I was about to google LOM when "dark room" popped into my head, and at my age, every time I get an idea, something else goes flying out of my head.

Some years ago, cannot remember when (craft) I was having trouble with A B C DD etc so devised my own scale based on the horse measurement.

One hand, two hands and WaHey y'bugger man.

Jeff,
You just reminded me that I had not mentioned an "A" button in that list of enhanced sizes.
That was, primarily, due to the fact that Mike had placed the "A" button in the appropriate section; the downsized, email web size copies!

Sorry about my mis-'handling' of the information.

No matter what level of automation we achieve, there will always be a place (such as a dark room) for "hands-on" craftsmanship.  Such work can be rewarding...even stimulating...providing a release from the tensions of modern life, assuming that one has the basic skills which will allow him to rise to the occasion and fulfill the demands of the craft he practices.

Owen,
I think the jury is out on your premise.
When I met my wife, I was working in the Photo Finishing industry in NYC. 
I walked up to her and said, "Excuse me! My name is Fred. You look really pretty. Let's step into my Darkroom, and we can see what develops".

Now things are so much more advanced, more sophisticated, more learned, on a much higher plane.
Now they send their fake avatars around. You see a pretty gal on your i droid or blueberry, and you text, "WHADDUUUPPP!
You send your picture, not of your face, but of your stomach muscles.
She types to your stomach 6-pak, Wanna live together as Friends with Benefits? Major stipulation though!  Toilet seat must be down when finished in bathroom.

"Well I have a stipulation too, ya know. Will you drink beer from a can that does not have that extra air vented pouring hole?"
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

The next text says, "GOTTA GO!"

Owen, I really wonder about the continuation of growth in the new versions of software.

Someday there will be an app for that.  See Frederik Pohl, "Day Million."
