I have a camera from that era that is destined for landfill. Post a pic of the battery and I might be able to send you a free charger.

Often the batteries are the same.

The camera with a suitable lens will detect and trigger for something as small as a bug. The canon hack thing is awesome. you can even set up a grid to decide which bit of the screen will trigger the shot... it if you are taking a shot of lightning but dont want the moving tree in the foreground to trigger it, you can deselect the tree.

I love the open source community.

For example, there is a NZ washing machine company .. maybe Fisher and Paykel - that makes their devices with massive stepper motors. Perfect for controlling sudden stops and starts. Anyway... it turns out with a little messing about, they make very good small wind turbines. (maybe 300 watts or so from memory)

The cool kids from the interwebs asked them to make some small change to their device so it turned more smoothly and they did.

It wasn't any big adjustment, and didnt have any real downside to them, but it would have required some retooling, but how cool is that!

I hope it is that company.. if not I'll edit this with a correction later.

I just sent a PM to someone, and discovered the forum software replaces naughty words with interesting alternatives.

I never knew this because I always keep it family friendly, and the PM was describing someone who didnt bring their own drinks to a BYO BBQ, but I cant help thinking there's a PM me poetry competition going wanting :)

Difficult to know what's going to rhyme with something you cant see.

I can't remember who it was from way back on this thread, when someone came up with a dozen excellent acronyms for a yabby farm, but I'm sure they will figure it out :)

Anyway... PM* me a poem.

You can probably preview it or something to see what it will look like.

:wave:


*Please keep it out of the public space in case something slips through
