Back in '77 I worked with Steve Bourne on /bin/sh (little known fact: like awk, sh was named for its inventors, 'S' for Steve and 'H' for Humbert) and was responsible for the 'done' keyword. Following that I alternately pursued computer programming, field anthropology, and general philology; I currently work for an organization that has no name in the field of complex system obfuscation.

comment How do I get proper focus when photographing lightning strikes?
My vote goes for sensor bleed. Lightning is far brighter than the sensor maximum for just about any sensor, aperture and exposure. A neutral density filter might help.

comment Why am I allowed to turn my focusing ring beyond infinity?
This question seems nonsensical as focused beyond hyperfocal seems self-contradictory. Can you elaborate?
