Satellites – through the countries of the USSR

When the USSR collapsed 15 countries were created. This is a series of photos and commentary by Jonas Bendiksen who has been a Magnum nominee since 2004 so you know his images are good.
The spoken commentary that runs through the slide show help to bring the photos to life.

Blogs Moved To New Server

This site and all the other blogs hosted at ILUG Blogs have been moved to a new machine! This one is a lot nippier and has a lot more RAM! Thank you Dell for donating the machine!
DNS will take a while to propogate so strange things may happen for a while, but Colm has a proxy running which should help a lot!

Fun Lovin' Pictures

The Fun Lovin’ Criminals played last night in The Savoy in Cork. This is the second time I’ve seen them play. The last time was in the Show Grounds in Blackrock when I got down there early and into the enclosure in front of the stage. At the time I thought the performance was great but the sound quality was terrible!
Part of FLC’s attraction for me is the great lyrics. On their studio albums Huey’s voice can clearly be heard, but their live performances leave a lot to be desired. It was difficult to make out what song they were playing from time to time as the sound was so fuzzy and loud!
The concert was disappointing for me. They played several encores but I felt like leaving before they were finished. I still love their studio work but I don’t think I’ll be going to see them play live again.
Mel was there too and thinks the same about their sound quality.

Photos taken with my Panasonic FZ5, usually at 12x zoom. Sorry about the bad quality!
