re: Found my "old" DSLR. Is it still useful? - Tigris on 9/13/21 at 12:26 pm
[quote]The more time passes from then the more I've been proven correct.[/quote] Back in the 80's I told my dad that digital would replace film some day. He laughed and said that the resolution and memory required made that impossible. Moore's Law proved him wrong....

re: Found my "old" DSLR. Is it still useful? - Tigris on 9/13/21 at 8:04 am
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: Thoughts on Jordan Peterson? - Tigris on 9/12/21 at 9:33 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Where were you when 9/11/01 happened? - Tigris on 9/11/21 at 6:33 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

re: Why are Chinese not as prevalent in tech? - Tigris on 9/7/21 at 11:42 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

The train and station look really nice. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

They've got us in really nice/pricey hotels which is unusual but will be appreciated. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: International flight covid testing - Tigris on 9/4/21 at 11:26 am
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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

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...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
