Saving this to my bookmarks :D just relised, i bought the 2 7d batterys off you late last night on trademe, did you get my email?

-smurff

Don't think so, I just had a quick search and couldn't see anything obvious... what was the number? Were we emailing? Sorry, we flick out around 250 courier bags a week now so it all gets confusing pretty quickly! Especially now that I have a dispatch guy that handles the sending of most orders and software that automates a lot of the daily emails etc.

Flick me a PM if you like with the reference number and I'll check for you. (if it wasn't my acct I'll be highly offended) hehe ... if it was the 2200mAh battery it was us as we are the only trader with them in that high capacity :P

Thanks mate, i'll order a couple soon :) Got any hotshoe to 3.5mm mono adapters, to connect my old flashes to my skyports? I'd like to have a spare that's not connected to anything, I rely on them.

Only with pc-sync output, but we have the pc to 3.5 cables so effectvely doing the same thing... Flick me a PM and I'll look after you as usual :)

I think just the stands then, i'd rather have a single quality unit than use extra cords. I use the paramount hotshoe to 3.5mm mono cables that I get from B&H, but it'd be an expensive shipment with just that!

Boo

A couple of pics.

One of my new monitor (taken with my new (to me) lens) and a selection of cupcakes from my daughters efforts for the SPCA Cupcake Day.

No questions about the monitor ah??!

Not a 35mm but probably taken around the length. I got a 24-105 from one of our friends in Christchurch.

The monitor is my first foray into the IPS panel world. I'll do a full review when I get some time.

Mark, your shopping cart isn't persistent... I added something to my cart last week, this week I go to order it and it's empty. You should fix that, it might increased your sales a bit.

We were looking but gave up as the Ins co pulled the plug on our payout options once the govt brought in their zoning plans :| Seriously mucked us about! We are now awaiting the news in 2-3 weeks of what zone we will be. I've changed my mind so often I now have no idea what zone I'd prefer!

Houses and sections are going crazy, there is a subdivision we went and looked at, there were 56 sections available on the Friday afternoon and 8 left monday morning! Certainly a sellers market.

Have just been crazy with work. Moving everything over to a stystem that manages the stock and sales etc a lot better, hired a wee minion for 20-30 hours a week to get the orders out each day, was a lot more work than I anticipated though but think I'm starting to see the light at the end. Will be good, won't have to shutdown when I want to go on holiday etc now.

Photography is not a happening thing unfortunately, it's been over a year since the 5dII took a shot of anything that wasn't a product intended for the web :( (apart for 1/2 dozen clicks in the snow the other week)

Ohhh, I did buy myself a 55" 3DTV and a PS3 (got the ps3 via flybuys) ... its freakin' awesome :) Had to buy myself something so I'd actually come out out the office each night as with Belinda working till midnight and me having to start around 9am I was doing 15+ hour days. Also joined 2 indoor cricket teams, took up yoga and go visiting friends on a Friday/Saturday night to get me out the house :) Body, mind and soul all starting to feel a lot better for it all :)

Besides a few extra shakes and a 10 day visit to Aus thats pretty much my last 6 months summed up :)

Jeez, You guys have it pretty tough. I think of you whenever i hear reports out of ChCh.
Am now on the coast in Maine. My boys are thoroughly enjoying boogie boarding and Skim boarding. Lots of fun.

Hey Mark. Lots of toys.

I picked my new Ipad up the other day. Definitley a nice toy.

Do you have an acct and login? Everytime I test it here it always remembers my cart contents from ages ago...
