Re: Re: Alt-emulsion-projection



Apparently I missed the tongue...and the cheek, hehe.

It's hard to identify sarcasm on the list (and I think that's where most
of the arguments on this list originate).  At first I read your post as
sarcastic (noting the words "glowing reviews"), but then I started
thinking maybe you had actually read some good articles about cyano rex. 
Just wanted to make sure.

Maybe we should institute a policy to add [sarcasm][/sarcasm] tags around
our jokes... :)
