Most of you guys met each other last year, I take it, but I'm a newbie who's not very good with names. Anybody want to give me a head start with a photo of your lovely faces with your first names?

That is me (Amanda) in my avatar - which you probably surmised, since it's obviously not anyone on White Collar!

I'm guessing some won't want to post their faces/names out on the WWW, so you're more than welcome to email me if you prefer: pandandrum[at]gmail[dot]com

Also, I'd love to get Twitter usernames for those of you who are on there, so I can make a Twitter "list" of all of us who'll be in NYC, so we can see each others updates.


I just emailed everyone who's going to NYC a group shot from last year. I figured Amanda's not the only one who would want to see some names & faces.

For all the new people, maybe you can email all of us a photo as well.

And Vonnie, I can't wait to see you!

Since I'm going to be our photographer, I've been trying to figure out if I can do something similar. I'm bringing my netbook, which doesn't have a CD burner. Tell you what, anyone who wants to get copies of my photos while in NYC (so you don't have to download them when you get home), bring a 16GB or larger flash drive or portable hard drive. I will copy photos on and give them back. Please label them with your name (write on a piece of tape or use a permanent marker).



thanks PJ. Just bought a 16GB flash drive and I'm much more comfortable with you downloading off your computer. My computer is so old I'm afraid I won't be able to download from any sites we use.

I just got a spare battery for my camera. I'll be bringing one of my laptops so I can back up my pictures at night (I gotta get a new battery for it). I tried out this new flexible tripod that I bought and I'm so bummed out because it wasn't strong enough to support my camera (it had flexible legs, so it can be wrapped around anything).

If anyone wants to test the download, here are three pics of my home town

The thing is, apart from our official photo shoot :P :lol: I would really love to see everyone's pics from the studio tour and set visit because someone might take an awesome pic of someone or something the others have missed... plus, there's always the threat of an epic camera fail at one point or another :P But I just don't think it'll be possible to share everyone's pics with everyone during our NYC trip... not enough time to circle all the flash drives.

So it's either the good old flashdrive in the mail :D or online storage :D

I loved seeing all of your smiling faces in the picture PJ sent! Made me even more excited about the trip!

As to photo sharing, I think the online download will suffice for me. That'll be one less flash drive going around to give priority to those who won't be able to go the download route. Also, it's so cumbersome for me to travel with my laptop, so my usual practice on trips is to load up my camera's memory card, and then I don't check out all the pics until I get home. I miss posting them as I go on Facebook for friends and family, but I try to snap a few on my phone that I can upload right away. (My Mom likes to see a picture now and then so she knows I'm alive and well and having fun.)

I will definitely try to download my pictures online but I have an old computer that crashes if I look at it funny so it's for my piece of mind to have pictures on a flash drive in case I can't get mine online.

But your idea is great for sharing.

LOL... I just had 5 minutes of intense brain activity, trying to remember in what movie there was a character who was causing computers to crash just by being near them :lol: :lol: :lol: It was Sam Neill's character in Jurassic Park :lol:

PS> I was supposed to remind you to pack that WC keychain thingy :D :wub:

Awesome, THANKS, PJ. I won't be bringing my portable drive with me, just flash drives for sharing files :D

And the option to upload our pics to our super secret online folder is still a go, everything is already set up, I will send the details through our mailing list. So don't worry if there's not enough time to collect pics from everyone in NYC, the premium account is valid till the end of July, so there'll be plenty of time to share everything :D

HOMG, only a few days left \o/


Thganks so much for this. I will bring a flash drive juse in case but it is great to have an online sharing system. :D Thanks so much!!

Thanks, Kanarek, for providing us an online site to share our pictures. It is a lot easier to download a few Zip files rather than downloading hundreds (or thousands) of photos one at a time.

And thanks, everyone, glad you like the flash drive idea. I figure all of my pics *should* fit within 16 GB. At least last year they did.

Meanwhile, I'm still struggling with my auction item. Grrr.... It's making me nuts. I have a design I really like but am having big problems translating that into fabric. I love to make bags but this one... *shakes head*

I bought two 16GB flash drives cuz I need one for the auction... and I'm gonna take my 8GB one as well, so I hope it'll be enough :D Gah, I saw the cutest flash drives evah - Angry Birds edition :lol: But they were all only 4GB so I didn't get one... but I'll probably cave and buy one later on :lol:

I guess there will be people at the Murray Hills with a big flash drive ? I don't have more than 4 Go flash drive, but as I'll probably come with my netbook, I could just copy the files directly to it, if anyone agrees ?

Heee... oh, the joys of going through closets and drawers and other weird, forgotten places at home... all in the name of packing...

Ara, I just found my old flashdrive, seriously, I haven't seen it in, like, a year, I thought I lost it... I'm not using flashdrives that often :D It's a 16GB one, I will copy my WC folder to that drive and you're welcome to use it for sharing pics :D
