This is sticking my neck out or perhaps someone has been there .... ?
I was just starting to go through the attendees sites and downloading all their pics to my PC.
Plan - then all on to a CD ROM eventually - for storage, slide show or whatever.
O.K. ! What about - next step - any of you out there who want the whole collection could email me and arrange for me to send a copy to you !!??
Of course necessary arrangements duly made. Is it permissable, stupid, illegal, over-ambitious ??
Certainly over-ambitious ! It would keep me off the streets for quite some time. Especially given my dial-up only connection !
There are some beaut pics out there ! They yearn to be together !
What say you ?
Any takers ?
Talk about Crazy John's mobiles. Crazier Laurie's Melb Pics !!
As I said maybe someone has already done it ? Speak up please.
I would certainly be in happy reciept of your hard work.
As well as more than happy in helping in the copying or mailing.
Thank you indeed.
Heya Laurie :o) I for one was very happy to meet up with you, ....and what a ball we all had!! I would love to help out. I have already made a cd slideshow of my pix and I would be happy to send it to you. Can you please email me your address? ...and in turn, I would be only too happy to receive a cd from you :o) Hugs, Ann.
Great idea Laurie, but aren't we supposed to be able to do it under the past meetings gallery?
I would love one, but don't be too hasty, I still haven't put all mine up and a few others haven't either.
Only Anne12 (or the original poster of the meetings notice) can put photos up.
I am getting quite a collection of Melb fotos together Laurie. Already in receipt of 3 cds from friends, so could put together a cd/dvd. Don't want to steal your thunder tho. I am doing a cd for eMom as she lost her camera.
Emailing all those photos is a big job.
maybe we can collaborate?
Thanks Tina. There had to be a loophole ! I wasn't aware of the 'past meetings' gallery. That is virtually what was in my mind. I must check it out.
And Rose thank you for your offer; we'll sit tight till we suss out Tina's news.
There is so much to learn and so little time ! Who said that ?? :-)
Photos on vt are not good enough to download and make photos from. so circulating a cd makes that a better option. Of course we'd have to get everyones ok to do this.
ONe thing too, is that while a slideshow is great. not everyone can extract the photos from it. Just adding photos as files, is more plain for getting prints done, and members can easily watch them as a slideshow merely using Windows XP.
Good one Pam. Steal as much 'thunder' as you like. We just need to pull it all together. With the CD ROM of course it's available off-line. OK.
Yes Pam with the quality aspect one can go on and on. One has to stop somewhere. It's like a HI-Fi sound system - somewhere you draw a line of satisfaction.
Anyway let's put it away for tonight and see what the 'morrow brings.
Goodnight all and thank you . !
Gnite Laurie :-)
Where's the past meetings gallery? I could pop London ones on there.
If you go to the Meetings and Events page, it's at the top in the coloured box.
Thank you kindly teepee :)
You're most welcome.
TeePee hahahahahahahha. :-)))
ROLFHARRIS so much i'm nearly p-ing hahahaha ;-)
what a fantastic idea...I will be keeping an eye on this to see what happens
"The Next Day ..." Right. How about this ? Following the line of Ann (aussierose), those who want to take part send to me their pics on a CD ROM and then make a small entry in here to that effect. There will be a'cut-off' date when I will then compile them and start returning the results !!?? I'm still not properly awake but I can't see many holes in that concept ??
Now, I haven't seen this before and I hope I'm not breaking any cardinal rules, but here comes my address for your sending. Laurie Edward. F5/39 Mary St. Hawthorn. Vic. 3122 (Australia ) ! That can also be used for any snailmail fan letters !! LOL
I'll have to get a bigger letterbox and also warn the postie !
Back to the quality angle. We are dealing with .jpg, I presume, right through the project. I think we would have to standardise that, yes/no ?? Your CD ROM would be as the material comes from you with any cropping etc done by you - converted to jpg. Does that make sense ?
Could each of you spread the word to your appropriate friends.
It's a sort of Regional United VT Nations Project. :-)) Make an acronym out of that one - if you're game!!
That's all folks at this early stage.
Ok then, I'll not pass on any photos but my own, so those who mailed me CD's i'll let you pass on to Laurie yourself.
that way I won't get my knuckles knocked. :-))
"....Your CD ROM would be as the material comes from you with any cropping etc done by you - converted to jpg. "
That is your CD ROM which you send to me - not the one I'm sending you.
The thought comes to me that in your sending you include a stamped, self-adressed packing and CD. Yes ??
As usual, Pam, right on the ball !
Did your beaut Mum really lose her camera ? What rotten luck. It happens often. Not lost as in stolen !??!!
Not my Mum, it was Stephanie who lost her camera. I'm compiling a cd of photos for her .
Oh Stephanie from Head Office !!?? Bad luck - but you make up for that.
OK logging off to finish my brekky ! Thanks everyone. Good luck to us all !
Wonderful idea..and I'd like a copy of the cd please.~
Hi Zana. Now this is a twist !? Are you considering visiting us and want a sampling of what to expect ?? :-)
I can only presume that you are genuine - why would I think that you would be
other than that ? It's a nice gesture.
We haven't settled on a 'cut-off' date yet but I would expect something in the order of 10 to 14 days from now. ?? It could be much (?) longer - it depends on attendee member response. But not to let things cool off too much !!
Then the work starts here - to compile and burn each person's CD ROM and then return post. Local - Melbourne - VT members' offers of help will be taken up.
This entry is going up here rather than an email to you in case anyone else is interested in the way you are, not having been at the Meet here !?
We might leave it just now for the 'dust to settle'. Browse back through this forum postings.
Are we pushing the VT boundaries a bit ?? Who knows ? - Pam ??
Zana is a good mate of mine Laurie. She deserves a copy :o) ..and who knows? it might prompt her to come downunder for our next big one in 2007 in Perth!! Hugs :o)
We want to make sure that all attendees know of what is going on here !
Following are the Member names of all who were on the 'final' list. I am aware that there were some who weren't able to make it.
I don't know if we can do one multiple email to them all ?
Then each one respond that they know by entering their name in an individual post here. And I can then tick them off my list !
I'll wait for Pam to respond to this and she might just volunteer for the job.
It's called delegating (Unloading !).
I think I've spelt them correctly. They don't make speling sense.!?
