  • I'd say not to worry too much. Linux is different from Windows in that you can have multiple desktops installed simultaneously and switch between them at will. Just try them out and see which one ...
  • the wife has been running Gnome3 for a while and I don't think it's thàt bad - takes some getting used to, that's all.
  • It's a custom-built show-display which contains open tubes for the stems to grow through. This type of Allium is quite unique and patented by a single grower in the North-West of the Netherlands. ...

    Allium Globemaster flowering This incredible Allium creates a sensation in any garden. The colossal round flower heads are up to a foot across! The color is lovely too, and many gardeners use these ...
  • Although unlikely I'll be visiting the US for fun (it's become a bit of a daunting place to visit) my job may require me to do so. Business-wise, I shouldn't have much of an issue as my company ...
  • I had already visited the other Canaries of Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Lanzarote and La Palma surprised me by being entirely different. The island is both exquisitely and explosively green in ...
  • No filter will do that but simply underexposing by a stop or so a bringing back the shadow areas in raw processing (or even after by adjusting levels) will do the trick perfectly.
  • I've used it for years and it's really nice, has a regular mini-USB (unlike the proprietary connector of the iGotU which I owned before). What is also nice is that it uses a regular Nokia battery ...
  • Most of them should be sent back to the US immediately or incarcerated at the illegal alien facility at Schiphol Airport. We simply do not want those Americans bringing their dangerous habits ...

  • Replied in Tom,
    if you need any English to Dutch translations, I'm willing to step in pro-bono (although I'm not a qualified legal professional). Just hate to see other people's work get nicked like this and ...

  • Truly dude, try using Google - it really IS simple
  • I suppose with portraits you'd want to either focus in live view or use a split-image focusing screen. Catch-in focus is incredibly handy and powerful but as you have noticed it does run into an ...
  • Created discussion thread K-70 + Revuenon 55mm/f1.2 + 2xTC
    The combo is relatively easy to focus and, with the lens wide-open creates this wonderful dreamy look about things while still retaining great detail sharnpess.
