I don't think I've ever heard a cricket fart? Or, could it be that we've been mistaking their farting for chirping all these years?

Sneak up behind a chirping cricket with a lit match-- if it's suddenly rocket propelled, there's your answer!

Geez, if I'd known you were going to get Sile onto the backsliders, I'd have hung onto the camera. :devil:

I'd be much more concerned about your backside than your backslide. :blink:

Should I use cricket-sized matches? ;)

They can be hard to find. We should ask someone from England- they have lots of cricket matches over there. :happy:

Haha. Always back to the fart jokes with this crowd. See what happens when the cameras sit idle for too long?

On that note - just heard from Suraj (tron_). Sounds like he is about ready to get the Leica on its way, so that is good news.

Unfortunately, no response from Nicholai on the stylus, despite repeated PMs. We have thus far avoided invading anyone's personal internet space during this round (emails, phone calls, etc.), but the time has come.

We've said all along in these forums that there is absolutely no problem with delays, but we cannot move forward with delays plus silence.

Thanks.

Yes, the Leica will be on it's way by the end of the week at the latest. Sorry for the delay (and more importantly the silence) this is a great project and I hope I can do the camera justice!

Well, it beats sheep innuendo...

Speaking of which, did you know that New Zealand (don't tell Sean this) is among the top three producers of sheep methane in the world?

I'm next to get the Leica and I'll be out of town until this Saturday night. Leaving first thing in the morning for a fall-trip in the U.P. of Michigan. My wife will let me know if the Leica arrives and, if I find a wifi connection up there, I'll let you guys know, too. : )

Cool! That means I'll be next up! And then finally back home to Shawn, so we can see what kind of an adventure the camera had this past year!

Admire your passion, Tim!

Got an email last night from Nicholai about the Stylus. A couple of personal issues caused the delay, but the camera is safe, and he appears to be fine now. He hopes to have it moving shortly.

Suraj or tron_ (with the Leica) should be sending it to Marc soon (if he hasn't already done so). Just waiting for confirmation.

Not much in the way of hard progress, but getting there!

Tick tock... time needs to be weeks, not months. The project gets less interesting every day.

Great to hear he's ok! Glad we're moving again!

We could always start Camera 10 while we're waiting...
