    I like film photos, although digital is convenient for internet posting and emails.

    Sign of the times unfortunately. If you can't keep up, your gonna fall off into obscurity.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I know. I just read some history on Kodak and I admired the founder. Too bad they didn't grasp a few concepts like timely and suitable change and innovation, and decentralization of decision making.
