    I really like that first one! "In a Rush" Just curious, you mentioned that shot having a 30 second shutter. How long is possible?

    TBH I've never had my wallpaper disappear xD.

    I'd like to build a new system, as its been two years now but my system is adequate for my needs. It would be fine if I could figure out how to OC that 660 TI. I've bumped up voltage, power, core offset by 102 worked best, and I cannot remember what memory offset was. But the thing NEVER Exceeded 82% TDP and about 61 C (at 29C ambient) so I don't know what the deal is. Not only that, but I've been trying to purchase woodworking tools, I bought this...

    and I'm saving for another car... I need another job xD

    Cheers!

    I went into the S-mode on my camera (shutter priority) and set the shutter speed to 30 seconds. As the shutter was open the cars zoomed by on the road below and the camera was capturing that light and then when it closed I got that effect. :)

    Nice looking car btw. I always liked pop-up headlights! ;)

    There was a typo in my last post, Instead of "How is possible" I actually meant "how long is possible?" :D

    And pictures do that car too much justice because she's in rough shape, but yeah pop-ups are awesome! (until they fail)

    30 seconds is the max on shutter priority (and the longest shutter speed you can set) on my camera BUT there is a bulb mode that I can use to keep the shutter open for as long as I want. I just put the camera into bulb mode, press the shutter button to open the shutter and keep the shutter button held down for long as I like. When I release it the shutter closes. There might be a limit on that but I've done 90+ second exposures with that.

    I have a handy wireless remote that has a shutter button on it. That is the best thing for night photography because obviously there is no camera shake because I don't have to hold anything down on the camera. And I just press the button once to open the shutter and once to close it with my remote. :D

    These were done on bulb mode handheld:

    ...and all of the other firework ones that are there (just press the next button a few times! :D)

    Windows 10 Preview on the ThinkPad. I'm liking this OS a lot. Not sure why people here are moaning about the Start Menu. I personally prefer it to the one in Windows 7 - I can pin the apps I use most to it for easy access.

    The OS feels stable and there's only a few minor problems I've come across. Very impressed for such an early build. :good:

    Everything I've installed works apart from the touchpad gestures which is a little annoying but not the end of the world.

    Jason, have you been gaming on it? I'm curious if there are any performance issues.

    I dragged a ton of icons over to my other monitor to make my desktop look cleaner :p

    No because it's installed on my laptop, not my desktop.

    So far everything that worked on 8.1 has worked fine on 10 Preview for me (apart from touchpad gestures - not sure if that's an OS or a driver problem), so I would assume that most games and graphics drivers will work OK.

    I see you use F.lux. I used to use that, but I don't want to ruin my good IPS monitor :)

    Here's my desktop. Time for something new, as it's not really fall anymore.

    That's a pretty sweet Forester. A little too "slammed" for my taste though.

    Useless post is useless :rolleyes:

    I suppose I should have said I don't like them because they're ugly.
