Queensland Tourism have been on television here on the local current affairs programs saying that its just a way to promote the area and to attract more tourists. Their not denying that its a publicoty stunt.

There has already been about 106,000 people check out the dream job advert and 150 people have already submitted applications. So thinking there is a few people interested in the job.

So as a care taker, will that allow you to report to the world media about how the Queensland Goverment is allowing the waters around the Great Barrier Reef to be used for the commercial fishing of sharks. I bet thats one thing you won't be able to put in your weekly blog for the world to read.

In Topic: Your Favourite Photo of 2008

Firstly I'd like to say how good everyones pics are and thank you for sharing them with us.

Here is my favourite pic for 2008.

Attached File  Thermocline.jpg   397.57KB   160 downloads

I know its not to the same standard as most, but for me as a novice I like it.
It was taken on a safety stop in Crystal Bay, Bali. Our safety stop was in the middle of a Thermocline and I thought I'd just experiment with a few shots taken through the haze of the thermocline. Although it lacks a complete focus, I seem to think that it almost looks like the corals and fish in the centre of the picture are from a painting. It's for this reason that I think it's different and my favourite pic for 2008. Hopefully someone else will agree with me.

Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone one who has given me advice, answers and added confusion to all that I've asked this year.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all.

Thanks Marli,

All this info is just getting so confusing for someone who doesn't have a head for all things technical, wondering if its worth all the trouble. Although the features of the hack are very tempting. Guess I'll just have to try it and see.

I bought my camera just over a year ago so guessing I'll probably need the 100e file. I'm currently using ScanDisk Ultra II 2.0GB cards, but with the price of SD cards these days I think I might even just go and get another and load the Hack on to it. Is there any specific SD card that you find works best?

Have just been looking on the CHDK downloads site. I was going to download the file for my 570IS but now have another question. I know I need to download both the 1.00E and the 1.01A versions and work out which version works with my firmware, but is it best to use the Complete or Small download?? Just something else to confuse me.
