Finally a useful article on hyperfocal distance. The "double the distance" method is super handy, but I also want to take another look at Magic Lantern and see what they could potentially do. I think some lenses can tell you actual focus distance, and they already have a live view focus indicator...

If only the sun flares in my photos were this impressive.
A Solar Filament Erupts

What's happened to our Sun? Nothing very unusual -- it just threw a filament. Toward the middle of 2012, a long standing solar filament suddenly erupted into space producing an energetic Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). The filament had been held up for days by the Sun's ever changing magnetic field and the timing of the eruption was unexpected. Watched closely by the Sun-orbiting Solar Dynamics Observatory, the resulting explosion shot electrons and ions into the Solar System, some of which arrived at Earth three days later and impacted Earth's magnetosphere, causing visible aurorae. Loops of plasma surrounding an active region can be seen above the erupting filament in the featured ultraviolet image. Although the Sun is now in a relatively inactive state of its 11-year cycle, unexpected holes have opened in the Sun's corona allowing an excess of charged particles to stream into space. As before, these charged particles are creating auroras.

I see the Amiga trend has not died out. Here "David Systems" carries on the proud tradition of changing the color of the dot over the 'i'. And I bet they chose that lower font because the tilted 'e' shows whimsy and playfulness. You're super non-traditional, David-with-a-red-dot.

I've been annoyed at logo makers for many years when they take the easy way out. I think the first one I noticed this with was when Amiga changed their logo in '96 to a fancy font with a red dot over the 'i'. Granted, they still had the bouncy ball, so it wasn't that bad, but over the years I noticed more and more logos that were essentially "pick a font and change one letter" as design. I swear, if I had less sense of ethics and more salesmanship, I could have made a fortune selling logos. This blog "celebrates" logos of that style: Just the name, with one letter changed, no real relation to what they do. Stay tuned!

My bet (and that was my expectation too) is that he just got duped because he didn't know the history well enough.
