Wow! There are still modern day attempts at utopia.

Is it jst me, or do all attempts at utopia seem cultish? Even Wlat Disney's attempts with Celebration seem cultish to me.

Anyones thoughts on how they would define their own utopia? How would you keep is sustainable? Is sustainablitiy even possible?

I have a question for those people with Canon Digital Rebels (aka, the Canon 300D).

How good is the camera for super long exposures?

All digital camera have the hot pixel problem. Most DSRL camera, when you take a long exposure, take a second picture of the time length without opening the shutter, then subtract the hot spots on the second from the first, as they generally happen in the same place.

The digital rebel does not do this. They have an system that removed the host spots on the fly, and the results look good, but I have only seen up to a 30 second exposure.

I'm wondering if the Digital Rebel's hot spot reduction system would produce acceptable results for 15 minute exposures one would get if they were "painting with light" or couple hour exposures like with star trail photography.

I think it's amusing that I'm the 8th forward down on receiving this e-mail and the original still had the following at the bottom:

Hmmm... I don't think I'm the intended recepient. I guess the legal department will be sending the dogs after me. Ooops.

Chocolate covered macadamia nuts are better than sex! Okay, maybe I'm exagerating a little, but not by much.

Then the fresh pineapple that is all sweet and no tart... Damn near orgasmic.

I might not have been able to join the family on their trip to Hawaii, but I sure am enjoying what they brought back. :-)

Arg!!! Right Said Fred's song, "I'm Too Sexy," is stuck on replay in my head. I haven't heard it in years, and it's come back to haunt me.
