    You people are killin me.

    I just got home from Kotzebue this afternoon and couldn't wait to the new calendar and screen saver. First off, I can see I need a new camera (there goes a bunch of money) and second I gotta get to some new extreme places to get some exotic pics. And for those Autrailian pics, is there any place that isn't flat and dusty? For the lower 48 people, whats with all that green stuff in the picture? I think it is grass. The good kind you land on. Also the lower 48 guys/ladies seem to have some pristine looking airsheens. Bring em up to Alaska and let us Alaskans put some spur marks on em for you. Those Swiss/Norway pics just tic me off. I know there are some beautiful ladies in that area. For the Alaskans, you all look like you are broke and need money. I know I do. Seriously, great pics and I really enjoyed looking at them.

    Not a one picture in the calender... I think this is rigged by the camera companys

    Looks like I need better spots, better camera and more luck!

    I can tell everyone had a great year... :P

    Hey guys, your shots are all likely on the screensaver, which I kicked up a notch from last year.

    Let me say again how VERY hard to choose the pictures it is, I so very much want to include them all - ok except a few from you jokers out there.

    The calendar and screen saver pics are getting better every year. It is amazing how good some of the photographers are doing. The pictures really look professional in a bunch of the shots. Great camera skills. I was impressed with the amount of great quality pics this year.

    I wish the Screen Saver disc had Jpegs available for viewing so Us MAC guys could enjoy it too. I am going to pull one of those old Troublesome Windows Computers out of my Closet just to see the Screen saver. In any case Awesome Calendars and DVD!

    I apologize to the mac users, but doubling (at least) the cost to fulfill ten more orders just does not seem financially feasible. Yes, I could put the pictures on a disk and send the out, but I am trying to make a reasonable effort to protect the IP of those who provided the photos also.

    Steve,

    Is there anyway to slow or stop the screen saver images as the pop up for a longer look?

    If you go to your regular screen saver properties (display, screensaver) and then go to settings, you can change all kinds of things like the time it is on the screen, the transitions, the order (random, not random), etc.

    Good question Steve. I had not thought about that. I wonder if I can load it into Mrs. Torch's picture frame?

    it is confirmed,

    my computer does not like the screen saver. I am not that computer savy to get it to accept it, so can someone tell me how good it really is????

    Mrs. Tango, the local computer guru, is in china until christmas, so all I get to do is look at the disc

    Guess I wil have to go hunting instead.

    George,

    Why does it not like it? Do you have Vista or Win 7? If so, you have to install the extra little program that came on the CD.

    George.. just got mine today. Froze my computer the first round because I'd left open my internet and mail programs. Close everything and put it in your CD drive. Your computer should take care of it on it's own... although mine took a LONG LONG time (and my heat detecting variable speed fan was fully spooled and sounded like jet by the time it did) before the install wizard popped up to do the actual install that took a few minutes to load.
