I've heard some weird stories before, but that one takes the cake. I'm still laughing over that one.

Alas, poor Field, I knew him well.

The interesting thing is that Ross (not willing to give him the additional attention that comes with other than a first name) has probably seen an uptick in his traffic as a result and is feeling so very much the augmented self-esteem.

And this is the future of photography... Why did that Field guy have to die, he could sure help out these Instagramers!

I’ll be chuckling about this one for a couple of days.

I'm not sure, I've heard some pretty stupid things in my life as a computer tech.

Um, yes. Satire.

This is the part that made ROLF: "I taped down the dial so that won’t happen again."

As much as I want to believe it’s a satire piece, I deal with people every day, and something like this wouldn’t surprise me.

I agree. Like I said, I've heard some weird stores or had some weird questions when I used to fix peoples computers. I would believe this to be true in the photography world, too.

I want as much of the image to be out of focus, but the edges better be razor sharp.

There's a narrow range where I find stupidity to be funny.
Everything in that story, except the above quote which is actually not stupid, is way beyond that limit, so I cannot laugh with the rest of you, just roll my eyes all the way to the back of my head.


P.S.: Don't you (also) have to know your tools to be considered an artist? Isn't that what makes a difference between being just curious (maybe even talented) or being an artist?
