Celia, nifty thing, those mall kiosks.  Unfortunately, I've never seen 
one--we're not that advanced here.  As for zipping the pictures, excellent 
idea!  Maybe I'll start zipping all the other garbage on my hard drive, too.

Have you guys seen those Internet in the Mall kiosks? My kid brother's an
ISP in Williamsburg, VA, and he uses one for his company, Widomaker. I've
also seen the kiosks here in Little Rock. Often they keep a computer hooked
up to the web to let passersby see what they're missing.
Perhaps you could swing a deal with one of these kiosk guys to access Iris
websites in their display during your show.

That way you wouldn't have to take your own hardware to the mall, which I
agree, would not be my first impulse. And you wouldn't have to pay the line
fees.

Also, if you have a lot of picture files to save but are reluctant to gum
up your memory with them forever, a ZIP drive (less than $150) is a great
backup tool. You could load the files into your memory, then copy them to
one (or two) of those 100 mg ZIP backup disks, then kill the pix out of
your hard drive. When the time came to print them or display them, just
load them back into the hard drive.

It's a theory, anyway.

gloomy, and yet we have all these happy yellow bulb plants peeking at us.
