As far as I can tell the rules around here are enforced randomly and without too much reason.
As I understand incoming mail, they are not supposed to read incoming letters, but they do need to review printed matter for acceptability. I have requested the actual directive on "media review" to see what they approve of or disapprove of.
Of all your mailings, I have only received the message about no more than five pages of printed matter that one time.
Yes, I did get the blog letter. In the future, just put the date you send stuff to me along with the number of sheets and that way I will confirm receipt.
Thanks for checking the weight of my letter; I will be sure to put the extra postage on anything more than four pages.
I do not really need to see the IMDB movie reviews, although I did note that the person talking about Anchorman
thought it was very funny. This proves that he or she is on same plane as the idiots in here.
I did get the Pipe Dreams
schedule; thank you very much. YES, I DO KNOW YOU ARE THINKING OF ME OFTEN! I do think that a lot of the negative wave type stuff, me whining about you not doing "enough" or you being burdened by the flood of my requests, would be a lot less if it were not for the time lag of the US mail.
Yes, in the old days it was all there was and everyone realized that time sensitive stuff was bound to become a problem, but now since you have multiple communication options available, the slowest one, which is the one we are stuck with, tends to not be as expedient and the rest of your contacts happen more in "real time." Plus since I may indeed be sending two or three letters to your one, my otherwise simple requests pile up.
I think I should get back to making those "to do" lists; if nothing else it shows me clearly how many things I am asking you in any given letter. But enough off this; well almost. I state loud and clear that I am truly blessed by all your efforts and I apologize for all the times my requests tend to snowball into a whole mountain of to-dos for you.
One aside on you figuring out how to type the "cent" sign [Ed. Hold down the Alt key and type 0162 on the numeric keypad.]
(see, I used the word so as to not confuse the OCR). One of the inmates here had a lawyer e-mail a brief to his wife. When she printed it out, all the words that ended with "'s" became "=s". It sounds like a bad translation of the font. One font's "=" is another's "'"?
So let me know about doing double-sided by first typing page one to four on the one side, then printing five to eight on opposite side.
I am assuming that I can use actual numbers for times, and following months for dates any other digits will be replaced by the proper alphabetic equivalent.
Okay, I have printed page two. It is now 8:40 PM. I turned in the seven books tonight and have sent the paperwork down to the package room to reduce the number of books they think I have.
