Just read the post about circulating within Australia, sorry. Should have read more closely.

However, I still think we should keep the average holding time in mind and monitor progress.

séamuis, is it possible (and desirable) to update your list with shipping dates or perhaps a countdown to help us keep an eye on time?

its not my list mate, I just updated it for tomypreach. I think you will have to ask lbam about that.

Progress Tracking

For those who want to keep track of progress, I've created a spreadsheet with despatch dates and receipt dates that individuals can add dates to as the lens moves around, and modify the ordering. Of course, it's entirely voluntary, but satisfies my ambition to keep an eye on how things are going, and allows the current holder to make a better judgment about who to send onto.

The Forum only allows certain types of attachments, so I've zipped the Excel spreadsheet.Nifty50Progress.xls.zip

I'll try to keep a master copy going.

Apologies for wrongly attributing the original list to séamuis, when it was actually jsherman999.

Dunno if you know about this but you might like to give http://spreadsheets.google.com/ a try. Allows for public sharable spreadsheets (for free I believe). Just something I think would be very nice for the spreadsheet sharing on the interwebz.

@ RobA_Oz....relax with the rules, time schedules & excel sheets. Most of us have bosses, wives/husbands & children who boss us around each day, don't need it here mate.

I'll be sending the lens tomorrow to leadbelly.

No worries. Just taking the old OCD for a walk.

Seriously, comrade, it was just a tiny exercise in helping to get the nice man's lens back to him on time. Newspeak not intended. "Voluntary" still means voluntary.

I'll just stand in the corner and rust...

Flickr: travelingnifty50mm's Photostream

I created a flickr account and passed the details to lbam. It looks like it's slowly being populated.

It'd be good if those posting could include details about the photos they took so that we have better insight on where, what the lens is doing!

Cheers.

I may be a bit dumb, but I am having trouble finding the postings on Flickr.
Could somebody clarify. are there shots posted there yet?
If so, how do I find them?.

Likewise, if posts to Flickr can contain some geotagging data, that'd be even better!

So where has the lens been so far? I would like to plot it's route. I'll post a link to the map as it changes...
