  1. Thanks for the comments guys.

    Yeh amcas is my company. That website wasn't doing very well in terms of enquiries, so decided to experiment with a more specific url and more image based site. Now getting two enquiries a day!!

    I did all the web design and photography, Nick let me know if you want a hand with your website add me to msn or something.



  2. Hi guys,

    I am doing a photo shoot at my uni's freshers ball this friday and i am going to be selling prints on site.

    What i would like is an access form where i can enter the customer details, choose the product and quantity they want and it works out the order total.

    I have made a form which works with entering customer details and choosing products from a drop down and then entering the quantity.

    What i dont know how to do is for access to work out the total cost by accociating the product name and with its price and then times it by the quantity.

    Can anyone help.



  3. The best way to learn the kicking and brake coordination is to do it on two wheels.

    Ride along stop with the back brake, then let go of the brake and kick/pedal forard a bit and then reapply the brake.

    Keep trying this until you shunt forward repeatedly. Then try it on the back wheel.

  5. Hi guys,

    I'm making a new website in flash for my company, i've downloaded a template off a template site and it has a gallery which changes pages by changing the x coord of the thumbnail layer if the layer is in certain places. I want to add a menu at the top which changes this x coord of this layer to a certain page, but i dont know how to get the action script to change values in a movie clip that is not _root.

    Any help would be great.



  6. I did use fill in flash (if thats what you mean by burst flash) but as it was a rather bright day (ISO 50 1/250 F6.3) didn't really 'fill in' as much as wanted, using it on TTL. Maybe could try it on manual, any tips?

    I know you always say photos from behind aren't as good which is true in most cases, but i do like the one of the down gap from behind, gives a sense of what the rider sees.

    I really can't wait to get out more with my camera taking more photos of trials as that was the third time ive been out with a decent camera and taken photos of trials.

    I was using a Canon 15mm Fisheye (180 view but reduced slightly due to the 1.3x mag on the body)

    on a Canon 1D Mark II N with a Canon 430EX Speedlite.

    On my next trials photo outing I'm going to try using a 28mm lens as i feel a good shot looks better without the distortion.

    As to the funky website gallery... Photoshop CS2 users File>Automate>Web Gallery... have fun :)

    Thanks for all the comments.

    F-Stop Junkie - if you could give some constructive critism that would be much appreciated either here or add me to msn.

    Theres a few more. Quality seems to have died a lot during upload :(

    As to the last pic, it looks a lot better on my screen, for some reason again during the upload it have got a lot darker. The original is more sepia and clearer.



  8. Hi guys,

    I'm hoping someone can help...

    Yesterday I was using my pc, went to the toilet came back and the system had locked up. So i hit reset and now it justs gets to the windows loading screen then reboots over and over :(

    After a few times i caught a glimps of the blue screen of death. Only pops up for a millisecond, but was enough time for me to get a photo of it and read what usuless message it has to say.

    It says, windows descovered an error so will reboot to prevent damage to my files... or something like that.

    Great! Windows is protecting itself to the point where i cant actually help it.

    Ive had no luck getting into safe mode or anything, so i have popped my hdd into another computer.

    My question is can i fix windows while its a slave in the other pc?

    I have windows and all my programmes on a smaller partition on the drive, so i know i can just reinstall windows but you all know how long that takes by the time i reinstall everything. Which i would normally just do but in 2 weeks time im getting a nice shiny new pc (when my student loan comes in) so i'm going to have to do all that then anyway, so just for now can i repair it?

    One problem I dont have a bootable win xp cd.

    Quick Spec:

    Win XP Pro

    160GB hdd with windows on a 40GB partition.

    Thanks for any help.


  9. Dual dvi looks quite expensive, I presume im running VGA as its not a brill gfx card.

    If a gfx card has VGA and DVI out is that enough to run two screens?

    Edit: My monitor says it has one analogue input i presum that means only VGA?



  10. Just wait for the punch to come in, drop you head slightly and bam Mr Chav has a broken fist. Works with and without a helmet.

    Usually just go look its a shit bike it has no seat, squeaky brakes, one gear, no suspension etc etc.


  11. Hi guys,

    I'm getting another TFT to match my current one, but my graphics card doesn't support two monitors so I'm going to need a new card.

    - I never play games, but maybe nice to have a card capable of doing so but not a neccesity.

    - I needs to be able to run extended desktop easily, i dont just want a clone monitor.

    - preferable around £50 but I'm open to suggestions.

    - I'm using a sumsung 19" TFT at 1280x1024 and i'd like to keep it at that so needs to be able to support two screens running at this spec.

    - I have also heard you can just buy a cheap PCI card and run it with my existing AGP card is this true?

    Thanks for any help,


  12. please don't say you trace the edges manually... must take ages.

    I knocked this up in 30secs...

    Tracing it will probably be better, but this is a far quicker option.


  13. For the price, you should go for the 350D over the D50. I know its £100 more but the D50 has a poorer build quality and image quality in comparison also a lot slow at processing images etc so not great for sport.

    Problems with point and shoot cameras like the S7000, although they do have manaul settings they never work any where near as well as a DSLR.

    Manual focus is generally impossible to use due to picture viewing on an LCD and using buttons which take a while to move the focus range.

    Apperture - even though they go down to F4.5 i can never get them to give a nice depth of field.

    Adavantages of the DSLR over point and shoot:

    -Near instant boot time - great for catching those unexpected moments

    -Far superior image quality

    -Brillant and quick auto focus with 7 points of focus (350D)

    -Far superior for sport (trials) photography with instant shutter and what you see in the view finder is waht -you get. With point and shoot using the LCDs you get a delay and you cant see the image as well. So getting a perfectly timed gap shot first time is difficult.

    -A lot faster image processing so you can take and take and take.

    -Compact flash cards more robust so more reliable and easier to handle when using multiple cards.

    -Massive choice of lens

    -Choice of flash guns rather than using poor inbuilt flashes

    - and loads more....


    They look a lot better becasuse they are a "proper" camera

    They feel so much nicer to use as they are a bit heavier and bigger making they more steady

    To sum up:

    If you want a decent camera that will get you some nice shots then a S7000 will be fine

    If you want to be creative with your photography and get stunning shots you will have to take the leap to DSLR cameras

    Hope that helps.


  14. Too much fancy shit in the video

    screw birds water and traffic lights we wanna see riding

    riding was decent though.

    Brilliant video, very nicely edited and great choice of music. Angles were good too and nice variation of moves.

    Refreshing to see after loads of the norm of heavy rock music and side hop that gap that repeated for 5mins.

    If it didn't have that "fancy crap" in it the video would get repetitive loose its quality.
