i especially want the pirate copies. the reason the copies suck may be the fact they're on cdrom (700mb) . the movies i download on kazaa are bad so they can be small files. i download the sopranos episodes the same week they're aired. i could subscribe to hbo , but then i'd ignore the hollyweird cr...

i wonder why there's no more porn on film . i don't really care about porno in general, it's that the movies from the 70's were so unique. when porn went to video the attitude changed as well (boogie nights ?) the idea that nobody cares about the 'story' was a big mistake . to just videotape people ...

i would really be into making any sort of pirate movie(not being sarcastic, either) i think it would be great. there's so much room for levity and humor in a project like that ..... with that kind of open-ended storyline it would be hard to make it boring . . . almost too easy.......except for the i...

sorry, i forgot your question about the screws- nope, you can't sub metal
for the plastic ones . they'd short the conacts. if you end up gluing the
stuff together , make sure it's clean first,

i'm not suggesting that you do anything. you asked the question about a nikon + i remarked what i thought was probably the culprit. if you removed the cover , you could look at the leafswitch and see if it looked busted. if you take out the screws from the film compartment you won't disturb anything...

my 715's battery door is also looking rather dubious . if 10 or 15 people were to request it , i would entertain making some replacement parts for this thing . the tabs that swing into place to lock the door are delicate and fragile looking . i'd probably make them out of delrin plastic.

i almost forgot, the screws that hold the switch together are themselves plastic! they're the ones that seem to fail + makethe switch fall apart.
