Larry Winters: Maybe its just my XP machine and/or the much despised IE, but everytime I hit the "enter" tab to start a new paragraph, the whole IE locks ups.

Yes, I have EXACTLY the same problem here.
IE also locks up every time I try to insert a paragraph into quoted text, for example to address a specific point in the quoted text.

If all previous text has to be retained just to stop IE locking up then its going to clutter the forums to the point of being unreadable.

Rick Knepper: Full Frame Olympus?

FF 4/3 is an oxymoron.
4/3 is defined by the diagonal sensor dimension, NOT the aspect ratio. The image is 21.63mm diagonal, equivalent to a vidicon tube of 4/3" diameter - see
The use of sensors with 4:3 aspect ratio in 4/3 cameras, whilst near universal to date, isn't a requirement of the 4/3 standard.

The FF standard, as set down by Oscar Barnack over 100 years ago, defines a 36x24mm format - thus defining both aspect ratio of 3:2 and image diagonal of 43.3mm. That is equivalent of an 8/3" vidicon tube.

Since 8 is not equal to 4, you can't ever have a FF 4/3 solution, even "on the end".

RIP to one of the greatest humans of all time, Neil Armstrong!

All the proof that it was a conspiracy is here:

You may need to wait for the archive to update, or just press "Impatient?".

For those who question this documented archive footage, try this Wikipedia reference:

An appropriate intellectual level for the conspiracists. ;-)
