    Participants must swear an oath in blood that they will not hang on to the camera for more than 5 days. We all lead busy lives, but sticking it in your closet for 5 months is inexcusable.

    I had a thought. Doesn't have much to do with this, just thought I'd throw it out there...

    Swap the first two letters in NICEST to get INCEST.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    The following from Fred is a pretty damning sign that we have all spiralled into complete and utter madness..

    Signor Banana... I like how you think... perhaps the subject matter of the photo could be the aftermath of said blood oath?

    Oh and Fred before you descended into complete and utter insanity you had a good point.. the recipient doesn't get the address until they PM upon receipt of the camera..

    If you saw a man drowning and you could either save him or photograph the event...what kind of film would you use?

    Some might call me overly anally retentive, but ..

    I made a point of confirming Lisa's address by pm before I sent the camera on to her. So I would recommend that that be made part of the expected routine.

    After 20+ years of sending important documents and correspondence (in my day job), I never trust an address unless I've evidence it is correct and current.

    Sometimes I get the most amazing looks from staff .

    I've been in touch with my old colleagues to see if the camera had actually arrived in Hartington, and so far it hasn't.

    I've contacted all possible parties here that could have laid hands on the North American camera. No luck here either.

    We'll call the PO again about the case on Monday, but I have very little hope that the folks in India, who apparently outsourced by the USPS, on the other line really do anything at all with these cases.

    ... especially if you spoke with a man who says his name is Peggy.
