It finally happened, I’ve ordered a sensor cleaning kit!! When I’ve noticed that the sensor have been dirty I have just handed in the camera for a general cleaning (especially when it’s done for free during a local photo show). Yesterday, I noticed some horrible dust on my oldest, cheapest m43 camera and it’s really too old for me to send it somewhere. And it’s the perfect camera to learn on, if something bad happens I will be ☹️ but not 😭

It’s not often I think about it but walking on a layer of water (snow) above another layer of water (ice) that is floating on top of a third layer of water is kind of fantastic

About 1.5 year ago I had this idea of making an attempt for a second degree black belt but it looks like it’s not going to happen. Not only is it that I’m getting too old, fat, and stiff … there is also no chance of training. I haven’t trained for about 15 months or so

Tomorrow I’m going for a change, I wonder if there will be a noticeable difference

This is just a short test to see how Ulysses handles images when posting to micro.blog

Walking

It will be interesting to see how it looks.

Well, this year has so far been full of change. New position at work => new stuff to learn, new course to teach => relearn and update myself on stuff that have happened the last 10-15 years.

I just realized that “Smoke on the water” is 50 years old 😳👴🏻

I’m happy to announce that we got some snow this year also, I had my doubts in December. Kitchen window

Sigh, I haven’t been able to take a real walk for several days now. The reason is simply that I’m trying to learn all the new stuff that comes with the new position and it takes time. A bit frustrating.

Sigh, I told the birdies how to shovel a roof. And this is how they do it 🤦🏻‍♂️

First(!!!) attempt of using snowshoes … the size of my feet might explain why I never have tried before 😁. Verdict: not for me.

Using an electronic device for reading, advice please.

Because of my eyes I find it easiest to read on a screen. Typically I read PDFs/ebooks/etc and quite often I annotate PDFs (ie comment on student reports). I’ve been using my 11” iPad for this and the screen is nice, software alternatives are OK, etc … but it’s a bit heavy. A couple of years ago I tried a Kindle (I’ve forgotten which model) but I disliked the screen (greenish, low resolution, etc), the slow software, etc, but the weight was really nice.

Anyway, I’m considering getting some dedicated reading device but I don’t really know what alternatives I have. The obvious to me is the iPad mini but are there other devices I should look at? Note that the ability to annotate a PDF and being able to send the PDF back to the student is a really important feature.
