Re: Captain Hook's View

What's the monument in the distance? Surely the Wallace Monument at Stirling is not near enough to be seen from Kirriemuir?

Re: Is the Prince Andrew Photo fake?

I don't need to - it's you that's making the assertion(s)!

Re: E-M5 III First Pix

It's pretty good. They have a ukelele session there every third thursday of the month. It's well run (and free) and consequently very popular:

Re: Jammed lens hood on the f4 300mmPro

I suspect that a silicone treatment is applied during the manufacture of lenses. Silicone treated surfaces have a characteristic slippery 'feel'. Also, water droplets bead off a new lens is a way...

Re: Garden things

Fascinating creatures to watch.

I've got some images somewhere of them building. Also of an ichneuman subsequently attempting to parasitise the larva within. Not very comfortable to watch,...

Re: Garden birds

I would have thought that you'd have more Scandinavian specialities than Cranes on your list. Don't you get waxwings, then?

Re: Garden birds

We haven't seen sparrows or greenfinches for years, though we've always put bird food out. Greenfinch populations have been hit by a disease.

We see quite a few from the above lists, but can add:...

Re: Say Hello to The Bund

Ah yes - founded by Sun Yat Sen early last century and later led by Chian Kai Chek (sp?). Does the Kuomintang still exist in Taiwan (previously Formosa)?

Re: Tonights full moon

I always admire these moon shots, but often wonder what they offer compared to (say) a Mount Palomar shot! It's not as if you can take a shot from a different angle, lighting conditions or weather...

Re: Scotland - recommendation about itinerary

I'm just wondering what Scotland would offer over Sweden?

Mountains and lochs/lakes: I would think that Sweden is at least as well endowed as Scotland.

Birds: Again, I would think that Sweden...

Yorkshire Flooding.

I hope that our Yorksire subscribers are unaffected by the flooding, but I wonder if 'Otto' is OK because he's gone quiet the past few days. ISTRC he lives by a river.

Re: Windows 10

As an amateur I've dabbled with many programming languages, including 'C' and 'C++', but if I were to start again, I'd choose Python or Perl - Python because it's a modern language that's much used...

Re: Campus censorship Ďan epidemicí at UK universities?

I sometimes wonder whether an abrupt end to someones life is easier to deal with, compared to the person you know being progressively 'stolen' from you over years by dementia or Alzheimer's.

Re: Campus censorship Ďan epidemicí at UK universities?
