I just did a 6 hour headlight, HIDs w/ relay, and shutter switch install with my buddy and I don't think I ever want to own a Camaro ever...LOL..

I haven't done any work on the new Camaros so I'm not real sure how much of a pain they are but I know if they are anything like my Vette they are horrible to work on. I'm only slightly kidding when I tell people most procedures in the service manual start with "remove engine from car."

Totally worth it though once you get out on the road. :D

It was definitely fun to drive, but the bumper removal and everything in between was so time consuming. Why in the world would they put 5 screws on the outer fender only to find 4 more bolts underneath that same area after you drop the fender. Then you repeat it on the other side, remove two bolts at the bottom of the frame, and 2 at the top along with 6 clips. THEN the bumper comes off..

Now imagine that, the custom wiring we had to install and the new headlights and put those all back together again. When I work in my Honda I have that bumper off in 5 mins., working with this Camaro took 3x as long which I think is so silly how they like to have extra bolts. Making the custom wiring and testing all the electrical functions was faster than removing the bumper and it was with 2 people..not one. /endrant

Sorry. haha

yeah Win 8 64 bit here... 6gig ram and pretty frustrated sometimes at "program not responding"

so I shut it down and re-open and that re-freshens things for a bit...
as I wrote in an Adobe survey recently - I'm hopeful things are more responsive and speedy in 5.3 ;)


If you haven't increased your cache area in LR to about 20Gigs that helps some.

Yeah, the uses you listed are the ones I figured it'd be good for.

So I realize most of you use flickr and I don't know if it has the same feature, but when I upload a series of photos to picasa it makes an animated gif. Found this out totally by accident. Anyway, this is how we ended the girl scout troup shoot the other night. :)

Here's a shot I decided to try while camping the other night. Didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted, but then again it was a informal shoot at 3:30 in the morning with a headlamp and fairly intoxicated photographer.

do any of you guys know anything about the Clevo (from what I read the guys that used to sell the Alienware brand, or rather alienware resold clevo stuff under that name or some crap like that), re-sellers? Particularly Sager which is the one I have seen come up in most so far.

I think someone on this thread was interested in a new laptop... you might want to checkout woot.com today... they have an Asus 17" on sale today. 8GB RAM, and a real video card.
