    Gadgets Recommendations for a DC 12V air compressor?

    Well, here's a random question for the crowd... any recommendations for a portable DC 12V air compressor, preferably one that also has an AC adapter? :) I've had a portal compressor as part of the gear I keep in the back of my vehicle for years now and I think it's finally died. It's a cheap...

    Blocker

    At home I've switched from AdBlocker+ & Privacy Badger to uBlock Origin on all our PCs. On my mobile devices I still use Chrome as my primary browser but lately have started using Firefox with the uBlock Origin add-on when needed/wanted.

    At the moment we don't have any ads displayed and basic EXIF is viewable by all members. Any donations (aka "subscriptions") go towards the Admin Coffee Fund. 😁

    For now just try disabling the ad blocker for Cameraderie.org and see if that makes a difference. 🙂 When I'm at my home laptop later tonight I will check our Amazon S3 logs to see if I can spot anything.

    @Irene McC Are you using any kind of ad blocker in your browser? The main Cameraderie server is hosted in the US but the attachment images are served from Amazon S3 servers internationally based on your region. Off the top of my head, I'm wondering if you're running something that may be...

    Thoughts on a new button at the bottom? The "Submit Nomination" button is a direct link to the 'nominate an image' thread.

    GAS GAS: Please Share your Latest Acquisitions Big and Small

    It's a phone that should serve you well. During the last round of updates I standardized all of the family to be the same phone model for everybody and went with the S20 5G FE; so far they've been doing great.

    Was the 'two deers' pic identified yet? I think we're caught up except for that one. And, you know, if you guys leave it up to me to find a good pic of 'two deers' I'll end up finding one that look like dogs. OK, they'll be dogs. Fuzzy dogs. From the Dogs thread. 🐶 😁

    For now the method of featuring images will remain the same, with the majority coming from member nominations and a few mods' team (and your local friendly admin') selections at their own discretion. I think it makes a good balance of member direct input and mods' team guidance. Feedback on...

    Matt, thanks for clarifying. Don't stop. If anything, we should nudge the rest of the team to feature some as well so it's a good mix of member nominations and mods' team picks. 👍

    Music The Amazing Emporium of Wondrous Tunes (aka: What are you listening to?)

    When I was a kid I had a cassette of old 'zany' songs from the 50's & 60's. I listened to that tape over & over again and is likely what led me to later on being a Weird Al fan. One of the songs on it was by Allan Sherman and to this day I'll still start singing this one at random times...

    Looks good and nice job with the LEDs! Your version has more lighting than most of the smaller lightboxes I see on Amazon. 👍 Oooh, nice thought of using flashes for lighting, something a lot of photographers might already have on hand. Are you using plain paper or cloth for the sidewalls to...

    MU-43.com now dead???

    I can't imagine VS would kill it without warning; my guess is they're doing maintenance (maybe moving it to new servers or doing their "Fora" software update) and that's their unfortunate holding page. 😲 EDIT: NikonCafe and TalkEMount are still responding so I'm going with the 'maintenance...

    For grabbing the URL of a single post, besides the methods mentioned above (thanks, guys!) the universal method is to click on the icon in the upper-right of the post that sort of looks like an angle with three dots. After clicking that icon you'll see a pop-up box with direct links to share...

    It's all good. 🍻 As Matt/MoonMind alludes to though, with it being a holiday weekend (for those that celebrate it) it usually means that traffic is way down so it was a good time to slip in an experiment or two.

    It's an experiment to check out something. The folks who've mentioned other forums where all of the reactions are shown instead of using a pop-up menu is done with a 3rd-party add-on that adds several features. I picked up a license for it and, after trying it out on our test install, had it...

    Personally I don't drink alcohol but will still use 🍻 with friends as a 'thanks' or 'cheers'. It rarely comes up but, for anybody who knows I don't drink, if they ask I just tell them it's root beer. 😁

    Thoughts in no particular order... On mobile devices do a 'long tap' on the 'Like' link to bring up the menu. In other words, instead of doing a quick tap on the 'Like' link, tap and don't lift your finger right away. The menu pop-up should appear. The XF developers modeled it after how...
