  1. Getting in on the act: Nikon D80 body + Nikon 18-200mm. Sounds good? I'm not too sure on whether a "normal" lens is needed in one of the kits that they sell or if it is just buying the body and the sexy lens.
  2. Thats apparently how many cell phones are decomissioned every day in the states. Alarming number. What happens to them all? Anyway check this out: http://www.chrisjordan.com/current_set2.php?id=?view=XXX_09NNN/
  3. I use OCN and don't seem to have any problems sending mails. 5MB is hardly huge and who decided that "email is not supposed to be used for large file transfers" and a number for a limit?
  4. I've always wanted to go and am actually planning for the summer when I'll be meeting family over there. Came across this - whooooaah looks pretty wild. The Grand Canyon Skywalk (36º 00' N, 113º 49' W) is a tourist attraction, commissioned by the Hualapai, under construction along the Colorado River on the edge of the Grand Canyon. Upon completion, the glass bridge will be suspended 3,800 feet above the canyon, a height that eclipses the world's largest skyscrapers.[1] The bridge's walls and floor will be of clear glass of 4 inch thickness. The horseshoe shaped bridge will protrude 65 feet from the edge of the canyon. The Skywalk will be able to hold 70 tons of weight, allowing for 800 people weighing 175 lbs. each to stand on the bridge. The allowed capacity will be limited to only 120 persons. All visitors will be provided with shoe covers to protect them from slipping and to prevent scratching of the glass floor. In addition to tuned mass dampers used to minimize vibration from wind and pedestrians, the bridge will be built to withstand extremely high winds and earthquakes. The glass bridge construction of the Skywalk began March of 2004. It will be rolled onto the edge of the canyon between February 27 and March 2, 2007 after passing several days of final testing to replicate weather, strength and endurance conditions of its final destination. The Skywalk will open to the public on March 28, 2007.

    March of the Penguins

    It's a good documentary. If you like that kind of thing try Winged Migration as well.
  8. It is a very very beautiful region - I've spent a few summers there with family. One of my favorite places.
  9. I don't know the scene well so I'm not sure. I'd like to get quite a few weekends in though.
  10. Skiing, I have never tried snowboard
