    if you need an ROV diary, I can do one, but it'll have to be on the early side. I work this afternoon.

    Heya KH ^5.

    Thanks Garret and all for sitting vigil here.

      400, you're welcome to - then I'd take the next one.  It's moving much slower (knock on wood) today than it was Friday... I've been here since about 9, and I think there've been 50 or so comments in that time.  Nika7k also volunteered for a ROV today, and she can't post really late ones.  I can, though, so if you and Nika want to do the earlier ones, I'll do an evening, and we'll find someone to do the overnight again, I think that'd work like a dream.  Whatcha think?

        yesterday was a big day as it turned out. And a long one - I am now able to appreciate the huge amount of work it takes to run these things.

        So I'll get something together - my quick news tour this morning was discouraging, and I've time to try and put something together.

        last night I was up to midnight - not good when little ones wake you up at crack of dawn!

        Can we make my next ROV in the early afternoon?

        any google doc to use?

          I can do one this evening if you need it. I'll check in to see if we are still as busy as it was yesterday. You guys are total rockstars.

              in a row:

              Papi - whenever this one hits 400, then Nika, then Papi, then alkalinesky, then me.  

              Groovy?

              And, Nika, I just sent you (and alkalinesky) the email that Papi sent me Friday.  It's got code.  Is that what you're talking about?

                  I sent you the mothership code - not the ROV.  I just forwarded my most recent ROV code - from # 9, which now seems like six months ago.  I'm not sure if it will do you any good, but I sent it anyway.

                  Perhaps Papi or Garrett would be willing to send a more current edition?

                  I think I'm going to do the google docs thing - if it hasn't been done already - with the  mothership code, and if someone will send me more recent ROV, I'll put that up, too.

                  What are your thoughts on posting the mothership now?  Should I wait for it to fall completely off the Rec list?

                  •  It's ok (0+ / 0-)

                    I can take the most current ROV and just update that. No problem there.

                    I think posting another mothership depends on you. If you don't want to babysit you can post it and have people unrec the other one.
