Well, its the fact that they just pulled it without warning. IMO, if they had given, say, a weeks warning, I'd have no problem with it.

It is there product and they are free to do with it as they wish IMO. There is certainly no law that says they need to give warning.

I know, but if they are trying to keep their customers, they shouldn't do stuff like this.

Good point there.

I guess they just wanted to sell enough at discounted prices so W7 might catch on, then drop the discounts.

also, is it just me, or does the imac have the slowest usb transfer rates ever? I'm getting like .3 MB/s on a flash drive that gets 7 MB/s in linux and windows.

So im going to try an get some nice shots of the night sky with my Camera (Kodak Z8612IS).

I Have it on manual so im going to try Shutter Speed at 16 Seconds,F.Stop at 5.0,Auto EV and an ISO64 To try and minimize noise. I did a test shot some nights back and with these settings,I picked up stars no problems but it wasn't all that clear so it wasn't worth spending the time out there. Now i have a 12x Opitcal zoom SO I Should get something like this:



Though this is my first time using manual AND Photographing the moon (Apparently it's a waning gibbous so i have a bit more than half of the moon to photograph),Wish me luck

Didn't Chis join the Canadian Military? I remember him saying a while back that he'd be gone for a while for boot/other training. Hopefully he's near the end of that.
