Even though I class myself as an acerbic hater of technology, there is no denying that it has brought with it a plethora of advantages that would have been a tad more difficult to achieve in the good old days we all hanker for!
Not least of all is the ability fo every Tom, Dick and Harry to set up a blog and either bore or entrance everybody all around the world with their postings.
Just such a few blogs came to my notice just recently.
The first one I really like is this one….www.teeritz.blogspot.com and one of the main reasons why I like it is because aside of a whole lotta very interesting vintage stuff, this guy has sourced a very rare and useful set of instructions on how to repair and/or setup that inimitable doyen of the film camera world, the Olympus Trip 35.
The second blog I took a liking to is www.xoverit.blogspot.com
This guy talks very comprehensively about his love of old manual typewriters, with plenty of stuff about repairing and generally looking after them. Interesting to note here that recently Russia announced that it would not be using computers for preparing and processing documents, especially confidential documents, as computer-generated documents are highly prone to hacking etc and could pose a serious danger to internal security.
So anyways, please do drop into those blogs if you can…I found them very interesting!
