I have just picked up Peter's disc from my post office and it has arrived safe and sound.

Update: We're having a Houston moment with the disk, but the forum should not worry - all it will mean is a slight delay.



From talking to the bloke who copied the disk; we think it may have become corrupted by the airport security scanning of the mailbags...  >:(

The disc may have become corrupted during the airport security screening of the mail bags.  But the first of the week, I will ask one of our art graphics people to have a look at it to see if I am missing something about how to open the file. 

But just as our beloved QE2 had a few teething problems, our disc is also.  All will be well in the end !

In the meantime, once I'm back from my week long charity challenge this week I'll see about getting another copy made unless June has been able to retrieve the data off the first copy before then.

How disappointing that the disc has been corrupted.  Lets hope it can be fixed.

Charity challenge completed - as for the jigsaw, I'll look at getting another copy made this week if there is no news from June's digital recovery experts.

I hope you get it all sorted soon.

Hi Peter and Adam -

Peter, congratulations on completing the charity challenge.  I hope all went well !

Adam, things are moving along and I should be able to access Peter's painting from an on-line file that Peter has provided.  I think the disc was wiped clean during security screening by the mails. 

More news to follow soon.

June   :)

It should work because the file transfer was done directly by the company that scanned the original painting; they very sensibly keep copies of everything on their system.  All I had to do was pass on the access link they sent me this morning...  :)

Great news! I will look forward to seeing it when it's been printed onto the Jigsaw. :)

The new jigsaw will be very good as we do not have an evening view of our QE2 in jigsaw.
