Sigma 17-70 F2.8-4.5 DC Macro

My Sigma 17-70 is here !

Here is a sample photo but you can browse more at Flickr !

This is a nice piece of glass and its macro is amazing.

Zoom is fine too with a nice bokeh and portraits come out fine.

One of its best at that price range !


Pentax K100D

K100D

Yes its mine !

My first DSLR is here and I am so excited.

I have already 500 clicks with it but only a bunch that  can stand a critical eye.

Still learning the controls and stuff.

Soon to be pair with his friends :

Sigma 17-70

and Pentax FA 50mm F1.4

FA 50mm F/1.4

Cant wait till there are here !

Untill then the kit lense seems a nice “waiting” lense to play with !


Gran Paradiso Alpha 2

 Gran ParadisoGran Paradiso Alpha 2, an early developer milestone aimed at testers and web application developers, has been released. This is the second milestone released from the Gecko 1.9 branch.

There are no significant user interface changes. Core layout and rendering changes include support for the Web Applications 1.0 API for changing stylesheets, ACID2 test compliance, and improvements in theGran Paradiso Cairo graphics layer.

More information and download locations can be found at Mozilla !

After using it for a few days it seems a bit faster and lighter. It starts faster and it still cant load Yahoo Mail Beta.

Most extensions are broken but thanks to Nightly Tester Tools, some work nicely now.

Forecastfox still cant display weather icons though …

WordPress 2.1 “Ella”

Wordpress

I just updated to WordPress 2.1 “Ella” from my aging 2.0 wp version.
Site is running fine with a new K2 theme called True Blue with a custom header I just made.
I hope the new Akismet plugin does a good job since it seems that comment/trackback spam is on the rise.
New archives page too !
Enjoy.

What is Snap Preview Anywhere? Snap Preview Anywhere enables anyone visiting your site to get a glimpse of what other sites you’re linking to, without having to leave your site. By rolling over any link, the user gets a visual preview of the site without having to go there, thus eliminating wasted “trips” to linked sites.

EDIT :

Well I finally turned it off ! It was a bit annoying after a while !
