    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Found a sd card with pictures on it during my recent trip to iceland. Judging from the pictures, people look american. Do you know an internet site where I have some chance to get a hold on the owner? I feel bad for people who lost 500+ pictures on a nice trip.

    Thanks

    Any pictures of a hotel? If they are date stamped, you could contact the hotel, maybe even send a picture to them. Unless there's some kind of specific detail in the photos like that, I'm not sure how you'd do it.

    Post them all on Flickr, and wait for an angry e-mail from the original SD card owner? It might take a while, though.

    I have quickly browsed the images without really looking at them. I'll take a closer look this evening, but there are very few hotels in iceland [​IMG]

    Where exactly did you find the card? This could help you connect the card with its owner

    Well that sounds helpful. That would be great you are able to actually return the card to its owner, that would be a story that would warm my heart. Should be possible with internet. If you found it in a hotel, that would be the easiest place to start. Maybe the Icelandic consulate/embassy could help by looking up the plate and finding out what rental service owns that car?

    I have emailed a random car renting company in iceland and the girl called the police to id the car. They have identified the rental company and I have sent them an email yesterday.
    Things look good so far...

    Hi,
    I know this is a long shot, but did you find the card in the airport in Iceland? I also had a connector cord to my camera and pc with it. The memory card is also smaller than usual as it uses an adaptor to fit into regular sd slots. And here is the big question, if the answers for the above are yes, do you still have it???? We did have a rental car but pretty sure we lost the card when switching items from one bag to another at the airport.

    Thank you,
    Merry
