  1. Spotted one of mine in the Guardian this morning - H9EJ3T https://www.theguardian.com/education/2019/jul/13/vanity-project-debts-pile-up-for-english-free-schools-scheme
  2. Yoko was supposed to be in Manchester last week for the opening event of the Manchester International Festival. She was unable to travel but appeared by video link.... https://www.theguardian.com/culture/video/2019/jul/04/yoko-ono-gets-thousands-ringing-bells-for-peace-in-manchester-video-report Incidentally Ed, once you've got less pressing things to do, I can recommend the Manchester Ship Canal cruise..... https://www.merseyferries.co.uk/cruises/Manchester-Ship-Canal-Cruises/Pages/default.aspx
  3. No surprise there - it's owned by the Brittania group which, for the past six years in a row, has been voted the worst hotel chain in the UK.... https://www.itv.com/news/2018-11-03/britannia-named-worst-uk-hotel-chain-for-sixth-consecutive-year/
  4. I wouldn't be too sure of that. From Mario Westphal, developer of IMatch..... "Unfortunately, Adobe seems to have ruined the initial idea of DNG for good. By adding new stuff to the DNG format every time they needed something for their software, they created so many flavors and variants of DNG that it is not funny anymore. So much for 'standards' and Adobe." https://www.photools.com/community/index.php?topic=4377.msg29317#msg29317
  5. This explains the Artist's Retail Right..... https://www.dacs.org.uk/for-artists/artists-resale-right/in-detail It's a royalty when an artwork is re-sold by an art market professional, but only if it sells for €1000 or more and is a "work of graphic or plastic art". It does include photographs but i assume it means fine art prints. So unless you are selling prints to people with more money than sense fine art connoisseurs, I don't think we need concern ourselves about it..!
  6. A bit late but I've just come across this - looks interesting..... Travel Tripod by Peak Design
  7. Ahh.. the Galmisdale Café and Bar. Three pints of the local brew after a day on the hill and with an empty stomach - our stroll back to the camping area was a somewhat erratic affair...! Thanks Don, much appreciated.
  8. This may be of interest.... https://www.photools.com/community/index.php?topic=6841.msg47262#msg47262
  9. Well, nothing to settle really - it was just a light-hearted post after a few drinks last night. He isn't interested in photography, doesn't carry a camera except on his phone which I've hardly ever seen him use. I've promised him a pint or two if the picture sells though..😊
  10. The other day, whilst stood on the top of the highest summit of the Coullin Mountains on the Isle of Skye, there occured an event which happens perhaps only once every hundred years or so - I asked my companion to take a photograph of me. On the way down, having successfully negotiated the delights of the Great Stone Shoot, the aforementioned companion (otherwise known as Self Perambulating Mobile Foreground Interest) and I got into a philosophical discussion about copyright. In short - if I hand my camera to another person in order for him/her to take a photograph of me, who owns the copyright? Obviously I argued that the copyright belong to me, the main rationale being..... 'cos it's my camera, innit. He countered with the analogy that if I lent him a typwriter and he produced a literary masterpiece with it I could hardly claim copyright just because it was produced on my typewriter. Discuss... if you've really got nothing better to do.
  11. I broke my left arm a few years ago and I'm left-handed. I tried to use the mouse with my right hand but it was a hopeless task, however I bought a tracker ball mouse and this was much easier to use with my 'wrong' hand. I would recommend one if you are in the same position. I still use the tracker ball occasionally when I'm using a graphics tablet - saves having to put the pen down when I want to whizz the cursor over to the second monitor. I was recommended by several people (one a nurse) to take a calcium tablet per day - it's supposed to help heal the bones. Of course, whether it made any difference or not I'll never know but it certainly did no harm.
  12. I've just taken delivery of this Powerextra kit - two batteries and a double USB charger for £24.99. It seems to have mostly good reviews and for 25 quid it seemed worth a punt - certainly the charger will be handy in the campervan. Off to Scotland soon so I'll report on them when I get back. EN-EL15 Powerextra 2 x batteries and Charger with LCD Display
  13. Thanks Bryan. From a 35mm transparency taken on the 31st Dec 2004 and it's the first time it's sold. An example of why I never cull 'non-sellers'. And I've still got that hat...
