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.

systemd unit to start a browser/user process on network up

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

Since every picometre counts screw t...

That time a BT rep. recommended I use "something like Password123"

There are loads and loads of sites out there with ridiculous password rules, but BT gets a special shout-out for their special, multiple, password policies.
