    I would assume that you will get as many cards as are on your match list. So everyone who will receive a card from you will also send a card to you. At least that is my understanding of Nigels matching algorithm.

    I printed my cards yesterday and labeled them today. Tomorrow one of those cards will be on its way to your mailbox. Let's see how long a card needs from Germany to the US.

    yep, all things being equal*, you should get a card from everyone on your list.

    * factors include :
    matching was accurate
    postal system doesn't loose them
    mailman doesn't take a fancy to one and souvenir
    we have no deadbeats

    I printed the last 11 of mine and they will go in the mail on my drive to work in the morning. Oh, yeah, wonder of wonders, I remembered to *sign* these!

    The balance of mine went out today and I received my first one for this round, from Tom Kershaw, quite nice.

    Although I'm having an interesting time, working out if there is a particular way it should be viewed!

    I got my first card today, a really nice print of Bok Tower. Based on the post office stamp I assume it is from Randall. Thanks very much, I really like it!
    Which APUG User ID are you? Nige, could you maybe provide a list of the APUG names to match the list of human names you sent out?
    Cheers,
    Hal

    Hi Hal,

    the last column of the address list sent out by Nigel contains the APUG user name.

    And BTW: Thanks for the 'Berlin look through'. I do not know if this was your intension, but if this is in Berlin, then it reminds me somehow to the German government. The different meanings of the German word 'Durchblick' came immediately into my mind. Unfortunately this word play does not translate well into English.

    Regards
