    We are off tomorrow! Bye everyone!!!!!!!!

    Here's wishing you fair winds and following seas and many beautiful sunsets. You've chosen a great time of year for the Caribbean. I'll be following your cruise with interest. I can honestly say that I've rarely, if ever, felt envy during my life. I'm not sure I can still say that. I think I'm...

    Google email Phising or legit?

    No legitimate company would put a form in the email to update that information. Most won't even put in a link to your online account. They will advise you to go to your account to update your information. If you get an email from an online account that does have a link in it you shouldn't click...

    Which makes you a happier camper?

    I was talking about snow. Ten to one is the usual ratio given for snow. I remember doing experiments when I was a kid. We'd set open coffee cans outdoors during a snowstorm, wait for the snow to stop, measure the depth of the snow and then measure the depth of the water after it melted. Snow to...

    Which makes you a happier camper?

    LOL Pay for a refrigerated truck to haul frozen water that takes up 10 times as much space as liquid water? Sounds like a really profitable idea.

    Which makes you a happier camper?

    People are a lot happier when they don't confuse want with need.

    Which makes you a happier camper?

    I didn't cast a vote here, because all this poll lists are the two extremes. If taken to its logical conclusion Option A leads to anarchy and a dog-eat-dog world. On the other hand, Option B leads to pure communism where everyone is a slave to the greater society. Thankfully, most of humanity...

    Which makes you a happier camper?

    This used to happen to me all the time when I was making longer posts. I got into the habit of copying the message before clicking on submit. At least that way I could just paste it back into the textbox and resubmit if I had been logged out.

    confusion about resolution, scanning, slides etc

    There is a lot of confusion on this subject. I see discussions about it quite often on stock photo sites. Someone will point out that an image is listed as 72ppi and ask for a higher resolution image for printing. Someone then has to explain to them that the listed resolution has nothing to do...

    confusion about resolution, scanning, slides etc

    Nope, you've got it confused. Let's use a 1 inch x 1 inch image for simplicity. If you scan it at 72ppi the scanned image will be 72px X 72px. If you scan it at 144ppi then the scanned image will be 144px X 144px and appear twice as large on a computer screen (that assumes the screen uses 72ppi...

    Ya know I get ****** every time I vote

    Yes you did. :) However, you still seem to be confusing it with an election. It's not an election, it's a primary. By rights, they should hold the primaries in separate locations. One location for the Republican primary and another for the Democratic primary. They should also limit them to...

    confusion about resolution, scanning, slides etc

    A scanner is not a photo lab. You don't need a $250,000 photo lab to scan in a few, or even a few hundred slides. Here's an example of a reasonably priced scanner that can handle slides or negatives. I haven't used this scanner and am not posting this as a recommendation. It is only posted to...

    Ya know I get ****** every time I vote

    Oh, and btw, you don't have any real right to privacy in a primary. Some states use a caucus where you have to stand up and show who you are backing.

    Ya know I get ****** every time I vote

    These aren't elections, they are primaries. You are voting for a party's nominees. You also don't have a right to vote in both primaries. You are either a Republican or a Democrat or an independent or some minor party, like the Green pary. Some states only allow registered party members to vote...

    confusion about resolution, scanning, slides etc

    The resolution of images is dependent on the output device. The default for jpgs is 72ppi. This has nothing to do with the print resolution. An image that is 720px x 720px would print at 10 inches x 10 inches at 72dpi and at 5 inches x 5 inches at 144dpi. What matters is the overall size. 35mm...
