To translate "just over 20GB on my snow leopard" -- that's exactly 19GB in
real terms, or 20.46 billion bytes.

If you want just low res jpegs, that's just under 1GB, or if you want only
high res (and extremly high quality) jpegs that's almost exactly 8GB (a few
of them can be weeded out manually on copy, like the ones of my gps set at
the end) -- the rest is raw files for completness.

I'll be making the GPS trace available to anyone that want's it too, I
forgot to include them in the data I gave to John.
