100000 People Evacuated Hill Fire And Woolsey Fire

Thousand Oaks Fire
Caos in Thousand Oaks as fire smoke and ash decend upon the town

Soon after the hill fire blocked out the sun the Woolsey fire crept into Thousand Oaks and Agoura Hills overnight.During the late night 75000 residents in Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, and Calabassas were evacuated and 13 structured were charred. With the fast blowing winds the fire soon jumped the 101 freeway and began advancing towards Malibu Lake. The famous movie set Paramount Ranch where movies have been filmed since the 1920’s had burned to the ground. WITHIN a few hours 30000 more people were forced to evacuate in the city of Malibu. Many more million dollar estates were burned to the ground in Malibu as the fire advanced through the canyons to Pacific Coast Highway. This fire is only at about 15 percent contained. The terrain is very rugged throughout the canyons with alot of dry brush, Oak Trees and Manzanita bushes for the fire to consume. The relentless Santa Ana winds have made this blaze nearly impossible for the firefighters to extinguish. The fire began at the old Rockadyne facility in the Simi Valley Hills and overnight jumped the 101 freeway and quickly made it’s presence known in Malibu. Residents are now returning to their smoke damaged homes in Agoura Hills, Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, and Malibu. These are the worst fires in California History. It is time for the Power Companies to bury their electrical lines no more expensive devastating excuses. For update information you should contact the fire department of the sheriffs department in either Ventura County or Los Angeles county.

There are many hotels in many cities and towns around the world. A majority of these hotels you will not hear of because they are not listed on sites like Tripadvisor.com, Trivago.com, Booking.com, Expedia.com, or anywhere on the internet. The best way to find these super cheap hotels is to fly to your destination and ask the cab driver what area has the cheapest hotels. In places like Bangkok, Thailand, or Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and India, they have many very affordable accommodations catering to the backpackers. By walking around and asking various hotels what their rates are I was able to find a private room, with maid service and a shower for $7 per a night in Bangkok, Thailand. In Vietnam I found even better accommodations for $10 per a night. You can get these rates even lower by negotiating a weekly rate or a monthly rate. You can even do this in the United States. Look for hotels owned by Indian people, from India. They will generally give you a discounted weekly or discounted monthly rate. If you want save on food, learn where the locals are eating and shopping. This is how you can save big when traveling.

Photography tip Nikon F6 Versus The Nikon F3

Both the Nikon F6 and the Nikon F3 are professional film cameras. The Nikon F6 came out in 2004, and the Nikon F3 came out in the 1980’s. The Nikon F6 was a very heavy camera it was like wearing a dumbbell around your neck. However, the Nikon F3 was a much lighter mechanical camera, and in my opinion more reliable than an older used Nikon F6. In fact the Nikon F6 that I had purchased would intermittently expose the entire roll of film. Overtime just like with other electronics the circuit board is more likely to fail on a Nikon F6. Therefore, if you are shooting film I strongly recommend that you purchase the Nikon F3. Nikon no longer calibrates many of their older used film camera lenses; you will have to find a specialist that can re-calibrate your lenses that you purchase. Whenever you use a lens frequently over time that lens will drift out focus, and your images will be soft. To have a lens calibrated it will cost around $250.

You can purchase the Nikon F6 brand new at bandhphoto. You can find the Nikon F3 used on Ebay.

PC Maintenance Tip How To Improve Windows Computer Performance

Why is my Windows computer slow? How to speed up Windows. Why is my computer running slow?

Here’s how you speed up your windows computer. You may notice a significant performance enhancement by following my detailed instructions.

The first thing you would want to do to improve your computer’s performance is to see what programs are running at startup. Whenever you install a program it will be running at startup and in the background after you login to your Windows desktop. These running Windows computer programs use up both the processor and the memory, and this can significantly decrease the speed of your Windows computer.

Here is how to use the system configuration utility to turn off running applications.

Hold down the windows symbol on your keyboard and press r.

When the small run dialog box appears type msconfig and press enter.

Now the system configuration window appears. Select the startup tab. Now you will see a list of all of the programs running on your windows computer at startup.

Uncheck the boxes of the programs that you do not want running at startup.

You will still be able to open these programs later, it may take a little longer to open them. When you use an application like Photoshop or Lightroom, these programs will work faster and with a quicker response time. I would leave a few programs that you use regularly checked. When you are done unchecking the program boxes, click apply, and then ok. A small dialog box will appear asking you to restart your computer. You should save all of your work and exit any programs, and restart your computer for the changes to take affect. Do not uncheck the box for your virus scanner.

Donations for a new long lens would be greatly appreciated. God Bless!
