Hi all from Blackpool, Lancashire, UK
Gonna have to admit now that I didn't even know that the APUG existed and I just randomly found you all by Googling 'Olympus OM forum', which gave me a link to one of your Groups.
What a fantastic site. While I do have an interest in digital imaging, I think it's important that sites like this exist where users and enthusiasts of 'traditional' photography can hang-out without feeling like an anachronism.
Bit about me...my real name is John, I'm partially sighted and have only one arm but I have a masochistic penchant for Olympus OM gear. 'Masochistic' of course because using manual-focus gear is not too easy when provided with one-less than the median-average quantity of arms, but I still enjoy it.
One of my interests is creating double-projector slide-shows, which these days seem to be called diaporamas, but which used to be called 'slide/tape' (though I no longer use tape). Of course that was a minority-interest even when film was still king so I'm probably the only known human being still doing it this way lol. But again, as with the OMs, I enjoy the challenge and the creativity, which importantly is (mostly) away from a darn computer! I already spend most of my days sat in front of a PC, one way or another.
Anyway, thank you for reading through my blurb. I hope I can contribute in a small way to your site.
