Despite the wet and windy UK weather, it would appear that most Northern Hemisphere members are still enjoying their holidays – this was a quiet week with only 38 messages between members.
On the technical side, a member was asking for recommendations for Hard Drive manufacturers who offered a 5 year guarantee. Sadly, this seems to now be a thing of the past, with only a few offering even a two year warranty.
Point and shoot cameras appeared again, with thoughts on the Pentax Tough, while there were lots of recommendations for a London location to shoot a skyline panorama from.
Pricing for prints is always a difficult area – especially when, in the case of one member, he’d been asked to provide a quantity of ‘work in progress’ prints over a period of months. Other members gave their advice and expertise.
And lastly, one member was having a clear-out and wanted to know how long the UK tax authorities wanted him to keep his paperwork for. It’s seven years – but other members pointed out good reasons to keep it longer.
