  • Off my lazy ass

    Ok, I finally put some info up at http://defconcannonballrun.com and http://moloch.org/cannonball

    * There might be errors. I am still double checking
    * The sign-up should be working
    * Most people have gps phones so get instamapper and iframe stuff to me.
    * Volunteers are always welcome at both ends of the race.

    more to follow

      I haven't seen anyone sign up for it and no conversations have been heard either. I wonder if I will have to cancel it for lack of interest.

          I tried to send you an email to let you know I was available thurs for whatever at the Riv you needed but the mail bounced. Might be your problem with the lack of interest as well.

                  I gave one of the time clocks to Craig to take it into Vegas. The race is still a go for Thursday. First racer leaves at noon.

                    Hi,

                    hm, little information - I hope our Team is registered even though it doesn't show up in the List... Guess we'll find out tomorrow...

                    Anything online planned besides the instamapper? We'll have IRC on board, I'd suggest a channel with key on efnet?

                    Not really knowing what to expect tomorrow,
                    Ray
