    I’d swear that I’ve stumbled into the Mother Of All Hair Splitting forums. That’s MOAHS for all of you acrymonious types out there.

    Going back for a moment to the “glitche” discussion,...the correct spelling is giclée. It’s pronounced “gee-clay” and it’s an upscaled term for inkjet print. It means “to spray water”(as in between the teeth). I guess “inkjet” just didn’t sound refined enough for all of the self appointed Grand Poobahs in the ART WORLD.

    Them's digitals gone and got themselve's Bonafied!!! (fade in the dualing banjoes theme song from Deliverance; cut to a scene where we see an inbred looking brute, with a shiny new digital Rebel around his neck. Kneeling in front of him, looking rather distraught, is some poor schmuck pathetically clutching his fully manual,...and heavy "view camera". We hear the goon behind him say "squeal like a piggy!...fade to black.

    But I digress.

    Then he says, "That's a mighty fine camera you got there boy." or words to that effect.

    Hah! You read my mind. In a way, it is refreshing to see a discussion so enmeshed in minutia. Makes me feel better about some of my errant ramblings, where I've chosen some really obscure idea to bring to the light.
    Carpe erratum!!

    Now Ed, it is it minutia or minutiae? I can't seem to remember if we were discussing more than one thing....


    And have you ever tried to split a hair? It is much harder than it sounds.

    I replied to a single subject: *A* forum enmeshed ... therefore singular - and "minutia".

    Kind of redundantly repetitive, no?

    So what does a hair splitting sound like? I would have thought it soft and whispery, but you say it is a hard sound, which I would have thought went with baldness, so now I am intrigued.

    Actually, I've seen a demonstration of hair splitting accomplished with a Wilkinson Sword blade from a safety razor (their British you know) :Zzz:

    Well, I don't know about all that. But on the ranch I've seen a lot of hare
    splitting - a whole different animal I suppose... :whistle:
