So--until or unless somebody figures out the changes to newer model cameras--I have a concern that CHDK may have already hit the end of the road and may be very difficult to port to any new models of Canon cameras (A590 and those yet to come out).
Also, CHDK has been sliding under the "Canon Radar" for the moment... If CHDK starts to involve money--then they will simply lock up any new models and prevent CHDK from being ported to new cameras--and it dies anyway.
Hi adcz.To the php programmer:I think it is a great idea to build that site and I'm glad that you offer your knowledge and time for it. Is it possible to host it in a free server? (at least at the begining). I know they are very limited regarding php commands etc but it would solve the "money" issue. If not possible, I suggest 50 of us donate $1 and you set up the server. We just need to find other 49 brave souls willing to risk the dollar in case you dissapear with the bounty.To the capitalist:IMHO, CHDK needs no money (maybe, and just maybe hosting expenses but I could easily be wrong). I believe you, you want to help, but the purpose of the capitalist model is not "to help comunities" but "to make money". Ubuntu is there to make a profit, not to help linux grow.Let me tell you a story that reflects my conception of CHDK:The rich industrialist from the North was horrified to find the Southern fisherman lying lazily beside his boat, smoking a pipe."Why aren't you out fishing?" said the industrialist."Because I have caught enough fish for the day," said the fisherman."Why don't you catch some more?""What would I do with it?""You could earn more money" was the reply. "With that you could have a motor fixed to your boat and go into deeper waters and catch more fish."Then you would make enough to buy nylon nets. These would bring you more fish and more money. Soon you would have enough money to own two boats . . . maybe even a fleet of boats. The you would be a rich man like me.""What would I do then?""The you could really enjoy life.""What do you think I am doing right now?" Which would you rather have: a fortune or a capacity for enjoyment?
thread opener: if you knew this was already being discussed there was no need for a new thread and at the wrong place. cheers
