re: Found my "old" DSLR. Is it still useful? - Tigris

re: Found my "old" DSLR. Is it still useful? - Tigris
Sure, it will be fine to use, though camera bodies continue to improve. So it depends on how much of a purist you are. I actually just upgraded from a Canon 7D to a R6. Canon has a new line of mirrorless bodies that also have image stabilization and larger and better sensors, along with some othe...

re: Lots of hummingbirds at my house after the storm - Tigris
There are translucent stickers that you can put on your windows. They help and don't mess up your view much. I've got these on several windows: [link=(https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H8QDX1P/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1)]Window stickers on Amazon[/link] But I really g...

re: Thoughts on Jordan Peterson? - Tigris
Weirdly enough I'd not heard of him until last night when I watched him with Michael Malice as a guest. I liked him well enough but prefer Michael Malice. Lex Fridman was mentioned on here a few weeks ago and I've been watching his podcasts relentlessly since then. His interviews with Michael Mal...

re: Where were you when 9/11/01 happened? - Tigris
Going to Lowes to buy some stuff for the new house. NPR reported a small plane had hit one of the towers. They thought it was weird but no big deal. Coming out of Lowes they reported a second small plan had hit the other tower and the announcers were puzzled at the coincidence. Turned on CNN whe...

This isn't a spider in the video, it's the tail of a viper (Iranian - so even more scary) that is used as a lure. [link=(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFjoqyVRmOU)]Iranian spider-tailed viper[/link] Yet another reason not to pick up spiders....

re: Why are Chinese not as prevalent in tech? - Tigris
It's coming. In some countries China is designing and building plants for a fraction of what the US does, and they also provide the financing for no cost up front. We will increasingly be facing Chinese competition for engineering, tech, and finance. They have already opened engineering offices i...

re: International flight covid testing - Tigris
The train and station look really nice. I'm definitely looking forward to it. Ollantaytambo is our base for most of the trip, we're just taking a smaller bag for the two nights at Aguas Calientes/Machu Picchu. They've got us in really nice/pricey hotels which is unusual but will be appreciated. ...

[quote]I’ll be there from the 10th-14th.[/quote] Well, then we arrive at Aquas Calientes the same day, maybe on the same train. Small world after all. We're catching the train at Ollantaytambo in the morning and headed back there on the 12th in the afternoon. I'll probably have a purple LSU bas...

re: International flight covid testing - Tigris
I'm headed out on the 14th, Machu Picchu isn't until Oct. 10 or so. The cold gear will depend entirely on the elevation you are headed to. Peru is just below the equator so the seasons are reversed but there isn't a whole lot of seasonal variation in temperature. On a calm day you can get away wi...

re: International flight covid testing - Tigris
It's actually two organized group birding tours. I've already done the Amazon/Jungle/roughing it tour a few years ago. This is is for foothill/higher elevation stuff. The first covers the north on both sides of the Andes and includes the Kuelap ruins which are similar in scale to Machu Picchu. T...
