Hah! I'm a nurse, you can't scare me with something that can't be

swear I could have "projected" 30 paces.

cares to share.

Tell us more. You're talking to a fairly large number of
ex-computer professionals, some not so ex. What kind of camera,
what kind of computer, what software. Is the camera configured as
a external drive, or does the software HAVE to be used to get the
pix? If it's an external drive and you're using winders, does the
camera show up as a drive using explorer?

OK, but if you haven't noticed, OT is what we do a lot of around
here. Occasional WWg content allowed. I really was thinking
about sharing it with the group BTW, there are A LOT of brains
here to pick.
Dave in Fairfax
Alrighty. If I am not too busy tomorrow then I will post a new thread
regarding my computer problems.
Presently I am falling asleep at the keyboard and in need of 5 or 6
solid hours of sleep.

Thank the Gods. I was starting to wonder if we should be worry,
what with an e-mail address what says "missjaime".
Some is good, more is better, too much is just enough.
The first question is WHY. Most people here use a munged addy and
have an working addy written out in their sig line so that the
spambots have a harder time collecting the real addy. The ladies
on the wRECk are very welcome and very competent, we'd be glad to
add you to their number. Even if you won't comment on suckage.
Your appreciation of good wood is, however, appreciated. %-) The
confusion on the gender and addy is because, in some cases,
partners both use a single addy and you can't really be sure which
one you're talking to. There are also a couple of addys that are
odd enough that you can't be sure which bender the person is, Bob
the builder comes to mind.
If you do any turning, you may want to take a look at
news:rec.crafts.woodturning as well. A number of the people her
on both NGs.
Dave in Fairfax
Dude, chill out. You haven't offended anyone. We're *teasing* you. It has
long been the practice here on the Wreck (ie rec.woodworking) to tell
someone how much he sucks when he has a "gloat." The original poster in
this thread most assuredly has a gloat. By telling him how much he sucks,
we reaffirm how gloatable his gloat is, and make him feel all warm and
fuzzy and stuff. It's all part of the Wreck culture, and things have been
done this way for years. Getting told you suck is about the highest honor
we can offer.
You are *not* obligated to participate in this silliness. Many don't.
Loving wood and woodworking is a great thing. We all do. We also give
each other a hard time. Like the way Larry Jaques is always ranting about
the evils of staining walnut or using poly, and the way I'm always singling
him out and giving him a hard time about everything for no particular
reason. We're a bunch of smart alecks. JOAT is one of the smarteyest
alecks of all, although I don't guess we've ever had a contest to determine
who is actually the smarteyest aleck of all. Hell, it might be me. Or
Larry Jacques. It's probably Larry. Definitely. Definitely Larry. See,
there I go singling him out again, and somewhere in the Pacific northwest
the guy is scratching his head and wondering what he did to deserve another
assault on his character. :) (At least I finally learned how to spell his
name right.) Anyway...
You walked into the middle of that, and we were trying to show you the
ropes, so to speak, in a humorous fashion. You seem to have taken it
completely the wrong way. So chill out, calm down, and hang out a bit.
I've been online in one fashion or another for years (almost as long as
there was an online to hang out in, but not quite), and I've hung out in
too many different places to count. The Wreck is special. I think even if
I sold all my wood mangling equipment tomrorow and decided to take up cat
grooming for a hobby, I'd still hang out here just for all the discussion
among friends that only tangenitally relates to wood.
Nobody can make you stay, and you're free to go as you please. Just please
don't fly off in a snit because we poked you in the ribs. The key to this
whole thing is that you shouldn't take anything too seriously unless it's
safety. Republicans and Democrats, Christians and Pagans, young and old,
male and female, Sawstop advocates and Sawstop detractors, shellac users
and Minwhacks poly-izers, Normites and Royds, the one thing we all always
agree on is the importance of keeping all your body parts in working order,
and on trying to keep the red stuff inside where it belongs.
