    Now is this
    a) A troll trying to get a reaction.

    b) An ironic comment on the lack of education which allows the marketing men /women to win.

    c) An actual example of the Yoof of today expressing their opinion on the antiquated views of those who cling to an outmoded art form.

    Sounds more like what "Java Man" would utter as he struggled to learn a comprehensible language.

    I put a clip on youtube demonstrating the multiple file opening capabilities of the iMac. Got a comment saying 'dude, you have mad file opening and expose-triggering skillz!' Not as bad as many I have seen.

    Actually, I do teach teenagers, hence the wink emoticon at the end of the sentence... dude.

    You are of course right film is a shrinking market but when the mail order people do stock ferricyanide and can deliver from stock next day anything I have ever wanted they will get my money. For me it is a 40 mile round trip and parking to pay to my nearest J's so the postage is not an issue when you take the time and costs into account.
    I support those who have supported me and didnot try to sell me a digi phone when I wanted a roll of HP5+.

    Regards Paul.

    My favorite is "Film roolz, digtal sux" but these days I may be quoting the Antichrist.

    No film is not dead. It may become a smaller market in some places but I'll be a lot older then, and by that time there may come a digital camera I actually like.

    At the drugstore chain I work at, at least in my store, we stock several types of Kodak and Fuji APS films, as well as 1 type of Kodak 110 film (not that I've seen anybody buy it) and we even have some Kodachrome 64 in stock! Of course, we also have a few brand new betamax tapes...

    I don't buy the cheapest film I can find online anymore and just buy it in my favourite shop in Dublin. I think the bargain hunters like myself may have contributed to this problem of high-street not stocking film.

    I bought 4 dozen rolls of 120, some paper, chemicals and toner before Christms and the guy behind me said I was nuts for not buying online from the jersey islands. I turned to him and said I'd rather the shop stayed f***ing open than save a few quid and asked him who stocked 5L of Fixer in Jersey? He looked at me blankly for a few seconds and said, you're bloody right :rolleyes:

    Ilford have a neat idea on their website and I'd love to see it rolled out to include Ireland. You can order on their site and the sale is sent through the distributor/shop. Trust them to come up with something like that. Ingenious.
