    Publicity seems to have been a bit haphazard, but it looks as though Argus Day is actually intended to happen. Since we're at 2008, Argust 8th is the day, that's this coming Friday. Last year I did a CLA, maybe this week I can calibrate the rangefinder on my C3 "Brick."

    Mr. Surprenant seems to have changed ISPs, orphaning some previous years' info, and the Argus Collectors Group appears to be part way through a transition from Tripod to their own domain. For a while I found it a bit tedious to sort out what was going on.

    I just recently learned the ACG folks also have a presence on Flickr.

    Anyway, I anticipate putting a roll of something through the old brick, perhaps recording a few local/historical landmarks.

    I inherited a mint brick from my father in law last year, so maybe I'll give this a whirl next week.
