Well I have to report that unfortunately I'll be missing the deadline. Prints will go out in early Sept. Have not been able to get into the darkroom as often as I thought I would.

I'm also running late... My apologies! I made test print in mid July and I've been unable to finalize it...I'll try to get in the darkroom during this long WE! Hopefully the print will be on its way early next week!
Again, sorry for the lateness!
Well I need to say thanks to Nicolas, Dali, received 2 very nice prints. One very geometric, the other almost impressionistic in style, both quite fun.
Heads up Bob Slaughter (megzdad81) yours will be in the mail ma˝ana.

My print is finally on its way... Hopefully this coming Tuesday it should get to destination.
Well, I mailed 2 prints over 9 weeks ago, and privately mailed the recipient twice without acknowledgment. I have probably offended someone, but know not how. I don't know if the prints were received, thrown in the trash or whatnot. This sucks, I'm done.

Sometimes people are funny, it took me a long time to ship my prints from the BPX19 as in only last month did I send them. Well the receiver sent me a PM on LFPF but not here, I did ask that he confirm that I sent them ON HERE so that the guy in charge knew to check me off as complete, but he hasn't done so.

All I want is some kind of acknowledgement and communication but it seems like it's too hard for some people to send a simple message "hey sorry I'm busy but I'll send that print out someday" or even "I hate you and I hate that you ended up being my charge and I don't want to make a print for you" would even be fine ... Or "I'm going to make you wait just as long as you made the other guy wait before sending a print" or "it takes a LONG time to clear customs from my country but it's on it's way" all of that would be fine with me. But silence when you're posting on the forum so I know you got the message is just simply rude. That's the problem with these things, no guarantee.
The first time someone sent me a print I was a little harsh on the critique and the guy obviously was really proud of it and I tore it down a bit, I feel awful about that part. So it could be worse, you could send a print and they could be a jerk about it.
To whoever sent me the BPX18 print, I'm so sorry and I like it much better now that I understand traditional darkroom printing a little more than I did then.
My print will be shipping on Saturday.
I'd like to apologize to the recipient for my lateness nothing as seemed to go right this summer.
