Chris -- it's easily found if one knows where to look... ;-)
Just a little FYI for everyone in the exchange. My address is correct at the moment, but I'm warning you know that I will be moving to Japan in late March. I will let people know my new address once I have it (for the cards I will not have received at that time); however, my parents will continue to collect cards at this address for me.
Looking forward to this new round!

Yeah! Finally... After being quite excited for the last few months, all my cards are going in the mail today! I feel like a little kid.. maybe I am.

I get to go into the darkroom today! My enlarger lamps should arrive by noon. I have to go dress shopping with Mary (she is an opera singer and has a recital). But by this evening I will be free to print!!! I will probably just get my image picked out for the exchange but I should be able to get some printed! I just love this exchange! So much fun to see where all the wonderful prints come from. Thanks to all who participate!

I setup everything yesterday, with the idea to spend my today's evening in the darkroom. But this morning I woke up pretty sick (I knew that tasting my new Bromophen brew was a bad idea :D ).

That's a good tip Patrick.

WoooHooo! I got all my postcards printed! I'll get them out next week on payday (Friday). I just exposed them all, putting them in the paper safe (how did I live without that for a year!) then did them 4 at a time. It took 3 hours!

Lori I do something similar. I have an empty box for postcard paper. I expose 10-12 at a time and put the exposed ones in the box. Once a batch is exposed, I then run them through the chemicals. As long as I don't flip on the white light during the process, everything seems to be fine.

That's a good tip Patrick.
Just woke up from a 2 days sleep. Started to feel better. My Bessa 1 is calling me to go outside... I will probaly play in the dark with my cards this week.

Hi to everyone on my list - address correction has been sent.
Hopefully it has beaten those of you with quick enlargers!! :D

All printed. I exposed all 50 odd at once, had to take a rest halfway thru the dev'ing as I ran out of drying space :D

I've been printing for a club show'n'tell night so have been making ~5 5x7s in addition to each 12x16 as I go. 20 down now, should be finished the 50ish next week. I hope all y'all like seeing Cambodia!

Got my first card for round #19, arrived yesterday from mooseontheloose. Another awesome HIE shot of an angel. Very fitting subject for infrared. Thanks!!!

Roger -- that was really fast! I only mailed the cards on Friday... I'm happy to hear (I think) that it made it there alright -- I printed all my cards on Fujibro paper, but it's thinner than the regular postcard stock and I wasn't sure if it would withstand the rigors of the postal system.

Rachelle, Came through with flying colors, or at least flying black and whites. :)
