I can't believe some of the comments I recieved during this challenge. Make you think twice about what to shoot when shooting for a challenge cuz you gotta take into consideration the stupidity factor. Damn, I keep forgetting about that.

But there'd be endless debates on whether a metal nut or cashew or hazel nut counted. And, what about cracked nuts, or nut cases that inhabit institutions??????

And make sure your WaxOS (TM) is up to date.. You might find that the firmware in your Match isn't correct for the ISB connection (Illumination Startup Burn).

Hmmm, Too much time on my hands this morning...

Did I here you correctly, or was it the wax in my ears.

If the intensity of electric lights is commonly given as so many candlepower, i.e., so many times the intensity of a standard candle

Then candle power is electric.
According to some contributers to this thread electronic and electric are the same thing.

Ergo Candle power is electronic.

So during a power cut how can I use a match to light my electronic candle?

Anni - I laughed my a... off reading your post.

Although I risk getting this mess started again I have to comment that I have had no problem with the electric / electronic issue. What I am having problems with is that "old stuff" does not equal "low" tech. There are some great shots in there that Im having trouble bumping up above 5 because I dont see the low tech link just because the photo is of an old thing.

Oh well, Ill keep going through them.

LOL- that took a lot longer than I expected. ;-)

In RGB, G (green) = yellow (you asked for it).

I don't think so ... Yellow is the inverse of the Blue channel.


ACtually, you got 60 odd out of 200 and odd, and an average .5. That's great.

Electronics is not Electric...

But here on DPC if the voter thinks differently, then Electronics is Electric...

One thing I have learned on this site is that you must take a picture that is spot on to the challenge.
That must be your number one rule, everybody must understand in just one second that you meet the challenge perfectly...

I made the mistake once or twice, but have learned not to do that again...

Example:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/259/thumb/106621.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/259/thumb/106621.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
Challenge: Touch
I misunderstood I guess, I didn't know people where expecting Physical touch, so I took this picture (and still like it) but it scored terible, nobody (exept a few) got it...
You can see where I went wrong...

Well you learn every day...

mmm ... is this really a photography website?

I finally found a good definition of the difference between electric and electronic:
"What's the difference between "electric" and "electronic"? Well, electronic devices - such as televisions, cellular phones, computers - all process signals of some sort, signals such as radio waves or bits of data through wires. If the device doesn't process any signals - if it just pops up the toast or gets hot or turns wheels - then it's electrical.

Electronic devices all used to have vacuum tubes that had a flow of electrons going through them, which is what made them electronic. Now semiconductors do what the tubes used to, and they can involve the flow of holes as well as electrons. A hole is a spot where there should be an electron but there isn't, and they really do flow the way electrons flow. "

low-tech to me,

wheel/caveman
arrowhead/Native American
cottonpickers/gloves
etc.

Electronics are all way to hi-tech to me! So, I guess 1s for any electronic items. Just my thoughts. Van

I disagree that it is a silly statement. Rock on Karalew! You got it right. No wonder the world is in such a miserable state, we get bent because an image doesn't meet a photography challenge by our own narrow definition. Live and let live, I say.

I am curious; is there always so much animosity and cynicism here? Are people always so surly and disputatious? It is a tad toxic, don't you think?


Look I'm not showing animoisity, but there is no narrow definition is there? The definition is clear cut, it is what it is. I say take a picture of something yellow and you hand me something green, can anyone really argue that it represents yellow? No they cannot.

Anni, that was hilarious. I don't know how long you've been a member here, but you got it pegged about right! ;) Very funny. I'm going to have to print that one out!

Anni,
Absolutely hilarious!

Have you ever considered what a nightmare we're all creating for future historians? If not, you're expose' certainly gives a hint of what those great-grandchildren of ours will have to put up with if they want to try to understand their forebears. (I think embroidered jeans are a tad bit easier to handle.)

14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently

7
to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs

27 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs

53 to flame the spell checkers

41 to correct spelling/grammar flames

6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"
... another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive

2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"

15 know-it-alls who claim *they* were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct

156 to email the participant's ISPs complaining that they are in violation of their "acceptable use policy"

203 to demand that cross posting to hardware forum, off-topic forum, and lightbulb forum about changing light bulbs be stopped

111 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts *are* relevant to this forum

306 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty

27 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs

14 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's

3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group
