Ditto what Jay and Miserere said: where are the photos?! I was curious at your mention of seeing the floaters in your eye. The way you write this implies that they're common; I'd always thought they were pretty rare. I have a prominent one which I can always see, and have had it for 25 years or more, but I've never met anyone else who's even heard of floaters.

As soon as they make a sensor module with a four-thirds lens mount on it, this system is going to kick butt.
Mike, I didn't answer the poll because the answer for me depends on whether I'm buying a compact or an SLR, and the question didn't specify this. FWIW, my answers would have been 400 and 3200, respectively.

What's more annoying than reading something that displays the distinct lack of basic writing skills of the author? When the author is the CEO of the company you work for, and he makes about 20 times your salary. That just isn't fair. (I do realize how irrational the previous statement is. But still.)

Your description of the New Yankee Workshop cracked me up, Mike. Spot on. I am one of those guys with the cramped, messy workshop in which I stand for several lonely minutes at least once a week wondering how I can make room for a table saw and all the rest. I recently counted all the power tools Norm used during one episode - it was 17, and only 2 or 3 of them were the portable kind we mortals are familiar with. And he wasn't even making an especially complex project.

wtf? where do they get off stopping people from buying what people want to buy? i mean, nuclear warheads, okay, but nappies? gross or not, people should be free to make that decision on their own.

I don't know why we stress about achieving stuff. Eventually we'll just be dead and it won't matter if we did or didn't write a novel by 40, sell a work of art, or learn French.
