It's Australia Day today so I get the day off work.

To celebrate, I cleaned my flat, made myself sausages and rice for breakfast, got high, and am now eating breakfast and browsing the fora.

You can buy SATA/IDE to USB adapter cables for ~$20 at most computer stores (or online). You could try pulling the HDD out of your laptop and plugging it into another computer via the adapter cable.

Re: Buying a digital camera (questions)

That's a lot of money for a lens when you're getting started. Start with primes, not zooms. They'll make you a better photographer. Especially with all the dark shots you just showed, you'll want to be looking at F1.4 50mm lenses sooner than later. http://www.sigmaphoto.com/lenses/lenses_all_detail...
