    darn...
    even Cameron Highlands had free wifi at the local Starbucks...

    ok will take your advice into consideration!
    sounds like you're quite familiar with the country?

    I think all starbucks have free wifi. Problem is, compared to other coffee places in Europe, starbucks taste like piss. So there are not many starbucks around.

I took this during yesterday's sunrise:

    Not really lah..I was there 3yrs back for work. And seriously they are not so 'charitable' in providing free wi-fi in common areas/establishments like we have here.

    If I remember correctly even Starbucks doesn't have free wi-fi when I was there, unless they started to 'open' up their 'traffic' now.

    I really wanted to shoot. After all the sian-ness I am feeling scratching my brand new focusing screen.

    I was so depressed until my wife offered to buy me a new cam... But I told her focusing screen can change one and only cost 100.

    Goes to show how much she loves you, you're one lucky lad!

    But my advice is also to change the focus screen... brand new cam just costs too much... I think you already know what to do. Good lad!

    Btw, I feel your heartache... I would too if I was in your shoe. Take it easy.

    It's just a piece of precision plastic (I think, not glass) that is under your mirror prism that is reflecting the images to your view finder. There should be focus squares with fine wires as well (which may or may not be on the focusing screen)... I haven't taken out mine, so may not know so well...

    How it ACTUALLY works.... time to google once again...

    You can change it yourself if you know where to get replacement part and the proper tool to release the screen. I think DD123 can show you a website (how they change the screens to split focus type)...

    Actually, i am still going to use the focusing screen la. No point changing. It is only nicked at the top right corner.

    My original one is still fine.
