******** Notice ********

I was banned by Phil Askey in mid-January 2006, the last post I made here is about this case:-

http://www.geocities.com/ricehigh/A_Letter_to_the_CEO_of_Pentax_Corporation.html

I would like to express my sincere and deepest thanks to all my best friends here (quite many of them have already left this forum, though), who have shown their kindness and support over these years. On the other hand, I must also 'appreciate' all those others who continued to bash me to death each time I made any post on whatever subjects as well as when I replied and offered helps to some other forum members! They all let me learn a good lesson about human nature afterall.

Goodbye to all of you who read here. My friends, hope to see you all some days at a better place very soon. :-)
