Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

Do you photograph? I have owned a Nikon D50 DSLR for about a year now, and also a Sony T30 for casual shots. It is indeed an expensive hobby as many people would put it once they see my camera. But this hobby can be converted to a source of income, and that is what […]

Nuffnang Error

Tuesday, August 14th, 2007

Today the site loads very slow, and as I was about to blame the network when I saw this: It seems that Nuffnang may be currently experiencing some difficulties.
