I think it's just my poor overloaded internet trying to upload 55 emails with attachments all at the same time. Should be with you soon Mr X!

Message received loud and clear. Taking a moment to review the packet and organize the principals. Sounds like a rollicking good time ahead. I will check in again when I get stymied. I hope I will find others in a similar boat. We will be able to take comfort in our shared misery.

Just received the 2nd (or maybe it was the first?) copy of the email briefing. If it was the first, I'm *very* glad you sent it twice!


Thanks!! :D

Is it a bad sign when the first thing my browser wants to do after opening the pkt is to download an extension?

I was a little thrown at first by the receipt of two like packets from two different email addie's.

Starting the timer for the first volley - prep and scrub.

OKAY, props to rdale for spotting my first mistake. YOU SHOULD ALL HAVE A COPY OF THE MARSHAL'S OFFICE FLOORPAN.

I'll email everyone a copy, but it's here as well:

MARSHAL’S OFFICE AND JAIL
Located on the north side of Fremont Avenue, between 3rd and 4th Streets.

No, there are no windows, but there is a back door which goes to a shared backlot to other buildings on Fremont that do have windows.

Is it okay to have a space ship in it? (I'm thinking of calling it "Serenity")?
