Wait a minute...somebody's admitting that some of their pictures don't come out? I thought all you Real Photogs got perfect shots every single time.

All I want is a 10-2000 f/0.5L with no distortion that weighs 100 grams, fits in my pocket, and costs $300. Is that too much to ask?

Random question, how many k's roughly should a tank of gas get you ? Did tests on the old car but cannot remember what it was, think it was around 600. The new car just seems very thirsty :|

My current car (Skoda Octavia Scout 4WD) gets about 750 KM on 55 litres. Diesel.

Yeah Right!!

I thought you were going for the Toyota Surf.

That was plan untill photography went west 2 xmas ago, and was also the plan if the South Is idea had worked out. But as we are in Ack for at least another 8 years (kids and schooling).

Have you heard from Cliff?

Not really. You can use a disk testing tool, but it'll give you the same results. You could trythis memory card tester (external link), which happens to report speeds as it goes.

As tim stated - not really - and doing it this way is real world performance... not some fake test.

The bigger the file - the more accurate the test will be - as some things can deal with short bursts of higher transfer due to buffering.

Another question, I managed to get hold of a laptop for my oldest son for Christmas. (It was at the top of his wish list). He is 12. Does anyone have any suggestions for parential control software.. The main thing I am worried about is the internet. I don't want to ban him from using internet, but there are some pretty shadey sites out there. I mean, you wouldn't want a child to stumble on this place, would you?? ;)
as they say, "Trust is good, control is better". He mainly wants to use the laptop for music. What is the best DJ software?
I am sure there is something free, I have seen it at loads of partys, just not sure what it is.

I believe Windows 7 has some parental locks built in. To what extent I have no idea having never had the need to use it... Tony may be able to chime in here?

I have heard of a program called Net Nanny which may be what you're looking for, but that was quite a while ago.

Welcome.

Now I all assume we will not be doing anymore "mine" trips at waihi. Even walking through the tunnel gave me the creeps.

Akiwi in answer to your question I used ipcop at work. Runs on a 486 if required. As for win 7 like Aaron havnt used it but will do some research and come back to you.
I know my girls are on game sites a lot with "chat" rooms so I check the history and like just to make sure they are safe.
