    can i get that stuff at my local pharmacy ?
    i dont trust the mail
    especially with a pyromaniac, do they come cheap ?

    ===

    i just got a pm AND an email from the same person

    looks like i have hope
    i can get my desired effect ( affect? ) using amporphic lens cells mounted
    tangentially and inverted spinning counterclockwise.
    made with melted fiestaware mixed with tiffany
    glass heated with a centrifugal laser assembly
    and then mapped and created through a 3d printer

    i don't know where to get this stuff,
    i can't use a 3d printers, with my atari computer i currently use on my dialup
    can't download "plans" for my lens design either

    im getting kind of depressed all this talk of meerkats and gekos ...
    maybe i should call gilbert godfried, seeing he sells insurance too
    and he owes me a huge favor. he usually talks me off of the ledge
    years ago and helped me find my current iron lung ( its his sideline )

    i need a bigger tripod i think

    If your gecko gets confused with comparing the market and comparing the gecko, then I think it's time to stop drinking the rodinal and developing in coffee, or the other way around. Or substitute the whole lot for booze. Does Tequila work as Blix in a 3-bath E6?

    Our geckos sell tires. Insurance, don't be silly.
    Ours do. But they're not really ours, in that they speak with British accents. So they emigrated here, or maybe came on work visas. I say 'they', because there's been at least three. They only live so long, you know.
    The first was veddy British, with an upper-crust accent and he drove an old Jaguar- an XK 120 or 140, as I recall. He was not confused- he was trying to end the confusion! He was complaining about getting calls for GEICO (you can see where the confusion originated, I'm sure).
    The one now has a Cockney accent. He's a spokes- uhh, gecko for the company, and if he's getting calls for them, he's not complaining...
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    what kind of tripod should i get ??
    it has to have something like a shelf
    pan and rotating axial head, quick release mounts
    and sturdy enough to hold a de golden busch 12x20 camera
    and lens . its a 1200mm lens.

    currently i use 4 evenly spaced slik tripods with a sheet of plywood
    but since the house fell on me and i have to get my butler jeeves to do everything
    remotely he just suggeseted i get a new tripod / tripods so when my camera falls on him again
    he won't get hurt, again. between his workmans compl claims against me and my camera hobby
    i wont hav much money soon, and i will have to call gilbert again to trade in my nice iron lung
    for a wooden barrel on a big unicolor drum roller

    im thinking of mounting the lens on my speed graphic so jeeves can do hand held work
    but the lens board isn't big enough for the back lense and my bellows/accordion thingy
    isn't long enough how do i get a longer bellows do they sell big lens cone?
    can i make it out of paper mache?
    maybe if i shoot a smaller format it will look more like minynox

    jeeves scans everyting for me not sure what he uses
    maybe a howlertech? it takes all day for one scan since
    he always scans at 96000 dpi TIFF FILES
    itold him i only print stuff for the webforums
    and the atari can't handle all those dots
    but he insists that i have to scan big so the 72dpi image looks good

    Well right there is your grain problem.Tell jeeves to scan at 7200dpi with a good fistful of gravel shoved into the howlertech, it will take even longer, but you get very defined grain. It was probably a mistake to substute tofurkey for baloney, if you really need a worse acting developer ham would be the meat to use. As for "glow" you might try scraping the radium from some old alarm clocks, put it in the start bath 100:25:3:47 use distilled water filtered through a goose to bring up the eggstra punch.

    You are so wrong winterclock.

    If you want grain you must use wheat or oats or other "grains".

    If you want to put rocks in your photos you have to join "f64".
