Thank you, thank you <bowing deeply> I want to thank my parents, my wife, and all the "little people" who have made this moment possible. In particular, I want to make mention of my high school poli-sci teacher, who was an infant polio survivor, and who taught me that "It's not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog". Taking issue with products made by a company like Nikon hasn't always been easy, as they have their supporters, heck, even followers and zealots, who are unable to find fault with their products, no matter what adversity those users have had to bear. But, in my quest toward keeping the film scanner world informed, I will continue to persevere, through power spikes, aliasing storms or shadow noise in the deepest Dmin of the night, focusing and defocusing, and then focusing again. I will take steps and microsteps, motorized or otherwise, toward this goal, knowing that as I progress, I am helping to enlighten, by LED, cold cathode, or other means, those who can benefit from from my ramblings. As I ride the film carrier of life, I will look back upon this day, and this award, with the contempt with which it has been given. I will wear it as a badge of honor, until my eyes grow dim and I am packed into a giant flatbed scanner box, and buried beneath the noise floor. Thank you all again. I'll never forget you or this day! Art ;-) Moreno Polloni wrote: >>However, I'd be happy to update this information as soon as someone with >>more authority provides some other information.
