The year in review
Sun, Nov 17th 2013 3:40p Warren Elsmore The yearThirteen years ago, I bought an Audi A6. An expensive car, then and now. I signed up to a finance package and committed myself for the next 3 years.The reason I signed that contract back then was that I'd also just got my first job as an IT consultant*. It was a huge leap from my previous position and, I'll be honest, a bit of a stretch. I'd past the 4 stage interview and doubled my salary overnight but I was cautious and still a little bit scared. The job was also going to be the har [read] Keywords: exchange

The Canon 70D in review
Sat, Oct 12th 2013 11:30a Warren Elsmore This might be a long one. The Canon 70D in review. First up, the disclaimers...Firstly, I'm not a photographer. What I mean is, I do take pictures, it's true. And they are used to promote things I do. But I'm not a paid, professional photographer. And I also also very bad at grammar and starting sentences with 'and', and 'but'. But ( hehe) the other members of a photography forum I'm a member of are very interested in this new camera - so here we go. That forum is ostensibly for 550D own [read] Keywords: facebook

Sat, Oct 12th 2013 7:40a Warren Elsmore I feel in need of closure - It's been a but busy since the last post! From Montreal, we drove back to Boston via New York State. Via a very long route in New York State it turned out. Oops. Hey, we got to see Lake Placid and a very cool little family run Ice Cream parlour though. In fact though, that was very much the reason for the road trip.
