    A geek-type from San Diego, California (user albada)

    Hi All,

    I've been a member for several years, but only recently became active in APUG.org. I even subscribed, which I encourage you to do to support this site.

    I collect, repair, and shoot with mechanical cameras that don't use batteries (no electronics). Mostly 35mm.
    Being an engineer at heart, I also modify cameras. For example, I figured out a modification to the Olympus Trip 35 and Pens that gives you manual control over their two shutter speeds. You turn the camera upside-down to get its high speed, using gravity to move a lever deep within the camera.
    I'm currently learning about developers, and my project now is to create versions of XTOL/Mytol and DS-10 that last for years (in concentrate form) and are convenient for one-shot usage.

    My day-job is computer programming (hence the "geek-type"), and I even have some patents in digital imaging/photography -- shame on me!
    But I enjoy film and chemistry with my classic cameras.

    Mark - hello and welcome to APUG from western Massachusetts. I wander to the San Diego area (Encinitas) once in a while... beautiful area.

    Nice to see another Diegueno pop up. I checked and you don't seem to work with me...wait, are you sure you're allowed to be a software geek in SD and not work at Qualcomm? :-)

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    From another IT geek type to another, welcome! Analog all the way (I guess except for work though, abacuses were replaced by bus intel tools...) Andy
