Depends on your browser, how you have it set up and which platform you're running, but yes, it does take a little longer because it has to download and start a programme. In my case that extra second or two is worth it to obtain information..

My 3GHz+ machine can't find a file title in a folder of a few hundred files in 10x that amount of time, let alone searching the text of those files.

I know, I know, Google has indexes (indeces?), rooms filled with stupid fast servers, drives, etc. but still - that's a s---load of stuff that it has to comb through in that 1/10th of a second - absolutely incredible.

Unhappy Vancouver Island HD Calibrations?

Is there anyone who does calibrations here on Vancouver Island? I know Michael TLV does some on lower mainland when he gets to the coast but there must be someone that will do the island.

Nuje,

Google is rendering the HTML from the PDF so it is a quick turn-a-round. That is why it has usually mucked up the formatting.

Do you know if they have all of the proper calibration equipment? And if they are ISF certified?

I enquired about a year ago. At that time the tech had not had his ISF training nor did they have all of the equipment they had ordered. I decided not to be the "first" and to wait awhile. Cheers.

relocating to Victoria

I am an expat returning to the TGWN after 8 years residing in the SF/BAy area. I am posting to this thread because I will be residing in Victoria and I wanted to know what my options are regarding HDTV/Cable/Satellite providers. Is Shaw the only player in town?

Cheers

Expressvu offers your best selection. They have some good deals on HD receivers compared to 6 months ago and you can also rent them or you could the last time I looked. Personally I think renting makes the best sense with developing technology.

Welcome back to the second greatest place on earth. (I live in Nanaimo and that's number one.

ISF Calibration course

If I was interested in taking an ISF Calibration training course in the Toronto area, does anyone have any ideas on where this course would be offered?

Thanks,

Brian
