The question is if Dave will be there to let us in. I spent once almost an hour watching some DVD of my daughter in the car waiting because I was too excited and showed up a little too early... :D

I uploaded 180 photos to the Flickr:

I had to resize them to meet the upload quota. Still ~1600x1200 which will make good wallpapers but for printouts I will bring the original files to the next meeting on a DVD so if anybody wants some bring memory sticks with you.

There are some keepers but we definitely have to do this again so we can fix the ones I screwed up ;) - I did not realize how shallow the depth of field was when we did the closeups of the cars so on some of those not the entire car is in focus :(. Anyway I hope you guys will enjoy them don't hesitate to add comments in the flickr set.
John, I don't know how did you get away from me... I will hunt you down next time...

Pictures look so good!

But WOW I looked like hell :o
need more sleep lol

Awesome pics cvt! I wish you would have uploaded them to the Gallery here though...that way I could have deleted the ones w/ me in! In addition to missing Swider, there's none of you! :p Also, we need to add a disclaimer that the mayhem people see in the background is due to the fact that we literally just finished moving over to that building a few hours earlier - which Paulie and I can also use as an excuse - we had been at the Dojo for probably 14+ hours when those were taken, most of that time spent doing heavy lifting! :D Other than that one which I knew you took and am going to beat you for posting, I was surprised by a lot of the other ones, I hadn't noticed that you were taking pictures all of the time. Is there anyone who doesn't have a car pic yet - we need to do a HFAY Season 4 gallery/poster/something!? Cool!

Unrelated, there are still a few people who haven't paid for their 900s, please please please make sure that this happens before the weekend is over or I will seriously be quite upset. :rolleyes: :confused: If you're unsure about some other item etc., don't worry about it, but do make sure you get your 900s taken care of today at the latest please. :cool:
