I will report on how my new toy plays out, but I'm not real sure on windows 8 as I've never seen it in action. Of course theres always mixed opinions but as a virgin to the new Win8 its going to be a learning curve.

 

The reason I read this forum is there are good people here whose valid opinions are either professionally based or from tech enthusiasts or noobs like me. Respect !

 

After reading eveln's link I agree on a lot of what was said by all that posted. My old HP Dv6 entertainment BBQ was recommended buy a mate (idiot punched). HP's complementary bombardment software just become bloody annoying and deleted. Continuous overheating issues which was its demise and the component failures were all too common, DVD drive failed twice, Two USB ports no longer work, Power brick failed, keypad setup is just plain awful and screen hinge has always been loose.

 

I do work away in remote civil mining for 4 weeks on 1 week off, so a good reliable machine is needed and tomorrow I get to leave the red dust and heat for the cold raining country place I call home and then I get to abuse an Alien ::)

Business has been pretty good here in Perth, and I figured I haven't taken a holiday in a while....so....time to go take advantage of some free accommodation at my bro's place and get myself some good coffee in melbs.

How old was it during all these failures? You could definitely have had a whinge at HP or the retailer and got a replacement with all those faults, if most of them took place during the warranty period. HP are very cool about warranty stuff, generally. If I was going to buy a laptop, and I won't be for the forseeable future, HP is definitely in the top 3 brands I'd consider.

New router for better wireless. Hopefully it will eliminate that fucking annoying AirPlay lag between the phone and the stereo

And another WAP, so I can have full signal anywhere in the house except the toilet (because I guess the toilet is a faraday cage or something)

I had pre-come opening the box this morning then blew my load after I had it in my hand. So much glass. So sexy.

 

Now I just have to learn how to tame f1.2 on a full frame sensor and I'm set!

You'll soon learn how stable you are at holding focus distance.

 

85mm f/1.4 is is bad enough for shallow DOF meaning a little bit of front/back wobble and it's the eyebrow not the eye lash that's in focus.

 

Forget any action work, even the person changing smile can be a killer if you're working too close, to say nothing of a little kid trying to 'pose'.

Scratched my Oakleys yesterday. Fucked as to how I did it. Just bought a pair of Otis sunglasses. Scratch proof ( apparently ). Store owner took his keys to a pair in front of me. Not a mark on them. I was pretty much sold. Nice to look out of, too.

Best. Glasses. Ever.

 

So clear. So light. Pleasing tint. Won't scratch. Worth the extra $90 over my maximum price I normally go to.

Sunglasses Dis? Funny, hardly wear them but my Raybans, when I find them in this house move, have been with me 40 years :)

 

Downsizing is a most intriguing experience, but it is all slowly fitting into place, so, with a very useless, ugly piece of bench space I ordered one of these today:

Now to plumb the thing in - I HATE plumbing :)

SG300-20: 20 Ports of Cisco Layer 3 Managed Gigabit switch goodness.

 

Because every home network needs VLANs, IP Multicast, QoS, ACLs and other goodness....

(They better not cancel the NBN rollout in my area, or I'll have the fastest network for talking to myself).
