Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I am fully aware of the meaning of the word democracy.

It does not include a vote based on lies, deceit, misrepresentation of fact and illegal election practices. I qualify that this probably...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I am sorry you chose to go down the route of using the tired old rhetoric. As I have said the request was genuine.

Goodnight and I hope you have a good weekend.

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

I have read your posts and that is why I asked for more.

My request was absolutely genuine and I am sorry you chose to rebuff it in such an off handed matter.

I am still open to genuine...

I have asked this question of those who voted to leave before but never received a coherent and credible reply.

Please explain why it will be worth it in the end.

Certainly not the Mail, Sun, Express, Telegraph or Sun. The Times have not been entirely factual either but at it's heart it is considerably better.

The FT is interestingly factual and to the...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

A point of information. Half the population is already disenfranchised. Myself very much included.

As far as I am concerned I am no longer represented in any meaningful way in Westminster. The...

Re: Political: We're doomed, Captain Mannering...

Absolutely correct. It's denialism and for me the same mindset as creationism and flat earthers. No matter how much information and fact, backed by evidence, nothing will cause a rethink.

Dealing with the second point regarding JRM first if I may. If only it was that simple. Whilst, for some people I suspect you may well be correct I personally regard much of what he says as the...

Re: Postive view of Olympus

Interestingly I'm not surprised. I know several serious, long term photographers who have switched to Oly and all to EM1. The common factor is that they love the smaller size factor and have seen in...

Re: Tony Northrup believes micro-four-thirds is dead

An interesting thought which I simply had not considered.

One flaw in it is that some people, myself included, decided that I would not get the grip for the Mk2 and just had an extra battery. I...

Re: Tony Northrup believes micro-four-thirds is dead

At some point m43 will die. As will APSC. Something else will come along as that is the way of technology. Personally I do not think it will be for some time due to the same technology advancing...

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

Mmmmm - not sure about the built in vertical grip. Seems at odds with one of the major virtues of m43, as frequently mentioned by a variety of Olympus people, which is the size factor.

John - Interested in your comments re printing problems. I've had no problems at all so I'm curious what you are referring to.

Re: New Olympus OMD - EM1X ?

I suspect one of the features which will be improved is video capability, which for those of not interested in that is irrelevant. However if it opens the camera up to greater sales and hence make ...

An update for those who may be interested.

After several months and much use I am pleased to report that this repair is holding well. I guess the key to success is hitting on the correct glue.

Re: BST Fox

I'm afraid I have developed a, probably, unhealthy dislike of urban foxes. They kill my chickens and ducks, even in the middle of the day when we and/or the dogs are nearby.

There are simply too...

Re: Graffiti

Now that is an extremely interesting observation. I see it completely differently in that for me the PAGB style is the root cause for precisely the same reasons.

Curious.
