Hi Shawn,



ftn is the said abbreviation for "fortnight" (If I believe the Wikipedia page about the FFF system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FFF_system))
For ftm it's for "fathoms" units !

Best regards,

Raphael

If you can fathom it, remember to convert "fortnight" to "fartnight" for Fred's part of its journey!

I had an interesting experience a few years back. I had received a shipment from B&H, emptied the goods from the box, and was deflating the airbags. Caught a distinct whiff of corned beef. It's a shame the air intake on that machine wasn't a few feet lower...

Best to not be after Fred in the odor-uh, order. The last person who followed him was aghast!

The problem, if we curse him with the old 40-days-of-rains malediction, he will have even less opportunities to take his shots ! :(

No. I haven't had any contact. I assume I should be contacted before it is posted to confirm my address.

No new shoulder here, the most noteworthy event last week was an unintended and failed attempt to cut off the tip of my left index finger with a pair of garden scissors. Note to self: no more gardening in the dark. Continuing on the left/right handed theme of Rick, I did notice after the event that I'm not as right-handed as I thought I was. Anyway, still seems like a very minor incident compared to getting a new shoulder, so: good luck to you, Shawn!

As for the whereabouts of the cameras... The Olympus was last seen a week ago on Monday, when I handed it over to a lady at the post office. And YES, she was standing on the other side of the desk, YES, she was in a uniform of sorts, NO, it was not just a random customer. Haven't heard of it since, although the track and trace system tells me that it has arrived in Denmark. Arrived, not neccessarily delivered. Waiting for more news.

This appears to be the latest mention about the Stylus' whereabouts. From mid-June. If Nicholai received the camera, it would have been several weeks ago. I've sent him an IM and will send an email tomorrow.

Methinks the rains are coming. We used to have the hounds ready to go for something like this.

Indeed, I seem to be (for the moment) the last one on this forum to have held the camera in my hands.
Before sending it off, I exchanged a few PMs with Nicholai, each answered within a few days at most.
After sending it, and letting him know I did, I have heard nothing. Well, that's not true, he acknowledged my PM that it was on its way. Nothing since.

Aye, thou art speaking truth. I am not named aghast. And true it is, I am not a part of the Great Endeavour, but as a dog, which doth bark and make noise at sheep which do kneel for the one who barketh and maketh noise not from his mouth.

I am grateful to thee for thy words of question, for I indeed disfavor'd the fowl.

Aye, thou art speaking truth. I am not named aghast. And true it is, I am not a part of the Great Endeavour, but as a dog, like unto one which doth bark and make noise at sheep which do kneel for the one who barketh and maketh noise not from his mouth, and which sheep are spare'd only if such man as who stinketh hath first choke'd the chicken.

:D ROTFL ! "...maketh noise not from his mouth". Excellent !


I think immediatly about medieval English when seeing "thee", I wish I could wrote something funny on this line but I don't masterize the language enough.

Methinks we shalt talk soon about the Holy Hand-Grenade of Antiochus ! :D

I might think that be the cloaking of thine chicken faire or fowle.
