Weight and Stuff Report – 7 June 2012

WorriedBack up a bit in another random bounce. Mutter.

The day started off looking quite nice, but the rain came back again. Not a lot of it, but enough to make me put the camera away a little earlier in my lunchtime wanderings than I’d planned. I’d taken out the 5D Mark III partly to get some pictures of the Bank of England demolition job, and partly to test something new, which I’ll talk about later.[1]

I did get some pictures, and enough of an initial test to be reasonably happy with that, but more work will need to be done before this year’s North Wales trip, so I’ll know what approach to take.[2]

Anyway, here’s one to be going on with. I’m assured that it’s OK to call this guy a fat Buddha because that’s the name of the establishment he’s sitting in front of.



Camera: Canon EOS 5D Mark III
Aperture: ƒ/4
Shutter speed: 1/2500s
Focal length: 58mm
ISO: 200
Location: 54° 58.284′ 0″ N 1° 36.5374′ 0″ W

[2] Yeah, doing it again. It’s not really working, is it?

WordPress 3.4 – RC2 out now

Well DoneThe next version of WordPress will be unleashed early next week, unless something major comes up with testing of the second release candidate, which you can find here:

WordPress › WordPress 3.4 Release Candidate 2

I’ve had a quick play on a test site, and didn’t find any major issues, and did find one new feature which I’ll be using. But I’m not telling you what it is yet, in an attempt to maintain a bit of suspense and anticipation. Or something.
