    Gentle Fellows,

    some of you may recall this thread. And so, what happened then? Well, not only did NiKoSperi fulfil his words, but he did not even want to be refunded for his (hear hear) REGISTERED shipping (no way I'm not gonna pay AT LEAST that, though!!!) and the package was ten times more cured than the avarage packets I receive for items purchased on the internet (with fragile lenses inside, perhaps...).

    I am extremely thankful to him. He has proven to be a true gentleman, in a time and a world where, and expecially in Italy, everyone else's trying to make gold even out of thrash. May his nobility not go unnoticed.

    Thank you, Nicola; and farewell to Technical Pan.
    I am really looking forward if I can help you in any way.

    Marco -
    Nikola IS a helluva guy! He lent me some critical experience when I was doing my first film speed testing... I mean... my teachers at school couldnt do that for me... and yet Nikola could from the other side of the world... pretty fancy Gentlemanly fare I'll say!
    Hear Hear!

    I think I'll uncork a bottle for this cause! (whatever else I write tonight- ignore it!)
    Nikola, if I ask you in marriage again, just let it slide OK... :wink:
    I know my fiance and your wife dont REALLY have to know about it.. right?

    Hi there Noah, nice to hear folks from Tucson! Been there in '95 and again in 2004, was living in N. Table Mountain Rd. I remember purchasing stuff at "Monument camera" and "Big-R cameras", plus at another folk's whose motto was "where everything clicks just right"... Funny! And there's that vinyl records bonanza "PDQ" in Tucson: I've never seen anything even similar to that anywhere else... If only that damned thing was closer... :wink:
