The car is a tad underexposed in #2, and I'd like the lighthouse to be a bit further from the car. It looks like it might be growing from the hood. Sort of a CRX unicorn. ;)
Fun car though. I miss my Honda more than anything else I have owned.
If you have automatic updates set to a weird time (when your not around) it will fire itself up, install the updates, and then go back to sleep. But if the update requires a restart it will restart and require you to go through the whole ordeal. Mine did it a few nights ago.
I've never found one that I was really happy with, but I've only had four. I end up getting a new one every year or so, and then selling it when the little event that I bought it for is past because for most of my photos I simply don't like the P&S lack of versatility. I don't mind carrying...

And as the child of two retired E-8's I can understand that one fully. Thank you for your service.
More levels of sensitivity, keys with displays (so you know what they do, because each can be assigned unique functions), the scroll ring has four functions, the pen is redesigned (.5" shorter, so it's a bit easier to use), etc... There's a lot of changes.
