Your ISO is too high and your exposure's not long enough.

That's not a problem with RAW issues, it just looks like a technique problem.

What ISO is your camera set to shoot at?

Yeah, the Rebel XT's not a bad camera for what it costs. I'm sure you'll be happy with it. I'm just curious to see how long it'll take you to shoot fully manual. Setting your own aperture, exposure, ISO, etc.

Well SVideo output will work on any TV with SVideo input (or through a VCR or other device with SVideo input).

Are you trying to use your TV as a monitor replacement? To extend your desktop? Or just to watch movies & play games on?

Post Posted: January 6th, 2006, 12:24 pm

If your laptop has SVideo output (many do these days), that would probably work with pretty much any LCD TV. If you're looking for one with a specific VGA input, you might have to just get a decent sized LCD screen & Hauppauge card or something, or splash out the extra and get one with VGA input.

well I have installed all the drivers I could Are they the RIGHT versions? for some reason I cant install my VGA stadard video card, or my Video card Controller drivers. Well, they haven't actually made a video card that is really worth using the "VGA Standard" drivers in about a decade. Although, ...

Yup, mod_rewrite is the best way to do it. I did exactly the same thing to one of my sites a few months ago. Google's index for that site was up to around 14,000 pages (some were duplicate URLs for the same content). The only part of the forum I kept was basically the forum posts. The site was PostN...

Are all your hardware drivers accurate? What software have you installed since formatting? Have you run any anti-virus or spyware scanners? Did it do it right after you formatted and reinstalled? Or after you installed your software, games, etc?

Yup, purely for easy URLs. My main site has a LOT of information in its particular industry that doesn't exist anywhere else, so people are copying+pasting URLs all over emails, yahoo groups, other sites, etc. So, I prefer to have nice neat HTML URLs that aren't 10 lines long (and broken) when paste...

Yes, any application that uses fonts you will have to reload after installing a font - basically because software like illustrator, photoshop, word, etc. loads the current font set when the program loads - and it doesn't reload it again after. In order to reload the font list, you'd need to restart ...

Like funny fuzz says, a forum can be a good way to get a guestimate of traffic on a site, although it is by no means conclusive. I run one site that gets between 500-2000 visitors per day at the moment. Traffic's fairly erratic, but it is real. But, VERY VERY few posts in the forum. I've another sit...

You can pull information from the $_SERVER variable about the user-agent, etc.

Personally, as long as the uptime is exceptional, speed is fast and I get SSH access, I'm happy :)

Whilst I was an official Seagate reseller, I prefer WD and Maxtor drives these days.

I'd go for the WD or a Maxtor, but may I ask why you're looking at something as small as only 80gig?

This is a windows issue. The Yahoo forum is for subjects relating to Yahoo search, promoting your site in the search engine, etc.

Moved to Windows forum.

The only practical difference between TIFF files and JPG files is that TIFF files are uncompressed. Resolution x 3 (3 bytes == 24 bits). On a Nikon D100 that would make images that are 3008x2000x3 == 18,048,000 bytes. 3008x2000 NEF RAW files on the D100 are around 10Meg. Compressed (not lossless - b...

You are right, it dosn't mend a broken leg. But neither do antibiotics, does that mean they don't provide health benifits for poeple with an infection? Marijuana is an antibiotic now? ;) treating the symptoms and curing the cause are two VERY different things. As are health benifits and being healt...

There's a different between relieving pain, and actually giving a positive health benefit - treating the symptoms and curing the cause are two VERY different things. Pot doesn't cure cancer, or heal a broken leg. Smoke/resin still builds up in your lungs just like cigarettes - although probably not ...

I wouldn't say it's "better" than alcohol, just "not as bad" as alcohol :)

Pot provides no health benefits, heh.

yeah, the raptor's definitely the way to go for your primary system drive. Will be lightning speed. Then I'd probably just pick up a pair of Maxtor or WD 250Gig SATA150 16Meg cache drives (best value for money - around $95 or so each) for your data, swap space (for photoshop, premiere, and other app...

Same here! :)

Not used POVRay for a coupla years though (was giving it a workout to see how far it'd come).

These days I stick to Maya/MentalRay, but POVRay's still one of the best out there :)

Google doesn't show all your backlinks, it never will, and you'll have no way of knowing which real backlinks Google does and doesn't know about.

Simple as that.

Others are showing different numbers because they're probably checking Yahoo, MSN and other Engines, not just Google.

What you need is a custom written package. If this software were publically available, there'd be a lot more people attempting to do it. :)

That's a little beyond the scope of this forum. This is, after all, a webmaster forum. :)

You might want to try hitting Google. There's many ways to encode to DivX, XViD, and other Codecs.

No you don't :) VideoCD data is like AudioCDs. They have a fixed set file structure that's identical for each disk, so it doesn't need the 10 or so meg that CDs reserve for file allocation tables, etc, so that a PC can understand it. It utilizes that space for your video data. Like I said, VideoCDs ...

Yeah, like the site you're on right now? This is a PHP powered site. It is NOT difficult to have dynamic titles on a PHP site, and have those dynamic titles optimized for each page (same for the keywords, description, etc). It's no different to any other content on the page. :) As far as the ? URLs,...

Yes, but you don't need those to burn an 800Meg VideoCD image file to a CD :)

Post Posted: December 24th, 2005, 3:56 pm

You can use XViD and other codecs to fit more video onto a 700Meg CD. CDs used to be 651Meg as standard, now with that extra 50Meg, you can get around 7-8% more on each CD. Basically, the capacity of a 700Meg CD is only 700Meg when it's formatted to be used in a PC. It's like audio. If you export au...

I don't know, Camtasia comes with its own codec (the techsmith codec) for capturing, encoding, etc. I don't know what Snagit uses. I've captured videos before with Camtasia @ 1024x768 for over an hour with no problems. But, remember this can result in HUGE HUGE video files, so be sure your hard driv...

Okies, I started to have a read of it, then kinda quit... Honestly, I think you should break it up into several smaller tutorials (and add a few more)...
