Hey guys 'n' girls,

No more personal attacks or judgemental comments, please.

It appears that "shoenberg3" has left the building, but still, the to-and-fro I've seen is NOT what most POTNers expect. And not what the mods demand of us.

However, this type of thread pops up from time to time, and almost by definition (as it's about money!), some people can become very defensive/aggressive at others' responses.

I'm busy at the mo', but if any of you come across any more "nasty" arguments, please click the "report" button.

Cheers, and keep having fun!
Simon

I do not think I spent a lot, but, only my State Farm agent knows for sure. It is all insured.

I think insurance is a very necessary evil for such small, portable and expensive items.

I have every single piece of gear itemised right down to filters and timers etc on my policy.


Cheers,
Bear Dale

:oops:

I'm sorry - I guess I get kind of defensive when it is insinuated that it is a waste of money for me to get better equipment because my choice of subject and skill do not justify the investment. I should be a bit thicker-skinned (can I pull the I'm a girl and sometimes we get moody card here? - nah, I tend to wear my heart on my sleeve a bit too much no matter what).

My apologies to all for being upset by the comments and for my spanking rant... :(


I like to push buttons on thingies that take pictures. Sometimes I like to push other buttons, too.
I only bite on the second Tuesday of every week, usually only mean people - they kinda taste like chicken...

Yes Jim, I think I'm going to have to invest in the insurance here soon - maybe next month?

If you add up everything that you have down to the smallest item, you can be surprised how much you have really spent. Throw in a couple of monitors, external storage, laptops, software etc

So have your gear covered in your house and when it's outside your house.

My wife and I stopped at nice spot once on a trip to get some Chinese takeaway, came back to the SUV to find glass all over the footpath, the back passenger window smashed in and my gear ripped off. Insurance paid out within 30 days.


Cheers,
Bear Dale

Albeit a slight off-shoot of the original thread - knowing that our own homeowners or renter's policies may be inadequate, how many hobbyist have riders or special policies for their equipment.

~shrugs~ I guess maybe it depends on how easy it is to come up with the money for replacement - when I think about what I have in camera equipment (more than my vehicle is worth) insurance seems to immediately come to mind? :lol:

But we can return to the "how much did you spend?"

I did forget incidentals like the software, etc... hubby even insisted that his new computer was all about photo processing (that I can borrow it when he doesn't need it). I'm using that to lobby for my new external hard drive (make it easier to move things between the two computers)... ;-)a

Why does everyone make a big deal about their wives and their wives not being allowed to know what their camera equipment costs? Please tell me this is a joke...

It always baffles me to no end. I don't want to offend anyone, so I'll just say that I'm glad someone else thinks this way too.

More on-topic: In the ballpark of 3.5k I'd think (don't always care to know for sure, as long as I'm paying it off). It'll most likely balloon to about three times that this year or next. There's always other stuff to pay for first that put dents in the plans.

Here in Queensland it is $367 a year for $10k coverage, that covers theft, loss, damage, everything you can think of. I have no idea what it is like in the States though.

You may want to lobby for a server instead by making an argument of time savings involved by being able to access everything immediately with both computers. :cool:

I already have a wireless router and Windows 7 - file-sharing isn't an issue (as long as the computer you want to share with is turned on). Have debated running my new drive plugged into the new router we're getting this weekend (our four-year-old router doesn't handle streaming video well enough, looking at a two-channel 450x450 maybe?). Some come with USB that you can plug a hard drive into and run as a file server. Or I could get hubby to let me get a CPU, plug printer in, etc., and let everyone access my printer...

Thanks on the other comment. I know I am very lucky to be married to such a good guy, but I can't believe that other spouses are that difficult. My father managed to have a life that included his Harley and hunting trips, gun collections, etc. If you love each other you want the other to have whatever they can within your means. :)

Don't stress it, sweetie! But do try to not to react when a member "goes for your throat!"
They don't know you.
They've never met you.
So it can't be personal.
And in all likelihood, they have a classifiable personality disorder! ;)
Best ignored/reported.

So sorry to hear that, Jim. At least the insurance paid out.
Makes me even more happy to live here, in rural Japan, where (no joke!) every summer you can see cars outside convenience stores, doors unlocked, keys in the ignition, engine running (to keep the aircon working!), personal possessions on any/all the seats...and NOBODY steals a thing.
