[Darkroom] Fwd: RSchat: donating film camera?

David is a friend of a friend, with a camera to donate.  My schedule
is all kinds of unpredictable and I'm stressed out about finishing my
talk for 26c3.  Could anyone on the list arrange a time to meet with
him?  I suck at meeting people during the day since I tend to be
working.  And nights are kind of bad for him.

I don't want to keep him waiting too long.  He's ready to do the drop-off.

Hi Audrey

This all sounds great.  And I would love to come check out Noisebridge
and see what you all are up to.  I need a few days to copy the rest of
my DV tapes over to my hard drive, then I'll be ready to hand the
stuff over.  Would some day next week work for you?  Best times for me
are Wednesdays, almost any time, Friday afternoons, and I could manage
a quick trip over on Tuesday or Thursday morning.  My best,

David
