    Beautiful shortened video of a longer short film. I tend to like melancholy music (not exclusively). The National remind me of Leonard Cohen.

    Love these! Thanks for sharing! You have a great eye. I haven't posted in a while myself. I'll add a number of pictures over the next few days.

    I built a gaming rig last month. My old one was built in 2011-2012. No regrets: The new PC is a fast beast and nicely overclocked. I picked up a 1080 after some debate. I figure it'll do just fine for how I use it, and if I was buying, I may as well get a fast card. The TI's are still way too expensive here in Canada. As for the future, I may skip a generation and pick up a video card from the generation after next. I figure VR will be fairly mature by then.

    Holy cow! That must have been terrifying. I'm glad the pup is doing OK and that nothing was broken.

    Thinking of you and your family, Pete. I'm hoping the treatment is successful.

    Also still researching power supplies and SSD storage. Looking at an efficient PSU of at least 850w.

    OK, I've picked up a couple of bits: Corsair 2x16Gb 2666Mhz (easily overclockable) The case is a Corsair Carbide Clear 600C full-tower: I'm leaning towards the Asus ROG Maximus X motherboard, though the Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Gaming is pretty sweet too. I have an Asus in my current rig, so there is the "devil you know". I'm still researching a CPU cooler for the Intel i7 8700k CoffeeLake, and the cost of video cards nowadays is killing me. My wife says "just do it", but I may hold off for the 1180's to be released. Still on the fence on that one.

    Beautiful shots! I have the f2.8 version of the 16-35mm. The f/4 is a tad sharper, but the f/2.8 was a gift. I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth!

    There were a lot of them around here this year, which happens every few years. Here's an obliging one that sat on top of a utility pole at sunrise in January for the hour that I watched it:

    The lights are RGB, and it come with a controller so you can change them to any colour you want. My current rig is stuck with only one colour, red, in 3 of its fans.

    @MikeB @Krackennutz, I may get the Corsair Crystal 570X Tempered Glass case. It's on sale until the 5th. I like the look: http://www.canadacomputers.com/product_info.php?cPath=6_112&item_id=103144
