    Yes it's that time again. Time to sign up and plan your future. This may have been the last round of APUG Postcard Exchange, I thought of calling it Photrio #1, but no way! It's round 42 - the ultimate answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. So we have to have this round APUG 42. We usually don't have a theme here, but this round let's see your answer to the question of Life, the Universe, and Everything. (Translation: Don't Panic anything is fine)

    Sep: sign-on
    Oct, Nov: print and mail
    Dec: breather

    OK, now the standard text, but please read on:

    There are links to the FAQs and an Introduction in my signature at the bottom.

    As in the previous rounds, please signup by starting a conversation with me (used to be called PM) containing your full name, address (including the country - this is an international exchange) and the number of cards you are able to send or say maximum for the maximum possible number of cards. You can also choose "ALL" you will still only receive the MAX number of cards but you will receive the complete list so you can share your work with everyone if you choose.

    As in the previous rounds, if you have been in the exchange for the last couple rounds and if your address is the same, you can sign on just with giving the number of cards here in the thread. No PM needed in this case.

    Important! As in the previous rounds I will post lists of participants in this thread every once in a while. If you signed in (or if you think so) please come back to this thread and check if your name is on the list. If the name should be on the list but is not, then let me know. Once the address lists are sent out early in October I can not do any changes. And also check for the number of cards behind your name.

    There are a couple threads with an introduction and FAQs (check the links in my sig). Just send me a PM or ask here if you have any questions.

    Please read on:

    As in the previous rounds, not all participants have been able to send out the cards. For whatever reasons, if you have not fulfilled your last rounds commitment, send your cards before you sign in for this round. Just be fair. (and drop a note in the last round comments to let us know you are okay)

    And as in the previous rounds, I am looking forward to this round.

    Now for those new to the postcard exchange, here is how it all works out.

    First: It is fun!

    Second: When registration is over, I will prepare address lists which I will send to the participants. You will have to send a card to every address on that list and you should receive back a card from everyone on that list. So if you join in for e.g. 20 cards you will have to send 20 cards and you should receive 20 cards back.

    Third: Did I mention that it is fun? Where else can you receive cards from all over the world, different styles, different methods, different papers!

    20 for me again, and the same address.
    I'll be ornery and still call it the APUG Postcard Exchange - even if it is brought to you by Photrio.
    Thanks George for all your efforts.

    George:

    Happy belated birthday. I hope it was enjoyable as can be.

    I am in for the MAX. My address data is unchanged from last round. For me this will always be the APUG Postcard Exchange regardless of what it is called in the future. And, I hope there will be many future exchanges. There are really fun, and I get to see other photographer's work!

    I just arrived home from a two week trip to Idaho and Colorado to observe the solar eclipse, visit national parks, and visit relatives. Have not even unpacked film yet, and will probably start processing next week (I hope). I will try to keep to your theme, which I like very much.

    I look forward to this exchange.

    Regards,
    Darwin (drpsilver)

    Belated birthday George. Hope it was a good one! :D

    Please put me down for SIX, as in the previous round.

    Many thanks for doing all of this.

    After a late printing run for round 41 and even slower attempts at getting stamps, now that Ben the Postal Service worker has collected the post cards, I'd like to sign up for the max in this round.

    Same address details as per Round 41.

    Although the Post-Office did all they could to get me off this #42 round, I'd like to sign-on.

    I swear my cards are printed, labelled and ready to go, just waiting for **#$¤% stamps...

    So if you could sign me in for the MAX I'd be very happy
