Well, since you (or I, sort of) mentioned it, there are four kinds of cotton; two American, one Asian, and one African. At least 80% of the world production is the Central American type.

So yeah, will Egyptian cotton work as well as Upland cotton? :D

That's right, Dave. Cheap and efficient. Who'd have thunk it, eh.

There's still a lot of testing to do, though. Will cotton work as well as cotton? How about synthetic fibres? Will dental floss be the thing to stop smaller bots? I can already envision defence forces buying yarn at $50,000 a bundle - instead of wasting money, of course.

The Roomba is nice, but the Xiaomi can both vacumm and wipe the floors. Besides, Xaiomi should be the perfect name for cat owners :D

I think the latest models have better sensors and get stuck less often. From the video above I also think my little robot is better at planning the cleaning. Here's the map it built during its latest run in the kitchen.

I just had to do some emergency surgery on the robot vacuum cleaner. It tried to consume my wife's knitting, poor thing, failed miserably and called for help :lol: It took some time to get all the yarn untangled from the rotor brushes. Both the robot and the knitting survived unscathed, though.

Getting K-1 with 28-105mm?
Posted By savoche

Welcome aboard!

I find the 28-105 to be an excellent walk-around lens (or in my case, travel lens). It has a very useful zoom range on the K-1 and very good image quality - and is compact for what it is. It is certainly a lot better than what you'd normally associate with the term "kit lens". If you want better you would have to go for the DFA24-70 (truly excellent, but big and expensive) or fixed focal length lenses.

That is interesting indeed. Do you know what software is used to build the tours?

Of course, if one wants to "support" our favourite big brother it's possible to supply images for Google Street View, too. Add 50 or more images and (if you want to) you'll be added to Google's list of "Trusted Pro" 360 photographers. No, I'm not a Trusted Pro ;)

Ours are 5 and 2. They're not to bad to handle each on their own, but together...! Big sis knows where the "go" button on her little brother is :lol:



Oh yes, Thorvald is a climber, too. Blink twice and he'll be balancing on the back of the kitchen chair brandishing the meanest knife he could find on his way up. Every once in a while he will fall, of course, just to get up, bite back the tears and say it's alright - and start climbing again. He's a tough nail (or nut!) but maybe not a quick learner :D

Two days with the grandkids. I'm not sure what's left of me is quite ready for yet another work week :eek:

We had a great time, though - just exhausting! Next weekend I will not expend more energy than the vital minimum. Have to build up some reserves for the vacation :D

Thanks, Father Noel! Yes, Kruger is on the itinerary. I hope we (wife, son and d-i-l) haven't laid out too ambitious a program, but we're picking up a car in Nelspruit, going to Graskop for a couple of days, then on to a three-day stay in Pafuri/Makuleke for a bit of walking, then on down the length of Kruger (one night each at Mopani and Letaba), then two nights in Swazi and finally three nights in St Lucia. Phew...
