    The prospect of my EVER making a Polkfest seems to diminish daily.

    I (today) brought my second large project in the last twelve months in--seven figures under budget. As I'd anticipated and been preparing for, there was an immediate offer of advancement tied to a massive project that's been "simmering" for a few years. The intellectual challenge is far too compelling to walk away from, so I accepted. The money isn't bad either. ;)

    That's the good news.

    The bad news is the meeting at Troy's may be impossible for me (again.)

    Yeah, I know Jesse. The Gantt charts (first run) are trying to eat the dates. I'll get a much better feel for the October block by mid-August.

    No Sid, you can't run around naked screaming "I'm the king of the world!"

    That is Doro's job.

    Jesse needs someone to be his personal hairstylist during Polkfest if you're interested. :D

    Jesse, I am taking a lock of it this time, no doubt about it, you can give it up or I'll just take it, your choice.

    Brett only missed by what a few hundred miles? I mean he did come from the desert all that dust clogging his mind up.

    I'm going to hurt myself, but I'm leaving that one alone....

    If my memories of MS Project are anywhere close... Christ, if your Gantt charting now you just enter a new sub task titled "Mike goes to Charleston for a mental health break", enter a 3 day duration starting Oct "whatever" and make it independent.

    How tough is that?

    I also am sort of in the same boat as Sid, I would like to come and it seems these dates are feasible for me but, by that time I will be 18 which is still too young to drink (of course) and I have no clue what the laws dictate.

    I dunno...look, liability IS an issue for me.

    I've got to think about this one but unaccompanied minors is not something that I'm that keen on.
