    SolomonGrundy I'm not crazy...

    Well...

    ...it's not like I haven't promised you my first-born anyway. So, as long as you are feeling like Santa Claus, we need a Logo for our site, $10,000 in funding, and Luck like Osama Bin Ladin.
    btw...did you vote yet?

    Vote...

    Hello...

    What the hell - what money are your asking me to vote for that could be better directed to studies of how to grow plump cranberries...

    I like cranberries...

    Post me a link - I grow weary and erie - Erie - that is a big *** fresh water lake - is it not...:)

    Yeah - Christ - cranberries versus a - 'pedal me bike' - boat - all over the place...

    Seriously - you keep asking for votes - votes for what and where...

    Also - I am not just so pied yet - but if you have a 3dm of that thing - I have a PhotoShop trick that I have always wanted to try - based on same that has been done...

    Perhaps I should just go play some sniper games and sleep in the den...:)

    I do logos...

    Who Designed That...

    Hello...

    I still think you are mad - but hell - lets face it - same has been the historical force as far as real ground breaking science and innovation has been made historically - so carry on being mad - and being proud of it...

    Most psychologistists see no market value in mad men who may succeed - only tenure status in criminology or other obvious rhetoric within an academic sphere that pays them out of a public fund - and they need money bad - because they are or where - free loving hippie shits who had no real job skills...:)

    All the best....

    Would you believe....

    Our only plans are the original pencil drawings on vellum, made from the original offsets. They were dammaged when the roof blew off our shop last winter. Fortunately, all of the mold pieces had already been laid out and cut. I'm trying to reconstruct the drawings as best as I can, but I think I'll have to make use of the resources at the NWSWB to do a good job of it.
    ...btw, thanks for your vote and comment on Ideablob. I'm still working on that pic., but it is a bit overcast right now.

    If you are proud of doing nothing in developing an (HPC) please keep your troubles to yourself and value others time.

    You are happy with self-appraisal. Get the nappreciation from others. I wish you luck.

    ...yet another HP/V update.

    Not too much to update, our board of directors has voted on, and approved, a 12 month postponement in the launch date to 10/2009 while their volunteer pilot (yours truly) takes leave to work on the Office of Naval Research's FSF-1 Sea Fighter refit project at the Cascade General Shipyard in Portland, OR.
    This will hopefully allow us to work out some of our funding and construction issues to better advance the overall project.
    I look forward to returning to Port Townsend in the late spring of next year to fit out and launch the HP/V Global Challenger.
