Sufiya's 4th by jamiekitson Snood by jamiekitson Birthday Bakewell Pudding by jamiekitson The kids are loving the @crafthousecoffee Don Alfonso boxes, and the coffee seems to be peeking too, three weeks after the roasting date. by jamiekitson First time on public transport for a while. by jamiekitson Work Gear by jamiekitson Incredible to see nature reclaiming spaces. This was a school classroom six months ago. by jamiekitson Ally Pally by jamiekitson Training Wheels II by jamiekitson Training Wheels by jamiekitson Campfire Cooking by jamiekitson 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

Seems like formatting the memory card has fixed this issue. Although I previously thought downgrading the firmware had fixed it and it hadn't.

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.

Delay Delay Delay Repay

It's often literally not worth my time claiming the pittance you get for late trains with delay repay, but it's the only way you can punish them for being late, so I try to do it out of principal, but boy they don't make it easy. The number of times I've had to clarify my claim or correct the respon...

Nikon Z6 Mini Review

Good - Image qualityJpegs out of the Z6 are generally incredible IMHO. I know it's a cliche but there's something quite filmic about them. Everyone raves about Fuji jpegs, but I prefer the jpegs out of the Z6 even more than the X100s. I used to shoot jpeg + raw, but I've switched to just jpeg now, a...

Google and Amazon Photos Uploaders

This is kind of a mini review of my frustrations with the Amazon and Google photo uploaders for PC. I have a large (~3TB) library of photos. Ideally I'd like a CLI Linux uploader to periodically upload files at will, there are many flexible uploaders for Flickr that do this well, and many of them ha...

Changing the Oil Filter on a 2017 Ford Grand C-Max TDCi 1.5

Changing the oil on our Ford Grand C-Max TDCi 1.5 was straightforward enough. 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...
