Go placidly amid the noise reduction and JPEG artifacts, and remember what peace there may be in the content of the image. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all forum members. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the Canonites and Nikonians; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the forum moderators. If you compare your gear with others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser gear than yours. Enjoy your archived files as well as your upcoming shoots. Keep interested in your own system, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your eBay affairs; for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for positive feedback; and everywhere life is full of Buy-It-Now bargains. Be yourself. Especially, do not feign technical or marketing knowledge. Neither be cynical about Sony; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of pre-SLT technology. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden equipment failure. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of blog posts and boredom. Beyond a logical workflow discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the Internet, no less than DPR and SAR; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the A-mount roadmap is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with Sony, whatever you conceive it to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your camera, lenses, and accessories. With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a usable system. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
