2/5/2009 12:36:36 AM Haha.  That pretty much nailed it.  It's addicting - especially since its on my Blackberry and I can do it whenever. Another thing i'm hooked on lately is that annoying Yahoo Answers.  I get a kick out of the questions and replies that people come up with on there. 
2/5/2009 12:11:59 AM Via Wikipedia - Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows its users to send and read other users' updates (otherwise known as tweets), which are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length. In other words - you simply type in "what you're doing" at any time and people who are following you can see your updates in real-time.  I actually have it linked to my Blackberry with an app. where if I update it from my phone it automatically updates my twitter, blog, and facebook status.
2/4/2009 11:54:34 PM How many of you on here are on Twitter? I added SS, but lacked the motivation to go through and add the regulars that I recognized! Follow me and I'll do the same! http://www.twitter.com/brandonaguiar On another note - I sure wish this season would pick up.  I've only been boarding one day and it's absolutely killing me. I hope you all have been doing well! Brandon
12/13/2008 4:16:59 PM I'm not trying to be a jerk, but why does all the posts from this individual have no real substance?  "alot of snowboarders i know play paintball as much as they snowboard, just wanted to see what people would say" Then he finishes his post and posts another one? Not to mention this thread was started a couple minutes after he apologized for continually posting nonsense. I guess I have no room to talk I am guilty of it as well in this post. Bad day.  Had to rant
12/12/2008 10:45:57 PM Joined today and 11 posts?  Wow.. I can barely hold 2 or 3 posts a week.
12/11/2008 2:58:16 PM I can see this getting into the wrong hands someday and being used for who knows what purposes. Neat, but kind of scary.  
12/6/2008 5:12:25 PM Mike, the D60 does not have an autofocus pin either. The D60 is basically a D40 with some extra features.  Sure, Nikon is updating their primes line but who knows how many more years it may be before we start seeing a complete introduction of AF-S primes.  If and when she gets to the point in her photography where she understands a little more and wants to buy these primes she will be out of luck for any autofocus capability with the d40 or d60. As well, my only fear is that if photography becomes a true passion that she will quickly find the limits of a D40 or D60 and grow out of it.  I did some searching for you and found a D80 kit from B&H with the 18-135mm kit lens (decent consumer lens and will give her range for starting out).  As well it comes with (2) Sandisk 2GB SD cards. Everything to get her started plus free shipping and if your in California no sales tax.  $784.95 - right under what you mentioned your budget is.  Here is the link : B&H D80 Kit Ultimately it is up to you and what you can afford, but I think the D80 would be a great camera for someone getting into photography and wanting to seriously improve. 
12/6/2008 9:23:52 AM I agree with the size issue.  If she is really serious about photography then weight should not be a consideration.  Now, if she wants a little dslr to take out on trips, etc. then that's a different story. 
12/5/2008 10:43:30 PM Maybe the best thing to do would be to take her over to your local shop and let her actually hold and play with both nikon and canon.  That way she can see what layout better suites her and what feels comfortable to her.  Once she thinks she has an idea come home and order it online 
12/3/2008 9:54:07 AM   6.1mp is fine - although at this point in time it is on the lower end of the spectrum for DSLR's.  A 12mp will just allow her more cropping room in her photos.   Sure megapixels matter to an extent, but you're going to get just as beautiful prints from a 6.1 as a 12.  GOOD glass is key.  New camera bodies come out and quickly become outdated, but your glass is what will stay with you from body to body forever.    Mike - I am still suggesting you try to get a D80 over the D40.  I don't know how serious your girlfriend is about photography or how much technical knowledge she has but if she is serious about it she will quickly grow out of the D40 and find its limits.  On top of that, the D40 does not have an AF autofocus pin which means a lot of the beloved lenses such as the 50/1.4/1.8, 20/2.8, 85/1.4, etc will not autofocus with the camera.  Only lenses that are AF-S with an internal drive motor will autofocus with the D40.  A severe limitation down the road if she decides she wants to drop some money on some nice primes such as the ones I mentioned above.   
12/2/2008 6:41:54 PM Go with B&H , that is the only place I'll order my gear from.  If all else fails and B&H doesn't have something I desparately need i'll order from Ritz.   If you're from California tax is a pain.  No tax and they are doing free shipping right now for the holidays on some items.   If you're deciding to go with Nikon (which I recommend, haha ) stick to a d80 or if your willing to spend a little over your budget the D90.  The d40 is so low end that I think anyone who is interested in progressing with photography will quickly grow out of it.   I would say just buy the body alone and forget the kit with the kit lens.  Spend the money on a 50/1.8.     
11/25/2008 8:16:29 AM It looks like the storm that was suppose to hit California has fizzled out and the forecast looks really slim for any significant snow totals  That and they are saying sunny next week with above average temperatures? This is frustrating.
11/19/2008 8:45:37 AM Don't lose hope man. My grandpa was diagnosed with colon cancer and they said he would have maybe 5-6 months to live.  It's been over a year and a half and he's still chuggin' away.  Just make the time count!
11/17/2008 8:45:18 PM Nu, good to hear from you!  Also glad to hear you decided to come to come to the Nikon side! Nu, you'll never stop learning man.  I posted a blog about this actually a couple months ago.  It's like every time I think I've learned everything there is to learn about photography something new I find out about pushes my photography even further.  I can look back at the end of a week and realize how little I really knew at the beginning of that week.  I think that is one thing that makes photography for me so exciting - the learning process NEVER ends. If you ever have any questions don't hesitate to hit me up on PM!  There's so much to know and I'm here learning just the same as you!
