I'm a Microsoft Software Development Engineer on the Trustworthy Computing Team. I've worked at several security related places previously, including Malware Bytes and PreEmptive Solutions.

On StackOverflow I mostly answer related questions, though I occasionally forray into and a couple of others.

I am the author of pevFind, a component of the ComboFix malware removal tool, and volunteer at BleepingComputer.com as a malware response instructor. My Twitter account is @MalwareMinigun.

Monopod won't help; it has the same problem the tripod does (even if the camera isn't moving, the players are)

comment Could a filter damage the curved front element of the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM?
Before using a UV filter just for protection, you may want to consider photo.stackexchange.com/questions/1393/… photo.stackexchange.com/questions/57/… and lensrentals.com/blog/2008/10/front-element-scratches

comment Is there any significant difference between Nikon and Canon?
Lol -- I suppose this would matter if one has multiple cameras. it's going to be quite some time before I end up there; though I can see how that might be a problem. Was it common to have cameras from several brands in those days?

comment Why do my photos look better on an iMac?
@jrista: Dell's Uxxxx displays (at least, the U2711 and U3011) are CCFL displays, and they all have 96% (Adobe). (Reference: anandtech.com/show/2922/3 )
