4/5     Why is that the text overlay feature (i.e., date/timestamp) only
        exists in higher end digital cameras?  Is it that expensive of
        a feature to put in?  I want just a basic digital camera that
        does what my regular camera does.  Timestamp, auto-flash, etc...
        The digital camera that have text overlay usually have movie
        mode too which I don't care about.  Any suggestions?
        \_ if you get prints from somewhere like Shutterfly, they'll print
           the EXIF info on the back of the print--that might be sufficient
           for your needs.  -tom
           \_ It does actually, thanks!
           \_ Don't get too used to using Shutterfly.  They're not long for
              this world.  They're headed directly to the FC Hall of Fame.
              \_ What about others?  Ofoto (owned by Kodak), Snapfish,
                 etc?  Do they print the EXIF info?

           If they're typical i2 employees, then no shit i2 is fucked.

4/6     Make a short animated cartoon and submit it to:
        \_ that's great! those are fucking hilarious! if you liked
           that web site why don't you check out
   It has
           information about the Kansas legislature! fun!
        \_ i don't know why this got deleted.  it's just hilarious!
   so entertaining!
           good times! fun!
        \_ ugh... those are agonizing to watch
         \_ it depends. if you catch it at the right time,
                it moves at the correct pace. Though of
                course I'm a little slower than most
                people. Also the machine you're using
                \_ Fix your title. It says it is something like id=415992
                obviously has a lot to do with it.
                It seems to work less well on Macs (bummer).

4/6     Copyright question: when I use dict and get back a result like
        "From Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913) [web1913]:"
        Is that the 90 years copyright in effect?  If that new copyright
        law hadn't been passed in the late nineties, would we be using the
        1933 dictionary?  More applicably, is Webster's in any way
        profiting from their extended copyright here?  Who's buying or
        selling dictionarys from 1913?
        \_ Well, anyone who wants a copyright to end is obviously a
           \_ Yes.  True.  And?
           \_ Everyone already knows that.
