  8. What have you purchased 8

    Unfortunately nothing model related.... But as soon as it arrives as its currently on order, Sigma 150-600 mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Contemporary lens, as a replacement for the Sigma 120-400.
  9. I wondered for a while now how long it would take for photobucket to pull something like this in all honesty. Years ago it used to be £2.99pm for Unlimited Bandwith/Storage, that then changed to £29.99pm now its up to the price they are expecting people to pay now. The day they changed it to £29.99 I remember recieving an e-mail saying that the payment had been declined, and only after raising it with a customer service agent did I get a e-mail saying it had gone up by £27.00, needless to say I cancelled the subscription straight away as they had to give 30 days notice minumum at the time before increasing. I think its time to pull everything from photobucket now and finally say goodbye to them!
  10. Tracker system for new car

    Stay away from the cheap jobbies on ebay that's for sure, I'm speaking from experience as the company I'm working for bought three as a tester... They where a major pita to set up, as instead of setting them up via usb, you had to text the configuration to them, needless to say the Battery life was crap even on the minimum reporting setting. With a lot of the trackers they need to be hardwired ideally for the insurance, and I would say 99% of them you need to manually connect/splice the connecting wires from the tracker to the ignition/obd/can etc to get them to read properly. I only know this as we have 9 vehicles in work with trackers from a Lithuanian company based just outside Vilnius, and for each of the vehicles it took just over an hour to connect the corresponding wires to the tracker, then another couple of hours getting all of the settings correctly set up so that the RPM/Harsh Braking/Harsh Acceleration/G Sensors/Ignition etc work, that is something that the tracking platform don't offer, the correct settings for each of them so you have to spend the time setting each up then testing each parameter! (its an absolute nightmare at times trust me as its part of my job!) On the other hand you can get Personal trackers i.e a small unit which is around 7cm x 2.5cm x 1cm (roughly), with an internal battery which if reporting Once every 24hours when not in motion and every 10 seconds in Motion then the battery lasts roughly two weeks, but if the car doesn't move then it'll last a lot longer... Further to this though you have get a Hard Wired kit which is basically four wires, two to the battery, one to an earth and one to the ignition, and then as long as it is set up correctly via the data cable "m" it is a lot less work to setup and install. I have one of these on my Motorbike with the Hard wired kit & I can honestly say it definitely helps. For instance when I went to the Southport Airshow last year, I left the bike at the Carousel which is were all the bikers meet, for the two days it was there besides from being at the b&b of an evening it alerted me if the bike was moved, as well as if it was stolen I could track the location down to roughly 8 foot. One think you will need to factor in though is, the cost of the sim card/tracking platform plan's, some can be quite expensive per month (over £50). I'll see if I can get a list of platforms together plus ideal trackers for you. Sorry for the long post aswell!.
  11. Going to be a dad....

    Congratulations to you both!
  12. What music are you playing? Pt III

    I still have the original Album that was released somewhere, "Who Needs Guitars Anyway". Out of all the tracks they released though I have to admit that these two spent a lot of time on repeat: Alice Deejay - Will I Ever https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_3i5LdMqlA Alice Deejay - Who Needs Guitars Anyway? (used to be able to play this on the keyboard) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCgytmf-5zo

  14. The loss of wo/mans best friend.

    I'm sorry to hear of your loss, we lost Loki in 2011 and miss him every day. I originally thought that when I read a bit of the book, but the film is one of those that it is definitely worth the watch, yes its sad at parts, but the last part of the film more than makes up for it, its a heartwarming film.
  15. JPG files will not open for viewing

    Laurie, You could try Irfanview, its a free app but usually if a jpg is in the wrong format, it'll prompt you and then display the image so you can save it.
