It took me a couple of weeks to realize (i.e. Sat or so) that I should move the OLD info to the bottom and make sure the current info is at the very top! Doh!

Actually not sure it wasn't more the other way around.
Just hoping the paper doesn't appreciably change the past 30 years.

Finally got a few of the pics from the kids.

I wasn't given many pics to choose from, and I'm no good at photoshop, but I know someone at woot! that is.

Now, can we get back to wine, and/or the tour?

I have based my whole life around dressing comfortably. Even basically chose my career based on the fact that no one ever saw a Geographer and said, wow, he's dapper.

We're like the Pigpens of the scientific community. Not wanted, frequently unwashed, but secure in the knowledge that we're awesome.

Here here. I'm the same way. I've always had casual dress jobs. I want to be known for what's in my brain, not on my body.

Actually, that shirt. Hopefully washed since the last time I saw it.

And it's like one of those quizzes .. you know, One of These is Not the Same as the Others?

At least you wore your formal sneakers.

Is anyone else having problems with Woot? It's gone crazy with pop-up ads all of a sudden.


And I got a Visitor Survey, that was supposed to be 30 seconds (about 10 questions), but it's gone berserk and now says 110 questions and keeps repeating the last 5 questions.

Seemed really non-responsive an hour or so ago, till I rebooted the iPad. Don't know if it was the pad or the cell reception on the freeway.

Got AdBlocker blocking them now. It may have been blocking them before, and a game install might have interrupted it.

No new depositees?

Not since the last PM.

Thinking about opening up to those outside the first 43 an equal number of slots to those that are not in italics on a first-deposit-received-first-confirmed plan.
Just need to verify with rpm and woopdedo.
I think that opens up another 15 potential tourists.

I think we can wait until Monday because I believe there are those that will know by then.

Especially since they were so late (June 6) with the Deposit info.


Edit: Plus, I'm not sure I italicized everyone correctly. And Aces probably won't confirm unless her +1 can go.

Edit2: There's also some that have hotel reservations already, but need to coordinate everything else first as well.


Edit 3: You also can't use the full 15 because there were 5 drops in the last 2 days. Not everyone at the bottom has necessarily had a chance to see that they are now in the top 42 yet!

There are 4 that are new (with Aces waiting to see about her +1) and 2 more that I know have reservations.

If CS isn't helping and WD doesn't help have your CC dispute the charge. It usually wakes up finance real quick when they don't get paid.

So you'd kick Aces off the group, but add her +1 on?

Why do I have to try to get "good" service? I have had the only 2 orders this year be cra*. WD owes me a little loyalty at least. Perhaps a "What's up?" HE said he would look into it. He didn't. Good on ya people for sticking with who brought ya, but if I don't get what I paid for, sent to me... I AM OUT!

It was late.
I was tired.
I was watching the Kings.
It was after the Guigal.

I wasn't looking at the potential list,
just the non-bold, non-italic folks we've not yet heard from, excepting the initial interest post that got them their number.

Seriously tho,
It was initially suggested we get this done in a week; that just didn't seem practical for those without large cash reserves that just made a rent or house payment and weren't going to see another infusion for a week or two.

I was rather hopeful we'd be a bit further along than we are however.
So after Monday it will likely open up to some on the waiting list.

There are a lot of logistics digesting in the background regarding group size, and at 43+ this is large.
