Boy am I glad to read that. I'm not a photographer, but I've never been impressed with any Canon hardware, be it a camera, or a scanner, or a printer. Either the pictures are always out of focus, the stabilizer sucks, the software is shit, you name it. I don't see the appeal of Canon. Garbage hardware, garbage software, expensive.

Heh, we learned it on IBM XTs in high school. My first crack was LOGO for the Commodore 64, someone lent me their original disk and I cleverly managed to figure out the very simple protection. Why I was interested in LOGO when I was able to crack disks? Well, the BASIC on the 64 was bare-bones, and I liked making drawings without pages of BASIC POKEs and weird math.

I've been working out on an empty stomach in the mornings for years, only to be criticized by armchair specialists about how bad or impossible this is... There's plenty of reserve energy floating around the human body and there's nothing miraculous about physical activity on an empty stomach.
You think our ancestors woke up to a fully stocked refrigerator every morning?
