    I've been quite taken by some photography I've seen (and purchased) this
    weekend, printed on canvas. I was even able to compare the same photo
    on paper vs canvas. The canvas prints are very impressive - vivid and

    The photographer I spoke to does all his own work, so no help there :)

    I'd like to try this for one or two of my own digital photos. I see
    there are a number of online stores that will do this printing, would be
    interested in your experiences - who's good, and who I should avoid.
    Should I use one of the specialty companies, or can I use someone like

    Any advice is appreciated!

    Doesn't look like they do canvas prints - if you know otherwise do you
    have a url?

    To "do over" someone is to cheat them in some way.

    Thanks, Troy. Too kind.

    Actually, I confess I find this 'Jurgen' stuff hilarious. At least he
    now knows how to spell his name - he started out as 'Juegen'.

    That was just a *side-splittingly* elaborate explanation:
    ??? Yeah, that *would be* what happened....

    Can't wait for the next faux pas.

    Absolutely unbelievable!
    I can't leave you trolls off your lease for a day without you getting your
    juices flowing at the thought I might be on deck in drag.

    When I was kid, all the school yard bullies were fat ugly pigs who seemed to
    think they knew it all. Guess what Piggo? Not only are you a total fuchwit
    but the whole world is privy to the knowledge.

    As for your bum buddy Mark Thomas or is it Charles Stevens? You two deserve
    each other. A pair of total losers imitating humans beings. Get a life

    In case you havent figured it out yet... It's me Douglas St James MacDonald.
    D-Mac. So fare you fuchwits have fingered 4 people you "thought" (as if you
    were capable of the process) were me. How many people are you going to
    target before in dawns on you. I don't need to conceal my identity. If I
    want to play with you lot, I'll just post some photos. Real one, not stuff I
    bought (or stole).

    D-Mac, the only one.

    Used to be in Australia, not any more. Probably still something in my
    system that says Aus though. Not that I mind, obfuscating my location
    isn't necessarily a bad thing :)

    I'd be interested as to how he got an aussie addy from my current emails
    - I used to be there, but have been in the US for some months now.

    G'day Doug. Long time, no read.
    You already tried that. Remember when you posed as Sarina Sarin, female
    fashion photographer?


    It did nothing for me. Especially when you signed off with the wrong
    name. Oops.

    How am I bullying you? Why did you take offence to my posts in this
    thread before you chimed in here? Nothing in there was having a go at
    you. Right? I think you should re-read them and carefully think about
    your answer for a change.
    All I said was that I think he's astute. How does that make us "bum
    buddies" - jeez, I haven't heard that term since primary school.

    At least he can string a sentence together without looking like a gormless
    oaf. Look it up, you'll need to.
    The only people I have "fingered" as being you have either been outed by
    others or you have outed yourself by signing off with "Douglas" instead of
    "Julian", "Sarina", "2Squid" or whatever. Who's the idiot now?
    If you don't need to conceal your identity, and you said above your name
    is "Douglas St James MacDonald", how come you've posted multiple
    "professional" websites here under many variations of those names? You
    know, Douglas St James, Douglas MacDonald, Douglas James etc. Wouldn't it
    be simpler and more honest to use your real name, if you can even remember
    what that is? Maybe it's Douglas James MacDonald? Is it?

    That's not even talking about the ridiculous number of aliases you post on
    USENET with. Jeez, if some of your customers found out what a
    potty-mouthed name-shifting guy you are, they'd have to wonder how you can
    claim to be a "professional" living by this code of ethics you link from
    your website.

    Make sure you snip much of the above in your reply. It'll give you more
    credibility if your reply ignores the facts that make you look silly.

    There you go.
    The notion I might be using several different PCs with different
    owners/users seems to escape you as you do exactly the same thing. Sarina is
    my studio manager. Thanks to you and the other idiotic stalking fuchwits
    from the kindergarten who were stalking me when I used her laptop, she went
    to a moderated forum for her advise. "I made a mistake, I actually thought
    photographers posted there" ...were her words about aus photo. Don't even
    think you can start on my daughter for using my network to post her photos
    of my 65th birthday party. Not even you could be that stupid.

    As far as I know, there is no law or established rule to stop someone name
    shifting as they try avoid trolls and stalker like you and that liar Mark
    Thomas, targeting their posts with nothing in mind but hijacking a thread to
    do a bit of head kicking to stave off the boredom.

    Why do you do that Piggo? Hijack threads for your own entertainment. Say
    what you like about me, apart from defending myself from images thieves,
    stalkers and childish idiots like you, I reply to help people, not steal
    their thunder. If you seriously want to have a go at me, trot on down to
    Wynnum, mate. I'll be only too happy to oblige you. Otherwise, Get the fuch
    out of my hair and stop annoying everyone else with your totally off topic

    You seem to have an issue with anything I do. You criticize me... Actually
    to the point of trying make me look like a fool when it is you, the
    "talented" Expert with all things software who had to ask this old geezer
    how to write some script that stopped you stealing my images, who is the
    real fool.

    In pure Usenet lingo mate...I OWN YOU. The fact you still get your juices
    flowing at the thought of me is hilarious. Bend over mate, I need to see
    this idiot I so clearly own.

    My customers all seem pretty happy with what they get from me. Over 100
    positive EBay feedbacks from people who bought cameras and other gear
    ....including my landscape and seascape canvas enlargements and "shoot &
    burn" weddings might think you were out of your tree... IF the branch didn't
    break with the weight of all that blubber! ROTFL. Not to mention (but I will
    anyway) the wall of letters in my office from satisfied customers, some of
    their comments here: http://www.douglasjames.com.au/recommendations.htm

    Show me where the "potty Mouth" stuff is Fuchwit. Last time I checked
    calling an idiot and idiot was pretty straight forward stuff, even an idiot
    like you ought to be able to grasp that much... Or can't you read either?

    I can't help but wonder what a newly wed bloke is doing up at all hours of
    the night starting fights on Usenet with some old geezer who OWNS YOU. Not
    impotent by any chance are you? A lot of fat people are. Get a life piggo.
    Spend some time dreaming about your wife instead of me.

    Trolling around looking for one of my posts just so you can get your rocks
    off is no way to advance your social development. Something that is clearly
    in need of some corrective adjustments. Targeting innocent people you think
    are me, just because they show some intelligence beyond your recognition is
    going to get you nothing but trouble mate.

    Wow. You actually believe all that?

    If she was in your employ, how do you explain this her not seeming to know

    I know. You'll come up with something.
    You're the one who hijacked this thread, mate. Read back through it.
    How did you help in this thread? You jumped in and had a go at me. You
    weren't defending yourself, I didn't "attack" you.

    I thanked Jurgen for the link. I was on topic. You, on the other hand...
    You have some real anger built up there, mate. Suggest you go get some
    fresh air on your boat this Christmas. Relax.
    I think you should read that email again. I emailed you to help YOU.
    You had a webpage that was some half-assed attempt to stop people from
    saving the images you posted on it. I emailed YOU to TELL YOU it didn't
    work and it was still quite easy to download the images so you didn't feel
    a false sense of security. I WAS TRYING TO HELP YOU. I wasn't asking for
    your help. I even told you in the email how your images were still
    Ieeewwww. Fantasise much?
    How many of those were you posting false feedbacks like the clocks n
    prints one?
    Well your credibility certainly is untainted, so I can imagine those are
    all genuine.

    +-- See that? That's sarcasm.
    OMG, LOL. Quote of the year, I reckon. That's going in the signature.
    Err, again, YOU jumped in here. I wasn't looking for you. You seemed to
    find me, though.
    Wow. Nice rant. Name calling, sexual fantasies, fat jokes, impotence
    jokes, physically threatening, lies, spelling and grammar of a primary
    school kid. It had it all. Thanks for taking the time. Highly

    Anywho... I apologise to any others reading this. I didn't mean to go on
    so long. It's just so hard when he gives so much material.

    Or, you might have actually answered my question, instead of trying to
    hijack the thread further with your own agenda.

    Fine. Now I remember why I left these groups in the first place. Ask a
    simple question, get the thread hijacked in a stupid flamewar.

    Have fun guys, I'm outta here.
