I'm going to take a walk through the local Costco and Sam's Club to see how the two brands feel in-hand.
Generally, the Nikon feels solid and has some heft, but the lens just doesn't stand up to use, sad to say.

Just use your mouse and the "Polygonal Lasso" tool and zoom in to the image so that each point-to-point section is smooth and barely noticeable, especially when you use the antialias option.

It was actually quite mild, but there was some mist/fog on the lake because the lake water is still so cold.

Thanks, eh.

Thanks for the words.

Normally I'd have seen that dock module and moved so that it wasn't a factor, but I missed it :D
I usually try to take pictures that don't require any cropping at all...I'm just weird that way I guess :D

I got up a little earlier than usual this morning (04/09/06) and decided to see what the lake looked like. Full size image is here: 1280x960, 374KB.

The more I hear about Maxtor, the less I like, too bad I have to rely on this 160GB drive for my work PC...oh, well :D I keep getting a warning that I'm not using an 80pin ribbon cable right below where the RAM count is displayed, yet I know that I used the 80 Pin cables that came with my SOYO KT400...

Paint Shop Pro will also convert to Truevision Targa (.tga) format .

Not sure what will come of Corel Buying Jasc, hope it only improves on a decent product.

VERY nice photo, thanks for sharing :D

I like the effect that the lights give with what appears to be steam rising from them...are those halogens parked on the ground, pointing up at the building?

Actually, it's not as cold as that image might make you think, it's around 32°F.

It was a LOT colder last week, we've been seeing some mild freezing rain today.

Weather calls for:
25° F tonight.
27° F tomorrow
22° F tomorrow night (nippy, eh :D )

Your web site's formatting breaks up when viewed with any browser other than IE.

I started out with PSP 3, then dropped it when 7 was replaced. While there are some tasks I can do faster in PSP, and still do use it for that, you simply can not beat PS for the quality of the output. The gradients are smoother, the drop shadows (either internally generated or by manually using a D...

Please try to see it from my perspective. At the time that I was last looking for a host, a vast majority of the hosts I could find, either through OZZU or by doing google searches, were offering far more features than I could use, but it was always at a price that unnecessarily stretched my meager ...

Thanks, eh :) I'm not so naive as to suggest that GoDaddy is the best host for everyone, and they may even have some less-than-pleasant surprises waiting for people who like to "share" files. BUT...when I needed a small amount of space and some decent bandwidth and email addresses on a budget, they ...

I suppose a lot depends on the customer's expectations. When I first signed with, the economy plan offered 1 GB space, and 25 GB bandwidth...and THAT was far more than adequate for my needs. It seemed that wherever I went looking for a host, there were hundreds of outwardly genuine, reli...

Please don't take offense, but ANY negative comments coming from another hosting rep have to be considered suspect, or at least questionable.
Regardless of comments found on another site, your attempts to highlite the negatives of another host must be taken in the proper perspective.

Post Posted: November 27th, 2005, 10:49 pm

I have heard mostly negative comments about GoDaddy webhosting. Go to for good reviews. From the perspective of one actually using their services, they have been great. Their prices are low, and there has never been an unscheduled down time. When I have questions, they...

Nice site design.

It seems clear, though...that you coded the site with IE in mind.
When viewing the site, all of the nav mouseovers are below the fold when viewing with a tabs-enabled browser, but when using IE, the buttons are just above the fold.

...In August their server crashed losing everything.
In my opinion, any web hosting company that does not run regular backups of it's clients sites, doesn't get my business.

While I do agree that the client should automaticaly make their own backups, for a host NOT to, is totally unacceptable.

If you have a hard drive with a rapidly increasing number of bad sectors, why would you voluntarily continue to use it??

If you need to rescue data that might be retrievable, then I'd suggest "Spin Rite" by Steve Gibson.

Perhaps I misunderstood what white balance means. I'd had poor results from using the presets that came with my Olympus C-4040 and had been making manual adjustments to as closely match the colors and light levels from the actual scene as possible. I'm currently stuck with PS6, and I don't recall se...

Many CD-RW writers demand to be the master on the channel.

Try swapping those two drives around on the ribbon and try again....make sure to make the needed jumper changes to reflect the swap.
