    Ummm...

    don't wait until the good times pass??... if you find yourself anywhere near a place called Hesitation(I've looked at all my maps and I reckon it's on foreign shores ) make sure there are no plains(or planes??..maybe?).

    are the 'bones of thousands' a reference to dogs? or simply a direct analogy to the skeletal remains if you find yourself waiting for the good times(that may have just passed), waiting for a plane to land on the plains just near Hesitation?

    damned! now I'm afraid to rest my weary bone for fear it'll try to commit suicide or something!

    The frame arrived today (so quick); everything is beautiful. The photo is printed beautifully and the frame superb. I am blown away by the quality of service. Rick, you can have a great deal of confidence in this sponsor and I will use them again.

    Cheers,
    Jenny

    Just pre-ordered a book from Fishpond....shame it won't be released until August 1st. No doubt I will have forgotten about it by then so it will be a pleasant surprise when it turns up.
    Will let you know.

    Last week I ordered a Lens & Flash plus other goodies from B & H/ via UPS, received 4 days after posting 2.5 days of this within Aust. They were well packed and I am totally happy.

    I will certainly use them again.

    Just a note, if you click on the banners above and then make your order, AP gets commission, which all helps to give me the funds to keep the site online (hosting costs etc) and any additional monies are given back in prizes from time to time. But you have to click through to the sites from the banners on AP and then make your purchase. It doesn't cost you any more for your order, the advertisers just send a little commission my way, so if members would be kind enough to use the banner links, it would be appreciated.

    Hi Rick, I did that but I have no idea whether it came to you or not. Would be nice if the order had some reference to AP as an Agent or referee.

    I was sure, and it seems I am not the only one
    That Servaas Products, who now seem to be Protog were a site sponsor, is this not the case ??

    Was looking at some products they have but can get elsewhere for moderatley less so was going to push the business their way to help out here ??

    Jeff is currently rebadging his business and changing the name of it is part of that process. He will be re-launching soon. In the meantime check out the new site : http://www.protog.com.au/

    Cheers Rick,

    I found his site, I was just enquiring as to whether he is still a site sponsor, as that could sway my purchase choice.

    Sort of. Jeff and I are presently renegotiating his contract due to the change of company names, website etc. New banner ads are coming, but the old ones are down cause they point to the old business name. Because I have legally binding contracts, we need to finalise it all and get it all re-signed under the new company name etc. But certainly I would not say 'don't buy from him cause he isn't an advertiser", its just that at present its a bit messy.

    Most certainly would not - "not buy from him because he is not an advertiser" -

    For once I am actually not in any great hurry to spend my money so will probably just wait until you get it all settled and then buy

    @Goatch - with any grey or OS advertiser you need to check the legals on warranty for yourself.
    AP are not responsible.

    As I understand things some brands have international warranty on lenses but not bodies.
    Eg: http://ww2.nikon.com.au/warranty.php
