The Mysteries of Area 51

Musing about Area 51...

It is clearly a downer when your post are moved to Area 51, as this indicates that you are totally way off. But is it then glorios kudos, when the post is removed and reinstated in a bona fide real forum?

I mean ... on my Canon post I also predicted a green flash on mars and that the Denver Bronchos would win superbowl. Is this now official facts?!

If this is the case we all better look out for gigantic football helmets on 3 legs!

I don't know about that. I've seen some threads started here and then moved to somewhere else. As for being a downer, yes, Area 51 is right at the bottom from the other forums; and when Chris created it, it quickly became my favourite. It's a good read here.

Area 51 - our last hope

I think this forum is crucial - I was desperate for Canon info for months and especially last few weeks - how could all this HDV, AVCHD stuff be passing them by...???

and I got some "satisfaction" here in the last few weeks - especially too when "rumours" became "fact" and even Chris Hurd jumped into the fray with the posting of a pic or two...

So people read this area for sure - and I'm sure a lot of us are glad it's here. It gives people who "know" something a chance to hint as such without maybe getting themselves into NDA hot water - maybe?

Ha ha.

Big round of applause to Chris and co. for keeping on top of things and knowing when to "move" stuff around in a timely manner.

Area 51 is an important part of DV Info Net... kind of like an attic (or a basement) where you can put things and keep them out of the way... things you don't want in your living room... until suddenly it's all trendy again and you want 'em back out on the main floor.

It's also for those people who think we don't have a sense of humor around here... we do have a sense of humor, but it's more like a cross between Steven Wright and Jeff Foxworthy, with a dash of Kathy Griffen thrown in.

That's the spirit, Tim!

I'm an American

Which means I have an under developed sense of geography to begin with, but I believe that Albuquerque is in New Mexico- also a state out west w/a lot of UFO activity.

I was pulling your leg. :-)

PS: I know where Alaska is. It's on top and over to the left of BC.

New Mexico is sort of the Newfoundland of the US, just without the water.
We keep all the UFO activity down in Roswell, by the way. Otherwise you're constantly dodging spacecraft as you try to get in and out of the airport :-)
