    I get the feeling you're referring a to a previous thread that I missed.
    It means that the original poster is afraid and seeking reassurance of the continuity of the future of film and processing and the continuing interest of upcoming generations in it.

    You can tell which designation I would use from one of my links below. I expect you use the other one though.

    Well, after a few days hiatus from a computer (in order to go to Connecticut to visit my 90 year old father for Fathers' Day) I must say without equivocation that I am rather impressed with the (almost) obsession with film.

    And I am also pleased with the number of people at, or younger than, that critical age of 30-35. There really is something about analog that keeps one's interest. I consider it to be an undefined intimacy and understandability. Even though I do commit sacrilege by stating the treachery that, in theory, digital is superior in concept, I also state, just as vehemently, that the utter simplicity of the chemical process and the state of art of film technology today almost forces one, an objective, fair one, to venture into analog.

    We will see as the years pass what actually happens, but I do believe that in my lifetime I will never be without materials to process film. And I do hope to reach 100 with ease. - David Lyga

    I turned 56 a couple of days ago.

    I've been shooting film since I was 8 (and in darkrooms since I was 11).

    Photography helps keep me young at heart!

    I was 18 when I got my first camera, a film camera. I don't think the word "digital" had even been invented back then! Many, many film cameras followed in the next 30+ years. Now 51 and absolutely no sign of the flame waning.

    Here's an interesting Information Tech. history factoid for you... The Zuse Z3 was built in 1941. It was an electro-mechanical computer whose programs were stored in computer-readable form on... are you ready for this? 35mm film.

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.

    I'm 42. Got into photography around 11 or 12. Came back to film after a 10-year hiatus with numeric photography. I'm loving the dark side!
