    Essential Brussels

    Right, I've got 36 hours in Brussels. I'm a bum who doesn't like spending money, but I will drink beer and eat chocolate. I like museums and shit. The historical kind preferrably, but that doesn't really matter. What should be squeezed into the essential Bruxelles experience? Also, I need a...

    Anyone ever been here? What's it like? There's not a lot of tourist information around that I could find. It has wild bears. We want to see the bears.

    Losing one's camera....

    Yeah so, I left my camera behind me in the IFI yesterday….they say there’s no sign of it now. What should I do? Tell the guards? Check the buy and sell? Is there a code on the camera or something that can be used to identify it? I’m assuming my odds of recovery are pretty much nil.

    Do you use your local library?

    Y'know, the library is free. It rents DVD's, CD's and books for free. You can use your library card at any library in your area (as in, I can get stuff from any library within the South Dublin City Council area). Even their late fees are cheaper than the video shop. And it's a place to go when...

    Sunday touristy stuff on the Northside?

    Yo, Sunday, I intend to go to the Blessington basin to take a look at it. While in that neck of the woods, what is else is worth looking at of a Sunday afternoon? The Northside isn’t all syringes and tracksuits and the bleedin’ fordins is it? Is it? Enrich me with your knowledge of...

    Old College books, what to do?

    Yo, I have millions of books from college that I've kept for some sort of nostalgic reason. But really they're useless to me and I hate them. Many are out of date now. Is there a place I can take some of them where they'll be put to good use? Or should I just feck em all in the bin?

    35mm prime or 50mm prime for a 400d?

    Yo, bear with me… DSLR’s produce “a "focal length multiplier," typically 1.5x or 1.6x.” Thus, a 35mm prime on an EOS 400D would give the closest equivalent to "normal" perspective. So, if I wanna take photo's of things as they look to my eye, would I be better off getting this 35mm...
