Hi Kevin,

Well at the moment at least there are two Leica shooter user's in here. I
should be in for a "couple today....a bonus at the beach."  I'm just going
to soup film, let you know later.

This project '99 "one a day meanigful picture" thing is like shooting fish
in a barrel. Maybe that's the problem with it for our "street shooters,"
no challenge. :)

The hardest part will be keeping track of the prints in chronilogical order
for 365 days and captioning same, so that on January 1, 2000 there will be
a meaningful picture collection for each day of '99.

I wonder if the machines  could handle posting the whole 365 to the LUG? ;)
Kidding guys, just kidding!!  No no I'm not going to. :)
