Drupal - Articles http://huestones.co.uk/?q=taxonomy/term/2/0 Articles cover various topics. An article is a general discussion that stands independently of others. en Understanding Auto ISO on the Fuji X100 http://huestones.co.uk/?q=node/296 <p>The Auto ISO setting on the Fuji X100 had me confused the first time I used it. Initially my reaction was, this can't be right. Since, I have read many forum posts asking for a better explanation on how it works and why it does what it does, but I failed to locate a clear explanation. After much thought, I finally figured out the logic behind Auto ISO used by the X100. I assume the X100S works similarly.</p> <p><a href="http://huestones.co.uk/?q=node/296" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://huestones.co.uk/?q=node/296#comments Open Content (CC BY-NC-ND) Articles Technology Thu, 28 Nov 2013 23:20:26 +0000 Ali 296 at http://huestones.co.uk The Supercomputer Era http://huestones.co.uk/?q=node/291 <p>Edward Snowden, Bradley Manning, Julian Assange, these are some individuals who have suddenly splashed across the pages of newspapers and TV screens.

It does not require installation of any software except for the Internet browser itself. Web applications are a relatively new concept. There are some popular webapps around, the most well known are perhaps Facebook and Flickr and lesser known <a href="https://trello.com" rel="external">Trello</a>. The success of these webapps has prompted some companies to attempt to convert their traditional client only or client-server applications into webapps. But writing webapps can be far more challenging than writing traditional client only or client-server applications.
