    Things are in the works for round 2, but that will be a separate thing in its own thread. Don't start posting about that yet.

    It's ok. Just didn't want this thread to get cluttered by everyone jumping on round 2.

    I got a message from O.J. that he will post the box on saturday.

    So the box will probably arrive on monday or thursday.
    I will post pictures as soon as possible.
    But I still have to search how to post pictures.

    First you upload the photo to a host website, like imageschack, flikker or photobucket for instance. Then you right click your uploaded photo on the website to copy the image location.

    Then you come here to create a post. If you click the picture of the little tree above the field where you type your post, next to the one that looks like a piece of film (this one is for youtube vids & such) you can just paste the link to your photo there and it'll show up right away.

    Thanks for the info, this seems clear.
    Are there certain advantages to imageshack, flikker of photobucket? So, which one to choose? Or are they about the same?

    Can't help you there I'm afraid. I prefer imageshack myself, but that's probably just because I'm used to it since it was the first one I tried. Flikker seems to work well for many people here too, but I'm not a big fan of the interface myself since their last upgrade.

    I’m usually using imgur.com but sometimes other services, too.

    When starting a new box, how about actually using a new box? The old one will grow in dimensions and weight to the point that shipping cost of the box will be higher than of the contents. ;)

    If at any point someone has a similar sized box, try change it to reduce the weight a bit. I know when I got the box it had 5 or 6 lots of tape on it :p

    Finally, I received good news.
    Tracking info says it's delivered to the neighbour.
    I will have to wait untill this evening to get the package (or until tomorrow if he's not home in the evening).

    Time to open an account with an image hosting site!
    Thank you all for the answers concerning image hosting.

    I'll get a fresh box to start the second round.

    Sorry for the long wait.
    I have been busy the last couple of days because of some work deadlines (working until late in the evening) that I didn't come to making pictures yet. I'll try and make some time tonight to post.
    To make up for the wait, I'll put in some nice goodies for the second round.

    In order not to kill anyone from the suspense ...

    The things I picked:
    -Sipik SK68 (after some googling, I found it can zoom and is a good "budget light". I like it)
    -true utility scixors
    -card wallet (can anyone give some more info about it, especially the "rubber bands inside")
    -a keychain lighter
    -card tool
    -keychain screw drivers and cap lifter
