    Yes, I'm capable of thoughts. But I thought that you might want to think up
    a few of your own thoughts after you've had a chance to read, think, and
    then tell me what you thought about the article.

    Seriously, I posted an informational link about another company having
    trouble with the old analog stuff. I didn't think I needed to give a second
    thought, and never thought you might not be able to think up your own
    thoughts so you'd need to hear my thoughts about what I think.

    What do you think? Is that the reply you thought you'd get?

  5. In message Kinon O'Cann sprach forth
    the following:
    You gave no indication what the article was about. Nail in the coffin of
    what? Communism? The Iraq war? Britney Spears' career?

  6. ? Spears' career?

    Strange, I quite easily knew exactly what he was referring to the moment I
    read it. And there is apparently a *lot* more to the story that is totally
    unrelated to the digital thing.

    Fact is, although he also serviced 35mm users John at J&C was renown for
    catering to the high-end, large and ultra-large (11x14 and up) analog crowd.
    These are the truest hard-core film photographers. My 4x5 is considered by
    them to be a "miniature" format.

    There is an ocean of traditional photographers over on APUG right now who
    are just sick over this. But they also realize it has nothing to do with
    the onslaught of those little digital point-and-shoot thingies from
    Wal-Mart. J&C was running with the big dogs.

    It seems that so nasty legal headaches for JandC has brought another
    "analog supply" house down. It is a shame that this happens and not
    knowing all that went on, I can't comment on what happened.
    They did supply photographers with many of the supplies that used to
    be able to be bought from any supply house. Also being able to supply
    those tradionalist photographers who worked in nothing but extra large
    format. Contact printing 11x14 or larger. Neat. Just hate to have
    lugged the equipment to location far and away. But then that is what
    HighSchool photography students are for.hehe
    I hope the folks from JandC will be able to pick up the pieces and
    start again. There aren't that many suppling "analog large format"
    material.

    Just my two cents.

    Getting even isn't good enough.


    Doing better does.

    Well, as interesting as it is to follow the career of burned out fugitives
    from trailer parks who still can't sing, I posted an article about a
    photo-related topic. However, your point is taken. In the future, I'll
    include a short description about the article so you can be reasonably
    certain that I'm not some scumbag spammer trying to direct you to some porn
    for cash site.

    Good luck with the "business"...

    ;-)
