S'alright, they're temporally flexible and will wait in an unused corner
of the Multiverse until you do. Under-the-couch space is highly-valued
breeding space, y'know; 6 out of 7 aliens expressed a strong preference,
even after we eliminated the hivemind participant[s].

[laugh] Reminds me of a something Phil Foglio showed me at LASFS, a
comic strip he did where a guy is playing silly games for his
girlfriend's amusement; he leans over to the cat and stage-whispers:
"Don't worry, Martian brother! I know you're here to spy on the humans,
but I won't give you away!" The cat's response in the next panel is a
thought bubble with a panicked "OH SHIT, HE KNOWS!"

I'm assuming that the tips are complete - correct? I've also added
tag_interim1 to the repository and placed a HOLD on it as a backup
measure; *please* let me know if you change any filenames in the process
of finalizing it.

But is OK and coming up, yes? Or is part of one of the above?

[grin] I'll be here. If I need to, I'll set an hourly alarm; my sleep
buffer is comfortably full.

No one seems to be expressing any preference the other way, so the
current vote seems to be "antiquo", as the Romans used to say (i.e.,
"keep things the way the were".) We'll start mixing and pouring the
concrete sometime soon - not that we've ever actually _had_ a release
date policy other than "kinda sorta monthly". I think.
