When we stand, we promote positive blood flow and can even lower our blood pressure. Why a sit-stand desk rather than a static desk? You don’t want to stand all the time. Even though it helps with your blood pressure, equal time...

Canon EOS Rebel XSi is My Newest Toy

 

 Long before I did video work and music and computer work, I was a photographer. Very amateur photographer. I ran the darkroom in High school and when I wasn’t playing in bands, I used to take my Fuji digital and snap pictures of other local bands around town. I never got into DSLRs because I was trying to work more with video. Even though DSLR cameras became more flexible, I always went with the pro-sumer models. It was important to get the right shot and the DSLR still needed an operator to focus as subjects moved. Last week I was...

As this is a super-early version of the game there are going...
