        If it'll make you feel better, we can strangle ojneg on a rope of his own guts. He probably won't like it!
        Or we can write him a sternly written letter and sign it by hand.
        Either one. Pm me.

        I don't know the cause of this upset, and I am not going to go looking for it. It's a community: it takes all sorts. And hey, just because someone is a Trump supporter or a Brexit supporter doesn't mean they have nothing that I can't talk to them about. Heck, I even make friends with rich people in the audio community!

        …unless you're writing a new game engine. Or spacecraft simulations. Or ballistics study. Or high explosives. Or the impact of gamma rays on radioisotopes used in medicine. Or nuclear energy.

        Or what happens to water when you drop a rock into it.

        So, maybe not so impractical?

        Thank goodness the company-pension minimum contribution was not optional. But sadly, I ignored all the good advice to pay more.

        Can't remember if you've seen Knights of Sidonia but it's worth a watch if you want something a bit heavier.

        Loved Gundam Unicorn! Good return to classic form for the series, and the animation was top notch. Good palate cleanser after Iron Blooded Orphans (which was still good but... eh?).

        Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket is probably one of my fave Installments even though I haven't seen 70% of the other Gundam series.

        "War in the Pocket" is next I think. I loved I.B.O. Mikazuki Augus is the Guts-version of a gundam pilot. Unicorn was good, not my favourite. "Knights of Sidonia", will look that up...

      I love the Cure. Not much of a fan of their radio hits. Songs like The Short Term Effect, From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea and The Kiss are where they really shine- layers of swirling guitars and synths. When Robert Smith starts busting out funk licks I tune out though.

      The Cure reminds me of Kate Bush and Siouxsie & The Banshees. Some songs feel like small universes with a symphonic coherence...

        Think I'm alone thinking [The Same Deep Water as You] is epic and a beautiful transition into Disintegration, and you do need to be in the mood... also, in America, they use to skip Same deep water, we just don't get it-- lol

        I loved Fujifilm Velvia 50 and Kodak TMax.

        The Velvia sim in the Fuji cameras is pretty good.

        CaptureOne (even the free Fuji edition) has Velvia sim also, so maybe you could give that a try if you're shooting raws. The Pro edition also has it. IIRC they worked directly with Fuji for those looks.

        For natural portraits Kodak film was better i.m.e. I simply loved, still love the lively colours Fujifilm could bring. A good picture is not always accurate. Sometimes a good picture is (a little) exaggerated...

        I leaned a great lesson a couple of weeks ago. If you are cooking for a large group do your prep work way ahead. 18 people is a lot more cooking and coordination than I thought. And it was only Julia Child grilled burgers! Those minced shallots are so good.
