    Re: Long-distance web cam

    This is an unavoidable artefact of the webcam's large field of view and the lens's small aperture. Try forcing the lens aperture wide open (you might have to break it), or zooming in with the webcam...
  2. Re: Fair Go 8 Jun 11 Internet Banking Money Paid to Wrong Account

    I've always made up the account names, but I've also always triple checked the account number. Making up account names is quite amusing. Quite. Very amusing. I'm often amused by myself.

    Re: Quality Headphones

    I have a pair of HD595s and a pair of HD555s. The former are wasted on my crappy integrated nForce audio DACs, but the latter provide excellent sound for the price. Excellent.

    Re: Router question

    I agree that D-Link consumer products are rubbish. There's nothing wrong with their higher end range, though. It's just that none of their ADSL 4-port router combo equipment falls into this category....
