But the English have some interesting words not normally used in Australia.


"'oovering" means walking around the tables at a large dinner collecting partly drunk bottles of wine to take back to one's own friends at one's own table.


Guess where I learned that: Philadelphia, PA, in a dinner in the old big train station. Outside has lots of beggars - even a guard of honour of them at the entrance to Maccas. And Chinatown there looks scary to come out of those restaurants after it is dark.

I thought 'oovering meant walking around on carpeted floors pushing a suction device to collect dust and detritus.

Can I just say that the K-S1 makes me kinda grumpy? It's not like it's a terrible camera, just that it's marketed towards people who shouldn't be buying DSLRs. \endrant

The hociR's plan for world domination is that EVERYONE must buy DSLRs. At least 2 each.

You are failing to get with the plan. The hociR will be coming for you.

It seems like a decent camera, I just can't get past the fact that it looks like a bridge camera.

If that means higher revenues and profits and thus more money for the development of proper equipment and features (like a decent AF.C, godammit) for people who 'should buy DSLRs', then so what?

True, but last I heard the K-S1 wasn't selling well, so no help there. Hopefully the rumored K-50 replacement will be more popular.

Based on the 2014 CIPA numbers, nothing is selling very well.

Let's hope that hociR really does have a plan, or at least a Plan B.

This is getting way too serious around here. Time to go away until it gets back off-track again.

Yeah, whatever happened to the luminescent reindeer?

Or did you intend to head back into poo and inedible food?

Yeah, how did we stray on topic? It was Jean with his KS-1 Valentine's Day post, wasn't it? Anyone wants to suggest a proper punishment for him?

Maybe the OP will come back.... his second coming is much anticipated in some quarters.
