I'm doing a story on the updates to the Alien Bee 800 ring light (which really are worth discussing) and the new "Moon Unit" light modifier, but I want include a link to the original story I wrote. The post was pretty popular (a couple of thousand page views, I believe), but I don't seem to be able to find it using the regular search function. I believe the original post would have been fairly recent (around the 12th of October, 2006), and if any of you forum techno experts could find the link for me, I would appreciate it.

PS: The pictures of me shooting on location using the ABR800 here in South Beach were taken by Bill Cooke ( http://www.miamiphotojournalist.com ).

Wow, I remember that thread! That was a nice informative piece you wrote. I tried to help by searching all threads where you have posted. Lots before October and lots after but not that thread. Where could it have gone???

Hey man,
Kind of a side note and I don't want to hijack the thread but how are you feeling? I never heard how it came out?

Here is a link to one thread you started about your lighting equipment

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/main-...tml#post222614

I didn't see anything else in that time frame. You can find all posts you started just by going to your profile and scrolling down to the area where it mentions posts. Here is a link to all of the posts you've started on G1:

http://www.glamour1.com/forums/searc...g_searchinfo=1

If this doesn't help, then give me some of the keywords that you think were in the post and I'll try another method.

Cheers,
rfs

I know some of you have looked (email and private messages), but it is a mystery why the original post disappeared. I could link to any of a number of sites that picked up the original post, but I put up here first and I thought it would be nice to keep the link to Glamour 1. Anyone have any ideas what might have happened to the original post (I believe it was titled "A Ring(ing) Endorsement").

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

PS: And thanks to those who asked. The Doc measured my blood pressure at 100 over 70 and my pulse rate at 68 today, the bad news is that I will apparently have to pay my rent here in South Beach for another 20 years. Bill and Dave have stopped checking my front door for flies, no one gets the camera equipment without a fight.

Fish,

First, good to hear things are better, besides the rent. Not sure what happened to your post, I'm packing for Portland for some book work and a workshop, but if you can give me the post number, I'll try and see if it's in our database as a back-up, not sure if our back-ups go that far, but I'd look with our provider.

While it's no secret I'm no fan of the AB's or WL's, not because of the product itself, but because of their advertising, it's great to see you're having success with them. Wishing you the best, rg sends!

Don't worry about it, Hoss. Fortunately I write all of my posts using my email program (so I can run spell check), and then save them in a drafts folder. The post about the Alien Bees seems to be the only one missing, so rather than put you through a lot of effort I'll just repost the original and then link to it from my new post on the wonderful improvements to the ABR800 Alien Bee ring flash.

Thanks again for checking, Rolando. I'm sure it was just a strange one of a kind glitch in the software since even R Fredrick Smith couldn't find the original post. Have a great trip!

The ever helpful Fish

Jeez! That Moon Unit thing is big! Maybe they should just make one even bigger-- One that you could wear and walk around in with your camera? BTW, why do they call it a Moon Unit? Is that some kind of nod, wink, or homage to Frank Zappa's kid?

The light the moon unit puts out is amazing... reminds me a lot of the Octobox by Elinchrome.

The big issuse is heat.

Had one in the studio 2 weeks ago. 1/2 an hour into the session and the internals were melting and the whole unit stopped working. I felt sorry for the photographer, it was his first time using the ring.
