This was from Monday:
Very nice. I'm aware you enjoy photography. I'm interested in photography, what camera/lens did you use to make those shots?

Actually those were just taken with my iPhone Xr while I was out on my run on Monday morning.

I do have a Pentax K10D (https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/pentaxk10d) that I've been using for taking photos of birds out the window next to my computer in my "home office" though. I have a Tamron 28-200 zoom lens for it, so I can get in pretty close on birds and other smaller or further away things. It was a decent camera when I got it, but that's been ~12-13 years ago, so it doesn't really compare to the newer stuff from Nikon or Canon. It's a little hard to go for a run with it too ;)

The more I hear from Martin, the more I like him. His message was short and effective - what correction needs to be made along with why it is important. Maybe 72 minutes of total BS last night influenced my perception though.

Update: I guess I lost 6 minutes last night that I will never get back. Official time of speech was 1 hour and 18 minutes.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

I agree, I like him.. Is there anyone who thinks he doesn't deserve the job permanently

Unfortunately, yes. Two BOT members are adamantly against him, and have been since before he was appointed Acting then Interim President.
