Hi Everyone,

Thanks for joining this Community! In 2014 we went from 0 to 600+ members!

For 2015 I will be trying to improve the quality of posts by doing some moderation. This might involve creating a new section for "Best of".

Also if you're interested in being a moderator please let me know.

The Kindle edition of Brian Sanderson's "The Way of Kings" is free right now. It's quite good, definitely pick it up if you like smart and well written fantasy/sci-fi.

PhotoMechanic is hands down the fastest way to preview your RAW images. It isn't super cheap, but it has dramatically sped up my workflow.
 
PhotoMechanic is on sale for 20% off TODAY! These sales don't come up often.: http://ow.ly/uqdEJ

Hi Everyone,

So glad this community has taken off and is soon approaching 200 members!

But I've noticed some spam.  What do you think about making the Community into a curated collection?  I will select the best ones (or most +1's).

Option B)  I leave it alone, but make a special curated section called "Pick of the week".  

What do you think?

So you think I should do the last option?

I know that this isn't sun related, but thought it might lead to an interesting discussion.  
I've been trying to focus more on color and tone in my photography.  What do you look for?  What are some challenges that you give yourself when you take up the camera?

Do you go to farmer's markets?  How much of your weekly food do you buy there?

I'm considering whether to offer clients DVDs or USB flash drives.

Most netbooks and slim laptops no longer have DVD drives, and with the move away from big desktops, I'm wondering if some of you even have a DVD drive at all?

If I sent you your photos on DVD, would you be able to read the disc?

You are right, USBs are the future...  2pluses:they are more compact and won't get scratches like DVDs

Need a unique proposal idea?
Get a goat!

Sometimes the only way to say "I love you" is with a bouquet of herbivores. I pulled out all the stops and found a way to integrate my partner's favorite animal into my marriage proposal. Yes, goats.

Found out about this from a recent New Yorker article on the overuse of SWAT teams. The militarization of US police forces has led to many tragic deaths in recent years. Radley Balko explores this in his book.

The Founders, Balko notes, evinced a clear “wariness of standing armies … born of experience and a study of history,” and they designed the Constitution expressly to guard against the home raids, property seizures, and other routine indignities to which the Britain subjected its colonists. “If even the earlier attempts at centralized police forces would have alarmed the Founders, today’s policing would have terrified them,” Balko writes.

However he notes, "“This is not an anti-cop book."

Much better tea than Tea Verde or Tapioca Express. It doesn't taste so synthetic. Jazen is about equal but has fewer flavors.

The lam roll with yogurt is not what you'd think from the English description! It is three egg rolls (Filo dough filled with lab) filled with lamb and smothered in yogurt. Not what I was expecting. Other than that it was good. The eggplant stew was good.
