I'm in Central Minnesota and I would send cash.
I'm also on a Mac running 10.6.8 if that makes a difference.
Here is what I downloaded: sx230hs-101c-1
I did download SDMInst and made the 2GB card bootable but it still did not work.
I'm going home now but will come back in a while and check back. I wish I could IRC, but in my school that is blocked. Bummer. I have NO problem sending it to you. I have till mid January when we will finally be ready to start testing all the parts for a February launch.
Thanks for the willingness to help. We REALLY appreciate it!
