This is one of my Transformers. It is a motorcycle called Dirt Rocket. I don’t know where the first part of the name came from but the motorcycle is a style that can be termed “crotch rocket” or a “bullet in the head bike” or a “donor-cycle”. But I am pretty sure the folks at Hasbro were not about to call him that.
I hadn’t taken many photos of Transformer’s lately and I wanted to test out the macro lens on the new EC1. I am getting used to the controls of the new camera but I am not totally pleased with them. They are rather cumbersome and not as well laid out as the C4. With the C4 the still and video buttons were separated by the zoom button, all was easy to manipulate with simply your thumb. This camera is slightly larger, the still and video buttons are right next to each other, there is a separate menu button and the zoom is now below the photo buttons. I am still getting used to it but I do like how crisp the macro is and how close I could get to the top. It is only about as large as my thumb.
Frustrations abound as I am attempting to reformat the desktop computer. It is not going well at all. Luckily I backed everything up on my external drive on a daily basis. I am hoping that once I wipe the drive clean and start over it will run smoothly for Allison. I am also looking into upgrading it to better RAM. But I have run the recovery program about 5 times now and I cannot get the computer to boot back up without locking. Very frustrating.
I stopped messing with the computer for the night, let it rest. I did write a decent review of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. I will have to introduce Allison to T2 soon so we can both be up to speed on the show.Mobile post sent by BenSpark using Utterz. Replies. mp3
