Just so you know, my email has more unread messages than I can possibly read at this moment. You may wish to make your headers descriptive to help me determine which emails to read first. Only email please if you must; otherwise firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also please don’t switch to leaving Skype messages. It would be problematic to have to keep opening Skype.
Pat Donworth: I wonder what the cost is of phoning from the Neptune. Probably astronomical. (Indeed! Actually we will be able to phone home from ET.)
Dedicated Email Address
We now have an email dedicated exclusively to this trip: email@example.com.
As it stands now, people are sending me email, BZ, the Comments form, the Article Suggestion form, and we cannot man all these channels of communication. We run the risk of not seeing your email.
So from here on in, we ask that you send all communications regarding the trip only to grener11.
Casey has temporarily disabled the “Comments” and “Article Suggestions” form until Saturday morning, with apologies to Pat and her team. I’ll ask Casey to make them operational again before he leaves.
We have now posted a “Flight List” so that you can see whether you are on the list or not. We’ll post only first names, last initials where there are two first names the same, and a small portion of the email to cement identification.
If anyone wishes to be removed, they may write me at firstname.lastname@example.org putting the words NOT GOING in the header and ask to have their names removed. Please stipulate whether you are simply asking that your name not be displayed or whether you are asking not to come on the flight.
I’ll be speaking to Grener or Archangel Michael today at 10:00 Pacific Time. Dave has suggested that I ask him to take me on a scouting trip to the Neptune ahead of time so that you can see that this is a real event. G or AAM may have a reason why not to grant my request. We’ll have to see.
But if he does, I’ll have a friend photograph my departure and get that photo to Pat. Perhaps wait before cancelling your appointments until that has happened so that you can see evidence that this project is real.
I said that we will take all members of a certain translator team with us, only to discover later that there were more members of the team than all the seats we have so far been granted. I cannot keep granting more and more seats to the team, I’m afraid, unless I can persuade Grener to increase the number of people who can go.
Even so, I think it fair to the general population of lightworkers not to give all the seats away to this large a team. So I intend to put a cap on the number of translators who can go on this first trip. I regret my error in having assumed that there were only 15-30 members of the team and apologize for disappointment or inconvenience.
Pat Donworth and Mods
Pat will be staying behind to edit the 2012 Scenario and attend to all business below. We will be bringing Pat up for a day or two mid-trip.
Andrea and the 2012 Scenario moderators will be going so we may need temporary moderators. One member of the Bridge Fund will be remaining behind but will not have contact with … the guys we can’t mention.
