You don’t need an alarm clock

I should disable my alarm clock, and just let Tonka wake me up everyday. She let me take a three hour nap though. She’d probably let me sleep until 11 am or later. By then it’ll be to hot to take her on a twenty minute walk.

How do I train her to wake me up at 9 am?

That’s how you spend around 40 bucks

Bought a manual lens, the Pentax version has good reviews. Had to buy an adapter too. Suppose they could of been using the Canon version with an adapter or something.

How much is 28-105mm on a micro 4/3 camera? I know it’s more. Probably won’t be able to replace 30mm lens with it.

They sent me a message asking if I saw their Vivitar 70-210mm. No I didn’t. Not sure I need 210mm zoom. And it starts at 70mm, which is more on a micro 4/3 camera.

Don’t think I’ll respond. Maybe buy the other one on the 1st. Or not, won’t get the 28-105mm until Friday. It’s shipping to my apartment, so good luck stealing it.

Probably shouldn’t get a manual lens with anymore zoom, it’ll take me to long to make it in focus. So I’ll be getting a picture of nothing.

Need to save my money

Depending on how anxious I am at my first private driving lesson, I might end up getting my license. Unless I’m still to anxious. We only paid for one lesson to start with. Might not be anxious if the other person in the car isn’t. Or I will be, but not as much. Driving isn’t new to me, I did it a long time ago.

How good or bad are pictures with a twenty or so dollar lens? It’s an old lens. Cheaper then buying the Panasonic super zoom.

Probably would only use the Panasonic camera once, and then it would collect dust.

Kind of want a compact camera with a lot of zoom. Easier to carry, you won’t get 60x optical zoom though. I have an Olympus. Might be fine for outside pictures when it’s light out. Haven’t tried it.

My compact Olympus camera is 10x zoom. Third party upstart battery was dead, but the battery it came with has a charge.

My cellphone takes better indoor pictures then my 80 dollar Olympus camera. Probably the same outside, but I can zoom in on the Olympus. That 20 dollar lens would probably be better, but bigger and won’t fit in my pocket.

Take a bunch of pictures of my hairy F.U.P.A and sell the camera on eBay. Might be able to get twenty bucks for it, they’ll be thrilled when they click the preview button on the camera. The eBay fees are to high, wouldn’t pay for the lens + adapter.

Don’t need to use 80 dollar Olympus, my 30mm lens is almost the max of my 80 dollar Olympus’s zoom.

M.Zuiko ED 40-150mm f4.0-5.6 R I’d buy that lens, if I could get it for 100 bucks. New or used, doesn’t matter. I can get a Vivitar 28-105mm for around 30 bucks. Need an adapter, still under a hundred bucks. Better aperture on the Vivitar too.

Tonka woke me up

Took a three hour nap. She went on my bed and was looking at me, and licking me. I thought she was a different dog until I was fully awake. Should of set my alarm for an hour. Probably won’t be sleeping tonight.

Can’t change web hosts

It would take to long to upload my backup, so hopefully my current host doesn’t crap out. If something happens, I’ll cancel. Can’t use the internet while uploading, not sure my connection is slow enough to upload 5 GB overnight. Might take weeks.

Buy a Canon lens

And an adapter. You’ll have to use the lens in manual mode, but you save a ton of money. There’s a setting on Olympus micro 4/3rd cameras, no lens mode or something. Can’t remember what the setting is called.

If you are crazy like me, buy the Vivitar 650-1300mm f/8-16 Telephoto Zoom Lens for Micro 4/3 m43 Olympus PEN E P3 it’s new for 200 bucks. That lens probably weighs more then my camera.

I think you can put that lens on a tripod. Only downside is you have to be at least 16 feet away to take a picture with it.

You need a heavy duty tripod for that lens.

I have enough gold for a Canon lens and an adapter. But having to change a setting on the camera all the time would be annoying, and I’d forget, so I’d either be using the lens that work without an adapter in manual mode, or the adapter lens wouldn’t work, and I’d wonder why.

They would ship the Canon lens by USPS, that means I can deliver it to my apartment. Unless it requires a signature.

You can get a 70-210mm Vivitar lens for 20 bucks on eBay. Free shipping. I don’t buy known/good brands. Doesn’t say how it is shipped. Can I get an expensive lens adapter that allows you to use auto focus on lens? Oh wait, a auto focus lens will cost you more then 20 bucks. Damn.

To many lenses, don’t think I want the Vivitar, says macro.

Need to buy a Fuji camera, never owned one, but a lot of people seem not to like them. I like the brands nobody else likes. But mostly I like the word Fuji.

How long is the cord on my Sega Genesis controller?

Thinking about hooking my Sega and Super Nintendo up. But I don’t think the controller’s cord is long enough. Either need a wireless controller, or a extension cord if they exist.

Need a better HDMI switch, one with a remote. But I’m cheap, so the button one might have to do. Do I have enough HDMI cables? I will connect the old consoles to a up scaler that has HDMI.

Super Nintendo it is for now. Retro bit makes a wireless controller, you can get two for 26 bucks. I’ll see if Amazon has it.

Wait a second, do any of those third party consoles come with wireless controllers?

Actually get the device to play Genesis on the SNES, no new console needed. But they might have a more expensive console with HDMI. Don’t know where my power adapter for the scaler I have is.

Bought a extension cable for my SNES. Comes with two, probably only need to use one.

Scaler turns on with my universal power supply, says 5v on the scaler, but my universal power supply doesn’t do 5v, does 4.5v and 6v. I set it to 4.5v.

Cancelled the order. Don’t need to play SNES. Need to beat Fallout New Vegas before Fallout 4 comes out.

Western Digital or Seagate?

I’ve seen a Western Digital drive die, it was the first computer my mom got. They used used parts. Don’t know how old the drive was. I killed a Seagate drive by dropping it or something, and Seagate replaced it for free. I think it died again, it was in a tiny desktop computer, so it overheated and died. Didn’t bother trying to get it replaced again, I damaged it trying to remove it.

Based on a review for Seagate, their drive died after 2+ years. The warranty is two years only. I’d buy Hitachi, but that is basically Western Digital now. Damn the warranty on Western Digital is only two years too.
