Hi everyone, just joining the forum!
Hi Cucho!

Welcome aboard!

By the way, I am watching the ongoing saga about the trapped miners in your country ... hope all will be well over the next few hours.

Cheers.

Congrats to the people who made it happen!

YEP!

We ARE all watching it live! I haven't gone to sleep yet, and I've been watching it all night.

This is one of the benefits of unemployment.

WELCOME!!!!

I watched #2 hug everyone and hand out rocks from the mine. Very nice.

You're welcome Cucho!

As you can see from this thread, a lot of people have been watching this, live!

I would estimate that billions of people are actually watching the rescue!

Best to you!

The 33 are out! Plus 3 of the rescuers!

Less than an hour to go for the final 3 rescuers, and the magic is complete!!!

Well folks!

At this time: 23:20 Eastern time, the last rescuer is being lifted out!
There were 6 of them, and I just saw this last fellow embarking into the "capsule" ... he should be out in about 10-12 minutes.
Exciting time!
This will be the end of the saga, much to the relief of those who were deeply involved all through the process.

My sincere congratulations to the people of Chile and to the "non-Chileans" (no pun intended) who helped in every which way possible.

Let this be a lesson of unity for the world to learn.

Cheers to all and have a good night/evening/day!

It's a really nice place to live JP, actually it has just receive an award on a UK magazine for that xD you can see some pictures of Viña del Mar's places and sunsets on my flickr:

Viña Del Mar - a set on Flickr
Atardeceres - a set on Flickr

I'm not a great photographer but you can still have an idea xD

I'm thinking about upgrading my new k-x for a k7 or k20d camera... I see you are a proud owner of both xD can you say it's a good option? I mean... to trade the great high ISO performance and newest technology for a better body and other features?
