Ski lust

  Skiing Magazine has the most complete reviews but makes it all but impossible to find things. No sorting at all on anything, the default appears to be by greatest width to narrowest as if that makes sense and somewhat by date, although 2006 reviews appear quite often which is either a database error or a […]

Ski lust

Things that Dad wants for Christmas (next year!): Armada JJ’s. Although Mark says the Rossignol S7 are great too as does Skiing Magazine. Rockered and reverse cambered. Work on hard pack and the deep powder Bibs. Socks. Seems stupid until you spend 8 hours a day for a week and your dogs hurt. Swear by […]

Canon i9900 8×10 printing

Pioneer BDP-51FD Update

I’m not quite sure why I bought a dedicated Blu Ray player since the PS3 seems pretty much good enough, but since I have one, I get to live with glacial startup times and then it rejects disks all the time because of firmware issues. Anyway, the answer is an update you do via a […]

35mm file scanning back to the future

Well I still have that huge box of 35mm photos that are negatives, slides and prints that have been sitting for five years waiting for me. Finally getting back to it mainly because of this book project. Amazingly the old Minolta 5400 Dimage Elite still works and connects to the Mac and my Vuescan software […]

Photobooks for Christmas

Some of the coolest gifts are personal. So looking for good Photobooks and there are billion providers it seems. A quick google found a great review and for quality (and price) they like adoramapix.com. I love Adorama as a general photo site and mpix.com is the other site I’ve meaning to try. Both are targeted […]
