No, Google didn't turn over anything to the govment, and is the one who broke silence. However, I like the idea that those lemon curd recipies could be gumming up the works as it were.

*fishy wolves down steak* Thanks, joel.

Blah, double blah. I have sold my soul, and am working two jobs. This week I will work fifty-seven hours total. I now have no life. I hate Minnesota, and have been in a low depression since the 16th when I came back from a short weekend trip from NV. I tasted the outside world and now can't get back to this northern tundra. I'm realizing that I'm not getting paid enough money and that I'm capable to handle more difficult work. I wonder if it's possible to like your life everyday and still have some cash to support yourself. I have no health insurance and really need to get some dental work done.

But on the upside, I bought my ticket for this year and just got the confirmation that I should have that ticket within five business days. And I have some money to pay down my debt which is kind of nice. I also have goals, like get the hell out of Minnesota. But I'm not quite sure how to achive them.

Today is not the best day to ask me that question, I think.

I'm currently slacking off. Blah.

Now, how did I know that YOU were going to say something snarky like that.

Well, maybe I should take a shower with your hippie bath gel or whatever it was. I KNOW there was some hippie bath product in that shower.

Oh, yea I sometimes forget about the time difference.

I'm just bored today and would like people to talk to. Not that it really matters as I only have ten minutes left and then I'm off to the wine store where I get to waste away at a cash register for three hours.

Blah, sorry I'm being whiney today.

There are places worse than Minnesota. Just drive Northwest about 300 miles and you'll be in wonderful North Dakota.

Minnesota is no place for birds Blue. Personally, I had some great moments while living there, but the fact that your eyeballs can freeze solid before you get back into the house with your newspaper is just wrong. I recommend plenty of drugs and alcohol to tide you until you can fly the coop.

Groovy shit EDB! Thanks.

Am I alone?

White Russians tonight since that's all I have left.

Well, I do have some Merlot, but I'm saving that for dinner tomorrow.

Ah...Z. Good to see you tonight. I'm doing OK. Should be paying bills, but I think I'm just going to drink and do it tomorrow.

A drink for you.

I have one that is leading the pack in my mind. It really depends on participation. Right now we've got 3% of the pixels spoken for. I expect that there will be an announcement in the JRS within the next few days, that should help.

How much lead time do you have to give the satellite people? Do you have a go or no date set?

The satellite is actually the least of my worries. They can do this with very little advance notice, especially considering the area. The biggest problem with getting a sat photo is typically cloud cover. We should not have that problem.

Internally I'm thinking that we need to have a significant portion of the pixels spoken for by the end of May in order to do the full blown version. Otherwise we'll scale back.

Seem like you should be able to get a good number of pixels spoken for by then.

I hope so. I also fully expect that one third of those that are spoken for will never arrive.

Another drink?
