The lurking Jay asked:
On another subject; excuse the ignorance, what is a FANG?  I gather an
incredible buy, is it an acronym or is it named after someone (Phyllis
Diller's husband)?

Well, I don't think anyone here has ever seen her so we don't know if 
Doris Fang looks anything like Phyllis Diller or, heaver forbid, her 
poor husband Fang.

Doris Fang was a member of the list from somewhere in Florida (I don't 
recall exactly where) who used to prowl all the garage sales early in 
the morning.  She would frequently report finding the most incredible 
deals and cause us all to be instantly envious.  She was the proof that 
the early bird got the Zuiko.

In any event it didn't take too long for Doris's  (did I get that right, 
Piers?) great deals to be termed Fangs.  Now, by extension to the other 
members of the list a great deal on a piece of gear is also termed a Fang.

I'm sure many who are reading this are wondering (as I am) what ever 
happened to Doris.  She had been a fairly frequent contributor who 
simply disappeared without saying goodbye.  I hope she's still well.
