Hey all,

Welcome CBC! Congratulations on graduating art school.

I'm pretty rusty, as I wasn't aware of the full frame issue, unless that refers to needing full 16x9 (1920x1080) HD resolution?

Once you go Full Frame, you never go back. I see no issue :D

I can't say I'm surprised, Savannah, your intellect has always been obvious.
Laugh? indeed. Think? yes.
a smile is a grand gift, thank you for that.
I just hope you'll share this gift with us, a little more often.

Thank you

I got the local store to stock Malta goya and india.
I find that i like it best served at thirty degrees in the bottle, especially with pizza or spicy food.
Almost frozen.
I wonder if that will work out the same with beer?

Yeehah! It is raining cats dogs and small ponies here. Maybe there is hope for the Playa surface after all? Say, may I have a Snuggler, heavy on the Schnapps?

Good morning!

*starts ECM*

it is raining here too, Elliot, freezing rain supposed to turn to snow later. "Snowquester," they are calling it, since folks are closing stuff down & cancelling meetings here. I will be at my desk for 12 hours as per usual

Hershey's... *perk* Good coffee, thanks mdf. Weather sounds rotten. I haven't looked out yet. I have an offsite clusterfuck, er. I mean training session for a big project that is woefully unsupported by instructions. We are all going to get together and "figure it out." This means a group of mainly alpha males disregarding instructions tearing open all the boxes and pushing logic over the cliff. I will be wearing a rubberband around my wrist to snap whenever I have any idea that might impede the frenzy. I will watch and learn.

Morning everyone! Got rained on as we watched the Bay Bridge get lit up with Leo Villareal's magical LED light show. Will be on for two years. 25,000 lights whose never ending variety is run off his laptop. Really incredible Huge mob out on the Embarcadero to see it. We were located by the Space Ship. Fun night and the rain seemed to make it even more so.

Before the lighting, my daughter took us on a tour of the new Exploratorium at Pier 15 nearby. It does not open to the public for another month. It is the size of 3 football fields and is really and truly incredible. When you are in the Bay Area, you must see it and spend a day "playing" with all the gadgets, gizmos and exhibits. It brings science theory to life. It really defies description! I'm volunteering to help with the move in on Sunday morning along with a bunch of other Burners and other folks. There will be teams working on this project from 8:30 in the morning till 9:30 that night in about 4 or 5 locations. Huge project! Another great reason to visit the Bay Area, as if you needed another reason! :lol: :lol: :coffee:

Now for for some coffee. Carpe Diem

I'm very jealous of the light show! Sounds like you had a great time. Gots pics and/or video?!
I wish Philly will get inspired and do something like this.

Hey Chad, did not take any photos, but there was a very good shot of it in yesterday's New York Times. You really need to see it in motion as that is the really incredible part of the project. I'm sure that there must be something on the internet about it.
