Hey folks, brilliant idea just now in the loo. How about a 'lets all print with 1 enlarger'? I have a spare light weight beseler 45mcrx if anyone is interested. (Only around 100 kilo)

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH H AAAAARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!

Sorry, had to get that out. This thread is insane! I have no doubt it will continue to spiral out of control, but will be trumped in the next round.

I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Thanks :)

In all seriousness, I've been trying to sell the enlarger mentioned above. Apparently costs $1000+ to package/ship. Ridiculousness!

Check Greyhound Bus package express. They take heavy and bulky objects, and I found their rates to be much better than the other guys.

That's a tenth of the cost! Thank you so much for that. I may have an easier time selling.

Another plus is that the package gets handled fewer times, usually just going point-to-point, so there's not all the rough handling that Fed Ex and UPS are famous for. The only minus for the recipient is that they have to go to the station to pick it up.

I received a couple of PMs from members concerned about the cameras. Perhaps my frustrations showed through too much in the above post. Sorry to anyone who took offense at my tone. I'm really not so pissed off, I assure you.

Can we just have camera check, and have the two people who have the cameras now (Suraj and Nicholai) post here and just let us know that all is okay? No time restrictions and no pressure. We all agreed to these terms: just stay active on the forum when you have the cameras.

Thanks to all.

You're right, Tim. Okay - how do you know?

Hey - if you think yelling, cursing, or threatening will help get the cameras moving, I'm game!

Get Sile on them- if they know what's good for them they won't cross up an Irish woman!

I do speak from experience. :blink:

Geez, if I'd known you were going to get Sile onto the backsliders, I'd have hung onto the camera. :devil:

Now I feel like I have to hang on to it just to have Sile come after me for it. Beat me, hurt me, make me write bad checks baby!

Hey guys, camera 9 has arrived at my house safe and sound. Pretty excited to take part in this :)

edit: And I'm really sorry I did not update you guys sooner, things have been really hectic between work and the start of a new semester. I will try my best to be as efficient as possible with my time shooting this camera!
