    You could always answer that you’re sorry, but you don’t know how to translate its name from Klingon.

    Hello:

     

    Once a person asked me if I was testing water quality (at the edge of Cape Cod Bay 20 ft above the waterline).     Go figure or beat that! 

     

    Best wishes and Holiday Joy to all.

     


    Bruce

    In my experience in the past few years, to non-technical people they are all "funny-looking cameras". :)
