"Was someone able to shoot that additional family?
I didn't offer because I only have one speedlight and umbrella, and no backdrops, but if no one else can do it, I probably could, depending on the time."
"I had issues with Dropbox yesterday, but right now it's working.
The other problem with Dropbox, of course, is that uploads take a very long time. Downloads are faster. If you have a lot of files to send to Dropbox, just tell it to upload and…"
"Yes, I will use Dropbox. Robert can then download the files onto his computer, where he can put everything onto a CD with pictures he gets from people in other ways. It will only be a couple images in my case, but others may want to consider doing…"
"I only shot one person, and I'll have her pictures done tomorrow.
For picture files like this, I usually use Dropbox.com. It's easier than crossing the city in person, and it handles large files better than e-mail."
"Does anyone know about the parking situation at city hall? I understand there's underground parking, but I wasn't sure what the cost is.
It's a little far, but if any of you don't know, parking is free on Saturdays and Sundays at…"
"I don't mind picking up someone in the downtown who needs a ride to Busters, but I don't want to go to a location in the downtown. Busters is good because the Transitway goes right to Lincoln Fields for those using transit, and…"
"Helen now has the list of organizations that I contacted by e-mail last week, and as I only received a few replies, she is making follow-up calls. Unfortunately I don't have time to do these calls myself right now, but I will devote a day to…"
"Here's the info on H-P's status in the U.S.
As Costco is U.S. owned (I believe) this may be relevant.
Glad to hear they're looking at bending rules, and I hope it works out."
"Help-Portrait is registered as a charity in the U.S. I'm not sure its Canadian status, but suspect it is not. However, if anyone is reluctant on the grounds that it is not a "real" charity, it might be a good idea to refer them to the…"
"Thanks Robert and Helen.
Robert, I'm hoping that about 20 - 30 organizations will respond positively once we follow up, but that's just a guess. Some will be able to put up several posters, and we may find other locations to put them up.…"
"Once again, I would appreciate help from a few people to make follow-up calls to non-profit organizations.
The few I have heard from have asked about a poster, so I wondered if there's been progress on that front. It would be nice to be able to…"
"We're going to need some volunteers to make follow-up phone calls to non-profit organizations to ask them to put the word out to their clients.
I sent e-mails to 46 organizations yesterday, but have not had much response. I think it's…"
