    I have a low-cost JVC HM50, a Flip HD Video Ultra, and a DXG-125 High Definition Digital Camcorders. All serve their intended purpose well considering their relatively low cost. I also have a Sony DCR-TRV-608 Hi8 Tape Recorder and an even older Panasonic PV-420 VHS Tape Recorder. The Panasonic is the reason for my post. I wanted to call upon the wide range of FreeRepublic members because searching the Internet hasn’t been entirely successful. The VHS Panasonic has two features, Time lapse and High Speed Shutter Recording, I want in a Digital Camcorder. The “Time Lapse Recording” is the more...

    So I saw this scene, and I wondered -- can I find Ship Rock at this resolution? (Click the little picture to see the full-size 250m resolution image, which is about 5 MB, if that's a problem.) Turns out that I could. Can you? Here's Ship Rock from the ground; a place I'd like to visit someday. Likewise click for full-size. Now, here's another volcanic feature that's also in the image; on my last flight to the West Coast, I flew over it.

    In honor of the win by the Kansas men's basketball team last night, I thought I'd post a couple of geological highlights from Kansas. People don't normally think of Kansas as a place with a lot of exciting geology, but it's got its places. Monument Rocks site: Paul Wicks (Nice!)

O'Donnell, a physician and DoD medical consultant, said. Around June, additional medical information gathered from Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom will be added. The site contains "information that you really can't find anywhere else about what's going on within not only...

    SAN FRANCISCO - A woman clad in a shiny silver costume, complete with a Lady Liberty hat, fell to her knees and rolled onto the concrete floor of San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza in front of about 80 people on Feb. 22 while the crowd cried “don't give up! Then a man in a white doctor's coat came along with other women dressed in bright colored granny gear passionately reciting the Bill of Rights, gradually reviving Vicki Leidner, of San Francisco, with fake blood on her face, from her mock affliction. The crowd giggled and joined in reciting. The street...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 25, 2006 – U.S. involvement with Saddam Hussein's sometimes noisy, protracted trial in Baghdad "is minimal," a senior Defense Department spokesman said here today. "The court proceedings are all Iraqi-government run (and) handled," Bryan Whitman told reporters at the Pentagon, noting that the U.S. military is involved with some aspects of Saddam's detention. Saddam and seven of his former aides are being tried for crimes against humanity for allegedly being involved in the killing of about 150 people in the village of Dujail, Iraq, in July 1982. Coalition and U.S. forces deposed the then-dictator in April 2003. U.S....

    I was looking over the tax reform commission members some I recognize some I don't. I am thinking about Meirs and the fiasco it has become and I thought..... "We need a way to automatically build a connecting matrix of political or power people and their organizations to be able to go to that name like a map and see who that person is connected to, what organizations they support etc. This way as people post it would some how high light their name to indicate they have a matrix history you can refer to. Sort of like that 6...

    Most of the attention in notebook computing has been on full-size models, the hefty laptops with 15- or 17-inch screens that can replace desktop units. But a spate of new ultraportable notebooks have also recently emerged, in the category often called subnotebooks or ultralight laptops. These much smaller notebooks have screens of 12.1 inches or less and are compact enough to use in cramped places like airplanes. They are also light enough, in the range of two to four pounds, to tote for extended periods without much strain. The new models include features like built-in optical drives with DVD burners,...

    Americans had a brand new view of the world just in time for Geography Awareness Week November 14-20. The National Geographic Society, which hosts the annual event, has just published the eighth edition of its Atlas of the World. The Society made more than 15,000 changes from the previous version, issued five years ago. In addition to traditional maps, the book contains country-by-country profiles of political and economic data, as well as maps of cultural aspects - such as religions and languages. Chief cartographer Allen Carroll says the new edition had to venture beyond the customary political maps. "I’ve always...
  • CA: Final state spending plan features borrowing, not deep cuts

    Sac Bee ^ | 7/27/04 | AP - Sacramento
    Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger began the year vowing to cut, cut, cut. But the final spending plan heading for a vote this week in the Legislature relies on billions of dollars in borrowing and one-time savings to balance and avoids most of the deep reductions Schwarzenegger proposed in January. Battered by a monthlong budget battle, Schwarzenegger gave ground to the Legislature's Democratic majority in fashioning the last details of the estimated $103 billion spending plan. Schwarzenegger agreed to lift an enrollment cap at state universities, to drop a proposal to slash wages of home health care workers and to provide a...

    RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Saudi state television turned to interviewing everyone from children to intellectuals to try to rally citizens against terrorism as it reported Saturday on the latest outburst of extremist violence in the kingdom. Suspected Islamic militants fired inside two office compounds in the oil city of Khobar, 250 miles northeast of Riyadh, Saturday morning, killing at least 10 people before taking dozens of hostages at a luxury resort. As the hostage standoff continued into the night, Saudi TV's last newscast of the day included brief interviews with six men, apparently security officers, injured in Khobar. They...

    I, me, mine
    Everyone, If there's been this type of thread before, pointers would be appreciated. I thought it might be useful to having running thread of user suggestions to improve the forum. There have been some loose discussions during the freepathons, but maybe it's better to have a dedicated thread. Here are a few I came up with: restore the "more posts" link on the "my comments" and "find in forum" pages. Make the search function more intellegent, right now multiple words produce an "a OR b" search, it would be nice to have the option of an "a AND b" function....

    OK, all of you out there in internet land... The wife and I need to buy a new computer. Rather than let the boys down at Circuit City and/or Best Buy push the most expensive one onto us (with a lot of bells and whistles we don't need), I thought I'd see what my fellow Freepers recommend. We are looking for one that will not break our bank or be outdated next month. OUR NEEDS: We use our current system for surfing the web, creating documents, and the rest of the "basics". With the new system we will be doing...
