Canon Powershot S5 IS

My Powershot A610 was destroyed photographing some nifty experiments, in very dusty conditions two weeks ago. Pictures were great, but every moving part is now contaminated with fine iron ore. Anyway, I have to replace it, and have been researching the latest Canon model.I like the larger lens, as well as the 12x zoom. It should make for better pics in low light conditions, such as when my daughter dances on stage. Hate using the flash at concerts, as it ruins the ambience of the stage lighting. Some places have really good prices on the S5 IS, and it is amazing how far technology has progressed in the short time I had my trusty 610.

Why another Powershot? There are lighter, more compact cameras available. But picture quality of the Powershot range is hard to beat.

Windows XP to Vista conversion guide

If you are like me, you will stick to the old faithful XP, because of the plethora of old programs you use. But if you are not burdened by that, this PC Authority article will make you want to switch to Vista.

Am I going to be recycled today?

We dedicated our children to God this last Sunday. Not a big thing - just stating in front of witnesses that we will teach them about God whilst they grow up. And we had to explain this three times to my five-year old.

So in the car on the way to church she asked: "Daddy, am I going to be recycled today?" "What?" Repeat. "Oh, you mean dedicated!"

Christmas of Oz - Dec 2006

Just some cool pics I took over the course of four productions. If you were there, it will mean something.
Running away from the scary wombat.

The witch melting away (My daughter thought she was a witch during rehearsal).

Stevo doing parables like, well, like it is going out of fashion.
The band: Zac, Mark, Billy, Trevor and Jonathan.

Friends are precious

One of my best friends will leave town shortly. And there are so many things we have not yet done together. Anyway, here is a pic of another of my friends, taken October 2006 when we went kite-flying.
The label is Family, as best friends count as family.
