I uploaded with about 3 bytes to spare! Well, not quite... but 59,643KB is pretty close to 60MB!

I filmed Sat, Sun, and this morning, tweaked a bit, had to squeeze it to exactly 3 minutes, and am rendering. On my side of the globe it's 11:30 AM, so I've got a little wiggle room if I need to tweak the file size. I'll say Whew when it's been uploaded...

I'm uploading mine again now (Mat, that's nr 07, same file name as the original upload).

In a (not so) bright moment 90 minutes before deadline, I desided it was a good moment to re-edit my film.
Being optimistic and thinking "plenty time to go, no problem".
Well, re-editing is done, encoding is done, and it seems like uploading will complete a couple minutes before midnight. Plenty time.

Trond, don't forget it's "midnight anywhere in the world".

You could work on it all night if you wanted, I think you have until about 8am GMT tomorrow, which is midnight on the west coast of the USA!

Mike, I have always thought about it as "midnight wherever you are at the moment". But I'll make it with several minutes to spare. Almost completed uploading again now.

Mat:
After re-uploading my entry, the new one has got a new file name (added "1" to the end of the file name):
Can you please check that only the new version is saved, and if not, delete the previous version?

This is the message after upload/transfer was completed:

File '07_UC16_Norwegianfjordsandmountains.mov' already exist!
New file saved as '07_UC16_Norwegianfjordsandmountains1.mov'.
Transfer complete!

Hi to you all

Just wanna pop in and say that I have seen your films and they are all great.
I had a totally computer crash and sad to say I have lost many of my edited files.
Not only my PC was damaged but also 3 of my external hard disk, with several files on.
My tapes are still in tact though :)

Some happy information is that the Norwegian Ministry of the Environment have established 36 new nature reserves (conservations areas).
Most of tehse areas have large populations of seabirds and one of them is at my place :)
It's where I've been filming for the last 3 years, namely The islets of Kvamsoy.

Best of luck to all of you in Uwol#16

Geir Inge

Hei Geir Inge,

Sorry to hear about the computer problems.
There is a company in Oslo specializing in recover data from damaged harddrives.
It is expencive, but might be worth it.
Can't remember the name of the company right now, but a google search should find them.

Hope to see you around next challenge.

Geir Inge, very sorry to hear. Please contact me if thereīs something I can do. I think itīs strange that you got disk-crashes on several disks at once! Remember that I used to work as a computer engineer so I maybe able to help you out!
