Some posts are hard to read with the html code being displayed. Is that going to change? Thanks for the great site.

The conversion system has a few bugs unfortunately and the encoded characters, or I should say lack thereof, is one of the noted issues.

I hope to have this issue resolved as soon as I find an efficient solution.

And Wiz, great to see you back! Where have you been? Still have the XC? We've missed you round these parts :D

You can blame budrichard for my absence... :)

I bought a new camera system and got totally involved to the exclusion of everything else, including work. :(

The XC is going great, touch wood. It'll be two years old in August and the only problem so far has been two failed brake sensors (a common problem with the MY2002).

What a fantastic car!! :D

Happy to hear all is well but you know, you could combine your hobbies and shoot photos of the car. :D

What camera did you get?

I purchased a Nikon D70 a couple months ago but haven't had the time to get right into it quite yet.

I bought a Leica and a bunch of lenses. I have a digital camera but I hate it. I'll have to get a film scanner to post pics but I'm hoping to do that in a while. :)

The D70 is a very good product from all I've read. Despite my move to an "old-fashioned" rangefinder camera, I've kept my Nikon SLR gear.

However, I have to say that there is no comparison between my Nikkor lenses and the Leica lenses. The Leica glass is just stunning, ridiculously expensive but I think the results are probably worth it.

Welcome back Wiz and glad to hear that you and the XC are doing well! :D
Sounds like you put your little hiatus to good use. I'll look forward to more of your valued input on a number of XC related issues...just like old times! :)

Hey Art how are you? Bet you're excited over the Stanley Cup finals! :D

I've missed this place & all of you guys, but work has been insane. I'll try to get here more often - thanks for the welcome back! :)

I've heard some very good things about the Leica's, care to share any samples of your work? ;)

I'm still in experimentation mode with the D70 but have noted a huge improvement since switching from the Coolpix 990. Had been waiting for a reasonably priced Nikon DSLR for some time now as we already have a collection of lenses for our F90X (aka N90S in the USA). Really happy that they not only brought out a reasonably priced model, but that it's also such a great camera overall. :)

and on the topic of NHL.. final game just started.. I'm out

If/when I get a scanner then I will be able to post.

One of the nice things about the D70 is that it will accept most of the older Nikkor lenses, both manual and AF and Nikon are producing new lenses for their DSLRs all the time. I've used a D70 and I liked it. Great choice!

Other than the Flames losing the cup last night, I can't complain Wiz. :)

Have to say though, we really missed your presence on the site...just wasn't the same without ya! :D

Well I was very impressed with the welcome the team received when they got back to Calgary. Many cities would have turned their back on a losing team. Very sporting fans and a credit to the region! :)

Thanks, Art - it's good to be back. And I'm talking tires with gibbons!! :D
