Do I have to remind you two gentlemen that I still have the negatives*?

 ;)

I'm going to need a couple more weeks to get the ute finished.


*for younger readers negatives are what you used to lose in the old days before you could accidentally delete a file.

Oh, no you haven't!  ;D

You should have checked them recently, Brian 'may' have subcontracted some Victorians to expose them to the light.

But negatives weren't affected by light ? The undeveloped film was, but once developed it was ok. You needed to treat it with a fair bit of respect, but it was ok  ;)

May I refer my learned Moderator to the final sentence of reply #79. 

Said contact prints include images of the Mods helping the aged, the infirm, the poor, the needy, the homeless, smiling at children and handing out fluffy kittens.

Car based pickup.  El Camino, Ranchero, Brat for example.  Short for Utility.

I'd definitely want those destroyed.  I have a reputation to live down to.

Hahaha!! It's a movie quote. I guess it's more known here in the states, I didn't consider that. From "My Cousin Vinny."

Such a good movie.  :lol:

The moderators have met in plenary session (even though we're 12000 miles apart, the travel expenses claim is already filed...) and have decided, MUCH against our better judgment, that we'll grant a two week extension to this Group Build.

That means the GB will now end at 2359 hrs local time (wherever you happen to be) on October 14th 2019.

This will no doubt trigger a rush on westward bound airline flights as the REALLY slow builders (which includes me....) try and maximise the amount of available build time.  ;)

[Date fixed now]
