  1. Just curious what people are using (or wish they were using) to capture the Milky Way. I'm currently using a Sony A7rIII with a Tokina 20mm f/2 and am pretty happy with the results, though I'm tempted to pick up the Sony 20mm 1.8 as it's supposed to have better coma correction. I stack my photos (shooting around 1600iso with a tracking mount), so the high resolution doesn't hurt the photos.
  2. It's not enough for person to feel/know they're right. They seek acknowledgement and affirmation of their correctness and anyone who disagrees is a heretic who must be burnt at the stake, literally or figuratively.
  3. So there's increasing talk of a "link tax" whereby platforms like google and FB would have to pay news publishers etc etc etc. We all know the context. But I'm confused. Wouldn't sharing links on FB or having news show up in search results help publishers by directing traffic to their websites? If google/fb don't allow links to news sites to be posted or show up in search results, wouldn't that decrease traffic in publishers' websites? What is it that I'm not getting here?
  4. @Blxnkd What I like about this setup is that it's easy to take apart since the three pieces aren't screwed together, you can adjust the height, and there's no lip on the edge of the desk so installing a rail for a tray is super easy. Out of curiosity, I took my lip balm tube and lay it on the desk and it didn't roll, so it's probably not sagging very much at all. You could always lay something firmer under the desk. I've been using this desk for five years now. I highly recommend.
  5. Nope, no monitor arm. It just sits there on its stand. I do have a rail drilled into the front of the underside to mount my keyboard tray.
  6. If you're on Sony, I've heard good things about the Sony 100-400mm GM and the Sony 200-600mm G. I have the Sigma 100-400mm, but it doesn't work with Sony's teleconverters, so I only get out to 400mm.
  7. I have the Linnmon desk top perched on two Finnvard trestles. https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/linnmon-finnvard-table-black-brown-white-s79047306/ The desk top sags a bit in the middle under the weight of my monitor, keyboard arm, and keyboard, but I like it.
  8. I'd go for 20.0. It'll be supported until 2025. (I'm running 19.3). Cinnamon is the most popular, but I'm one of the weirdos that prefers the MATE desktop. There's also a discord desktop app, so no worries. 17.3 was the best there ever was, but it's no longer supported.
  9. I second that. I have a 9 year old laptop running Mint and it works great.
  10. They also have no problem with making you buy the initial game that you then have to pay to actually play.
  11. I just use my monitor's built-in speakers. Good enough for me! If I want better quality, I just plug in my headphones.
  12. I just bought two trestles from Ikea ( https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/finnvard-trestle-with-shelf-white-80150095/ ) and a desk top ( https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/p/linnmon-tabletop-black-brown-00251338/ ) to put on top of them. Cost me about $100 CAD and I have a desk that I can customise the height and is easy to take apart since none of the three components are attached to one another.
  13. One of the reasons why I jumped ship to Sony years ago.
