Something about this reply has been slightly displaced so that it appears from a different position than its original object, as if history were viewed along two different lines of sight.

Or something.

Now we are engaged in a great mockery, testng whether that thread, or any thread so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.
We are met in a great thread of that mockery. We have come to dedicate a portion of this thread (well, just post #1), as a final resting place for those who here gave their opinion that Pentax shot itself in the foot. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this thread. The brave men and women, living and dead, who opined here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the loyal Pentaxians, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us -- that from these honored Pentaxians we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve that these loyal members shall not have posted in vain -- that this forum, under Adam, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that forum of the Pentaxians, by the Pentaxians, for the Pentaxians, shall not perish from the internet.

There is no honor in dying for your camera brand. Honor comes from making the other sob die for his camera brand.

I know the SV has to stay in, but you do have some WR gear, right?
Only the K10D body. My person is also somewhat prone to wetting.

All the world is divided into K3 parts

Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres, quarum unam incolunt Nikonae, aliam Canonani, tertiam qui ipsorum lingua Asahiae, nostra Pentaxianae appellantur.

I want to write a witty reply but am so full of cheese fondue (really) that I am sleepy.

Jim, Great job with the address.

Well sure, but you're up there in rainland where WR matters. I know the SV has to stay in, but you do have some WR gear, right?
Dang good thing to have for today's Seahawks game in Seattle... Lots and lots of both wind and rain! But no cheese sandwiches, at least not on the telly

Temp = 60, eh? (or 63!)
It is 35.5 here, as I type - forecast to grow incrementally to 44 by Friday.
Not a drop of rain in sight.
Oh, and we measure in C rather than F.
I'd rather your 60 than my 44 - by a long shot.
