ok. This is on topic. I've got a new (ish) Dell lappy running windows 7. I have some stuff to put up for auction/sale, but when I insert the camera SD card with pics the computer does not show an icon for the SD card. I can't figure out how to access the SD card and download the photos to the hard drive.

Help.

Edit: Finding 7 pretty hard to understand as opposed to Vista in general; I'm not an IT guy.

Ok so, I got my first donation of 30$. By Jon Beck Thanks Jon!!! I won't post your name here unless you want me to, shoot me a pm. So here is the deal.

5 bucks gets you a wall paper of your choice and size. (Max 1600x800)
30 bucks gets you one 6x9 print with no watermark
50 for two.
75 for four.
100 for six.

If you want bigger ones, I can do large panos ect, I'll have to find out pricing for prints and price accordingly.

Eventually I'll set up a webpage, but for now I have my Flickr page with over 1500 images that I have posted here on supertopo.

It's here http://www.flickr.com/photos/63748573@N07/

Ill try and organize it into sets a bit better, but for now you can try and remember when I posted it and go back to that date, or if you're having trouble finding a certain image, shoot me an email!

Once you figure it out, let me know via email.

It will take me awhile to get them printed and sent off, once I get my hands on my originals again which are at home in whistler.

Thanks alot for all your help!!!

All right... here's what I can do.

Send Mike $40 and you get a free night at a SushiFest of your choice....

Also send me $30 for your second night (so this is limited to those buying in for two nights).

In fact.... I'll do this three times.... One spot for each SushiFest this year (or next year - but only one per event).

And yes... SushiFest is normally $30... so... if you're in for two nights for the one in 5 weeks you can empty your wallet even further and finish reserving your spot. /end cheap shot

and for you Mike if/when we do City of rocks you're covered (I'm covering like 7 broke(n) climbers this event [or close to it ;-])

checking out my thread won't yield any CoR info. I considered it this year but two Creek fests (there's one in the fall as well) and a woo fest will be enough. Plus Bob D' is doing a Penitente anchor replacement and I'll probably schlep sushi down for that in June.

I can offer up this, a limited edition print of a water color I did back in the eighties. This should be snapped up without hesitation by anyone who has staggered up the Bravo route on Waddington or who has climbed any of the magnificent granite buttresses pictured.

I figure starting at 40 bucks (unframed) and whoever doubles that amount I'll throw in another print gratis for Big Mike and Sandras place. If you triple it I'll eat my hat . Quadruple it and I might think about returning to starving artist for a career path.

Holy crap. Now i gotta figure something out. I couldn't think of a better deserving person right now than you, Mike. I'm trying to find the time to come up and see you and bring some of my magical Duck Soup and some climbing mags. I could even give you some cash, but I want to do it in person. We got your back here, on more levels than you could imagine.

Peace Out, Breddah.

A NOTE ON AUCTION BIDS & DONATION OFFERS:

I'd prefer a transparent process.

If you put up an item for bid , please check in daily to see if people have bid on your item. Provide a time line for your bidders so they know when the bidding has ended.

Please also make a post saying who won the bid.

After the bids are closed and a winner declared, the two people involved need to PM one another to get an address to send the item. Generally speaking, unless otherwise agreed upon, the sender pays postage. Don't make this messy; just deal with it.

The amount of the bid is then deposited into Mike's paypal account OR a cheque sent to his place ( PM him OR me )

If you are offering a service in return for a donation, please check in daily to see if people have posted about your service.

Further correspondence can be by PM especially if you don't want your name made public. All monies are deposited to Big Mike's paypal account or a cheque sent to his home or the hospital.

If you need either of these addresses, please PM me.

Let's keep this simple folks. I put this thread up for Mike 'n' Sandra & the idea is to KISS !!!!

Keep
It
Simple,
Stupid !!!!

:-) Most excellent to everyone 's offers.

Thanks to those of you who have PM'd me.

You guys rock.

Cheers, Tami Knight
