    If you like Jet's stewardesses, you'll love Mallya's gals on Kingfisher.

    No joke!

    [​IMG] I can now use my favorite lens on a digital, and I'm pretty excited about that. Funny, though the D200 will replace my 2001-vintage Olympus E10, the old Oly still has some pwnage features the D200 can't touch: Live LCD, the lack of mirror shake, it's silence, the awesome LCD that pops out and can be put at a right angle to the body for shooting ala TLR, or angled about 20 deg down for shooting above your head (and the crowd, a trick I've used many times), and a few other things. The old one served me well and I shan't be getting rid of it.
    His knives look amazing but are (deservingly) on the pricy side. Enjoy it in good health. I have not heard of anyone ordering from him directly. He seems to be a "newly discovered" knifemaker but very popular since almost everything from Mr. Itou is now sold out again at JCK. I have not seen anyone else use his prefered steel: R2. Please report on the fit and finish once you get the knife. I would have like to get a nice slicer but can't justify it since I would hardly use it. My next purchase would probably be a small Gyuto or a Santoku, in high carbon or one of the new "super powder steels".

    Interesting. I hadn't thought about that. I guess it'd be kind of like this: [​IMG] --Andre
    LOL. Great.

    Nice camera, but how did you take a picture of it?

    Sanyo Xacti CG6, I really wanted one back this summer in Japan but was stuck between a new nice digicam or a camcorder. After trying a god awful Sony NWC GC1 flash digicamcorder I decided to save for a decent Xacti, and happened to snag one on Amazon for $200, much lower than my expected budget. [​IMG] The video quality is decent in low light and good in good lighting, beats the old 8mm I used to use for track days.

    With a mirror, of course.

    No seriously -- with the Olympus E-10 digital that I was comparing the Nikon to. It was a last shot of the day thing and I didn't realize I'd bumped my tripod -- hence the odd cropping.

    (p.s. did you see the Holmes-cover Valley of Fear Strand that went on ebay a few weeks ago? I wanted to bid but set a hard limit of $500 and didn't even get on the list)

    I enjoy the occasional cigar with my scotch, don't worry. But there's something about an old-fashioned cigarette when you're halfway through a bottle of Knob Creek...it's very refreshing.

    The pack in the picture has an old school Norwegian health warning on it (prior to EEC standardization...)
    Weird...
