Saturday PM

Didn't make it.

Deleted the last couple of messages. Not really appropriate for archive.

I used Duplium in the past and they make lots of mistakes. I ship CD's world wide from DFW area and I don't see anything like the delays you all suffer. My customers would lynch me if my service took so long!!

Find a new fulfillment house. You'll be the better for it.

Suggestion : Why not duplicate and ship from the USA. I'll bet because of population differential, most of your customers are here anyway. US could care less about shipping out, incoming is only issue (if its for real the Homeland security is causing delays - I don't believe it is)

Nothing yet but at least I was able to watch the Clyde section over at a friends house.

Suddenly Michael's kit isn't looking quite so insane.

Thanks for your suggestions Bob.

There is no doubt that delivery from Canada via the US Postal Service has become problematic. I know that the DVDs get to the border in a timely manner but the holdups from there can be huge. As to which of the various institutions is responsible, one can only theorize. But given the fact that most US subscribers receive the DVDs in a relatively timely manner and that the problems generally occur only in mass shipments of new issues and then in 'pockets', my guess is that a sack of DVDs sits in a corner somewhere and receives very tardy attention.

Our fulfillment house Duplium is actually very efficient and the blame for late delivery cannot unfortunately be laid at their door - would that the problem was as easily solved as that would be!

We are going to look into doing the next mass mailing to the USA  from within the USA. This would delay the initial shipment by a week or so but would hopefully speed up the actual deliveries.

I would be delighted to  hear from you directly with your experience and contacts for fulfillment within the USA.

Congratulations, Bob!

But don't forget to turn off that dripping faucet now.

No go here.  How long do I have to wait before we decide it was lost?

Tthe regular subscription issues always take about a week to reach my mailbox in Italy (issue #14 took 8 days) but once, when I ordered two or three back issues to complete my LL-VJ collection, it took more than three months (while I was thinking they were lost): never understood how that happened... but with a lot of patience they finally found their way to my mailbox!

Got home late last night so I only had time to watch the Clyde Butcher episode and part of the lightroom demo. Poker night!

I knew Clydes work so I was really interested to get a sense of the man. One of the best parts of LL is the interviews, it really humanizes their art. Many of the interviewees (Ctein, Norman K and Steve J) were brought to a new place for me, above and beyond their art through LL. I wonder if he'll do John Shaw in the future. I've noticed John is now doing workshops with MR. I would have loved an interview with Galen R, but that has passed us by. Besides I can't see MR, "on belay" during the interview.

In the lightroom cd, I noticed Schewe was using a laptop with wiggles (waves) on the top cover of the Apple laptop.  Something new??

In the past it has taken roughly 3 weeks to get the CD to my doorstep in Texas. It's strange the time frame differs so much for the subscriber.

Good luck

The only laptop I have seen with the "wiggles" was a Sony with the funny name. I think they call it a VAIO

Published by a tree hugging Canadian,

Though I've seen him photograph many, I've never seen Michael hug a tree.  Not to say it doesn't happen though. ;-)

I have a Vaio.

I picked up on it because MR and JS were sitting side by side, both with Apple powerbooks opened. The difference was the "wiggles/waves.

Look at the CD.

Eight days to get to Italy! It's been over three weeks since being informed of shipping, and it still is not here in Minnesota. I know there's some distance from Toronto to Minnesota, but I got to believe that it's a heck of a lot closer than Italy! And I've seen here on this forum that others from Minnesota already have their copy. When I ordered all the back issues(great bargin, by the way!), I got them in about a week.

Just wanted to chime in and say that I loved the interview with Clyde Butcher.  It was the best interview on the LLVJ yet and I learned a ton.  Just seeing those prints makes me want to run out and pick up ImagePrint and start doing a ton more B&W work!

Thanks for the great interview.  Keep 'em coming!

Does it also make you want to run out and build a mile-long darkroom with enormous trays for processing huge wet prints with the help of water noodles?    

I agree. It was a great interview, and I find it very satisfying to see someone for whom the quality of the result is his main focus, and the means to that end can be whatever works best, be it conventional or digital.
