Wolverines!!

er, sorry just a minor Red Dawn reference – it’s not my fault, I grew up in the 80s.

Now that I’ve got that out of my system, a note on a new toy.  As I mentioned before, I’m going to go (mostly) digital on my trip to Yellowstone.  I bought 8 GB of memory cards which is only 800 or so pictures in raw format.  For the past several years, I’ve shot around 800 pictures in film.  On the one hand, I suspect I’ll take more pictures in digital since the marginal cost is basically zero.  On the other hand, I’ll have the ability to prune out any bad shots.  Still, I suspect that I’ll wind up wanting more memory cards.

It comes in a variety of sizes, I bought the 60 GB version – enough for 6,000 pictures.

I got the device in today from B&H (they seemed to have the best prices).  Unfortunately, it had outdated firmware installed on it which wouldn’t read my SDHC cards.  Fortunately, I was expecting that and I had downloaded the next release of the firmware which does support SDHC (although at the fairly slow, standard SD speeds).  Of course, getting the firmware on a device while using a linux computer is always challenging.  After screwing around with it for an hour or so, I punted and used the old Windows 2000 partition I have on the desktop.  I felt dirty afterward, but at least the device works with my memory cards now :).

Overall, it’s a very cool piece of hardware.  It does what it says it does and seems to do it well.  It’s not for archiving – that’s a whole different problem to tackle, but for short term storage, it’ll work.

Meanwhile, our success as a network isn’t just the Super Bowl and the Grammys. The rest of our schedule is performing phenomenally, too. Yes, last week, the Grammys was the 1 show. But last week, in addition, we had 17 of the top 20 programs. We won 82% of the half hours in primetime. It doesn’t get much better than that. Plus, last month, we were the first television network in 6 years to have 2 scripted programs, NCIS and Big Bang Theory, with more than 20 million live viewers in the same week. So just as we predicted on our last call, the momentum at nfl jerseys china the CBS Television Network is building. CBS is now the 1 network in all key demographics, including adults 18 to 49, and we are pulling away from the pack. We are ahead of last year’s numbers and should finish the season ahead in every single demographic category. And we should be the only network to have done so.This is another case where you have to get some perspective on just how radically different the world was then. It doesn’t exactly take a huge amount of mental effort to nfl jerseys cheap stay alive through an average Saturday of eating Cheetos and watching 12 hours of terrible direct to Netflix action movies, but evolution built Cheap Football Jerseys a brain that was designed to handle a way more dangerous world. An OCD sufferer is acting like he’ll die if he doesn’t get every little thing in his immediate surroundings exactly right, but you don’t have to go back too far in your time machine to find a world Authentic Jerseys Wholesale where that was absolutely true. It is thought that the condition originated as an evolutionary warning system that kept our whole species alive by making certain early humans constantly worried about everyday stuff like “Is this thing still good to eat?” “What’s that approaching noise behind the woods?” and “Is Grog being carried away by that giant bird?”4). Then, the microscope configuration was switched to record the spectral transmission of light in the retina (Fig. 3a). Images of transmitted light were recorded at optical sections of 5m thickness fake oakleys spanning a total of 150m, corresponding to the average length of Mller cells, from distal to proximal ends. We could clearly identify distinct light guiding tubes across most of the retinal depth (Fig. The elevator goes up to the 39th floor, and through a Authentic NFL Jerseys pair of double doors, a neon paper airplane glows on the wall.

There are few hints about the businesses that weave together these cubicles and glass offices plus those one floor below.There are branding experts, a social media team, a group focused on digital growth, another on philanthropy, and spread throughout the Times Square office space is Roc Nation Sports, a fledging and mysterious sports agency that’s part of the sprawling business empire run by Jay Z, the hip hop icon and street wise, uber successful entrepreneur.His business portfolio includes jets, a music streaming service, colognes and high end liquors, but Jay Z’s athlete portfolio is just as intriguing: Dez Bryant, Robinson Cano, Yoenis Cespedes, Victor Cruz, Miguel Cotto, Geno Smith, Ndamukong Suh.”It’s a family.
