    LOL! I love it!

    OK, Luddites, I'm gonna let you in on a little secret.
    I ordered a few rolls of Ektar 100 this week for the Fabulous EOS-1V.
    I like antiques .... what can I say?

    The new Intel motherboard for their i7 chip doesn't even have IDE
    connectors or a floppy disk controller. Why? Because Intel prefers
    to look forward, not backwards.

    Let's see how long your Syquest removable drives will last in a readable state.
    Or your home-made cds, for that matter. Or even how long you'll be able to use
    the current memory in your pc.

    All of them much younger than the onset of digital photography, but already gone.

    There is a small difference between the last steam car 100 years ago and the
    planned obsolescence of all things digital more than 18 months old, but don't
    let reality strike you as a surprise...

    BioDeisel is so easy to make that you can make it at home, how hard can it
    to do it commercially?

  5. One day it will. Equilibrium will occur, although life on earth might be
    close to extinction then.

    The Asus P6T board has many of the old features the Intel board leaves
    off if compatibility is an issue. The Intel doesn't even have a plug
    for a PS/2 mouse, for example.

    One issue I've had with my current system is that I use a Bluetooth
    wireless keyboard. The Bluetooth receiver uses a USB port. However,
    if I'm having probs and need to adjust something in the BIOS I can't
    use the normal function keys to make the computer go into Setup mode
    at boot-up. This is because it doesn't recognize the USB ports until
    it boots up, but by then it's too late. So I keep an old wired
    keyboard hooked up just for that scenario.

    I wonder if the new systems will have such problems?

    My next system will have the i7 chip and a very fast video card. That
    much I know.

  8. Not only does Target have FILM, they even still have the little
    batteries for my Canon film cameras!! (They are in the electronics
    department, not the battery display!)Walmart has film, too. It is too
    bad that film is disappearing, too. What happens when the IslamoNazis
    hit us with a bomb that releases an electromagnetic pulse that WRECKS
    electronics? Won't our digital frames and cameras and cell phones and
    memory sticks and computers malfunction? We have hundreds of photos at
    home from film cameras (mostly 35 mm), but have pretty much gone to
    digital, and I wonder about it. What a pain in the neck and expense it
    is, BTW, to PRINT photos off the computer or camera, and there is some
    debate about how they will LAST,we have photos that date back almost a
    century that are still OK.
    This is...PROGRESS??
