    Quick question; following the demise of my HP Pavillion 9000 series (see thread, I wondered whether I could simply rip out the nice 2GB of memory and stick it into my old Toshiba Satellite to give it a bit more 'oomph'? As far as I know, both...

    new photo site

    After seeing the photos of the "Village Negre" in the Grotte de Bournillon on Mark's site, and one that's appeared on the ukc front page, it reminded me of a picture I took over 20 years ago, which went wrong, and finished up being lit almost entirely by carbide - 1.5 minute exposure.

    Google Earth - Peak District

    This may be something that happened a while ago, and I have not spotted it, but it appears that Google have updated the resolution of the Peak District satellite images to a much higher level. Given that I spend half my working life driving backwards and forwards across this area, it certainly...
