2008 FAnime Con

The 2008 FAnime Con was held at San Jose McEnery Convention Center this year during Memorial Weekend (May 23 to May 26). For those who are not familiar with FAnime Con, it’s a big Fan Anime Convention that takes place annually and draws a huge crowd. Some of the biggest highlights are cosplayers, panel discussions, and vendors with all sorts of one of a kind items. Photo link after the jump. Continue reading 2008 FAnime Con

WordPress Never Ceases To Amaze

I’ve been using WordPress for more than 2 years now and it still continues to impress me with the level of development for software that is open source and relatively light weight. The ability to seamlessly separate content from design, the ability of plugins and API hooks, to the ease of publishing content. The WordPress team has barely released version 2.5 (a dramatic upgrade from 2.3), they are already well into version 2.6.

One very promising new feature is Post Revisions. This feature is very much like Wiki in that it is intended to track changes and prevent errors. It also is very useful for blogs with multiple authors in that it is able to track which author made what change to a shared post. Very cool. Keep up the good work!

Impressed With Ace Photo Digital

I recently picked up a Canon EF 16-35mm f/2.8L Mark I USM and needed to get a UV filter for protection. I checked the usual suspects for pricing (B&H Photo Video, Amazon, and local stores) and found Ace Photo Digital (company website) on Amazon.com. What’s a bit funny is that while I ordered from Ace Photo Digital via Amazon.com, the box arrived to me from Focus Camera Inc. According to Reseller Ratings, Ace Photo Digital has a terrible customer satisfaction rating. I took a big risk of being scammed or unhappy by ordering online without first checking with Reseller Ratings, but figured since it was from Amazon, I would have some room to complain if there was a problem. Well anyways, I needed the filter ASAP, didn’t want to risk scratching the front element. Continue reading Impressed With Ace Photo Digital

16GB Of Pure Bliss

I received my order from B&H Photo Video on Monday: two SanDisk Extreme III 8GB Compact Flash cards. First off, let me say that B&H Photo Video is always a pleasure to deal with. They are quick to ship and never had any problems. There are two reasons why I ordered new compact flash cards. First, any purchases for SanDisk cards from an authorized dealer during April 6, 2008 to June 29, 2008 is eligible for a rebate. If I was to purchase a single SanDisk Extreme III 8GB Compact Flash for $99.95, I would be eligible for a rebate of $40. Purchase two and you’re eligible for a $100 rebate. So essentially if I bought two cards, it would be as if I bought one and got one free or paid $50 per compact flash card; either way, excellent price. Continue reading 16GB Of Pure Bliss
