    Tip, if you're looking to buy your first camera, ask if you can buy a display camera for cheaper. I got my first camera and lens (Nikon D3200) for $175 at Best Buy, got my skills down, and eventually upgraded.

    I use a Canon Rebel T6 and I bought on eBay as a kit. my go-to lens is my 75-300mm because it gets so close to the cars and gets the detail so well.

    Came across this gem assuming you can stomach the YouTube stabilizer: an old Formula Ford race at Bathurst. Featuring the most clusterfuck finish I've ever seen, as well as a very young Leigh Diffey commentating.

    So am I the only one who gets annoyed by this? Someone posts in the logos/decals section asking for help with a logo and/or font. When that person receives what they are looking for, they never reply with a thanks, etc or at minimum like the post. Am I the only one who gets annoyed by this? I was raised to show respect and be thankful no matter how small the gesture. Whenever someone helps me out, I always make sure to show my appreciation for that person because they took time out of their day to help me. I've posted logos before that I have time in and never get any thanks of any kind after I post it. Maybe it's just me.

    Someone decided to be a real piece of work this morning and smashed the back window out on my car...I was not alerted to this until mom came home from work for her break and told me. So now the car sits at the glass shop waiting for a new window. The person looks to have hit it with a hammer or baseball bat, and it looks like they missed the first time. They dented, bent and paint chipped the frame beside the back window. So that means I might have to pay my $200 deductible for something as small as the dent/paint chip. At least my window was covered by insurance...:rolleyes:

    I agree with that. I simply parked my car on the street in front of my house because I got home late last night and everyone went to bed by then. I've done that a few times and this is the time they strike. And my dad's truck was parked in front of me. But there was an empty bottle of Jack on the ground beside my car, so buddy was probably piss drunk when he decided to strike.

    I can't help but feel stupid when it comes to optimizing my graphics for NR2003 these days. Feel like ever since I upgraded my computer in 2017, what knowledge I had before just got thrown away, and I can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong now... lol :rolleyes::(

    When i got my current PC last year, I had to make changes to my NR2003 Graphics settings.
    When i had my laptop, I had been using -1 for my TextureSetSize, When i did the same for my current PC, It caused the graphics to spaz out big time on the more graphics heavy tracks with the more graphics heavy mods. but i've since then resolved the issue.

    Hot take: Bobby Unser and Buddy Baker are the same person. Change my mind.

    Fuck writer's block. Fuck burnout in general.

    That is all.
