Here goes. The original topic that contains the words found in the Title of this thread has been closed, so I can't make the comment there. And at the risk of being called a fanboy on several levels, I would like to request that the Forum Owner ban the author of the phrase for at least 10 years. As a fat, old, hairy reader of this forum, I take offense to that characterization. No suspension, no probation..just make him history. AND, make the announcement as the last entry in the Topic, so any like minded authors can have pause for thought.

Well, poor Jerry thinks he's "special" because Adobe and NAPP decided to do a last minute wide beta release for purposes I'm not at liberty to completely explain (but DID have to do with the platform Jerry uses). And I do know the circumstances regarding the NAPP testers involvement and what rules have been set and the primary motive was for technical testing not so much marketing...

Jerry seems to think I've had a falling out and I'm no longer a "beta tester" for Adobe...which is really pretty funny because he's essentially correct...I don't do a lot of "beta testing" anymore because I don't have the time for it (although I do submit bug reports). I do a lot of engineering development and consultation on Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop. Which is, of course, not beta testing but still subject to NDAs...

I'm actually not in the least bit pissed off by the phrase "fat, old, hairy friend". It's both descriptive and accurate; I am a friend of Andrew and I am fat, old and hairy.

Well he’s somewhat special at least as a “Super Moderator” over on the ProPhoto forums where he feels its OK to delete posts where he’s called out for the same issues discussed here. So he’s both a special late beta tester who needs to hone his Photoshop skills and a censor. Now I do know who I feel more sorry for, its Adobe.

It's classic, isn't it - no-one here is ever going to forget this piece of Sunday afternoon nonsense. And I am also old, hairy, short and bald into the bargain. But still tolerably slim

Ah, well, if you throw in SHORT & BALD into the equation, then if the guy had said "old, hairy, short, bald & fat" then I would be pissed...I'm not short and while my forehead has grown, I hate being called "bald".

Nothing wrong with being old and hairy, Jeff. But not even the American health reforms will save you from the consequences of obesity.

Provided your heart is okay, can I suggest 2 month's trek in the Himalayas, at least 8 hours every day. This is a most enjoyable way of losing weight. You can partake in your passion for photography at the same time whilst burning off the fat. The combination of altitude sickness and plain food also helps reduce your appetite and contributes towards further weight loss.

You'll soon be so slim and dapper, you'll hardly recognise yourself   .

Well, I'm taking steps to deal with the morbid obesity–literally. (don't ya just love medical terms?)

I workout for 1.5 hrs 3 days a week and walk 1.5-2 miles (30 minutes) for the other 2 weekdays. My problem now seems to be the weekends...I will say my cholesterol is better than Obama's and my blood pressure is well under control.

I added a lot of weight post 2007 when I quit smoking. The goal of this year is to get below where I was when I quit then keep going...

As for the "old" not sure what I can do about that...when it comes to hairy, no way will I EVER not have a beard (too friggin' lazy to shave–plus it hurts) and not having a pony tail isn't an option either...

So...the only thing it looks like I have the power to modify in the "Your fat, old, hairy friend..." phrase is the fat parameter.

Sounds like a good start. Weight lifting is more efficient for weight loss * than cardio, but it's better to do something than nothing. Also, diet is one third of keeping in shape (the last being proper rest), so all sugars should be minimized for starters.

* when people talk about weight loss they usually mean fat weight loss. One can gain weight but look leaner since muscle is more dense than fat.

Geez! This thread is getting out of hand. All this talk about weight loss, cardio and cholesterol is down right depressing. This is not the tone I come here to read about from the Harley rider (that might get "him" going).

Harley? What planet are you from dooode?

I ride a BMW R1200 GS Adventure...This is my new bike. My old 1996 R1100 GS got traded in with 96K miles.

Harley? Really?

Why? The beard?

Heck, even the current Hell's Angles president is riding BMW now...

Now you're making me feel bad - I'm waiting for the weather to get better here so I can pick up my Harley (in red) from the shop.

No facial hair here, overweight is muscle mass and midlife is still several years off

That's a nice BMW, though.

Funny that you say it's in the shop–which when I did have a Harley that's exactly where it spent a lot of time at. I switched to BMW (and the GS in particular) because I could load my computer and some cameras/lenses and go 500-700 miles a day no problem. Ya see, I'm about 1,000 miles from really nice riding and it just takes too long if you only do 250 miles a day like most Harley riders :~)

So, what model is your red one?

Who owned this Harley?

Oh, it was my FLSTS alright...but I didn't put over 3,000 miles on it before I sold it. My 1996 R1100 had 96,000 miles on it when I traded it in last year...
