Those are pretty intense questions to be answered via text message.

A couple of those could be answered easily via text. Others . . . not so much.

The real question is, how many of those did you actually answer? :)

And I have a question for you (not via text, but via comment on this post):

What happened to Blue-Beta? :(

No, it just means you work for the 100 Hour Board. :)

optimistic. - Indeed.

Erin - True. He said he was really bummed when I moved away from Provo, because he was used to picking my brain about random things. Then he realized I was just a text message away. :)

The Former - I answered all of the ones posted here.

BB is having server trouble, and it's not the first time, so we're taking the initiative to set things up on a more stable server. I do think that the original forum will be back up at some point and, ideally, we can then get a database dump and just move it to the new server. For now, though, we're congregating elsewhere.

Happily, his latest question (about chromatic lens aberration) was sent via email, not text message!
