General rule for replying: look at who the message is from; your reply will go to that address by default.

The way the list is set up now, it shows the "from" as whoever sent the message, so if you want the reply to go to the team, you have to change the "to" in your reply to team@vbz.net -- else it just goes back to the sender. (Which your replies both did.)

I'm not sure how to set it up so that it shows the list address in the "from"; will research that when I get a chance. That's probably part of the set of features which allows me to make lists automatically subscribable/unsubscribable by request, etc.

Lynne, here. I confused about how the "Team thing" is set up... I thought that if we replied to something from within the "team thing" that it would go to all of us in the circle, i.e. Nick, Bubba, Lynne.... I replied to something this morning and it never showed up on mine or Bubba's computer. Nick, did you get it? Is it supposed to go to all three or do we need to forward each post to all of us? How does it work? This is a copy of what I sent....

Notes

  • "teamspam@spamvbzspam.spamnet" was a forwarding address which sent copies to Bubba, Lynne, Nick, and possibly Sandy

(Haven't had time to read Lynne's response yet; saving it for when I have concentration time.)

Coupla things --

1. Reminder: I need to know what bears we still have, so I know what we need to order from 3rd party suppliers.

2. Is there a package on the way, and when are we expecting it, and who is it from? I can't remember if it was MT or LB, or if I'm just making it up.

Thankx & TTFN,

N.

Subject: another vbz list

I have created another email list, fansspam@spamvbzspam.spamnet. This address is for the "outer circle" (or should that be "inner circle"?) of those who are interested in and support my/our entrepreneurial activities. It includes everyone to whom I sent the earlier memos about strategy.

Responses to mailings should be sent to me; I will include relevant snippets in subsequent mailings. ("reply" will send a reply to me, not the list.)

(For those of you on the "woozletracker" list -- this isn't the "verbose woozletracker" I mentioned -- but it's something, right? (-; )

The sales figures for June are in. Here's the rundown for the past 13 months:

Month Year Charges Cost Ship %
6 2001 $1,160.30
7 2001 $1,174.89
8 2001 $2,513.41 $198.41 7.89%
9 2001 $932.41 $121.95 13.08%
10 2001 $712.47 $130.57 18.33%
11 2001 $2,188.21 $240.5 10.99%
12 2001 $5,854.49 $710.3 12.13%
1 2002 $2,309.40 $77.76 3.37%
2 2002 $466.83 $82.09 17.58%
3 2002 $1,397.06 $148.51 10.63%
4 2002 $1,122.67 $128.49 11.45%
5 2002 $1,112.85 $112.23 10.08%
6 2002 $2,035.61 $238.37 11.71%
  • "Charges" is the total of all credit card sales (with refunds deducted). It does not include check and cash payments, but these are generally minimal.
  • "Cost" is the total amount spent on shipping orders for that month -- not necessarily the same orders as were charged, but mostly.
  • "Ship %" is the cost of shipping expressed as a percentage of the total charges.

We do not yet have figures for $ spent on stock. This is obviously a very important set of numbers to have, and I expect to be able to track this within a few months if no more disasters happen. We do have the data recorded, but I don't have any way of quickly condensing it down. (Plan is to use the "Money Tricorder" application mentioned earlier.)

--

General status: we are (obviously, given the sales figs) up and running at the new location. The main stumbling block is that the boxes of stock are all in two rather large piles -- and given the robbery and some other rearrangements shortly before that, we no longer know what we have or where it is (or why we're in this handbasket). Complete inventory is needed. This won't be possible until we have some stock shelves -- but moving the rest of the stuff out of Red House still has priority, as we need to clear out the remainder of about 8 years' accumulated Schtuff in about 30 days. Fortunately, we have found storage locations for most of it. (Anybody want to buy a baby grand piano?)

All for now.

Subject: b4i4get

I have given Livia 30 days' notice for Red House (i.e. everything must be gone Aug. 1 -- though I may continue to use the storage shed). I know Lynne was interested in working out something else -- but I didn't hear any indication that it had worked out, and Lynne wasn't available for discussion when I had to decide what to tell Livia.

Presumably if there _is_ still something in the works, Lynne should feel free to contact Livia directly: lswadespam@spamarches.ugaspam.spamedu or 543-3995.

I do know also that Livia would very much like all the extra vehicles gone -- and has offered to pay moving expenses. I'm not sure she realizes what she's up against ;-), but I am pretty sure she's aware of every one of the vehicles I'm aware of:

  • japanese car (Subaru?) in driveway -- transmission?
  • long bus in back yard -- transmission?
  • ex-Cox camper -- no known significant vehicular problems, but hasn't been driven in years and lacks a battery (I think)
  • Jody's other Camaro
  • Frank & Jess's yellow 2-door with no back window -- ??

I see all of these as possible sources of cash -- scrap, if nothing can be done, or fix-em-and-sell-em. Comments? Please remember to think in terms of time spent vs. returned investment; none of these are fabulous vehicles, as far as I can tell, and I'd rather spend a couple of hours to get $100 out of one than spend a year to _maybe_ get $700 (and maybe get nothing, or maybe not have the time to do the renovation after all).

In addition, there are tents:

  • old L&B tent in side clearing (which is probably not very clear anymore)
  • Frank Owens' tent(s?)
  • storage tent(s?)
  • Frank & Jess's tent, and associated clutter

...and Mark's shed, which is rapidly becoming a hazard.

I will have my hands full just getting everything out of the house by Aug. 1; perhaps Livia will be willing to let us set a later date for clearing out the grounds. I am not cc:ing her on this message; I will wait until we have some kind of consensus on what to say to her about these issues.

--

Other update: I am still waiting for confirmation that cihost has received my signed payment authorization for setting up the dedicated server. I will send out another email when they let me know they have received it. Once that happens, I will start moving existing domains over to that server, beginning with redhouse.com and redistribution.org. There should be no interruption in web site availability (although much of redhouse.com is pretty messed up as it is).

--

All for now,

N.
