    •  Used to do some of that for the TTU Press (3+ / 0-)

      of all the ways to lose your mind in administration, copyrights and credits for quotes in other people's research papers (permissions office) has to be the fastest.

      By the way, SF, this is the place I'm inviting you to:

      •  Dear BS, thank you SO much! (3+ / 0-)

        If you are in touch with anyone at the museum, I would like you to ask them if they need any photographs of WW2 gliders. I have many images of CG-4As, Horsa, Hotspur, the only Hamilcar, Kirby Kite, even Rotabuggy, and Rotachute. Also, some German WW2 primary training gliders.

        If they need any images, I'd be happy to help.

          but I will find out what I can. I know somebody (John McCullough) I can ask. He works in another division of the department my SO is in (the one that flooded Wednesday night and dumped six inches of storm water down onto seven racks of servers) -- it may be a day or two before can come up for air, but I'll find out. He built the 3-d wooden models of the fields from around the South Plains the museum displays (they're in very finely handcrafted woodwork).

          Meanwhile, do me the favor, please, of conserving your stamina and health toward recovery.
