Right, I've been ringing round a bit, and it seems like getting the video transferred onto NTSC (American) format from the PAL (Kiwi) tape that I have is going to be a bit pricier than I'd hoped. Essentially, if I wanted to get one or two copied, it's like $30 (NZ, so halve that for approx USD) each, but if I get one for, well, most everyone, it drops to $12 each. So what I want to know is - who else WANTS a copy, and would you be willing to chip in some money for copying and postage? Because, frankly, I can't really afford to buy x number of tapes, plus pay the copying charges, plus mail them to everyone... I feel bad asking for money, but there's no real other way I can work out to do it.

This would of course just apply to people who were there. People who, for example, go by the names of Rob, Sunny and Courtney are getting tapes anyway, as that was kind of the point, and I was expecting to take care of that. I just would like to get numbers of people interested, so I can work out how many tapes I'm looking at needing to get done and what would be the best way of doing so. Comments to the usual place, ta.

Basically, I worked out - if almost everyone wants a copy, if you can chip in like ten dollars US we'll be sweet. If you're dying for a copy but can't manage that, we can certainly work something out. At this point I'd just like numbers of people wanting a copy. Ta.

*raises hand*

Also, (US) $15 is actually really really good for the conversion. The place in Ft. Wayne that I used charged me $20 every time.

okay, noted.

Dude, really? good to know. I've never had anything done before so I had NO idea.

Would it be possible to get one or two copied, and then those of us in the states with tape dubbing capabilities could do the rest and send them off from here?
Otherwise, I'd be more than happy to chip in.

Well, see, I thought of that, but then sixty dollars for two tapes, and then people over your side still having to get tapes to copy onto, and postage, and the time to actually copy them might be an awful lot more work when I could get it done here. I'm mostly thinking in terms of wondering how many people exactly want them as to which way is cheaper and more time/money efficient in the long run. As, yeah, copying like four and sending those to be further copied was my original plan.

I mostly figured that would be the case, but spiffy.

I'm thinking either over paypal, or you could send cash through the mail (is usually easy to get away with small demonination notes like that)

Re:

But you can't send money through the mail!

Ignore here that I just told Kate that you totally can get away with it in small denominations. You have to abide by the letter of the law, Missy.

I would like one, yes. And I can pay you, if you would like. :)

Also, on the topic of money and Cleve, haven't had any money from Michele yet. I don't know her that well, so I feel odd asking... if you happen to talk to her, could you mention it for me please?

Thank you!!

*waves hand* Would be willing to chip in.

Also: It really might be cheaper in the long run to just have a couple of copies made.

NZ copies will be, what, thirty US for two?
And blank tapes here are only about a dollar. Plus it'll save a whole lot on shipping (it's cheaper to ship within the states than overseas) since everything has to be mailed anyway. Once you have the names of everyone who wants one, it shouldn't be too difficult to fix out, either.

I'd say it would probably end up being about five to seven U.S. a person, and your expenses wouldn't be nearly as great.

Re:

Yeah, I did think of that, too... what I was planning on was sounding out people to work out exactly how many we needed and then running a cost/benefit analysis on which way would be better. I dunno, it just grates to pay, like, $30 NZ for one tape, or about $30 US for two, when I could get like ten done for the same price... and I do have other things to mail to most people as it is anyway, so... I think we can sit down and work it out either tonight or tomorrow once I've got final numbers. Thank you for being concerned and thinking of other options, though, Lis. Appreciate it lots.
