    Hey. Thanks all of your for the Kool extols - I was not expecting that much.

    Well, yes, they were taken by Pro who 'clicks' Bollywood and TV stars!

    Are you sure the camera is actually using a gyroscope for image stabilization? That would mean some sort of fast spinning moving part inside - which would be somewhat battery consuming, and also probably be heard / felt when the camera is on (but none of them is the case).

    You think that's possible? // Just kidding.
    No, generally speaking, customer service is very good here. When you go to a small / mid-size store run by the owner, it will be perfect.
    However, the story gets different with these globalized all-the-same megastores: I sometimes have the impression that they make up some standard calculation for the number of sales employees they need (based on store surface / expected number of customers etc.). Then they take that number and divide it by three to obtain the number of salespeople they actually employ. No wonder these guys are overstrained and stressed. In addition, a prerequisite for these jobs seems to be "no previous experience in sales required, and no interest in the products you sell..."

    Reason: One doesn't need the camera to charge the batteries . So, people can continue using the camera (with a spare battery), while the other one is being charged.
    Well... But it also means that without a spare battery, you can't use the camera while it is being charged. It also means that you need to continously open and close the battery lid to swap batteries (since there's no way to charge the battery while it is in the camera). However, as said above, this limitation is not really important: Everything else is fine with this camera.

    Just wondering: Are software developers / CodeGuru members that popular at Bombay / Mumbai?

    A few years ago, I electrified the place, installing a power supply line with multiple sockets under my favorite tree. (Still missing: DSL internet access, so I have to use the cell phone network with GPRS).

    So...,

    @Ajay: Nice photos. I wonder, is there any special occasion behind your very nice photos?

    @sreehari: Nice photos too.

    I'll admit that I'm partial to sceneries. Probably one factor is, having been living (and growing up) in a city with millions of people... photographing a place with little (or no) people in it is a refreshing change for me.

    Your account of buying the camera you wanted was really fun to read (as always). And wow, you really did pull the anti-theft cable! I have thought of doing such things in the past... :evilgrin: but never did. <Looks at Guido with added respect>

    Nice photos, Guido. We finally see your outdoor office under a wild cherry tree. And wow... Mount Etna?
    Btw, who took the photos?

    Even at the risk of violating the AUP of this thread (sorry, Marius), here's a picture of Europe's most active volcano (without any CG member in it), as seen from my place under the tree:

    // I could post hundreds of pictures of Mount Etna, actually: Every time you look at it, it looks completely different, depending on weather, time of day and other factors (like wearing sunglasses or not )...

    While this question might seem pretty simple, the answer is actually more complicated... So, only on specific request...

    Well, I hope we manage to settle on this out of court... But then: Note the quotation marks, which are there to serve a very subtle purpose: I didn't actually use your line - I just quoted it...

    Yes, nice photos Guido - envy your office.

    In the first one above with you wearing that hat - you look quite like a Cricket Umpire ( ) taking a relaxing break...
