    hey kidsmoke...yes it is in fact all here. I just saw the one disc and thought the rest were missing in the mail perhaps. After inserting the disc into my drive everything is in fact coded onto the disc : ) I will send the disc your way as soon as i finish the transfer to my machine. just pm me with your address

    I think so..
    I only got 1 disc, it's the shn files on dvd, guess the wav files didn't get reseeded. I can't decode the shn files right now, so I'm just hoping it's all there and all good.

    hey thanks i got the disc in the mail. BUT there was only one disc. In the vine description it says there were 4 discs. I only received one. Is this correct?

Hi! I couldn't restrain myself from mailing this out today, even though I said "Saturday". I never heard back from playdead; Pajak however is ready, willing and eager to take The Test so it is on its way to the way northeast. And here I go again, unilaterally dicking with a signup list. I'm putting playdead and Billy S at the end, for obvious reasons, and correcting the numbering. Let me know if I'm pissing anybody off...but most of all: Enjoy!

The package has arrived! Thank you, MitD. If I can get some work done today, I will drop tonight and get it out in tomorrow's post, perhaps the next day. PMing boxen posthaste.

I'm half way through the test (at least it feels half way - too far to swim back!) and no word from boxen. joneb - get on deck in case I don't hear from boxen by week's end. This stuff shouldn't linger in one place too long; might explode.

This would be the New Order: 30. Pajak 31. boxen 32. joneb 33. grdaed73 34. Dead Man Telling Tales 35. emily-j 36. hard_to_handle 37. TxJed 38. playdead 39. Billy S 40. mercedes42 But I've yet to hear from either boxen or joneb, and Billy S and playdead have already both been bumped to the end at least once, so keep your eye on the thread and when the head ahead of you in line gets IT, then pm your coordinates....

...they've disappeared, Billy S has anyway, been absent without replying to PMs for weeks now. Playdead PM'd me last week and said he was going to stop vining, for awhile at least. Probably OK to move mercedes up. Don't know what the deal is with boxen, thought he was fairly active still. Just don't let this vine disappear again, it's been reseeded like three or four times already, it's one of the first vines any new viner will sign up for.

The material on these six discs is must have for any serious collector/historian. I recognized a number of the passages referenced in Tom Wolfe's Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test when burning them. The Jer interview is great, both for the content of his answers and the background noise of people coming and going at 710. All in all good stuff; disjointed and poorly recorded, but eminently collectible. Here is the new list, unless we hear otherwise from playdead or Billy S: 30. Pajak 31. boxen 32. joneb 33. grdaed73 34. Dead Man Telling Tales 35. emily-j 36. hard_to_handle 37. TxJed 38. mercedes42 39. playdead 40. Billy S I will give boxen and/or joneb until COB tomorrow, then I will offer the sheet to grdaed73. Cool? "The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer." - Ken Kesey

This list has gotten hard to follow - and we've already had a couple of re-seeds. Apparently, Paps has the package & doesn't know where to send it - she never posted that she had received it & didn't know where to look to find out who was next in line. Keeping track is critical to prevent lost vines - I use an excel spreadsheet to track vines. Sample Vine Tracking Spreadsheet If this vine is off track - then whoever is next in line should PM paps & ask her to send it along - but be sure to post here, so everyone knows the status.

hey now erickat! "We" had no mixup, Paps stalled the vine. Back in the beginning of November I first PM'd paps regarding this vine. No reply. I pm'd her again two weeks later, still no reply. In mid December we gave up on it, and TNHG reseeded the vine, sending the copy to me in mid-December. The vine appears to be moving well now. Paps finally replied to me yesterday (after more than two months!) asking where to send the vine. I told her to keep the darn thing. She apparently needs help keeping track of vines, and also needs to read her damn PMs. Thanks for your help.

for discs 5 and 6 to this vine as it circulates. I was a little lost as to what discs five and six were when the vine arrived. Being a crafty researcher I quickly got to the bottom of the mystery.

I am less than crafty, plus I'm very lazy and haven't had a chance to look into it. Counting six discs was about as far as I got. ********************************************* *********Will work for blank discs & postage********** *********************************************

After reading a little deeper into the previous posts, it sound like playdead and Billy S are both MIA. So I am going to send it on to Canyon Critter, unless there are any objections.... nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
