  • No, but she was the Secretary of State.  There is no process or ceremony for classification and declassification.  She had OCA for everything she and/or her department produced.  If the Secretary ...
  • Sure.  If the Secretary of State writes in an email " Talk to Putin?  I am going to kill the little prick" of course that is sensitive.  But, really?  Like, Putin cares - or doesn't know?  A lot of ...
  • Since you (I assume) don't have the original authority to de-classify it, yes, it is still classified and you are in deep doo-doo.  But if you did have that authority, you could declassify it, and ...
  • Replied in Crickets...
    Back again, I see.   Shill school starting late today?
  • If you have your arm straight, rotating the forearm so the palm points towards the ground locks the elbow.  If you are shooting one handed, that helps resist the recoil. For the same reason you ...
  • It is not only a matter of professions.  By the time you reach my age, you don't have to be very diligent to have read a lot of books - especially if you don't have a television. As for ...
  • Replied in Crickets...
    Well, you and your friend with the malodorous screen name both said it was all becoming too much for your delicate sensibilities and you weren't ever going to answer any of the questions you had ...
  • There is a subtle difference, in that the -ing forms emphasises duration, implying that the process started before and will continue beyond the period of observation - as in "I saw him running ...
  • Well, I was right about that. If you have done it, you know there is no difference.  If you haven't done it, that says everything anyone needs to know about your standards. You think I like talking ...
  • ... just to have enough taxpayers to keep the pension fund solvent. The average age of the German population is rising 5 years every ten years, and by 2030 half the population will be retired. The ...
  • What do you think?  That there is some way of distinguishing wells that are full just at the end of the integration period from wells that were full a few milliseconds earlier?
  • Woohoo!  Did you think anyone hadn't guessed? There is no need to be shy. We all understand that this is Episode 456 of the soap opera We Must Find Some Reason Mirrorless Cameras Are Better . You ...
  • I will hazard a guess it's a waste of time asking you for evidence that would make a material difference. However, the fatuity of the distinction is revealed in weasel phrase " based on the [RAW] ...
  • So, you are agreeing that no one needs to look at in-camera RAW histograms? And, as an aside, for the benefit of the folk who think you do, you might highlight your observation that ETTR should be ...
  • Why is it risky? Bracketing is not an alternative to ETTR, it is an alternative to looking at in-camera RAW histograms for telling whether you have the best exposure. Your claim is that "I have to ...
  • If you don't have time to bracket, you don't have time to look at the histogram and take the shot again, do you? Well, that is not what everyone else is arguing for. They claim you have to adjust ...
  • Sure. As I said, "It is not in dispute that digital images have less exposure latitude and benefit from a slightly different approach to exposure setting compared to negative film". Of course you ...
  • I would like one too, but here are a few thoughts as to why it may not happen. Nikon may not think they would sell enough.  Recently Thom Hogan did a survey of his readers , and the demand was for ...
  • You have said, in a vague way, that you used it, not shown how you used it or how it made a difference. And you have simply ignored the alternative solution: bracket, look at all the variants, and ...
  • That is Epson's advertising claim.  I have never seen an independent measurement higher than 2.4 - if you have a link to one please share. Even if a print can reach Dmax of 2.8 that is still less ...
