WHO????

Fraught with risks, I know, but to keep this an open, democratic group, we take all comers. Don't we? :blink:

I just sent Jim17x a PM. Hopefully we'll hear shortly.

The camera survived months in some unknown region in Denmark. What could possibly go wrong in Illinois?

A good word to use, considering that the last one was like pulling teeth...

I yam of the opinion that if you haven't been part of the thread, you probably don't care. Show me three threads that this person has posted in this forum.

As camera is now moving again (since Steve received the Olympus, to be right), here is an update for the "speeds" :

From my notes, the Oly, in 306 days, travelled 14,376 km (8,933 miles) until Rick's home. So, it was moving at a mean of 47 km/day or 29 ml/day, or wathever unit you'd like..

Even if the Leica was now back at home, I should mention here the facts :
According to Shawn, the Leica made is periple in 367 days, at I found it travelled 27,114 km (16848 miles), Brooklyn to Brooklyn ;) Average speed : 74km/day or 45ml/day...

Dude! Nice work, but should we be slightly worried about you?

For National anthem, "We will rock you" or "I want to break free" ???

Anything would be better than the one we currently have.

And none in two months. No participation in this thread since October 2012. 4 posts total, all before camera's launched.

This ain't my round, these aren't my cameras, but knowing how these things work, not a good bet. I have nothing against the guy, but zero participation means he just might not be interested enough to do the right thing.

Agreed! WTF are ramparts, anyway?

Mebbe we should have a rule that all who participate need to post on the thread at least once every other week,stay tuned in.

God Save the Queen has no ramparts in it.

Agreed, tim. Nevertheless, since we did open participation on a first-come basis, we should attempt to hold to it. The best compromise may be to give him a few days to affirm his interest, and then move on. We'll give it a few more days, and if he hasn't responded, we'll move on. This is in line with the rules we posted early on.

But you raise a great point. How to best minimize the risk, knowing we'll never truly eliminate it? We've thought about setting minimum participation criteria, and we should have that discussion in earnest, but I hate the idea of leaving new voices and participants out. We've all been there once, right?

Yep. Steve is from the Isle of Wight, UK.
Its historic name was Vectis, which Minolta appropriated for its somewhat odd APS SLR.

Our local bus company also uses Vectis in its name: http://www.islandbuses.info/

I know what a rampart is but what has that got to do with the national anthem?

Fort McHenry has ramparts. You just need to know where to look.

We all know the beetles just couldn't find anything to rhyme with Vectis, it was just too dear.
