    1) Took photos with Olympus PL-1 (reason, it has hot shoe where to put flash transmitter)
    2) I booted into Windows (to turn it into a virtual machine) first time in two or three months.

    Fortunately I was able to repair a Vivitar Series 1 70-210/3.5 (Tokina made) so may be some of my sins are forgiven. Repair was otherwise a success (just a cleaning and lubing mount so that aperture works ok) but I did lose a small bearing ball that gives clicks when you change aperture. Now I have a suitable lens for movie making ... . I have to find a suitable bearing ball in a month or so. The lens is in Olympus mount and I don't have adapter for it.

    Dave, you're silly !!
    By those standards I sin a lot, I shoot/try/own a lot of different cameras. The only significant facts is that when I went NEXless for a few days it didn't felt right and I bought one right back !

    Not the camera Claire, it was using Windows that was the sin. :)

    Nope -- using windows is an effect of going to hell, not a cause :)

    Saturday was really nice, nice Saturdays are usually followed by a hangover. Luckily the little boy (called pressi) was in day care till 3 PM there and I got a few pictures of him:
    P2011700_zpsb721a2bb.

    Unfortunately not with Nex but with Olympus PL-1.

    Light via Godox TT520 shot thru umbrella. Both clipped to a table top, Lens was Tamron 58A (70-210/4-5.6 and price paid was 8 GBP).

    That is probably the reason why us Windows programmers are paid nicely. Work is hell.

    Yep, you're not going to hell because of using Windows. It means you're already IN there ;)
