Yea I think IS is not needed...I made a thread just now lol

They've been very specific before and it didn't help. :/ I think I'm going to revamp how the themes are selected. Right now the winner picks the theme, but I think it would be better to start a thread and get a list going of future themes.

that's a good idea GT.. we could keep the 'winner picks' but simplify it -- the winner picks from the top 5 or so on the list?

Maybe being specific isn't the greatest idea, then. That being said, maybe i'll put something together with a large timeframe that people can really think on and hopefully deliver something really inspired.

This is interesting for anyone who hasn't already seen it. http://www.lensrentals.com/blog/2012/01/lens-repair-data-2011

Especially this part:
Quote:
It may just be us, but during the last year we’ve had an amazing increase in the number of repairs that went straight back to the Service Center because the repair wasn’t made correctly. About one in 20 repairs had to be done over, far more than any previous year. If the problem was inadequate resolution it was one in 10 repairs. We had 8 lenses that required 4 or more trips to finally get repaired properly. Probably the most disappointing part was that 19 lenses were returned to us with a fingerprint or lubricant smear left on an inner element during the repair

That sounds strangely familiar. Now, of course Roger doesn't name which repair centers or even which companies' repair centers had this issue, but its still kind of shocking that it happens so often.

EDIT: Nvm in the comments section he mentions Canon having issues with repeat repairs. Not the Irvine center though. Interesting nonetheless.

Yeah, I think I've gone full circle and am back to giving up on him. It's too bad, I had hope again.

In other news, it really needs to be Monday like nao. Then, we need to fast forward a week and let it be next Tuesday, preferably immediately after. Actually, screw that, I kind of want to watch the Pats get revenge on the Ravens tomorrow.. that'll make waiting for Monday not entirely terrible.

Oh, insert random photography thing here - uh...
