    Scanners and inkjet printers and pictures as big as we dare put inline in posts. An exclusive Buy/sell area with purchase/sale feedback.

    They are a good thing. But there are places, like here, to ask those questions. It's good to have a large format specific forum too. I enjoy both LFPF and APUG.

    Newcomers to film ARE a good thing, just like the search window on the top right of this page. Finding an answer takes less time (and you'll likely learn more) than posting a new thread. Less bullshit threads also makes it easier for anyone who uses the search function to find the info they need.

    No big deal. I don't access the web whatsoever on the weekends. I'll be toting my 8x10 and big Ries tripod tommorow, not pulvering other folk
    with it virtually. Fortunately, the weather has cooled enough and the fire hazard has subsided, so that our big regional parks will be pleasant, and I won't have to worry about the Fed closure of parkland over on the coast, where I go in hot weather. But I must confess that I'll be
    printing some 6x9 negs Sunday afternoon, but might slip in a 4x5 or 8x10 shot too if there is enough time (probably not).

    A drive failure taking down a site? Wtf... Are they doing hosting on a freaking Commodore 64? In this day and age that is lame.

    The entire Large Format Photography site, including moderation and hosting, is a volunteer operation. Anyone reading or posting there is a guest of those funding/running it. Users obtain value an infinite number of times greater than what they pay for it, which is nothing.

    Calling it lame is rude and inconsiderate. This has happened before and the volunteers purchased replacement hardware, then recovered virtually all of what was in the database. I think we can look forward to a similar outcome this time. I'd call that extraordinarily wonderful. Politeness and gratitude, especially to Brian Reid


    who provides the server, are in order, not criticism.

    It is a lame cheap shot. I enjoy the site very much and would gladly contribute some money if asked, or if the chance were even available, just as I do here on APUG.

    Well said Sal.
