And also:
http://www.download3k.com/Antivirus-Report-Drop-Box.html

Both say it's clean. So we have Bitdefender, NOD 32, Avira, Kaspersky and Norton all say it's clean.
It's probabaly just the heuristic function within MacAffee set to be suspicious of anything unknown that opens a port to Internet.


In other words: Here with those pictures! :)

Ok then, gentlemen, here we go:

http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/12548424/1/Coticule%20Pilgrimage?h=9cdb35

Tha bad thing really is that these pictures do not even closely capture the spirit of this weekend. I still find myself often thinking back to that weekend. Actually, there is nothing special about a bunch of people gathering to barbecue, drink beer, and enjoy a common passion. But these days were much more than that !!
Thanks again Bart for having made this possible!

Cheers
BlueDun

very nice pictures.
The Bible and several other self help or enlightenment books cite the Seven Deadly Sins. They are: pride, greed, lust, envy, wrath, sloth, and gluttony. That pretty much covers everything that we do, that is sinful... or fun for that matter. - Dave Mustaine

Well, for me they capture the spirit quite accurately. But I was there of course.:)

You're a good photographer, Rico. I absolutely love the pictures you took in the quarry. Those cloudy puddles of BBW slurry are stunning. So are several of your quarry shots.

Maurice has asked me if Ardennes can use some pictures for documenting the new website that Rob is building.
Would you mind?

Kind regards,
Bart.

PS. On Monday, I'm going to publish my written impressions of the weekend, I will illustrate them with some of these pictures.

Are you kidding me, Bart?
I'd be honored if my pictures will be used for the website. I'll toast a DVD with the originals and send them to Maurice.

Oh, and btw, I just noticed that I was awarded the Insider label. Bummer ....

Very nice shots indeed Rico.

To be honest, after taking a look I hesitated whether I should/could still post mine :huh: , but here we go...

Some of the pictures are a bit of the same, but I figured someone might prefer one over the other...

Regards,

Hendrik

Lovely pictures, Hendrik. Great that you thought about shooting a pic when we were visiting the attic.

The later in the weekend, the more wrinkled I looked. Even a shave couldn't hide that. :) I wonder how that came...:rolleyes:

Thank you for sharing,
Bart.

Thank you Rico and Bart.

Sharing these pictures is the least I could do of course, I hope they will serve as a memory for the attendants.
I am not 100% sure, as they are my own Picasa albums, but I think anyone can download the pictures in their original format (3888 x 2592 pixels). If not, give me a shout.

Looking at them already brings back great memories...

A huge thanks to Rico and Hendrik for documenting the weekend so well!

Yes, well, now that I have been properly humbled by the photography skills of our fellow members...:P
If I understand this correctly, this should be a link to my Dropbox gallery: http://www.dropbox.com/gallery/12453905/1/Cot_Weekend?h=90f84f Just some of the pics that I thought might be of general interest.

I haven't sized them or anything, just getting this thing up taxed me a bit data-wise for now. Things computer I have no problem with, but I seem to have a block towards everything that has to do with digital photography (seemingly also taking competent photos). But as Hendrik said, maybe a couple new angles would be of interest. Personally, I like the one of Bart washing our BBQ plates:D

Torolf

Yeah right. I look at my best on that one... NOT. :cry:

You had a lot of eye for detail, in your pictures. Both in the Brussels building of Victor Horta, and at Ardennes. I love that second one of the La Dressante layer: you can see the difference between the lower "La Dressante au Bleu" sublayer and the upper sublayer(s) very well on that one. And you have a very good view of the former mining galleries. Great stuff!

Thanks,
Bart.
