    Just saw that the GPS software is only for PC.... how do we manage it if we got only a Mac....?

    @vicuna & hailkingstewie: Does parallel desktop/vm fusion works? or even boot camp?

    So, starting tomorrow, as soon as we get the camera, we can use it? And then by August 5th we need to have it postmarked and in the mail? Even if we don't get it tomorrow, but 5 days from now? And then, all our stuff needs to be submitted by the 12th? Just clarifying...there have been so many rule changes that I want to make sure I'm understanding all of them.

    I'm a little confused as strangelilgirl. so the week 1 just ended today, and week 2 is starting tomorrow? so that means the longer it takes for the post office to deliver the camera, the less time we are going to have, correct? that's gonna interfere a lot with my plan:( and doesn't seem to be very fair....

  11. mephisto19
    mephisto19 ·

    started shooting for the mission... yeah....

  12. kazarareta
    kazarareta ·

    @strangelilgirl: yep, you're dead-on on the instructions :)
    @sugiyamasatomi: we're still following the current 2-week rule, 1 extra week for uploading/sending locations as of this writing. we are still discussing internally on whether we could still extend the date. sorry about that!
    @everyone on a mac: for the meantime, would it be possible to upload the GPS data via a friend's laptop or café PC? we apologize that we didn't see this issue coming up earlier.

    with regard to PC - i have no PC friends, and the local library and internet cafe won't let me install the software. Hopefully the next person can pass on my GPS info (as well as callums as he didnt remove his and he has a PC!)

    For people with a Mac, if you have Parallels you can run windows on mac and it works fine to transfer the data.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    First Impressions of the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens: Cat Ong

    Lomography's Optics Head Cat Ong shot moving lights, shadows and distant views to test the optic capacities of the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens 2.8/32M. Though drawn to precise zone focusing and aperture values, he tried to be more intuitive while walking around town with the Minitar-1 Art Lens. He took incredibly detailed photos under the Hong Kong sun and through the haze of Vienna.
