I run a browser plug-in that changes all gender references to "it." Sometimes it gets confused and mixes "she" and 'it." I'll let you extrapolate. (Not a commentary on gender, just a joke.)
In all seriousness, I don't have a problem with "she" being used. Women have plenty of obstacles to face. It doesn't take a lot of maturity to get past this to get the benefit of the article, but if being obsessed with gender is such an issue then maybe you should be a Google engineer with a gender axe to grind.
I know your name from somewhere. I think you directed Lawrence of Arabia, right?
You're precious, Veljko, don't ever change.
He mentioned running the shower hot for a few minutes to saturate and weigh down dust particles. It's possibly a good idea, but I'd let the room cool down a bit so some of the humidity goes down. A) High humidity could cause dust to stick to the sensor; B) High humidity in a hot environment could condense on a camera brought in from a cooler, drier environment.
I was thinking that same thing. Maybe adapters could be designed that could make them work.
I would imagine the film path was curved only in the lateral direction. My guess is that the sensor would be curved vertically and horizontally, like s small section taken out of a sphere. But you make a good point about it not being all that new.
The tape trick didn't really cut it, for me, but the paint on the rim of the glass worked nicely. Cool trick with the anti-stink spray.
