of the time. First, the high number of legionnaires, and second it was made... Continue reading

Where did you get this from? The blocks are nice. The Captive Queen card looks like Thygo. Definitely PPWW fare.
I got some snippets of Sir Lance today, but he is mostly eluding me.
Last night was part of the mooncake festival and I was allowed to have duck. Duck is one of the special foods for the festival: The mooncake festival marks the end of the autumn harvest, and is held on the 15th day of the 8th month of the lunar calendar... Continue reading

Bad Paul had another GAS attack and acquired the Tascam DR-70D 6 input / 4 track / multi-track field recorder. It is now a great price, less than $400 and less than half what it was when it first came out 5 years ago. Super capabilities for a ridiculous low... Continue reading
