Emergency Recall on Brittany Murphy Posters [Dec. 24th, 2009|08:52 am]
Sarah
Wiki:
Brittany Murphy (November 10, 1977 – December 20, 2009)[1] was an American actress and singer. She starred in films such as Clueless, Girl, Interrupted, 8 Mile, Uptown Girls, Sin City, Happy Feet, and Riding in Cars with Boys.

At 8:00 a.m. (16:00 UTC) on December 20, 2009, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to "a medical request"[22] at the Los Angeles home Murphy and Monjack shared. She had apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Cause of death is not yet known.

From TMZ:
"A DVD rental company is moving fast to remove outdoor promotional posters of Brittany Murphy -- posed lifeless in a bathtub -- for her movie, "Deadline."

Officials from redbox -- which operates DVD kiosks around the country -- tell TMZ beginning today field teams are removing the "Deadline" box art from the kiosk displays. The officials tell us it will take 7 - 10 days to remove the image from the 19,000 kiosks nationwide.

We're also told the "Deadline" distribution company will change out the DVD covers."

10,000 gigaton reserves of frozen methane - heading for the sky [Dec. 24th, 2009|09:43 am]
Sarah
If global temperatures continue to rise, massive amounts of methane gas could be released from the 10,000 gigaton reserves of frozen methane that are currently locked in the world’s deep oceans and permafrost. Passing this climate tipping point would result in global warming that would be far worse and more rapid than scientists’ current estimates.

AA-12 ... Zombie killer! [Dec. 24th, 2009|09:47 am]

The best automatic shotgun... also fires exploding frag-grenades! (4:30 into the vid)



I wonder if the ammo caddies would be able to eventually contain multiple rounds filling the space to the centre of the cartridge? At the moment there's only the perimeter used, which is an awful lot of space wasted. I'm thinking of normal spring loaded gun magazines in a circle...

The hot/dead/slightly wonky pixels really show up with these ISO settings - but wow! these are previously impossible situations to photograph in...

Big piccy's without noise reduction (mostly)...

Personally, this is good, and with noise reduction improving it'll be even better. What I'm really after is a camera with enough dynamic range to photograph the sun from inside a cave, and be able to pull off the details in the cave, and the sun-spots on the sun... from the same exposure.
