Spring is here – and so is my new camera

April 16th, 2011

Last week I got myself a new camera and so far I’m pretty impressed with the results. I hope to write a little about it here some time.

The high-ISO capabilities are really useful when using long lenses in not too bright conditions. No need to shoot wide open all the time.

Birds celebrate successful change to MySQL 5

January 27th, 2010

Finally I upgraded to WP 2.9 which required exchanching the outdated mySQL 4 database for a new 5.x one.
It wasn’t that easy, especially because phpMyAdmin wouldn’t import it’s own exported DB. Luckily there is a DB-Backup plugin for WP which really helped.

So here are the first pics on WP 2.9.1 🙂
