Soooo...how do we pronounce Ricoh again? If we are going to whine in the night, we might as well be saying the name right.
For whining purposes, I think it's R, long-I, soft-C, silent-O, not-silent-H, unwritten-I. You know, "Rice hi".

Based on his posting record he will be back approximately April 10th. So in order to make sure all PF members receive the service they deserve we are trying to keep the thread going until the second coming posting.

I do like cheese but my doctor has informed me that unless I stop eating it my risk of heart attack and stroke is increased 10 fold. I asked him if I could just take a pill. He was not amused......
If he knew what you were do here he would not be amused either...

I wonder if he will start a new thread to tell us why he won't buy a Pentax full frame camera with the name Ricoh on it, or if he can just continue on this one?

Sorry about the cheese by the way. Does anyone know why they make Velveeta?

Given that a Mod is a sometimes Poster - you'll never get closure.

Even if it is a really cheezy Thread.

Why can't I stop myself from looking in this thread? I'm starting to suspect there is something seriously wrong with the state of my will power. I'm like moth flying into the fire.

Just do what others do... say you un-subscribe from this non-sense and people will be missing your posts

You're more than welcome to join the fun, Norm.
Just be aware that any effort to to steer the thread back on topic will be quashed.

With all due respect to all, I simply don't understand this aversion to the Ricoh name. Remember, Ricoh saved our beloved Pentax brand. We should be singing their praise, not plotting ways to cover up their name!

Sorry, but I feel this attitude is ridiculous, childish, and ungrateful. So, either support the brand or not.

Sorry folks, I see some grumblings about closing or ignoring this thread. I wouldn't even object to deleting this thread (but that may reek of censorship and people are entitled to their opinions, even if stupid. LOL)

I'll do my part by pledging to discontinue my posts in this thread.

I have often thought that maybe, just maybe someday I could invent something that does nothing at all, but does it really, really well!
If you want to risk your money in the research/design, manufacturing, and marketing, that's great. Just don't put your name on it. Some people won't want to buy it then.
