I took a several day break from PF and returned to find that the freshest thread on the sight has spiraled into the black hole of knock-knock jokes and weak beer. I am dismayed...the hociR has triumphed.

And me too. I left home on the morning of 2/1 to go to Sydney and got back last night. It was a long drive. Great Ocean road to Melbourne, to Glenrowan, to Canberra, to Jenolan Caves via the back road from Goulburn, to Sydney, where we stayed a few days and then drove home in one day via Wagga, Narrandera, Jerilderie, Barham, Warracknabeal, Dimboola, Nhill, Bordertown, Tailem Bend - all that was a long way.

Sorry for the confusion. My collection is somewhat smaller than 2,000. I was referring to the year 2000 Barossa Shiraz. At any given time I don't store more than about 10 cases.


Which Barossa shiraz? I know it was 2000 but the Barossa is a big place, takes half hour to drive past on the bypass road.

Absolutely!
Unless, this is what you mean by "dark, heavy and hoppy"? (Sorry - image stolen off the web)


What's that, you found one that could still hop. On my trip I saw plenty that were lying on their sides, half dried out and full of flies. Not something to park near!

Yep. We don't suffer trolls gladly. (or in perpetuity)

The concept never looks identical to the production model.

hociR has gladly surrendered the back of that camera, in exchange for indelible watermark of hociR at every image that camera takes!

<evil laugh> Hahahaha!

But then as so many things are and will be, when the HociR toys with and plays with our minds

My take on how the release product will appear. With thanks to TechIsCool for the original image

I see that you guys are showing off one of the many great planes made by my co-workers at the factory in Renton, Washington.

Nice!

I just had a really splendid grilled cheese sandwich. Just figured I'd share, since we seem to be talking about cheese now.

To get back on topic here, this whole business about the hociR on the rear LCD is a diversionary ruse. The real reason to not buy a K-3 is because the camera is poorly made, unreliable, unpredictable, and fatally flawed by design and that there are multiple reviews on the web relating numerous problems. I know it is true because I read it here on the Pentax Forums.
