Hi,
Came in late, I like the idea, any vacancies in the second round?
If not can you put me down for the next round?
Regards

Where is the original camera now? The last I heard, on 21 December, was that it is on the way to Dave Swinnard. It shouldn't take 20 days per person.

... and to think I sent it by international priority mail to speed things up! :rolleyes:

There were two cameras as the original one got lost in the mail for four months between BW Girl and myself and then after the second one came to me and went, the original one showed up at my house. I emailed Gary at that time and he told me to hold on to it for a while. I was clearing out my house recently and I didn't want to lose the camera so I emailed Gary to see what I should do with it and we decided to send it on.

I have just pm'd everyone about the updated list. John Bartley replied and the link didn't work for him. So here is the link to that thread

"Updated List" (http://www.apug.org/forums/showthread.php?p=243595#post243595)

Any questions don't hesitate to pm or email me.

Just sent the camera on to tomtom via USPS Priority Mail. 4-year old son and I were at the empty post office at midnight using the automated kiosk to send it, and it didn't present delivery confirmation or tracking as an option, but it estimated 2-3 days delivery.

Hopefully, what I lack in timeliness I've made up for in accuracy of my updates to the delivery list and multiple-layers of hermetically sealed packaging. As requested, I've penciled the inserts and deletions onto the original copy, and I've also included a copy of ggriffi's E-Mail to me with the changes as well as the updated list linked to in the previous post for reference.

As long as it takes these cameras to make full circuits, I'm wondering if this shouldn't just be a perpetual activity, with a new camera fired off into the ether every other month to whatever the current participation list happens to be. That way, eventually, there will be new picture each month or two to post from some camera that was started the previous year, generation, etc.

Ok - I now have a camera that Dave Swinnard sent to me. It arrived on my front doorstep sometime today, courtesy of Canada Post. I need to have two things happen to take my picture :

1) I have to figure out how to use it :)

and

2) I need some sunshine - predicted for about Friday? which gives me three days to learn how to use it - "should" be enough time :)

cheers

ps : perpetual camera ? count me in eh?

take care,
tomtomA quick lookup at usps.com with the tracking number returns "item was delivered at 10:28 am on February 10, 2006". Any update? Do not mean to rush you, just curious.

Anybody care to tell me how many more to go - I am too lazy to look for the list again. :p

All,

As per my understanding, the last we heard of the "replacement" camera was when it was with John, on Jan 31, 2006.

Ok - I now have a camera that Dave Swinnard sent to me. It arrived on my front doorstep sometime today, courtesy of Canada Post. I need to have two things happen to take my picture :

I got a PM from John Bartley that Snapper was not replying to his PMs, so he would send the camera to me. I did not receive the camera as of today.

M.I am a bit confused now :confused: (thought I finally had this figured out). The camera that John Bartley has is the replacement for the original camera that was temporarily lost in transit. As per the list, he is supposed to ship it to John Suckling in the UK. So I am not sure why he was trying to PM Snapper. (This is the camera that has already passed through me, if that helps.)

Maybe John (Bartley) can shed some light on this?

The "original" camera, that was temporarily lost in transit but later resurfaced, has been sent out and was last with tomtom. This camera has a few stops to make before it gets to John Bartley, and it has NOT passed through me yet. Another way to help clear the confusion is to note that the "original" camera is lagging behind the replacement camera because it was MIA for a while.

Hope I have not created anymore confusion.
