Jack by jamiekitson 🤷‍♂ by jamiekitson Our kids have started leaving post-it notes around the house. It's sort of like a physical twitter. Gran didn't visit unfortunately because we had to isolate :( by jamiekitson Lovely album from #SaalDigital, finally got a wedding album, only took us seven years. Really nice acrylic cover and lay flat book with full double page images. by jamiekitson The Tree Spirit by jamiekitson To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again: and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself -- that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink. by jamiekitson Kamran's become quite the bookworm during lockdown. by jamiekitson Still Waters by jamiekitson The TV's on the blink, it'll only show Peppa Pig repeats :( by jamiekitson Lawnmower by jamiekitson Obligatory #SuperMoon shot. by jamiekitson Lockdown by jamiekitson Little Bear by jamiekitson Quiet Birthday by jamiekitson Result! #PanicBuying by jamiekitson OK, the coffee's arrived, you can start the lock down. @phoenixcoffeecompany 👌 by jamiekitson Spring by jamiekitson Swing by jamiekitson Coast by jamiekitson The colour of this yolk! #duckandwaffle by jamiekitson

Addendum: it turns out Kai was talking about about a 2,500 Euro coffee machine, so I would hope it would last.

I forgot this was 10-20mm on APS-C, you can't force the Z6 to use FX (full frame) with a DX (APS-C crop) lens, which is annoying because with the electronic stabilisation cropping some of the sensor you could use more of the focal range. FTZ 133.3g 30.5mm 10-20mm 227.2g 73.0mm Total 360.5g 103.5mm With 24-70mm: https://youtu.be/qGQVzweBZIs The 10-20mm seems a lot better stabilised, and the focus seems quicker too. Maybe because of the relative and absolute focal lengths?

24-70mm 496.1g 108mm (at 24mm) With F mount 10-20mm: https://youtu.be/Pf8hiQw-qrI The 10-20mm seems a lot better stabilised and quicker to focus, maybe because it's wide both in absolute and relative values? And the lens is stabilised.

Remove the bottom cover with a torx driver and then undo the sump bolt with a 21/22 mm spanner.Changing the filter was simple enough once I knew what I was doing and had the right tools to hand, but I had difficulty gettin...

Fitting a 15mm High Drive into a Gigabyte BRIX GB-BXBT-1900

You can just about squeeze a 15mm high hard drive into a Gigabyte BRIX BXBT case.

Since every picometre counts screw t...
