RE: HDTV, Super 16, 24fps vs. 30 fps and "ABOMINATION" (fwd)

Tim Bond <Bond007 at concentric.net> sort of said:

Tim raises a splendid point here: some of the most lively (and outrageous!)
postings have been as a result of mudslinging or conversely defense of
equipment. One of the best things about reading the material on the TIG is
enjoying the visceral epithets which occasionally surface as a result of
folks slagging off each other's gear. And after all, English is such a
colorful language for this purpose.
Where's Michael Reikel when you really need him?

P.S. Does anyone in LA know where Innovation TK are at? They were alleged
to be coming to visit Editel at 10am on Tuesday and never showed.
If you come across them wandering on the streets of Hollywood or Santa
Monica, please could you ask them to give me a call at the office (213)
I had heard a rumor that URSA Diamond is going to eschew the Twigi product
in favor of Accuglow. So why is everyone I have talked to buying Twigi, eh?
Riddle me that, Batman.
It would be nice to hear some propaganda from the various players about
this, if Rob could permit a little veiled advertising directly on the
group, as I suspect this issue is going to directly or indirectly affect
the majority of readers in the coming months.
Otherwise, maybe some more detailed user reports from the folks who have
already installed either system?
