    @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....

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

    @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.
