Argh. Pots and pans are great, but they do accumulate grossness after a while. Consumer Reports says everything they tested work pretty well in cleaning off ordinary stains fro msheets. But, what about really getting the junk off of stainless steel pots and pans. It is a brown film of cured oil. I tried Bar […]
Nothing like omakesase at Nobu to celebrate Serena Williams and Dina Safina win. Cool sake on this. Nobu is great but knowing the sushibchef is better!
Omg. A 43c day in Melbourne. Doesn’t even begin to describe how hot it is. Feels like living in a radiator. Now Serena Williams vs. Dementieva is like watching two power hammers motor away. In row C. Glad roof is up at open.
Wow. Weather forecast is out. Lots of 43C days in Melbourne. That is over 109F. So cooking hot. Also power demand is breaking records. They say it is 100 year heat wave. Having an open electricity trading system makes it so much easier to plan.
Cool places to hang out. The BOA Steakhouse and also the Viceroy for drink. I have never felt so trendy and cool. Except maybe in Shanghai :-0
Wow it does get hot here. Over 40C (104F). I don’t know how people play tennis in this kind of weather. The Crown Towers is pretty nice. Was top readers choice in Australia/Pacific in 2007. The Qantas flight was nearly a nightmare. The Airbus 380 needed a new part. So they delayed it from 11:15PM […]
I’ve never used this thing as I’ve always resorts to DxO to process my RAW images, but now the DxO is just starting to support the Canon 5D Mark II and it doesn’t yet have a module for the Canon EF 70-200 F/2.8 L IS USM lense if you can believe that, so I have […]
Well, HDMI has lots of issues but at least it is reasonably standard. We do have one now very old rear projection system that is 1080i with just component inputs, so how do you connect the Playstation to it. Got an el cheapo Gigaware cable that support component to Xbox, Playstation or just about anything […]
It used to be that the main game in town for a compact SLR was the D40x and the Nikon 18-200 superzoom. Now the market has caught up and both Canon as well as Sigma and Tamron have shipped superzooms. So if you have a subframe camera, what’s a good choice? Well, unfortunately, if you […]
I’ve been using DxO for a while now as a RAW converter mainly to handle vignetting, but also for things like highlight recovery. The 4.0 version was great, but the new 5.0 has had lots of bugs, so I haven’t upgraded. Now with a new Canon EOS 5D Mark II, I have to do something […]
