Click to access. Lot there. Worth checking out.


On paper the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II is pretty amazing — in terms of technology and this Website does a great job explaining what that is all about.

Check it out.

This is one heck of a camera. I always KNEW it would be! There is plenty of proof of that on this blog.

Yes, I am still LEeRY of the Micro Four-Thirds sensor. But, the Oly appears to be comfortable at higher ISO and that will compensate for the less senor area for light gathering.

All this said … RIGHT NOW … we have NO DATE, NO PRICE for the OM-D E-M1 Mk II!

So it is, for now, nothing but a famed Japanese PAPER TIGER.

That is pretty impressive. Olympus image stabilisation BUMPING against Earth’s rotation? WOW.

Talk about Laws of Physics.

Technologically, on PAPER, the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II is one heck of a camera — but, alas, as yet, it is but a paper-tiger.

I am keeping an eye on this.

I want a camera that is limited by the Laws of Physics. That is TRUE bragging rights.

A ‘Mill Hill’ Cricket XI From 1970.

I think it is 1970 (my first season there) though there is a 25% chance that it is 1971. 

Definitely the 2nd XI — if not 3rd, but I am leaning towards the former as I look at some of these reprobates.

Actually there were some very fine cricketers in this team, the shady looking wog in shades notwithstanding. The middle three in the front row, befitting that status, was good. The little Indian guy, at the left, was a very fine spinner. I would not be surprised if he went onto play at some v. high levels. Three others in the back-row, the one sandwiched between the two wogs and two others next to the shady wog in the middle were impressive cricketers. That is why I think that this was the Second XI. I never made the 1st so it is easy to rule out that. It might have been the 3rds, that I occasionally was dropped to, but some of the others were regular 2nds. The ‘bigger’, taller, strapping guys were decent ‘fast’ bowlers.

I think the ONLY picture I have of Mill Hill.

Very sad BUT I do not remember the names of any of my teammates. Sorry. I would LOVE to get in touch with all of them. On the whole a good bunch.

This picture was taken in front of ‘School House’.

22 Books On A Shelf.

Why 22 and not 25?

Four of my books are in Kindle only — 3 about popes and one about “4 Vesta” the asteroid.

Shouldn’t it then be 21 rather than 22?

Ah!  There is the Russian edition of my “Corporate Portals” book — i.e., the purplish cover, 6th from left, next to the English edition. I get a kick from that book. Only book of mine that was translated, so far, and it is that book and into Cyrillic.

Yes, this is an affectation — though I like to think that is one of few, and the shelf is not in a prominent location. Yes, it is nice to glance at it every once in a while to see what my life has been — and these 25 books are very much my footsteps in wet cement. {SMILE}

P.S.: I just had, totally coincidentally, my latest Royalty Statement from ‘Elsevier‘, the publisher of my “Web Services” & “Corporate Portals” books. The e-Book versions of them are still selling. Wow. Not bad given that they were published over 13 years ago!
