Elsinore: Yugoboy: I need voting enabled for THIS^ OBO for Farktographer.(I'll be asking at farktography.net, too)It's fixx0red
Yugoboy: I thank you, and I'm sure Farktographer does as well, as all 3 of his OBOs are doing better than my three right now.
oddmind: *Sigh*. I've been doing so well, remembering to enable voting..then I screw up on my first try today. Not that it really needs voting...but just the same, may I impose on someone to fix that?Thanks.
kashari: Is anyone else having problems voting? I did a few last night, but now when I try I keep getting an "Are you a bot?" message and it doesn't record my vote and these are ones I hadn't voted for earlier.

Have you reported this to Farkback?

Flab: Hi folks, I have an old Minolta Maxxum 450si SLR that is gathering dust in my closet and Mrs. Flab has handed me an ultimatum.I notice that there's a pile of them on e-Bay... Should I even try selling it there? If so, the whole package, just the 35-70mm lens, just the manuals? Or is it a waste of time and I should just hand it over to a place that recycles electronic gadgets?
Yugoboy: If it's gathering dust, then figure out a fair price and ask about 50% more
ravnostic: Call your local school district and see if any of the high schools teach photography.
Eeek: Hooray! Animals! We need some concert photography next!
Flab: I know that Minolta lenses fit on newer Sony cameras, but still, it's a very standard lens, that's 15 years old...
Flab: I'm not sure there's a big market for that!
DirkTheDaring: Hi everyone!I'm finally starting to give up my training wheels (read: taking my dSLR off automatic mode) so any constructive criticism/tips you have for any of my photo submissions will be received gladly. I'm here to learn.
Here's an early b-side from tonights contest
Zero Exponent: Here's an early b-side from tonights contestImmediately thought of the Farktography contest, and ravnostic--who is always saying he needs more round tuits.
Bigdogdaddy: Politicians are financial deadbeats? Who woulda thunk?
ravnostic: U-Man; I keep going back to your light bulb picture and scrolling upanddown, upanddown.
U-Man: ravnostic: U-Man; I keep going back to your light bulb picture and scrolling upanddown, upanddown.ravnostic, I noticed that too. The effect is more pronounced on my laptop than on my desk.btw - they are clear glass marbles, arranged on a window screen (propped up on my desk and a light stand) with ambient light from my computer monitor and a small light underneath. Something like a 10 sec exposure (f/10ish for some depth of field). Then I shined a laser light on single marble for 1/2 - 3/4 of the exposure time.Your ferris wheel rocks. I gotta find one of those next summer.
oddmind: ravnostic--This is probalby getting a little much for the main thread, so I thought i would continue with the glass marbles here. What you want to search for is "glass lampworking" or "torch work." Hopefully, you live in an area where you can find a class. Keep me posted! The result is sure to be photogenic, as well as fun to make.
ravnostic: I looked around, and the city of Mesa has a glass program with it's art department (Mesa is good that way...for now.) The whole 7 week beginning class is around $350 with supplies. Not in my discretionary funds at the moment. But they have a one day marble class that's $42 plus $15 in supplies, in November and on a Sunday following a non-Saturday schedule (I work nights, w-f and every other sat., till 6:30am). That might be the ticket.Thanks for the search info--it narrowed me down to nearby Mesa, though I'd suggest their art department invest some of them funds into a better website. Sheesh--it was awful.
