For some reason, some - but not all - of the comments in this blog's feed are set to 1969. What's up with that? I haven't seen anyone else complaining about this issue. https://nslog.com/comments/feed Update: When I de-activate this plugin, the problem goes away. Kind of makes sense. I'll contact the plugin author.

What’s G?

It's an ad, but I still like it. 🙂 This win keeps feeling better and better with each passing hour. I care more about hockey (probably because I play hockey) than the Steelers, and the Penguins have faced more adversity in the past few years.

Pens Win the Stanley Cup!

WordPress 2.8 Upgrade

Went flawlessly. I think. Knock on wood and all that. And this bug from WordPress 2.1.2 is fixed, eliminating the need for this plugin. The way widgets have gone, I really should look at re-doing the sidebar on this blog to use widgets. They'd all be of my own creation, but the benefits at this […]

Cow Farm

Went to a cow farm today with an "explorers" group. I was surprised by one thing: how skittish cows are of people. They don't like to be petted, though the few that did seemed to enjoy it. And cows will sniff your hand just like a dog. But their noses have a whole lot more […]

My Right Hand Underneath

The takeaway seems to be, for me, a matter of keeping my right hand in what feels like an almost "underneath" position1, with my right elbow pointed back at my hip, and keeping that right elbow close to my body throughout the swing. If I thrust my hips forward, the timing takes care of itself. […]

2009 Memorial Tournament

What a tournament. I'll eventually get around to editing my pictures, but here's one of the winner.

300mm with 2x Extender

Here's an image - ISO 200, 1/250, f/5.6, IS on, monopod1 - with the 300mm f/2.8L IS lens and the Canon 2x extender. Like I said before: suitable for the web, but I'm not sure you're going to want to go make a ton of 8x10s out of them or anything. Regardless, there may still […]

2009 Memorial Tournament

I'm once again attending the 2009 Memorial Tournament. I'm looking forward to trying out my 300mm f/2.8 lens with the 2x extender. Results last year with the 1.4x were quite good, and though I'm not expecting tack-sharp shots with the 2x, I think they should be more than good enough for web-based publication. With two […]

… for three prospects from the Braves. Screw the Pirates. Jackasses.

Dropbox Referral Code

If you sign up for Dropbox (which I recommend you do), please feel free to use this link. I'm told I can get up to another 3 GB of free space if enough people do.

This article mentions Rivet: People have often asked me why I don’t have an Apple TV, and the simple answer is because I don’t need one. I have an Xbox 360, and it can serve up digital photos, video, and audio from networked Macs using software like… Rivet from Cynical Peak Software. (I use similar […]
