Dropbox offers up to 5GB of free space to anyone willing to go beta -- Engadget

I was just wishing, I had a little bit more space in my dropbox....when I came across this.

This is also gives me the excuse to play around with my new camera lens. An smc Pentax DA 35mm f/2.4 AL.

Wonder if I should still take both lenses with me when I go to Gally?

It does make we wish to add an smc Pentax 70mm f/2.4 DA Limited to my setup as well…. Also wonder if there’s a Pentax K-01 in my future....

Additional note about my new lens....I added the usual filter to it, a B+W 49mm Clear UV Haze and some what unusual, a hood.... 49MM metal lens hood for Pentax.

After which, I learned that a 58mm cap fits the end of the hood nicely....so I bought a Promaster SystemPRO White Balance Lens Cap - 58mm.

But, this then means that the Camera Buckle Lens Cap Holder; for 62, 49 and 40.5mm Lens Cap Sizes that I had gotten wasn't sufficient anymore. Though it never really was, given that one side is blocked with on my strap...so I guess it really worked out that I needed to add another one of Camera Buckle Lens Cap Holder; for 67, 58 and 52mm Lens Cap Sizes to my strap as well.

62mm is the cap size of my Tamron AF 18-250mm F/3.5-6.3 lens....which is now the other lens that I'm debating if I should bring on my trip....

Meanwhile...I'm wonder where one finds a lens chamois these days.... Think I at least have a recent lenspen somewhere. Also I discovered that the online storage part of my Eye-Fi cards aren't working....probably has to do with the great password reset at DreamHost.

Restless Leg Syndrome Awareness Week

Link: http://www.sleepassociation.org/index.php?p=rlsawarenessweek

According to the American Sleep Association, this week February 1-7 is Restless Leg Syndrome Awareness week. Or, Willis-Ekbom Disease...which is the corrected name of the condition.

OTOH, according to the RLS Foundation...the awareness week is September 16-22?

Anyways....I've probably had Willis-Ekbom for years....I remember the weird something crawling under my skin sensations back into childhood, and I recall being told that I was a kicker in bed. I used to tuck the sheets in extra tight all around me, in an effort to control things....these days I don't do that anymore, but I need to have the weight of my comforter on top of me to sleep.

I also had a peculiar problem where the area around my feet would wear out faster on my sheets than anywhere else. One year, I put off checking for a long time, and eventually wore through the heated mattress pad underneath. That was a cold winter, with no working mattress pad.

Was annoying, because it is one of the few mattress pads out there that doesn't have the cord connection on the top surface of the pad...where my constant moving feet are going to keep bumping into it all night.

Then last year, I saw a new doctor, and before I said anything, he asked if I was on anything for my RLS. Now I'm on Ropinirole (Requip). I'm using a heated mattress pad that has the cord connection point on the surface, but it doesn't bother me as much and I things seem better. Though sometimes things still do shift. Also, the dose is mainly to treat the condition at night, I still have the sensations in the day time....

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
