Sony Nex-3 - basic review

I have tried out a number of the camera on the Nex range of Sony Cameras, the Nex 3 & 5 are very good for hobbyists, reasonable quality and with adapters, it opens up a word great lenses, old and new.  The nex-3 is 14mp, and let due to sensor size and use of an average lens you get a far greater quality than a good end compact with more megapixels.  even with an old m42 lens, or even a CCTV lens, you can get some great shots.  So you can get these cameras for a very cheap price now, and a vintage lens may work out well for you, myself I've used Pentax lenses and found very good results.  street photography results aren't bad for a camera that's been around for a fair number of years. 

If you go for this camera at the right price, about £50 with cable but no lens then I think you'll get good results.  Alternatively look up the later models in the nex range or for higher end camera look up the A5000(£110 used and without lens) or the A5100(about £300 used and without lens).  Small mirrorless cameras off a sense of the DSLR market minus weight, cost, and options, so settings are streamlined and so will lack features with DSLRs, but you'll get what you need for college or hobby activity. 

I gave the Nex 3 the star rating 5, because it is cheap and effective, and unless you've got the megapixel fever, you'll be fine with the 14mp camera.

Didn't you know?

It is so easy to find butthurt on Youtube, some people don't realise how easy it is to find out a lot out then, their true names, the names of their kids, their home address, previous jobs, business activity, etc.  And how?  public information they leave public on social media. 

I used an example of Rose(Deborah) who left most of her data online for anyone to find, and with a little cooperation with various people to research evidence of her sexual activity online came to light.  needless to say I need not share her content here, her webcam stuff, semi-nude vlogs, etc.  Nor her personal details.  We found out a lot about her, and I don't want to know what has been found since.  Needless to say my view on Dropping Documents is you shouldn't.  

Why note this?  because you can be easily found online.  I know it's old news, but if you care about your information then I wouldn't leave it all public.  With Rose, she even had her failed business linked, her background, family links, and the fact she is an actress of sorts, while also being a spiritual healer. 

So the lesson is this, if I can find this then so can anyone. 












"Reverse Racism"???

"Reverse Racism"?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can be racist about your own ethnic group, a national group or another racial identity type. Well, if you wish, it seems silly to me, as does the term "reverse racism". However, the concept of racism by a person towards their own general group or type isn't reverse racism as much as racism... Unless we talk of this argument being used as a cheap fallacy to undermine an argument that is a matter of a recognised social inequality. That's if it is an inequality.
However, even inequalities can be selected or suggested, and even if institutional in one place/region the local concern may be far from so elsewhere. In such cases, it can easily far from proven.

In the end, doesn't everything that matters come back to what is evident??

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If we consider the evidence as opposed to reactionary opinions and selected factoids then what might be the best way to judge a case of this type of racism??

We shouldn't jump to conclusions, we cannot assume various facts nor selected quote for pro or con values to prop up a premise. And, we shouldn't confuse ignorance or indoctrination for malicious intentions. We could find our opinion are correct, yet until we're sure of this the barking of buzzwords is counter-productive and part of a mechanism to confront an argument while not truly engaging it. Just as any number of other methods used can respond to an argument while not truly arguing against it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

What are we left with after the dust has settled?

Our sound reasoning and our demand that we ever try to improve upon it.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Reverse Racism" is a term that expresses very little other than the wholesale labelling of people and arguments that fall just over an imagined fence. And this line in the sand shift accord to the thinker's political views, making it far from a practical term. It is a meme in internet culture and lacks a clear definition, not that this stops the usage of the term. Indeed, the very real problem with internet culture is how definitions of serious terms are made cartoonish or are warped by feelings, or, for that matter, the effect in an argument. And that is the root of internet terms, or those made popular via internet culture, they're a rhetoric device and not a sound scientific or philosophical tool.

A few thoughts - 7th Nov. 2017.


The dead of the illusion of eternal life may lead more people to respect each other. Who can look at a murder or accident and not feel that a billion moments was lost early?? Who would raise arms against another if they understood the cost, and unless they're taxed by life and those who seek to repress them they'll see that harm is objectively immoral. When times call for defence you do what you must, but when you have no need to do harm is poisonoius to all of us apart from the sociopaths who don't care and the psychopaths who enjoy inflicting pain upon others. 

The illusion crumbles but we like the good parts, so we might steal a few ideas and use them as a pseudo-belief and call it open-minded and spiritual while we're just trollin through ideas looking for the key to happiness.  And you may find a key in an unexpected place, beyond the magic and energy and day dreaming.  Where reason and hope run together, because a true immortality, or as true as you can get, is the mark you leave on the world.  Saving the world one step at a time and making things better for future generations.  No need to make up ideas or jump on a belief, but add something to the world, even if you're forgotten your acts will carry value as you make life for others a bit better.

Why I don't do Conspiracy videos???

A few people have requested that I focus on 'the real enemy', and I wonder who or what do they mean.  Without giving out names or too much detail they blame one or other group for the world's ills and think that simplistic view is why I should discuss and share thoughts with them. 

As if the suck they hate makes their suck suck less?!?!

Well, should I blame everyone for the world's ills??

Would it change anything??

And if your opinion is wrong then wouldn't I just be a sad fuck like you if I acted out with paranoid talk about Jews and the like??

The truth is many people find a group to blame, and when you disagree they call an agent. 

As if the CIA or MOSSAD pay my bills!
Or the Chinese Communists are funding my small flat in a not so cool part of this nation, Britain.

Well. what should I expect from the kinds of people who say this??

They start ranting about Freemasons or 9/11 being an inside job and just repeat what they were told in a documentary that may as well be a parody.

In this way, I don't see the point in attacking organisations or groups of people without cause.

Give me a case and point to cover and I'm there, crap over a keyboard and call it proof and I'll mock you. 



Post-Skyrim Civil War.

The Greater Nation of Skyrim.
[A Fan Scenario]



The dragonborn as a force in the war against imperial rule, forces out the imperial tyranny, effectively ending the empire, as only cyrodiil and high rick remain truly part of the empire.  The new skyrim returns to warrior culture traditions and the old Gods, and to increase his popularity Ulfric, Highking of Skyrim, at great cost, spreads more wealth to the people, lowing taxes while using his armies to end the bandit and forsworn drain on skyrims trade and resources.  Ensuring post-war prosperity.
 
A now united skyrim, with alliances with the great Orc strongholds and purged of its greatest internal weaknesses, the economy booms and trade with other provinces flourishes.  The casual racism of Skyrim in hard times fades as Man and Mer(such as the Dark Elves of Morrowind) find united efforts and Nord traditions make the nation of Skyrim mighty force.  Not that the nationalism of the sons and daughters of Skyrim is dead, simply where they can the Nords make use and co-operate with the other races.

The cost of the war is great, and the excuses for the large army and spending is to unite the province while culling it of bandits and highwaymen.  As well as the forsworn menace of the western region known as The Reach.  The cost in life is vast, years of conflict and a year of civil warfare have left many heroes in the ruins of fallen cities while families morn their losses.  Dragons and undead forces have done great harm too, Dragons destroying Helgen and attacking other settlments. 

The empire in this time of despiration agrees to trade with Skyrim for two reasons, it can't afford a war or cold war with Skyrim, and it needs to fund it's imperial legions to defend it's southern border against the dominion.  Although, it is obvious that they're living on borrowed time and the Empire is dead.  Likely fallout is the end of the Mede empire soon after with Cyrodiil becoming a Kingdom in Alliance to the disunited Kinglings of High Rock and Ulfric's Skyrim for a mutual defence.



And soon... Another war, the second great war, the war to end all wars.  Marking a dark age for all and the 5th Era.



Now...  Will this be the background to The Elder Scrolls 6?
