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

Link: http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/03/dropbox-beta-5gb-free-space/

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.

I got another Lasko 52" Oscillating Pedestal Fan

Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000RMJANY

I bought the first one of these almost 2 years ago....I probably should've bought it in the first place.

A few weeks ago, there was an overnight thunderstorm and powerblip. Later I noticed my Oreck XL Air Purifier was angry, it gets that way now and then after a nasty blip...but looks like this was the last time it would take one. I had been thinking of getting some new air purifiers anyways, guess it is time. Though I wasn't really ready to get one for this location (Computer Room). Of higher consideration was one for bedroom, TARDIS corner or Kitchen Hallway (thinking something wall mount in the vicinity over where my trash can is...)....TARDIS corner was the one that needed something more, because there wasn't anything there at the moment. At least I have the old Surround Air in the kitchen or an undersized Kenmore by the bedroom.

A few days later, I discovered the tower fan in the 'Computer Room' had stopped working. Well, it was a cheap one that I had picked up from Wal-Mart when I had first moved here...almost 5 years ago. I don't think the blip got it, more like the plastic gearing in it has worn out.

I thought maybe I could knock two off with one, and get a tower air cleaner to replace both....so what I got via Amazon Prime was the Bionaire BAP1525RCW-U PERMAtech Tower Air Purifier with Remote Control. Probably an okay air purifier, though inconsistent with what I've been getting lately...and it is rather noisy and doesn't move much air around...so, I'm still going to want a fan.

I did consider moving it to TARDIS corner, but there was another problem with this Tower Air Purifier....it was shorter than my old tower fan so even if it could delivery the air volume to be a fan, it didn't have the height. OTOH, it was taller than I had room for in TARDIS corner....

Shortly after this, I received an email from RichardSolo.com....their Electrostatic Air Purifier was on sale for $99 'til about Father's Day. I had looked at getting one of these at one time years ago, but that need went away and I forgot all about it. But, it seems to work well tucked into TARDIS corner....so guess I got that 'priority' taken care of. Only just put it into service today, so haven't had time to experience much else with it. Though I'm thinking I'd like to get a second one....to replace the Brookstone ESP Air Purifier that I use at work...which had become intermittent in operation some time ago. The Brookstone ESP Air Purifier was like $99 when I got it....so that would seem right. Perhaps it'll be on sale again at a later date.

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.
