Eat It Up

So why is it illegal in most places for me to talk on my cell phone while driving, but morons can pull out of a McDonalds with a Egg McMuffin in one hand and a hot coffee in the other?


Nikon D5000 Overheat Problems….

I did several searches on this problem. and I am still wondering if it is just me, because I couldn’t find a similar issue posted anywhere…

I went to the Delaware State Fair on Friday, and i had my Nikon D5000 with me, shot a lot of pictures or so I thought, because today I upload the pictures to my computer, and there is at least an hour of pictures missing. I know I took them, I have witnesses, and every-time I hit the button I could hear and see the shutter go. I wasn’t using the screen, and I was getting glare off of it so I had it turned around, so I don’t really know if the pictures were actually ever there.  It problem occurred shortly after I mentioned to my wife that the camera and lens felt a bit warm, and I started hanging out in the shade, and I thought that if there was an overheat problem the camera would shut itself off, so I felt I was good to go. The weather was sunny and 82, so the temperature wasn’t overly hot (and well within the D5000’s specs of 102), but it was sunny, and we were on concrete, so there was not a lot of relief from the heat or sun.

While I was searching for the a possible cause to the problem, I found several references that mentioned that the camera would shutoff the sensor if it overheated and you were shooting video in live view, but not reference to shooting stills. I honestly feel that this may be a related issue.

So a word of warning, if you are out on a sunny day with your D5000, and it feels warm, check and see if it is actually recording the data.

If you have experienced this particular problem shooting stills, please let me know….


Monday Night Football…

Would someone at ESPN please come to their senses and get rid of that annoying looser Tony Kornheiser, he has to be the absolute worst thing to happen to football. As much as everyone hated Dennis Miller on MNF, I am sure that the Dennis Miller haters would welcome him back with open arms, after being exposed to the constant annoyance of Kornheiser.
Unfortunately my Sirius Satellite Radio in the house is broken, so I didn’t have my alternatives for audio.


So whats up with the !$title$!

I am pretty sure it’s not me, because I have seen it elsewhere today. I am guessing there is a minor bug in the wordpress app, that creates an initial post titled !$title$! With other place holders in an initial post. I wonder if that is the app checking to see if it can actually login and post to the site as configured.
The wordpress iphone app is pretty cool, handy to have in your pocket to add a quick entry. The insert picture feature is pretty slick. I wonder if it follows the ping setting on the server, or if your just out of luck for pinging places like technorotti, and stuck doing it yourself.
I have had a couple of crashes today as well with the wordpress app, but not sure if it is the wordpress app, or my iPhone configuration, other stuff has also crashed,


Lack Of Adsense

I enjoyed getting this one today…

Notification that my there was an issue with my payment information for my adwords account, and I needed to rectify that situation I needed login as soon as possible, update my billing information, okay I’m all over that one… 🙂

Well there are a few minor issues with this whole thing. The first of all is that I don’t have an adwords account, adsense yes, adwords no, well I could get confused with certain parts of my vast Internet empire, and think that is was my adsense accounts.

The second thing is, I never click on links in an email, NEVER, and neither should you.

The third thing was, that I was pretty sure that Google hadn’t started outsourcing to 1 week old chinese Internet companies.

The fourth thing, the Reply-To is almost to funny to point out…
