Re: What have you just bought?

I'm looking at buy a Nikon SB-910 Speedflash, and a Nikon ME-1 microphone, but but are still out of stock on Amazon.

---------- Post added at 17:21 ---------- Previous post was at 16:47 ----------

Just read the SB-910 is discontinued, so bought the SB-700

This is a great Tablet. We have had one for over a year and it is a fantastic size and no problem with it

It is an excellent flash, have fun experimenting with it.

Stock up on rechargeable batteries. High capacity Amazon basics are a good bet.

The USG is a bit better spec'd - but lack of ports is a pain.

Re: What have you just bought?

A productive visit to Marks and Spencers. 2 pair of jeans (reduced from 30) and 5 cotton shirt (reduced from 25). Almost giving stuff away atm, must be desperate times for them; the pensioners were fighting in the aisles over cheap cardigans

Bottle of Highland Park Viking Honour 12YO Single Malt, and 3 bottles of Red (Shiraz, Burgundy, and Pinot Noir).

My two brothers-in-law are arriving this afternoon (one from Connecticut and one from Hampshire), so want to be well prepared for after dinner drinks.

Great minds think alike. 12 bottles of finest plonk. God bless the Sainsbury's 25% off wine deal

Re: What have you just bought?

A PATA (IDE) to dual SATA adapter board. The PCI card that I tried doesn't do DMA* whereas this arrangement will. That's vital to be able to play large (>10 GByte) HD video files without stuttering using the media server.

Now works a treat.

*Direct Memory Access: A method of data transfer that bypasses the CPU and is fast.
