Here is the voting result:
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/62816810/SI%...ate%20list.pdf (30 kB).

So, please vote between:

Abstractions
Signs
Macro/Closeup
Pairs - Repetitions, echoes, series
Doors
Food

Three (3) votes per person. We'd love to wrap this up by Sun evening. If
the results are too spread we'll just use them as the next few mandates.


Macro/Closeup
Doors
Food

OK, I was more or less with you, up to this point. But if we need more
comments (and we do), knocking people for how they provide their comments
seems self-defeating to me.

Not everybody in the group is retired and has time to kill. I'm sitting here
on a weekend, trying to work my way through the 340 images I took at an awards
ceremony yesterday, to try to be ready for next week, when I have to
photograph a public meeting on strategic IT planning, replete with multiple
focus groups. And a "dress rehearsal" for said meeting earlier in the week.
Then the week after, another awards ceremony (with 50 recipients); and the
week after that, a reception (with national diginitaries supposedly present)
for the late Congressman "Tip" O'Neill's 100th birthday; the Arts Council's
"River Festival" the first weekend in June; etc., etc.

Don't get me wrong: I'm not bitching. I'm damned lucky that they like my work
well enough to let me do photography on company time. But that, and the "real"
rest of my job, keep me awfully busy. Sometimes I find time to participate in
the SI, sometimes not. And even when I do, I don't always have time to provide
comments on others' work. (I take commenting seriously and try not to do a
half-assed job.) So please cut me, and others in my situation, some slack.

I'm afraid I'm not in a good mood this evening. The once-a-year "supermoon" is
socked in with clouds and cannot be photographed. It peeked through for a few
minutes, but I forgot to turn on spot metering and pretty much missed the
show. Now it seems unlikely to appear again. grumble!

More original comments provided in whatever manner are desirable. So
are the individual reactions and responses from the photographers
otherwise making the comments is just blowing so much wind.

Just because I am retired does not necessarily mean that I have time to kill.

Wonderful! It is a good thing to have a rewarding job to keep you occupied.
I just shot 700+ at The Lake San Antonio Wildflower Triathon today, and
I am working my way through those. Here are a few of the siftings:

If you are up to it, comment, if not don't, but do try to get a shot or
two in for the SI. I didn't feel much like commenting on the last SI so
I didn't.
I am going to do by best to comment on the next SI if the mood takes me.

Curses! I also missed it.

And speaking of laziness, has anyone else noticed that the voting seems
mostly in favour of not having to open one's front door?

Oh? I have a few doors in mind, which to shoot them, would require
opening my front door and exert myself to reach them.


BTW Pablo: It is also poor form to add a changed "Followup-To" header,
when the subject is "On Topic" for all the groups to which it is
X-posted. Particularly a subject which has been responded to from each
of those photo-groups. It is presumptive of you to make such an
arbitrary move.
The SI has been OT for the photo-groups, and you seem to be the only
individual who has taken this step with an SI post recently.
If you are not a particular fan of the SI, which your lack of
participation seems to indicate, don't be a disruptive ass, and hide
behind a clandestine header change without at least advising what you
had done.

"Followup-To" reset.

First of all, **** off.

Looking back to try and find out what the hell you are talking about, it
seems that my newsreader automatically sets followups to whatever group I'm
reading at the time. Not something I've consciously done. Noone has
mentioned it before. Perhaps you should take it up with the kde people. If
it offends enough people, I'll consider investigating how to change the
program's behaviour.

followups bodged back for your benefit

So you have no idea how your Usenet client, KNode 4.4.8 works?


I have some issues with it, but overall it's ok. It snips sigs, replies at
the bottom, complains about long lines etc. Apparently, out of the box it
does something that you don't like. That makes me an idiot, obviously.

Not something I've consciously done.


Then I guess I should apologize for implying that you might be a
conscious and deliberate disruptive ass. There are some character
traits you just don't notice when you are that close to them.


You are a bit silly. I can't believe that we still have netkops. I thought
they died out in the 90s.

Noone has
mentioned it before.


I have now.


Do you have a killfile?

Perhaps you should take it up with the kde people.


Why? I don't use KNode 4.4.8, you do.


But you're the one with the problem. Oh, you're just showing off that you
know how to read usenet headers. You're very clever.

If it offends enough people, I'll consider investigating how to change
the program's behaviour.


Good idea.


But until then...


followups bodged back for your benefit


Much appreciated.


....that was a one-off. Continuing now to be "disruptive by default".
