The Nikon Message Center has always worked here ..... eventually. Very slow. I just go to the Nikon website and download because it's faster.
Nice pix of foxes; we went out looking at Christmas lights on Christmas eve and saw six foxes in about three blocks, around a small park. The first fox was sighted on Fox street, of course. What motorcycle? I ride a H-D, 2005 Road King, the wife's is a 2005 Sportster.

Yeah, I have no explanation why the message center never worked. Set it up with my camera and NX info. But it always reported no updates available when I checked it.
As stated I read here about a newer version then I had, so I went to Nikons download site and just found what I needed and installed without a hitch.

You found a fox on Fox street!! LOL
Thanks for the kind words, you have quite a nice gallery of images also. Those foxes were at the Lakota Wolf Preserve. I have seen a red fox in the park where I usually walk and train my dog, but have not been able to get a shot of it yet. Murphys Law, whenever I have the camera I do not see the fox, and whenever I see the fox I dont have my camera!! LOL

The bike is a Yamaha V-Star 650. I do not ride as much as I used to so I cannot justify buying an H-D. Heck I really could not justify buying the V-Star either, but having owned a bike for the last forty years it would seem odd not to have one. Thought about selling it, but it is nice to have on those beautiful summer days!!
Well, I live on Washington Street, and there are a pair of red foxes that den up in my compost pile most winters. If I get up and look out at the right time I have "foxes on parade" in the early mornings.

Any more, I am always camera-equipped. I have been getting quite a few shots of foxes, and coyotes trotting up and down main street in Littleton, a neighboring community. Also a good shot of two coyotes and a fox coming across the reservoir on the ice last winter.

Me too. I put together my first Harley from parts and pieces in 1963, the Road King is the 29th Harley for me, and the first one I ever bought new. Also a sprinkling of Italian and Brit bikes in the last 40-45 years. With electric jacket and gloves I usually ride from 300 to 330 days a year.

One of the other posters has reported an issue with his browser and, at least yesterday, the message center was useless on a laptop here using Internet Explorer, but 5 minutes later worked perfectly with Google Chrome set as the default browser. Go figure......
