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. "

mmm ... is this really a photography website?

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...

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.

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.

I suggest me make the next challenge of a nut so we all don't have to disect it.

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??????

I am confused.

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?

You need a digital candle.

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

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...

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.
