It's OK, I always wear a flame-retardant vest while on the Internet.  ;)

BTW, as I said before, I'm not a hater. I just think critically about 
technology. Cases in point: I don't have a smartphone. I still have 
my collection of vinyl records. And I'm still using the same email 
program, Eudora, that I used back in the 1990s during the first round 
of "Flameworks" posts that forced me off the list. And why do I cling 
to these old ways? Not because they're old, not because I resist 
change, but because I have evaluated my needs and decided that these 
older technologies are better for me. New is not necessarily good, 
and old is not necessarily good, either. But in the case of celluloid 
film, very soon it will be a moot point, because you won't be able to 
buy it for love or money. --
