New Blog Updates Coming on Thursday (Photokina detox in progress)

Photokina 2012 was wildly exciting, and one side-effect of the non-stop excitement is that it kicked our noisy behinds, giving us a gift in the form of a stubborn burnout. The more efficient way to deal with stubborn burnouts is to take a break, so we are taking a break until Thursday September 27, 2012. Trying to slugfest through a burnout is not very productive and it significantly increases the number of typos/errors/confusions/etc.

Starting on Thursday, the plan is:
+ catch up with what happened in the meantime
+ deal with the sprawling Photokina Skybox at the top of the page
+ launch new stock status pages for the Photokina cameras (vote in Feedback Poll if you have preferences)
+ plan the October 2012 Quirky Contests
+ and all the other usual stuff

+ the sub-domain blogs (Lens Reviews, Camera Deals, Camera Reviews, Stock Status Pages, etc) will be evaluated later-on on an individual basis
+ return of a full-text RSS feed for the main blog
+ the above will be in-conjunction with new experiments for indirect reader funding (affiliate programs, etc) to compensate for the negative financial impact of the above two steps
