Hey Nige,
I didn't reply earlier because I didn't think that I would be able to pull off 35+ cards, but I think that I've become addicted, so please sign me up for this round!
Thanks,
Todd

Nige,

Thanks for putting the work into getting the mailing the list in the label format. Very handy, especially given that my handwriting is barely legible.

Mine will be trickling into the postal system starting next week...

Thanks to the label format I have just finished doing round 7, many thanks Nige.

I did the prints (48) on Monday evening, took me one hour and ten minutes.

This evening (Saturday) I printed out the labels and also printed out my commentary in a label format, stuck both on, took about one hour from start to finish.

The Australian recipients should receive theirs Tuesday onwards as I'm posting Sunday. The international ones should be posted on Monday after a visit to the Post Office.

It's amazing how quickly one can do this if you get organised and you run a conventional B&W process. Leaves me with time to ponder the next neg for the next round.

Mick.

Mick! trying to make us feel bad?

Yes, once you get your exposure sorted, you can pump them out!

If you think that makes you feel bad, I have just been in the darkroom selecting the neg for the next round!

I'm with Dave on this one! I haven't even developed all my negs from China let alone pick one for printing!

My wife and I just got up from the darkroom printing our batch of postcards. Even with doing a one stop burn on one corner it went really fast with me printing and Dale tending the developer. That old continuous belt Beseler dryer sure comes in handy for this work.

I picked out a slide yesterday - a very different image than one sees here. Not artistic, more documentary. I shot that pic when I was in university. I'll be doing this one fully traditional - making a colour internegative and printing from that.

It's a nostalgic pic because I miss 'real' engineering and I miss shooting Kodachrome. Postcards should be out next week.

Regards, Art.

I found out just how hard it is to get MSWord to do a mailmerge and get everything where it belongs. MY GOD that program must have been designed by idiots. It took me longer to put the addresses on the cards than to print them in the darkroom. No wonder so many people harp about Microsoft programs, theres little logic in the way the modules in this one hang together.

whew, I did it. I spent more than 3 hours in the dark to do the printing. THe postcards are going to be out in a couple of days. Need to do some spoting first. :(

I've bought some more postcard paper, and I think I have shot an image which will work. For me, that's good. Hey, it's only June 5th. ;)

Hey, it's only June 5th. ;)

But it's only 4 days until the World Cup starts when all my printing will be put on hold -- at least until England get knocked out in the 2nd round :(

Well, I got Micks today! What a great pic it is too... but you'll have to wait a few more days for it to wing it's way to most of you!
