Probably tasty but makes me think of the 'Hocir effect'. Is that what will become of civilisation should the Hocir escape Tokyo?

Nice table. I like natural wood finishes.

Oh, and the ribs look great too!

If you buy a used one are you still selling your soul to hociR? Or is the other guys soul good enough?

Once you submit to the will of the hociR you must buy or accept gifts of a bunch of old Pentax film cameras, send them to Eric, use them and pledge to be their steward unto eternity. Preferably black ones. It restoreth the soul.

(post K-3 + 2nd KX, MX, MX (silver), SP, ES, ESII, SP-F)

If the cameras don't do the trick this should work.

Re some of the above, the only really important thing is that quality and competitively specced K mount cameras are continued to be produced under a brand name that buyers easily recognise and is trusted and, just as importantly knows how to market them. We like PENTAX now, even allowing for its apalling marketing in the past. RICOH may be better longer term bet (I do not know) but firstly they will have make a better Bridge camera for the market as the reviews for the latest offering are so far muted and secondly they will have to resolve the mirror flutter issue in the K3, as well as giving more options on the choice of which card slot to use.

Now can we please get back to a cheese sandwiches / toasties / burgers etc.! Its 2:53 pm here in lovely Ecosse and I have a light meal to start thinking about for guests expected later this afternoon.....ideas please.

P.S. Aren't we doing well in the Commonwealth games, as are all the other home countries, in Glasgow!!!!!

Pickled herring in sour cream as an appetizer, with lutefisk tacos, or lutefisk lefse wraps for the main course. Bacon wrapped brownies for dessert. Maybe a nice Mogen David 20/20 or some Boone's Farm Apple for any oenophiles in the group.

The hociR will come for it later. Read the fine print.

While it is unclear whether there is an issue with current production, word on the street is that if you have a crazy mirror K-3, all you have to do is to send it in for warranty service. I would take that as face value indication that the problem has been characterized and the issue has been addressed in production and that the issue is somewhat less relevant than the almost certain destruction of Tokyo.

(...of course, my thinking has been compromised by the hociR and nothing I say or write should be seriously considered...)
