comment Will an SSD provide a noticeable benefit for Lightroom over a traditional harddrive?
Measurable: almost certainly yes. But noticeable to you, the user, is what I assume you're really after. I took the liberty of editing, but if you really are asking about measurableness, please revert.

comment Where does the ¹/shutter speed = focal length rule for hand shake come from?
This isn't coherent enough to be an answer, but I'd assume two key factors are: (a) it's very simple and thus easily expressed, i.e., there is a bias towards 1/shutter rather than 2/shutter or 0.5/shutter; (b) it includes a factor based on the "shakiness" of an average hand. If people were steadier or sloppier, the rule would be different.

comment Is it possible and/or a good idea to print digital photos to slides?
Looks like there are similar services in the USA; a search for "digital slide" reveals several options. Prices seem to vary from about $1.50 to $3.50 per slide depending on vendor and quantity.

@rfusca, I'd assume this is a lab job, but either is fine by me. Edited to clarify.

comment What should I do about Nikon D90 intermittent shutter release failure?
FWIW, when I have anxiety dreams, they frequently involve recalcitrant shutters. :)

comment Why are only certain shutter speeds or apertures available?
@rumtscho, it's a reasonable question; why the snark?

comment What is the most unusual household item you've found useful in a photographic context?
Put me on the side of "on-topic". It's clearly useful for photographers. Let's not be lawyers about this stuff.

comment Attending a concert: what non-professional equipment will I be able to get in?
+1 for "in writing". Assurances over the phone are worth the paper they're written on.
