    I don't know if it's scuffs from dirty fingernails or what. In any
    case, it's a pre-production model so who knows.

    It's still cute.

    If it's the same kind of finish as the 10D I can tell you those scuff
    marks are from fingernails scraping across there. My 10D could have
    doubled as a fingernail file with that finish! After a while it wears
    a bit smoother and you aren't cleaning that stuff off all the time.

    You're right. I keep my fingernails trimmed fairly short, so I really
    haven't noticed any such marks on my 10D until I ran the backs of my
    fingernails across that area. Sure enough, my fingernails wore off a
    little on the finish. Of course, the marks wipe right off.

    WOW! Imagine that. Brian and Darrell finally found a good use for a 10D -
    as a fingernail file! <bg>

    10D - 
    I would think at that price they would have a more durable finish.

    Yeah but it's damn hard to take a good picture with a block of pure
    silver <grin>.

    I've heard that if you break it down into small enough chunks, add
    a few other chemicals, and spread it over a thin sheet of plastic,
    you can somehow use this as a "use-once" sensor. Weird.

    And properly done it will hold the image in memory without power or maintenance
    for 100 and more years.

    Wow, somebody should follow up on this new discovery, we'll make

    But the *really* weird thing is that color-blind chimps are often employed
    to make prints from these single-use sensors. Go figure.

    Yes. But I haven't played them in recent years except to make CD's from
    them. A rather long process to do well. Unlike the og crowd, I'm
    not convinced at all that og recording/playback is as good as
    digital. In any case, the music I listen to will only be good for me
    while I'm alive.

    There is no means of preserving a digital image for over 100 years
    except the "gold" CD's (and that's reasonable). The CD's most people
    burn will give a shelf life of 5 - 10 years in reasonable storage
    condtions. Without maintenance, these images will be lost (unless
    archived on 'gold' CD's). There are no "gold" DVD's out that I know of.

    (Commercial audio CD's use a very different process and good storage
    conditions should be good for 50 - 100 years, I would expect).

    Cheers,
    Alan

    Oh, fiddlesticks! I even have 3.5" diskettes that are still good 15
    years later. CDs haven't been around long enough to know when they'll
    fail if kept in proper storage.
