GoDaddy e-mail (SecureServer) — Appears We Are Using Software Under Test.

by Anura Guruge

GoDaddy e-mail, late this afternoon, was even MORE temperamental
than usual.

Did YOU notice that?

I then happened to glance at the URL because I tried to REFRESH the tab.


Saw the word ‘beta’.

In the computer/software industry that indicates something

See this official definition of ‘beta software‘.

So we are using, right now, ‘Beta’ software
— i.e., software that is still being TESTED.

That explains everything.

Nikon’s 1″ ‘Premium Compact’ DL Cameras, e.g., DL24-85, Delayed Until October 2016?

by Anura Guruge

The three intriguing, claimed to be “Premium” 1″ Sensor Nikon “DL” cameras were announced on February 23, 2016.

They were expected to be available in June 2016 and I even talked about the Nikon DL24-85 in a February 2016 post — saying ‘June’ was a lifetime away!


From “DPReview.com”. Use above ‘announcement’ link to access this page. Click to ENLARGE and view here.

Then came the delay due to the earthquake in Japan that impacted Sony sensor shipments — and Nikon, like Fuji and Pentax, get some of their sensors from Sony.

But folks who should know and care, such as “Nikon Rumors“, as recently as June 14, 2016 was claiming June 30, 2016 availability. Well June 30 was over 2 weeks ago and no sign of any of these three cameras.

Amazon’s listing, July 19, 2016 for the Nikon DL24-500mm stating “not yet released”.

The latest ‘talk’ is that these 3 cameras have been delayed till October 2016! Wow. That is a blow. Much could happen in that time.
