Topic Maybe Include info about how to resize pics for chat rooms
Posted 05 Nov 2015 00:58

Most overly large images are resized automatically (though some still cause problems). Of course, its always decent to chose images that are already within the chat dimensions (500pix across). There are heaps of programs that will easily resize your images, but the best option is to use Tumblr. Most images are already 500 pix wide and those that aren't, are 1280. Those that are 1280, you can simply change the _1280 in the image URL to _500 after pasting it in the dialog box before hitting enter and sending it to the room. Hope this helps.

I'm confused (nothing new). If I am in invisible mode, I wont get black box messages?? I'm always invisible. Will the IM's be blocked only if you have the away message checked??

Topic I Am An Atheist. (Does that offend you?)

I don't believe in God. (He doesn't and has never existed.)

This comment bugs me. Saying, "he doesn't and never has existed" states a fact, not an opinion. I'd have added "as far as I'm concerned", on the end of that. That would be less offensive, to me.

Topic Football Season: Who is your favorite Professional Team?
Posted 10 Sep 2015 16:15

I heard that if he didn't make it in the US he was coming back to the NRL to play for the mighty Roosters.

I'm not sure how they could fit him in under the salary cap, even with the exit of Roger. I dont know much about who else is leaving the Roosters post 2015, but they should send Kenny-Dowall and his female bashing habits back to the land of the long cloud as well..Side note, they will be very hard to hold out this year. Best of luck to them.

Oh sissy soccer. Where players barely get tapped and roll around like they are wounded? evil4

Whilst my NRL team, the Parramatta Eels, have missed his brilliance this year, the 49'ers are going to benefit. He's an NRL superstar, one of our footballing gods, and we are all hoping that now he has made the final roster, that he makes a name for himself.

Topic American Pharoah wins The Triple Crown!
Posted 09 Jun 2015 22:54

Its a great feat, but in all honestly, what usually happens is that the defeated brigade often go other routes in an effort to win a race when one horse is this dominant (18 starters in the Derby, 8 in the Preakness and the Belmont). It happened here when a horse called Black Caviar won every race she went in, 25 out of 25, including a win at Royal Ascot against the best sprinters the world could throw at her. What I do like is that the owners have decided to continue to race him. Race followers want to see the best horses continue to race, not be retired and sold off. This kinda robs the fans of seeing the best horses continuing to race, so kudos to the owners for doing that. And nice win Buz.

Topic What is the best Mid Range DSLR Camera for your money?
Posted 11 May 2015 04:34

Most of the Nikons on that list don't have an AF motor built in - they rely on one in the lens if you want that function. (You want that function)

This looks pretty good... Link

She better hurry up. I might buy it myself..That is one hell of a deal..

It looks like my budget restricts me to entry level cameras:

It might be better buying a second hand mid-range one instead, although you don't get any guarantees it isn't faulty.

Have it serviced. Get a shutter count and the overall condition will be your guide as to how its been treated. Your lens is going to be your investment, the bodies might come and go.

I've had my D80 for years.

Actually, I forgot about this line. The D40 up to the D90 were all great cameras. For me though, I love the addition of the LCD on the top of the body were all the settings are displayed rather than using viewfinder, I'd feel naked without mine, and no one wants that. Great suggestion and I am sure you could pick one up and feel like you stole it.

Ok, so its been many years since I have looked into camera gear not having to make any new purchases myself, so when it comes to what is the best at the moment, I'm not sure what the answer is to that. The model you have linked is the old Rebel line or 300-600D (or wherever they stopped the numerical order). They are entry level DSLR's, but if you are really looking to get serious, I would not waste money on something entry level that you may grow out of. Most these days have umpteen mega-pixels (its all a marketing wank if you ask me), and the ability to record HD video. Again, its a camera, not a device to shoot video. At least you are aware that the important thing too remember is its the lens that makes the quality of the image, then its the photographers ability to frame it. To be honest, I would not be looking at anything new. Those smaller cameras are not very robust, whilst they might be in your price range. Im not a Canon fan, although, their L series lenses are very good, and very expensive. I would look at a Nikon, and just so you know, I dont own one of those either. I would look at a used D200 or D300. They are more prosumer and once you hold one and feel the built quality, you will not be looking at any of the entry levels. Then you just need a lens, and this is where Nikon has it over Canon. Canon's standard lenses are rubbish. I just did some photos for work and used a workmates Canon and I could not get good photos, in any light. I had to use my own, and I have compared other scenes taken with standard Canon lenses and they just dont measure up which is why Canon make the L series so good, and so freaking expensive.

See if you can stretch the budget a little further. Find a good used body in good condition, even have it serviced, and then launch into a good 24-70mm lens even if it is made by Tamron or Sigma. I would lean towards the Sigma, something with built in VR and focus. Just as an example, this is a steal.

Look around, do some research. Figure out what you are going to be using it for, and crunch the numbers. Good luck.
