    I hesitated about posting this, but Frank (Flew) said I should...

    Q: How many forum members does it take to change a light bulb?

    1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed

    14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently

    7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

    1 to move it to the Lighting section

    2 to argue then move it to the Electricals section

    7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

    5 to flame the spell checkers

    3 to correct spelling/grammar flames

    6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb" ... another 6 to condemn those 6 as stupid

    2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

    15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct

    19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum

    11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum

    36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty

    7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

    4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's

    3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group

    13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, just to add "Me too"

    4 to post about how much better the forum was when they first joined...

    5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy

    4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"

    13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"

    1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over

    L to start a thread arguing which thread is the right one - left or right

    Where were you guys before

    When I lived in Huntsville, I was looking desperately for guys like you (fellow photogs to get together to talk, exchange info, learn and shoot etc. Suddenly I counted at list 4 on this thread alone!

  10. Bill,

    The two guys that started the Nikon Cafe are Frank & Patrick who live in Madison & Huntsville respectfully. There are a few Huntsvillians in the Cafe. :D  :D  :D  :D  :D

  15. What type of laguage is this?

    What on earth are you chaps yakking about.

    Please remember that there are proper spoken English people using this site who are not use to your yankee doodle twang. So could we have a little more decorum, and less of the twang, otherwise I will start posting in a CORNISH DIALECT and then none of you will understand a word of what is written.

    From a 67 year old fart.(see previous post).

    Comeason an ave a pasty dreckly me hansome. Bob F.

    I know it. They eaited until I moved out before starting this (just kidding). Anyway, I do miss Huntsville a lot, especially when I get stuck in the traffic and that is almost everyday.

    Thanks for telling me. Is one of the co-founder Frank Wilson?
