    So could Crowder, Animal John, Richard Crowley, Tony P. etc. get into a long
    thread arguing about it with Nappy?

    ;-)

    Are you sure it was the Sun? Which version ? I never liked the Sun. Never
    got it to work correctly for me. Every Time I stared at it I would go blind
    for a while.

    But you shouldn't use the Sun, it's highly compressed. No
    true videographer would use such a common light source,
    anyway. It varies in intensity throughout the day, is subject to
    interference (clouds, fog, passing objects, ect...), and has no
    effective controls available to the user. No, the only lighting
    that anyone should use is what the "Pros" use, Klieglights.

    The Sun is not a proper tool for any but you lowly amateur,
    consumer video types, not us Artiste.

    LOL;

    Are you sure that's what caused the blindness? 'Cause I've heard that if
    you....um, nevermind...

    a hater?! Huh? This just confirms everything that I ever thought
    about saying about what you might say about me!

  7. How many forum members does it takes to change the sun?

    1 to change the sun and to post that the sun has been changed

    14 to share similar experiences of changing the sun and how the sun could
    have been changed differently

    7 to caution about the dangers of changing the sun

    1 to move it to the Lighting section

    2 to argue then move it to the Astronomy section

    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing the sun

    5 to flame the spell checkers

    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

    6 to argue over whether it's "sun" or "Sun" .. another 6 to condemn those 6
    as stupid

    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "sol"

    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "sun" is
    perfectly correct

    19 to post that this forum is not about the sun and to please take this
    discussion to a sun forum

    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use the sun and
    therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

    best sun, what brand of sun work best for this technique and what brands
    are faulty

    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the
    corrected URL's

    3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this
    group which makes the sun relevant to this group

    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all
    headers and signatures, and add "Me too"

    5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot
    handle the sun controversy

    4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

    13 to say "do a Google search on the sun before posting questions about the
    sun"

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start
    it all over again.

    Versions 1-5 of the Sun where OK with steady improvement.

    Version 6 was a real dog. To buggy. It rained like hell from April
    through Sept. Worst summer ever. I'll never recommend version 7.

    Version 7 was fantastic. They worked out all the bugs and added the
    new "Instant Tan" feature.

    Version 8 was OK, but some users ran into difficulty if they have AMD
    processors.

    version 9.0 was terrible. Totally buggy. We had an eclipse every other
    day. Fortunately the 9.2 service pack was just released. No more
    Eclipses, runs great on AMD and all is hood in the Universe!

    Rumour has it that Sun version 10 will be released next spring. In
    keeping with current marketing trends it will be renamed iSun and come
    in your choice of designer sunshine colors.

    Happy Holidays and best wishes to all! We've become a spirited group,
    but with these differences of opinions come a wide range of experience
    that make the overall inforamtion available better.
