Looks very nice.

 

I see you use Joomla, try turning on cache. This should give a nice performance boots. (http://www.sitegroun...speed.htm#cache)

I would recommend to set the cache time very large(1440+ minutes) because site change hardly.
 


In Topic: Advise on a charger to a NiMH battery pack Ds125

The Smart Charger for Li-ion can't be used: http://www.ikelite.c...rt-charger.html

As far I know they are  simple NiMH packs with no electronics. So any charge which can charge 6 cell NiMH should work, but I guarantee nothing.

 

EDIT: You may be can find someone who has taking the battery-pack apart, so you are sure no electronics are inside. See also this topic: http://wetpixel.com/...ic=24457&page=3

Thanks for tip, a toothbrush and some vinegar solved the problem.


In Topic: 2 analog strobes

Strobe are turn on by short circuit. 

If both strobe are very similar no problems but if the difference is big, then you have problem if you have wire them in parallel. (the strobe with lowest resistance turns on)

A solution could be to wire one via hotshoe and the other via PC connector.
