Having recently completed the St John’s Ambulance Providing First Aid course, I thought it would be good to evaluate the First Aid Kits that I have and see if they need sprucing up. Shockingly I discovered that I only had one kit for the home, none for the car or bike. After checking the home kit, which, I believe, is very comprehensive, I went looking for a kit for the car and for the bike.
Thought I’d try my hand at producing a timelapse video, I’ve seen quite a few over the years and really like the city scenes, night sky and nature footage. But, before I go hard-core and setup my Sony SLT-A55 DSLR, tripod and automatic remote trigger, I wanted to do some experimentation and understand the full process involved from capturing the initial photos through to editing and creating the output video.
We’ve booked a long weekend break at a holiday home down south, and planned to drive the 5 hour journey, the family car has just been serviced and we’re all set to go. Flicking through a local car parts and accessories catalog it dawned on me that I don’t carry any extra tools in the car apart from the standard wheel changing kit that came with the car.
In my previous post I listed out items I thought were essential for motorcycle riders, however I felt recently that there were still things missing from this list. I’ve now added a few more bits and pieces to my gear and think I’ve now got a comprehensive set of tools and accessories should the worse happens when out riding.
Similar to my article posted previously regarding the omission of SVN tools in OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, it seems Apple have dropped the feature again on OS X 10.9 Mavericks. I’m beginning to think that the non-inclusion of the SVN tools is now the de facto standard, and will be missing on all future OS X versions.
