Sheesh - you guys need to drink more beer!
In the spirit that I'm going to assume you meant that as a joke, I won't say what I'm really thinking. Drinking More beer might be an option IF I drank it to begin with, I don't.

That would probably make the problem worse in my case. I think the only thing that would work would be doing some exercises to build up the glutes.

Nice! Which model MBP?

I wish I could've gotten an i5/i7 (my MBP is one month old), but considering Apple gave me a free new 17" MBP at that time to replace my Late '08 15" refurb that kept having problems, I'm not going to complain!

Just placed an order with B&H (through the Pentax Forums link, of course) for some odds and ends:

And now that it's finally stopped raining, I can finally go use my new DA 55-300mm!

I hear ya. It's tough, financially, staying with Macs, but I must! I got pretty lucky with the last one I bought though. I bought it on the MacRumors marketplace last Sept. Some guy was selling a two-week-old 2.66GHz 15" MBP refurb WITH a $300 128GB SSD for $1,300. I bought it and sold my classic 2.2GHZ 15" MBP for $900. So I really got that nice upgrade for $100 plus the cost of the SSD. And like I said, Apple replaced it with the 17".

My brother recently bought the base 15". He was upgrading from an old PowerBook. These unibodies really are sweet machines. Congrats on the purchase and enjoy!

My latest is a 1933 Zeiss Ikon Ikomat 520. The photo is with my latest Pentax lens, the Macro-Takumar 50/4 preset.
That's a very nice picture of a nice old camera. That lens is good, and it takes a good photographer to use a good lens.

Jeff - course it's a joke - to expand your waistline! Sorry if you though otherwise. Fell free to call in for a whisky, or tea, or juice any time.

no. no lovely brass, but the metal does show through. a dull grey, but I figure that once it is significantly weathered it will look quite good. like a camera should look if I do say so.

I've got that same Pentax cleaning cloth, and I must say, it is by far the best one I have ever used. I had never tried one like it before, and I only bought it because it was Pentax brand and I like to support them in any way possible, but it really is great.
