Thank you, canaan for the ... er, gentle reminder.

Yes ... everybody won. But between that and my limited Net time, that made it complicated for me to announce The Official Plan. But my arse is finally in gear. So here it is.

IAN ... gets the DVDs first; his share the wealth plan might not have had the panache some of your more creative pleas had. But it made a lot of sense. Ian, I'll mail the DVDS to you this week.

So here's the deal. Everybody who asked will get on the list to view the DVDs, and I'll post the send order below. The first six after Ian I chose for creativity, charm & all those other things I first proposed to judge on. After that, the list goes in chronological order (based on when you made a request). I did bump azcoyote forward a bit because her original post went into the ether.

Will everybody please promise to keep the DVDs for no more than two weeks, then send them onward to the next person? Outlaw's honor?

Anyhow, here goes. The first person on the list sends to the second, the second to the third, etc. If you don't want to give your address to a certain person, well ... figure something out.

1. Ian
2. Velojym (who cheated with the pic of Zoe; hey, cheating works some times, just ask any politician)
3. Heartless (who cleverly appealed to my writerly vanity; and really, that was funny)
4. Dull'Hawk (because we need to save the world from him)
5. canaan (because the cat threat is so truly dire)
6. Jac (because of course we must do something FOR THE CHILDREN)
7. Kel (because movies MUST have popcorn!)

Then in chronological order of request:

8. Simon Jester
9. Thunder (who almost got bumped higher; that cat threat is really serious)
10. cowardly lion
11. azcoyote
12. Swami Rabbitima
13. saltydog
14. Pagan
15. Henshawe
16. Kramjam
17. motherbatherick
18. Redmist
19. A Nonny Mouse
20. Roy J. Tellason
21. feralfae
22. Leonidas
23. gooch

If I missed anybody, please speak up!

It'll be interesting to see if the DVDs make it to everyone on the list and don't get stuck endlessly on someone's desk. That would really show that there is truly honor among Outlaws. Remember: Two weeks, then send them onward, please.

7. freetraveler


You can drop me off the list for now. We're leaving Florida 6/29, with visits to Michigan and Kentucky before we go to Oregon 8/8 to pick up our 5er... then we have 5 months to get back to Florida for a visit, so getting a package to us will be a little tough.  Thanks for the offer anyway!

Okay ... DVDs are now officially in the mail to Ian.

Also, I amended the recipient list. Dropped freetraveler (enjoy your trip, friend). That actually worked out well because yesterday I had unintentionally dropped kel from near the top of the recipients' list. ACK. That was a particularly unfortunate screwup, since kel once did something very nice for me. (The cats must have made me do it.)

Anyhow, all fixed now and my apologies to kel.

A SUGGESTION:  As soon as you receive the DVDs, contact the next person on the list and get their address. This should help avoid any delays in sending the movies onward, and will also alert people to who's got the films now and when they're likely to recieve them.

I have an older camera that just got replaced.  I'll check the model and stuff to post it when I get home.  If you still need one, I'll send it out for nothing or shipping.

Update: I have an Olympus D-550.  3 Megapixels with a 16 MB SmartMedia Card.  I have no idea how much this will be to ship, but if you want it, I'll send it.  Roy, if you are looking to tinker, I have another camera that was dropped and doesn't take/store pictures anymore.

I've been idly looking around for a standard film camera, and I'm seeing quite a bit of digital stuff on Craigslist, in the $50-$150 range. Yo might check it out, I've seen some down in the $30 range for the cheaper models...

I wasn't,  really,  as I haven't done much with cameras at all,  though that's gotta be better than the one I have sitting here that was saturated with water...

Maybe that other one if it's available.  My interest at this point is getting some pix of stuff to stick on the web,  so my requirements are pretty modest.  We'll see what works out...

Are you looking for a 35 mm?

Roy,
I guess Claire may have first dibbs since she started the thread, but if we don't hear from her (don't know how often she is checking in these days) I'll see what i can do to get it to you.

Cool.  Email is probably best,  since I'm not checking in here as often as I used to,  all sorts of things taking up my time these days...
