Hi Ralph, I know you did, when you moved. One of the first things that occurred to me was that it will be very interesting to hear your opinions in a few years. I'm still in the camp that thinks there's nothing quite like holding that silver print in your hand, but I suspect you'll take the other ways of printing as far as they can go, and then your opinions and experience will be fascinating to hear.
Holding a silver print or a digital print does not make a difference to me; only the result (i.e. the print) matters.
For the Flikr group, if they can't perceive the irony of situation, I would run away, life is too short to mess with analog ayatollahs.
