    Bonus question: given that J&C have some form of association with Fotoimpex.de (after all they are "fotoimpex.us") are we to follow a red thread all the way back to John, or does his project have nothing to do with this endeavour?

    Use your common sense, there aren't two different projects.

    Ian, even the obvious needs confirmation!

    Read the posts from Fotoimpex in the thread ..... they are, after all, the parent company.

    What a great project to be working on.
    I loved the old Portriga graded papers. Would be happy to support them again.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Well, there are advantages to the French work/vacation ratio--- like a much, much lower incidence of coronary/artery disease than the U.S., despite a relatively high-fat diet. And it's not all due to the red wine. It's the wine, it's the ratio of fresh fruits and vegetables in the diet, it's the taking of a break religiouslyto have a good lunch, it's the longer vacation times, two weeks of which must be taken together, it's the walnuts, it's (IMHO) the enzymes in raw milk cheeses, it's the smaller (just right) portions of food in restaurants, it's the no junk food, it's the no junk snacks between meals . . . .

    And just to keep things in perspective: the productivity of French workers is actually higher than that in the U.S.

    Yeah, yeah, I know, sometimes they can be a pain in the patuckus, and their politics is as screwed up as ours, and their politicians as venal as ours, but hey, after living there for nearly ten years, I can honestly say that the quality of life far surpasses that in many parts of the U.S. And a much higher percentage of their population enjoys it.

    O/T, but...

    There's no doubt that, in the USA, there is some confusion that quantity of live is an acceptable substitute for quality of life.

    But your assertion that French workers are more productive is in error.

    Economic productivity has exactly one definition - value of goods or services produced per unit cost.

    You must be citing an alternate interpretation and I'm curious as to the source.
