It's Friday the 13th;
You must be using a French calendar.

Today is August 29, 2014.

And it is Racer's birthday.

So why didn't anyone wish me a happy birthday?

And where the Hell is my cake?

I already have a clown.

Mine too! And I had 55 people on FB wish my a happy birthday, but no one IRL.

Sucked for me today too. I got confirmation that I have celiac disease and that i have to have surgery to repair the hernia surgery I had in 2005. The mesh has somehow come away from where it is supposed to be.

Happy birthday Racer & Voice.
(Although it is actually 30th August on this side of the world. - Some missed the #10000, you two virtually missed your birthdays!)

That news does suck.

I hope they are able to keep the celiac under control.

Hmpf, why does the hociR release new cameras all the time? After the K-S1 was announced all the whiners have broken out of the rumours section and are now polluting the entire forum.

This is a much nicer place when the flagellants mostly stay in their cordoned-off sub-forum waiting in vain for their wild delusions to materialise. Sure, I can still hear the whipping and the wailing from time to time, but now...

Yep. I think he forgot to read what this topic is about, or maybe he was possessed by the Spirit of Hocir and Basement Cat!

Should be able to. It is pretty much a diet and making sure to read the labels thing.

Just wait and see what will happen with the next announcements! I'm beginning to think some photographers forgot why they bought a camera and lenses in the first place.

You guys (and gals) are just insanely jealous ... it's a national time warp thingy.

And happy belated "bon anniversaire" to Racer & V.O.R. ... hope that you're better soon, V.O.R.

Jeez - you'd think the K-3 would be enough to satisfy just about anyone's lust for negativity. The evil hociR had a wicked sense of humor though. After the KF-U2 maybe they'll do a KS-MA. Then a Q-SnRT

The Film SLR Forum and this thread are just about the only safe places on PF right about now.

Ah, maybe that's where the Ethiopians got their extra month from? The month of ጳጐሜን ain't more than 5 days, but it is still a month!

The Ethiopians enjoy being a bit eccentric even more than the French do, I think. Today is the 25th day of ነሐሴ 2006. Their clock is 6 hours offset from "European time", and they enjoy their own alphabet (which isn't truly an alphabet but rather an alphasyllabary ).

And that should be plenty of reason not to buy a ሆሲረ K-3!

(I have borrowed from the Ge'ez script here - not really used any more outside of the churches. In Amharic the hociR would be written as the ሖሲረ, I think, rather than the Ge'ez "ሆሲረ" mentioned above.)

P.S. My apologies to all users of said scripts. My knowledge of this is rather slim - I did start reading "Amharic for foreign beginners" once, but didn't get through it all...

We don't buy cameras because they match our outfits.

We buy them because they make great photos!

Right?

WE don't, but fashionable ladies in Japan and China who drop a mint on matching shoes and handbags might. (If that's sexist and racist, my apologies - can I try for a hat trick by bringing age or class into it?)

Pentax already has a camera for US. (I speak, of course, of the K-5IIs, as no one in their right mind would buy a K-3. )
