  1. Jeff - yeah, I'm sure all those barriers /cones are necessary when you need to reroute traffic. Also the electronic flares are so much better than the "regular" ones, especially if you already have a problem with fires! Patrick - I think it's pretty normal that the volunteer fire dpt will help with traffic if there's an accident, because in rural areas the law enforcement won't have enough manpower to take care of that, but the fire dpt can step in to support. I've seen the volunteer fire dpt do it here as well. Also, I'm sure they're prone to err on the side of caution to kee
  2. Yes, HE got that, but considering that the customer pays at least three times that, then THEY paid for it about $3K.
  3. People who mock accents are stupid idiots, but then oftentimes the youtube comments are a cesspool of human idiocy. And yeah, I saw an interesting looking pic, and only after that I looked at the poster's name, and saw it was you. Made my chuckle, anyway We're having another "warm" day, the heat index is in the 110F range again.
  4. Jeff - is that a pickup truck with a camper top? 😮 Sheila - congrats on the nice sale! My biggest sale for the month is a mere $22 MrSorbias - 20K subs is awesome in my book. I don't even have 400, LOL!!! I have opted to never speak on my videos, mostly because I just don't have anything to say, and also because of that very thing I then stumble on words trying to think what to say. So for me, it's better just to shut the ef up I had a job once where I was expected to carry a walkie-talkie and say things to it in certain situations, but for the first year I refused,
  5. Yeah, SODs used to be "something better" and then they changed to "just as bad".
  6. Sheila you can have the CS6 and CC at the same time. Just make sure you still have the key code for it in your Adobe account, so you always have proof that you bought it. I have an older version of PS that I could use if I didn't have the CC. And, I have CC because I get it free (like you would) as a bonus from AS sales. Also, your free subs to CC will eventually expire, they don't last forever. I have mine stacked so my CC should be free till far out some time next year, at least.
  7. What other settings are there for RAW than NEF that works on your computer? I only ever use NEF. Photoshop opens those just fine. Get him the Adobe DNG converter and have him convert the images to DNG rather than JPGs so they are still RAW images and he can edit them - here's the link: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/using/adobe-dng-converter.html
  8. As much as your whole family is dependent on getting things done online, I'd expect your area have plenty of providers with enough bandwidth for your needs. We've never had fiber or cable connections where we live, but the alternatives have lately picked up the slack and are performing quite nice. It's great to have a connection that gets things done in a timely manner We did lose power this afternoon, apparently something happened at a substation and the power was gone for about 3 and half hours. We hooked up the fridge to a generator to keep it going and then tried to stay
  9. There are plenty of videos on youtube of people assaulting police horses and getting wrecked as a result. You usually have to be on the kicking end of the horse for that, so this dude was safe, sadly, standing on the front. We're getting another hot day here, possibly hotter than yesterday. Heat index will be in the 105-111F range. Or higher, who knows. The dew point was 78F yesterday which makes the heat absolute misery. Sheila - is your own connection not working again? 😮
  10. Around here that's the exact same thing as punching a police - hopefully the same over there and he gets his punishment.
  11. "Sometimes" would certainly be an improvement as far as I'm concerned 😄 Sheila - yeah, the camera gear can be heavy, even if you play it smart and only grab the mere essentials. It's steamy here today, 94F with 110F heat index (right now!). For some reason my husband is not willing to go back out to finish up the break job on the big truck...LOL!!
  12. Ahh, we can blame that on slow internet connections, there was probably a whale sleeping on the under ocean cable and squishing it so hard that data couldn't get through In the other news it appears the raccoons gave up scavenging the yard for bird seed after I started putting the big feeder in the house for nights.
  13. If you look at the top on right of the image it still says editorial use only - the problem is that it's not visible enough.
  14. You should be able to set your view to "narrow" also separately so it doesn't have the super wide angle. I mean, you CAN do it with the stabilization, but it's also available in the regular settings for the video. I have an older GoPro and it has that, and depending on the other settings (resolution / frame rate) you have more or less options for the width of view. The data rate is quite high on those settings, which probably causes an issue with the connection between GoPro and your phone? In your other setting the GoPro does the stabilization in the software, so it probably can'
  15. It is a good pic, but I think Doug is referring to an old inside joke about ducks and shooting them...... I don't have a link to the thread, but it's from 2010 or so.... probably in the archives. I found it -
  16. I was just thinking that it would probably save my nerves a little if I switched the bells to something less loud... it's actually a dog collar with LARGE jingle bells, five of them, and when Marshall starts tossing it around it's LOUD. Well, it's loud for someone who expects darn near absolute silence like me
  17. I put one up for Bob when she was little, and she'd just touch it with her nose for a little jingle, I didn't even train her, I think she trained herself (the smart cookie that she is ). When Marshall arrived he took all his cues on everything from Bob, and he became a monster jingler as soon as he was tall enough to touch the bells - it was too high for him at first, but he grew quickly to reach it. He was also really good about going out to pee/poop right from the start; the first day you could tell he wanted / needed to go out when he was looking out of the windows towards the y
  18. We have a "doorbell" at the door that especially Marshall uses when he wants to go out. We HAVE TO put him in his crate and close the door for the night, because if he can roam free he thinks it's appropriate to jingle the bell to go out at 3AM -- and the truth is, he doesn't need to, he just wants to. He also whines in the crate in the morning IF my husband is at home, because he knows my husband will let him out early. If my husband is not at home, Marshall will not utter a sound until I get up, because he knows better... Bob, on the other hand, can roam around all
  19. Thank You, Heide. Apparently they're still working on it.
  20. I don't see any of that even on Edge.
  21. What browser are you using, I don't see anything like that? 😲
  22. Jeff - I absolutely agree. Also, if it was up to me, I'd ban all traps unless there's a way to make sure only the intended species of animal can get caught in it, AND it doesn't have to suffer in ANY way. Live trap is fine to an extent, and then you MUST check it so often the animal won't suffer in it, say, in heat/ drought / other conditions. I don't like killing any animals at all, especially if one lives in the sticks and WE are the ones encroaching on THEIR habitat - they were here first, for generations, long before us. I still understand that in some situations it's necessary, but a
  23. Sheila - yeah, that was just a wing left over from the buzzards. Sadly they get most of the "goodies" since they're out and about during the day and they spot the food and get to it hours before the coyotes or others even know it's there. But they're not mother nature's cleaner uppers for nothing, they're quick and efficient!
