Here's the deal:
I've got the following items out with reports status as follows:
Highgear Axis Watch - good standing during my OOP, no reports due
BearVault BV100 - Text cancelled, BV200 (replacement to BV100) will
arrive on my door while I am OOP. My home is a secure location, and
my mail is being picked up, and I've instructed my mail contact to
look on the porch for UPS packages on a daily basis. The BV200 will
most likely be delivered while I am OOP, and I will get the IR done,
using my IR for the BV100 as a basis, before the end of May.
POE Max-Thermo - FR, due 5/4. This report I may be able to get done
while I am OOP, even with my piss-poor cyber-cafe resources. Why?
No pictures, and it's VERY short. It will be late though, perhaps 1-
week for the first posting.
Rocky Gore-Tex socks - not in the DB yet... no info on due dates
BD Lighthouse - lots o' pictures and layout to add to my text... not
something I can do given my cyber-cafe resources. This report will
be done ASAP when I get back to the States, and should be posted,
edited, and uploaded by 5/23.
Six Moon Designs Starlight - FR due 5/18. This report will also be
handled ASAP when I get back to the States. I've got a few picts
that I need to include. It is not a long or technical report, and
will be posted, edited, and uploaded by 5/23.
Magellan Topo GPS - FR due 4/20. Boy, are GPS units nice to have
when wandering around European cities (read LOTS o' walking, twisting
roads, maps not really available unless you're in a BIG TOURISTY
TOWN). This report will be done upon my return as well. I'm going
to include my European experience, probably center the report on it,
while its fresh in my mind.
What's my access like? No English Windows interfaces, no spell
checkers, and cyber-cafes in the middle of bars/discos so I've got
lots of smoke in between be and the monitor (yuck), tons of NOISE,
and a glass of wine, a shot of vodka, AND a bottle of beer next to me
to keep things in line (sort of). I've also got at least three
languages in my head right now.
Everything's late. SORRY, SORRY, SORRY. Hopefully, this will all
work out for the best. At least, I think the rules on scheduling FR
and LTR around the LAST IR delivered (IIRC) will ensure that we'll be
testing the BD tents when many of the testers, including myself,
actually have snow on the ground).
