3....2....1... go


I slept in this morning, also trying to think of another adventure to go on today. So many places to go in Northern California.

Building my own PCs? Not any more. Used to do that in the past, but I'm getting lazy. Work with servers all day, want to spend my free time on other things!
I build my own desktop workstations, but bought my laptop from Lenovo. After almost a year with that unit, I am thinking that I maybe should have built it too.

They're pretty awful. . . . . . . even though I had worked all night, so I was running on no sleep. And my kids loved it. That's the best part. They had a blast.
Sounds like your kids have a warped sense of humor!

A tree?

I mean, where else would you try to fit a DSLR? Even in a medical context.

So. Up a tree.

Without a paddle.

Huh?.
Huh?

I thought that it was up the crease creek without a paddle ... or maybe without a "hociR" branded K-3 ... J
I think we're narrowing it down a bit . . . . .

QuoteOriginally posted by savoche Quote
Right. Up a creek, gnawing off the paddle you're sitting on. Which might get stuck up the crease.

And that's why you'll need hociR branded medical equipment.

Which the K-3 is not, so no reason to buy one.
Some doctors do use Pentax brand medical imaging gear.

Ummmm, yeah, okay, we'll go with that.
Aw, you're no fun!

QuoteOriginally posted by savoche Quote
Umm, I think I need some rest. I just saw this thread titled "Looking for a second body for Weddings", and my first thought was "good thing it wasn't for a funeral".
Yikes!

QuoteOriginally posted by savoche Quote
I'm pretty sure hociR has corrupted my mind...
And that's a bad thing?

QuoteOriginally posted by savoche Quote
And I probably should stay away from this thread!
We'd be lonely without you! Don't go.

You, too ... and me, three ...
So we're counting now?


Tell me, how many of you here are over 50 and have had the joy of hociR 5 feet (1.5 meters for those who use the metric sysytem) in a place where hociR should not be?

One of Rupert's squirrels left a note under my garbage can with this rumor: Ricoh is going to buy the Pentax medical imaging division, put out a new dslr with dual purpose lenses for regular photography or colonoscopy work. One camera two functions, could be a winner!!

I'll stay south of 50 for a while yet, and won't let hociR anywhere near my "places"!

How come they call the central part of California "Northern"?

Isn't Redding in the Northern part of the state? Or did the secessionists succeed?

I get the same feeling every time I fire up one of my laptops.

Well i guess if you cut the state in half this would be the northern part? I dont know I have only been here since October and everyone calls it NorCal so I just fell in line.

They're being raised (as best I can) by me. Poor things. I told them I would help them pay for either college or therapy.

Who can ask for more than that?

I mean, they can't exactly have a K-3!

Come to think of it, I should probably have opted for therapy rather than university

Because anything south of San Jose is "the L.A. area".

None of them are bad, Amy. The first one is really quite interesting.

I thought it was because anything south of San Jose and north of LA is in the "Fly-over Zone" and is a mythical land found only in ancient legends or in agricultural reports.
