Lisa Update
Lisa called me a few minutes ago to tell me that she made it home to Mehama late last night, and that the van ran tolerably well. She commented that when she examined the seven-year-old fuel pump that we replaced, she could see that it was visibly worn out. She's tired and still suffering the trail end of that sinus infection. As the Big Orange Van has no air conditioning, going up the coastal route (US-101) was indeed the better option for her, even though it took longer.

The WSFS Mark Protection Committee
In response to a comment on another post saying that "There isn't much information about [the Mark Protection Committee]" and asking for me to write about what it is and what it does, here is an example of my "copious spare time." (In reality, it's that this is a relatively easy request, which makes it something I can toss off quickly.)

Secrets of the SMOFS lie within!Collapse )

Note that some of the events I describe in this article happened before I started attending Worldcons in 1984, or during the period 1985-88 when I was not participating actively in WSFS business. I have attended every Worldcon since and including 1989, and have chaired the WSFS MPC for the past several years, but this article represents my own opinion only, not that of the WSFS or the MPC or any Worldcon or NASFiC Committee.

Update, 11 July 17:30: Added more commentary about WSFS Inc. as a result of feedback in comments.

Current Mood: accomplished
