That can't just be happenstance. Maybe pesach?

Apparently.

Is 12K good for redemption?

No, but 12400 is only 100 short. Get a nice rep and they'll often gift you the extra points.

Tech Talk / Re: Which Camera Should I Get? Master Thread
« on: Yesterday at 11:08:01 PM »
I'm toying with the idea of upgrading to a dslr. I've been looking at the Nikon D3400 and the Canon T6i.

Which is better for someone who usually uses a point and shoot but is willing to learn? Which is better on automatic?  Is there anything else I should be looking at?

Cost is a definite factor.

If cost is a definite factor go with the D3300, it's one of the best values in photography these days. Considerably cheaper than the D3400, and nearly the same camera. The T6i is a bit better than both, but not really worth the price premium.

The official Canon equivalent to the D3300/3400 is the T6, which is a seriously weak camera.

Or you could go the mirrorless route and get the Sony a5100. For $50 more than the Nikon you get a waaay smaller camera, better frame rates, and infinitely better video. This comes at the expense of battery life (around 200 vs 600-700 shots), a viewfinder, remote connectors, ergonomics, and a plethora of cheap lenses which make moving up more accessible.

Lmao, you are connected to their service, how would they not know where you are?! They are just reminding you what you rates are, unlike some other carriers that bury their international rates in fine print.

Exactly. And there's no "following" here anyway. The phone connects with a tower, as it should, and so it knows where said tower is. Not exactly nefarious.

Dunno what the emoji's all about. Spooky, IMHO.

Not spooky at all. T-mo sends such a text whenever you arrive in a country, reminding you about the free data and cheap calls.

It was just interesting that I apparently connected to some Canadian cell towers during landing.

Personally, 2100 Southwest, or 2400 Alaska or United is alot more interesting

Sounds like a good way to round out the 10k Alaska accounts many of us have.

I see there's a video camera thread that's almost 5 years old so posting here:
Need a rec for a cheap but workable video cam (with a mic). Sound more important than video and both have to be avg to above avg. Preferably under $100. Any recs would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

LOL. You were doing good till the under $100 part.

What bothers me most is the lack of an Oxford comma in "See ads on pages 51, 61 & 63" :P.

1. Do I need to freeze my Polar Bear cooler before packing it, or can I pack it room temperature?

You mean the cooler itself? That could be room temp.

And you'd probably get a better answer to your second question in the kosher food while traveling thread.

Where the hell does Stogel get to stick in their ugly nose in TGU? We have enough from them in Europe..

My thoughts exactly.

I had them catered out of HAV as well.
