    I only need a few, not $100 worth. So I ordered a few from Blueridge. Thanks! :)

    Take it back and tell them it's faulty...and explain why.

     

    I bought a Nikon digital about eight years ago (it's an antique now) that had a coupon to send in for a printed manual.  It came back inside of a week.  I understand that is no longer done.  Of course the place I bought it (The Irish electronics store, Ray D. O'Shack) is out of business now, too.

    I doubt they'll take it. I've had it since Christmas. But our enforced and unplanned absence for several months has kept me from fiddling with the camera till now.

    Didn't know any Hueys were still in regular service.  Glad to see the old darlin's are still working.

     

    I hope they find the pukes who did this and if it is Antifa an airstrike on their HQ is called for..... or at least an armed ground attack

    Air Force and Navy/Marines still fly em. Air Force is scheduled to replace them soon.

    In an upset, a Boeing-Leonardo team has won a $2.38 billion contract to manufacture a new batch of helicopters to replace the Air Force’s UH-1N Huey used to guard the service’s nuclear missile silos.Boeing and Leonardo’s MH-139, a militarized version of the commercial AW139 manufactured by Leonardo subsidiary AgustaWestland in Philadelphia, beat out Lockheed Martin Sikorsky and Sierra Nevada Corp., which both offered versions of the UH-60 Black Hawk — which some analysts saw as the service’s aircraft of choice going into the competition.

     


  4. Somebody mentioned it on Forty Rod’s thread. 
    My new camera came with a very thick manual. 
    After I ripped out the foreign language sections it’s not so huge. A lot of stuff isn’t covered.
    Then I found a section that says, “This booklet is the Basic instruction manual. More detailed instruction manuals can be downloaded from the Canon website. Connect to the Internet and access the following Canon website” So I went to the website.

    After putting in my Region North America and selecting my language from Canadian English, Canadian French, United States English (no mention of Mexico), the site says:

    This site provides instruction manuals and software for EOS, EOS accessories, lenses, PowerShot, SELPHY and professional video products.

    So I click on EOS cameras. It only gives me a choice of 5 models. None are mine. :wacko:
    But beneath that, it says

    Models except the above” Okay. Great. I click on that.

     


    It takes me here

    Arrrgggh.

    I went to YouTube and found a video by some Indian guy that gave me most of what I wanted to know at the time.
    Still no on line manual. 

    :angry:

    Putin didn't say his daughter had a fever due to CoVid. He said she had a fever...

     

    At least they aren't just  testing the vaccine on Chechens and Georgians. Then I would  really wonder...

    How do we know they aren’t? And they. Have plenty of prisons.

    When I was in the artillery, ‘65-‘68, it was 105, 155, 175, and 8”, as well as a few missiles, such as Sergeant missiles, maybe another missile. The 105s seem to have gone away. The 175s are in some allied armies, the 155 and 8” got longer tubes but the 8” went away, maybe to allied armies. It seems that all that’s left is 155.  
     

    it appears that the nuclear artillery got dumbed down and then went away.
