    If they haven't got three dots......... then they're not elipsiseseseses.

    There's no craziness there. My mother is great at word and number puzzles, crosswords, Scrabble, etc. and even worked out the Rubik's cube when it first came out in a matter of hours.

    I could probably do all of these things if I wanted to... I just can't see the point!

    I've dropped my meter in a mtn creek a couple of times on long backpacking trips, had to estimate
    the exposure for both b&w and color trans and got perfect exposures. But that's only because I've
    metered analogous lighting thousands of times and my memory worked for once. Since I work primarily with 8x10 film the thought of bypassing a meter would otherwise amount to insanity. Film
    that size isn't for machine-gunners.

    Nor is 35mm film.

    Although it (35mm) was used in gun cameras...

    E von Hoegh: I will not support your hunting efforts (am a vegetarian) but I meant to be using 35mm film. Obviously, using large format for this is rather obscene. - David Lyga
