* MadDoc didn't hear a thing..

* CompuMom is CarlaC

**MikeB** Rootslady send him the howdy wave.

**MikeB** Megan, glad you made it here!!

**MadDoc** No sound card in here anyway.

**pigoletto** Pigoletto didn't hear anything either.  Is there 

   something I should set?

* MadDoc rolls on the floor laughing...

**pigoletto** Haven't a clue what I'm doing, but I'm doing it.**G**

* /sound: insufficient parameters

*** ljdolby ( has left #TXGenWeb

**pigoletto** Boy, that was quick!**G**

**Elsi** Well, RootsLady, I installed mIRC V5.1 (upgrade from 4.7) 

   2 minutes before I dialed in.  This is the acid test!

* /sound: insufficient parameters


**MadDoc** 5.1? is that the latest? I have 5.02

**pigoletto** My 5.1 32 bit has been installed three whole hours 

   so far.

**Elsi** Megan, you and I are the most vulnerable, then.

**pigoletto** (of course in my case that's not an upgrade)


**Elsi** RL, want I should send you 5.1?

**pigoletto** Well, I also dl'd but didn't install the MS comic 

   book IRC software....**G**

**Elsi** We've probably got time for the transfer, took me 16.2 

   minutes of DCC last night to get it.

**MadDoc** I'm going to blast that place into orbit.

**MikeB** I'll try again, but my mIRC is not set up right to send, 

  rootslady can send it to you. You will LIKE it!!

[CompuMom SOUND]

**Dallas-ak** had to find a new name as someone seems to have mine 

   so for tonight Dallas-aka-ljdolby

**MadDoc** I'm going to blast that place into orbit.

* MadDoc hates when that happens!!!

* MadDoc takes a pulse... then gives it back...

**RootsLady** I just went and bought a 4.2GB.IDE Drive

**MikeB** Bosque, Hill, Falls, Limestone are now available. the 

  sponsor wants to reduce his workload. Anyone want them?

**Dallas-ak** haven't figured the sound thing yet guys ... sorry

**pigoletto** Well, make the rest of the wFT disks I don't have 

   fall in my yard while you're at it Doc

* Elsi hands CompuMom a tall glass of Southern mint tea

**MadDoc** Should have got a bigfoot 6.5 gig.

**pigoletto** get incomplete again

**Elsi** (Better than a slap, right?)

* CompuMom thanks Elsi!

**MikeB** Forget me for sending sound, I'm hopeless.

**RootsLady** MadDoc - U got 1

* CompuMom mmmmmm good

* MikeB slaps CompuMom around a bit with a large trout

**pigoletto** **Fresh homemade salsa and chips on table**

**MadDoc** Yup...

* MadDoc slaps MikeB around a bit with a large kangaroo.

* CompuMom says MikeB better watch out. I will fry it up....hehe

**pigoletto** That's the problem with you guys, always too 


**MikeB** **Bluebell chocolate sundae ice cream on table - YUM**!!

**RootsLady** MikeB WHO am I suppossed to send WHAT to??

**Dallas-ak** mike, are you going to send a note to the newsgroup 

   re lunch on Thurs

**Elsi** Lunch at the Aquarium, right?  Are we taking names so we 

   can hold tables?

**pigoletto** Rootslady, think he wants you to send me the 


**MikeB** Either me or Mary Love will send it. She is the 

  organizer of the lunch. 

**RootsLady** OK

* MadDoc munches on one of Marvins dog biscuits...

**Dallas-ak** ok

**MikeB** I think we will have about 10 people for the Thursday 

  lunch. Should be fun.

**Elsi** cicada season here in Tarrant county.

**pigoletto** Okay, the sound dl seems to be running right in bg

**Elsi** what a racket!

**Dallas-ak** my other half hates cicadas

**MadDoc** Mike - I've made three county accounts for your TX 


**pigoletto** Gonna roast those ten people or stew 'em, Mike?

**MikeB** Elsi, do you mean tree cricket?

**pigoletto** Cicadas here noisy as all get out too....

**pigoletto** Drown out the TV

**MikeB** Great, Doc, we appreciate the help. They were about to 

  give up on rootsweb when you graciously stepped in.

**Elsi** I don't know if they're the same -- cicada == tree 

   cricket ???

**MadDoc** No problem..

**Elsi** RW is now creating 20-40 accounts each day.

**pigoletto** Never heard of a tree cricket, myself....

**MikeB** Tree crickets are first cousins to the horned toad.

**MadDoc** Glad to help out where and when I can.

**RootsLady** I've been waiting for an account on RW since April 


**Elsi** I recognize a cicada when I see one hanging onto the tree 

   trunk.  Big honking bug

**MadDoc** I made 50 accounts in an hour...

**Elsi** And many thanks to you MadDoc.

**pigoletto** Of course, when the local bank finds out, Doc's gone!

**pigoletto** lol

[RootsLady SOUND]

**MadDoc** Send me a mail to and I'll whip you 

   up on rootslady

**MikeB** Rubbing its wings and looking for a mate.

**Elsi** It is probably wise to have USGenWeb county pages spread 

   out on several servers just in case someone goes bankrupt.

**MadDoc** The one for the queries?

   is set. What's up.  Hi Mike!

**pigoletto** So how many folks usually show up for this wingding?

**MikeB** Usually 10-15

**MikeB** Let's give it another 5 minutes or so and then talk 

  about USGenWeb

**BroJohn** Depends on what's for dinner, Deer, road kill, wild 

   pig. Whatever

*** TxArchive is now known as jimurphy

**pigoletto** okie doke....

**marylove** Is the luncheon still on for Thursday?

[RootsLady SOUND]

**pigoletto** sounds okay to me.....

**MikeB** Yes on the lunch. Can you broadcast a message tomorrow 

  with all the details?

**pigoletto** around here dinner was tamales and salsa.**G**

**Erath** Hi all

**marylove** Hi Erath

*** CompuMom sets mode: +o Erath

**pigoletto** Mike hasn't said how he's cooking all the folks 

   coming for the lunch yet....

**BroJohn** We had tbones but I'm not telling my Doctor

**Dallas-ak** Hi Annette or Janice or both

**MikeB** They tell me they had to get a bigger room for my 

  USGenWeb presentation on Saturday. Lots of interest.

* pigoletto says ¿Qué tal, Erath ?

**Erath** Both here :-)

**MadDoc** Kewl Mike!

**MikeB** Roasting over an open fire with lots of BBG and 


  USGenWeb presentation on Saturday. Lots of interest.

**marylove** I'm planning to be there, Mike.

**Elsi** BBG????

**MikeB** No USIGS stuff yet, expecting it in the mail though.

**BroJohn** Yes don't forget the USIGS stuff, you can let 

   everybody know about the SIGGY for September.

**pigoletto** he has a cut rate Q.**G**

**MikeB** The SIGGY will be included in the presentation.

**Erath** LOL

* MadDoc rolls on the floor laughing...

**pigoletto** Margi Mannix wants to interview me on the 

   phone...presumably Tuesday, I guess

**MikeB** Megan, I guess this is your last day of peace before 

  your reign begins.

**pigoletto** She's the lady who did the USNews&WorldREport 

   article....this one's a freelance for

**pigoletto** good housekeeping

**Elsi** With a different font, I'd probably have seen it.

**MadDoc** 3 hours and 45 minutes left of megan's freedom.

* MadDoc **snickers**

**Erath** Congrats Megan, and good luck to you. :-) Quite a 


**pigoletto** Hey, it ain't been peaceful for the last two 


**Elsi** In which time zone does she take control?

**MikeB** I guess it is double the email and double the headaches. 


**BroJohn** That long? I would think they had already tied her 


**Erath** hehe

**pigoletto** Just spent a week with Lucy Dill here, chasing down 

   information on grants for USIGS

**Erath** GMT of course ;-)

**Elsi** Maine is the first to see Sept 1, do they have to wait 

   until the date rolls over here in Texas for Megan to take 


**MadDoc** Oh if it is GMT she is it already!

**marylove** I got space for the East Texas Genealogical Society 

   page today on Rootsweb.  Just applies last week.

**Elsi** After all it is USGenWeb

**Erath** Double your pleasure, double your fun, take head of 

   GenWeb, and boss everyone.... ;-) (In jest of course)

**BroJohn** Told you they already had her tied down.

**MikeB** Brian is doing much better now. I think the competition 

  from Doc helped.

**RootsLady** marylove...I've been waiting since April 28th

**pigoletto** Hey, I'm in CDT, ain't that what's also known as 

   "real time"???

**pigoletto** Interesting...if JR steps down at midnite 

   EDT....there's an hour of nobody running the store!

**pigoletto** Well.....gonna spread some of those headaches 


**Elsi** RL, Brian says he has over 4K unread notes.  Send again 

   if you're asking for space -- (or go talk to Doc)

**MikeB** I think John eased off a while back **just kidding**

**MadDoc** Ah.. what competition mike?

**pigoletto** In that case, I think I've already had it for an 

   hour and a half!

* MadDoc rolls on the floor laughing...

**marylove** Send in another reminder Rootslady.  That is what I 

   did and it came back by return mail.

**MadDoc** I usually get the space requests setup within a couple 


**MadDoc** or less..

[CompuMom SOUND]

* MadDoc rolls on the floor laughing...

   can save yourself and him a lot of work if you send another 

   equest. Last I saw he had in excess of 4200 messages to be 


**pigoletto** I think I've been firefighting since I walked in the 

   door from vacation the 20th....

[RootsLady SOUND]

**pigoletto** Don't think anybody's taken a problem to John since 

   the address went down.

**MikeB** Rusk Co Historical Commission has taken over the Rusk Co 

  page from Bonnie Palmer.

**MadDoc** So his little vacation thing doesn't tell the truth? It 

   says he reads every message he gets..

[CompuMom SOUND]

**Elsi** RL -- if you upload to 5.1 from 5.02, watch out for your 

   .ini files.  I got all of them converted except popups.

**BroJohn** Just beause there is some ANGER at JR, which I can't 


**Elsi** Brian reads them -- just not in a timely manner **grin**

[CompuMom SOUND]

**MadDoc** Right you are Elsi

* MadDoc **snickers**

**pigoletto** Are we gettin down to bidness yet, Mike?

**Elsi** RL -- guess I need cheer & rooster

**MikeB** As much turmoil as JRT experienced last year, some 

  people are sure to be mad.

**MikeB** Yes, Megan, let's get down to business.

**Erath** What is the new mIRC like? What changes to make it worth 

   changing it *again*?

**Elsi** BTW, did we get a sound WWW page set up?

**pigoletto** How bout the list requests, Doc? I made that last 

   one 45 whole minutes ago!**G**

**MikeB** I'm waiting for a link from rootslady to set up the 

  sound wave link.

**MadDoc** You did? I haven't gotten it yet.

**Elsi** Thanks, Mike

**pigoletto** Yup...we haven't got a prospective date on that 

   account changeover yet, either.

**RootsLady** I've been working on it. I'll let U know when it's 


**MikeB** Megan, give us your perspective of USGenWEb today.

**pigoletto** It doesn't say *when*, Doc....

**pigoletto** John, that sounded like the last half of a statement 

   I don't see a front half to.

*** Trey_Braz ( has joined #TXGenWeb

**MikeB** Hello Brazos County

**Elsi**  Hello there, Trey_Braz

**Trey_Braz** Howdy everyone

**CompuMom** Hi, Trey_Braz

**marylove** Hi Trey Braz

**pigoletto** want announcements or "bury the new NC 

   in questions" first?

* MadDoc Says G'day Trey_Braz, and Welcome!

**pigoletto** On the phone, Doc.

**BroJohn** Hi Trey

**MikeB** How about some good news announements!!

**pigoletto** Hmmm...I dunno if I have a "perspective".

**pigoletto** I do have places where I'd like to see changes 


**MadDoc** oh ok Megan...

**pigoletto** Mostly in openness and participation in the decision 

   making process.

*** CompuMom sets mode: +o Trey_Braz

**pigoletto** Which leads us to the big hairy announcement....

* pigoletto says ¿Qué tal, Trey_Braz ?

**MadDoc** oh ok Megan...

**pigoletto** USGW is about to have a board to back up the NC.

**Elsi** YES!!!

[RootsLady SOUND]

**BroJohn** About Time

**pigoletto** First year I'm just sort of arbitrarily appointing, 

   because setting up election processes is going to take time.

**pigoletto** The board structure is four part:

**pigoletto** First off, there are four appointive/automatic 


**pigoletto** Archives head, Census head, Tombstone head, and 

   person to be figured out somewhere along the way.

**pigoletto** Second, the country's been sort of arbitrarily 

   divided into four equal regions...13 states/entities each

**pigoletto** (of course, since 51 doesn't divide equally, Texas 

   gets to be two**g**)

**pigoletto** Each region will have one SC or Asst SC 

   representative...that's part two of the board

**pigoletto** Part three is that each region will have one CC rep.

**pigoletto** Part four is two non voting advisory members.

**pigoletto** One from RootsWEb (identity unknown, Brian's working 

   on picking the person)

**pigoletto** One from DSEnter Dotcom....Dan Sunderland

**pigoletto** the SC of the Central REgion is Mike Basham.

[CompuMom SOUND]

**marylove** Yea Mike!

**pigoletto** comments?

**Dallas-ak** congrats Mike


* MadDoc rolls on the floor laughing...

**Elsi** Congrats, Mike

**Erath** Congrats to you Mike

**MadDoc** Uhm... uhm... **cough cough** Congrats Mike!

[RootsLady SOUND]

**MikeB** I'm glad to be part of Megan's team and look forward to 

  helping out.

**CompuMom** Congrats... Mike!

**BroJohn** When does all this take place? What effect does this 

   have on the status of USGW? Do you plan on incorporating?

**BroJohn** If you are going to incorporate, what will that mean 

   for USIGS?

**City** good choices Megan

**BroJohn** Yes Good choices too. 

**pigoletto** Boy, Mike, have you been going to school to learn 


**City** USGenWeb probably will never incorporate

**MikeB** I have been monitoring usgenweb-all mailing list to 

  learn some manners **grin**

**pigoletto** Takes place at midnight.  Don't see any reason to 

   incorporate as long as USIGS is out there.

**City** lol Mike

* MadDoc busts out laughing at Mike.. usgenweb-all for manners! 

  **rolling eyes**

**Erath** hehe

**Elsi** Megan, have you got any insight to the occasional flare 

   up of accusations & desertions from USGW?

**pigoletto** Basically, it spreads around the decision making and 

   mail handling to some extent....

**pigoletto** (Negative examples, eh, Mike?**G**)

**Trey_Braz** Will you be formally posting this somewhere?

**pigoletto** It also provides somebody with the authority to 

   remove an NC if necessary.

**MikeB** Or remove an SC if necessary??

**pigoletto** Yup....tomorrow, guys got the scoop.  

   James Streeter's supposed to be pulling together a web page 

   with all this.

**BroJohn** You mean there won't be any NC's or SC's for life?

**pigoletto** I think we've got quite a few fairly paranoid folks 

   out there volunteering....

**pigoletto** and they often take rumor as gospel.  Don't see a 

   way to fix it....

**MikeB** Goodness, I hope not an SC for life!!

**pigoletto** Except to enlist the rest of us to stomp rumors.

**pigoletto** Yeah, I think so, Mike....much easier than it being 


**BroJohn** I think the rumors will always exist, it is the nature 

   of the medium, but perhaps with some structure you will be 

   able to stamp them out a littl quicker.

**pigoletto** Less opportunity for it to feel personal.

**pigoletto** NC and board are going to be annual terms, but 

   nobody's batted around the idea of term limits.

**Trey_Braz** I think open discussions like this are the best way 

   to squash rumors the proliferate through email

**MikeB** With so many people involved in this project, there will 

  always be some torublemakers and rumor spreaders. We must take 

  the initiative to respond quickly when a situation occurs.

**pigoletto** Of course, just from what I've seen so far, anybody 

   who'd want the NC job longer than a year....

**pigoletto** ....should be removed to make time for their 


**Elsi** Megan, does it make sense to encourage co-SC for every 

   state?  Not every state has a MikeB to keep things on a 

   pleasant keel.

**Erath** lol

**City** I'm among those that think USGW is the best thing to come 

   along for Internet Genealogy

**pigoletto** SC's and CC's, as always, will hang on to their jobs 

   as long as they want 'em, barring obvious abuse....

**MadDoc** I've got a whole team here in NE helping me handle the 

   state... IA has also done this too.

**pigoletto** Part of the problem is that folks tend to take their 

   rumors and questions to the wrong folks.

**City** lol

**Elsi** It appears that some states are more a one-man (or 

   one-woman) empire, though.

**MikeB** And I am in favor of spreading the Texas workload. Dana 

  Thomas's group to pick a County of the Month has been a big 


*** BroJohn has quit IRC (Read error to BroJohn[]

: Connection reset by peer)

**Elsi** Mike, you're the exceptional leader.

**pigoletto** I think every state's supposed to have either an 

   Asst or Co....which is up to the folks involved.

**MadDoc** Well I am known for setting examples of what should and 

   can be done..

**MikeB** No asst or co in Texas - yet.

**pigoletto** I'm still coming in on this and getting a feel for 

   what's out there.

**MadDoc** And you're right Megan... most states do have a co- at 


**pigoletto** But having been spread across three states (now only 

   two), I have some feel for it....

**Elsi**  Hello there, BroJohn

* MadDoc Says G'day BroJohn, and Welcome!

**pigoletto** Ooops...that should read, was four, now three.

**RootsLady** Face it Mike...U R GREAT!!

**City** I couldn't do it without the help of my VA cc's and their 

   handling certain state projects

*** CompuMom sets mode: +o BroJohn

**pigoletto** Forgot OK...don't tell Ronda.**G**

**Elsi** There's a lot more camaraderie among the TX folks than AL 

   -- due entirely to the state coordinator.

**marylove** I'm new to all this but Mike has been a great help to 

   me with Coke County.

[RootsLady SOUND]

**pigoletto** I'm retaining my position as SC of Missouri, as well 

   as four counties......

**BroJohn** Hello again. I don't know if my last msg was received, 

   I was suggesting that perhaps a good 4th member at the 1st 

   level would be some kind of trouble shooter.

**pigoletto** Considering giving up the Lineage site, and did give 

   up Cook County, IL.

**City** I think Megan will do a great job as NC

**Elsi** Lineage site?  What's that?

**pigoletto** I can pretty well assure you that I'll only be NC 

   for one year, though....

**pigoletto** Come fall of '98 I plan to be back in school, at 

   University of Illinois at Chicago, finishing my history 


**BroJohn** One never knows, it could go to your head you know.

**pigoletto** ROFL

**CompuMom** Tough job.... **appreciating your task ahead**

**pigoletto** I'd think Texas could probably use two, given the 

   county count.

* pigoletto says ¿Qué tal, BroJohn ?

**pigoletto** Make an arbitrary line down the center and have a 

   West TX Asst and an East TX asst.

**City** Megan, looks like one of your first jobs will be to make 

   sure cc's know about all of USGW

* BroJohn bien, et tu?

**pigoletto** Oh. **just figuring out that's Linda.**

* MadDoc gets out the chainsaw and makes Texas into two even 


**BroJohn** How about north south?

**MikeB** We probably will need a separate asst for the Republic 

  of Texas when it is officially created **grin**

**jimurphy** Why we in such a hurry to organize Texas Folks?

* BroJohn gets out the chainsaw and draws and quarters Texas, 

  whoops different show huh?

**CompuMom** lol

**jimurphy** Bye Bye all.

**Trey_Braz** The Govt's always wantin to split us up....ha ha

*** jimurphy has quit IRC (Leaving)

**pigoletto** It's a thought....other thoughts have been the 

   Military head, or the Lineage head, or an appointive 


**BroJohn** Bye Jim

**MikeB** I am going to gather some info from the other SC'

**pigoletto** That one's mine**G**

**pigoletto** It's a place to submit an ancestor who was born 

   before 1800 and lived in the US...

**MikeB** s and make some decisions about splitting into assts.

**Erath** I think that Mike is doing a great job, but I also think 

   that a backup person would not be a bad idea just in case 

   something would happen. You never know. (Never wishing 

   something on Mike...)

**pigoletto** Help connect with other folks from the same line.

**MadDoc** Hey Mike - I'm not saying you should do it... but it 

   works great for me here.

**pigoletto** (Doesn't keep folks from submitting guys who died in 

   1958 and lived in Russia...or me from discarding them, tho.**G**

**BroJohn** That sounds interesting, I'll have to mosey over to 

   look at it, Megan.

**marylove** Can I have that address again, Megan?

**MikeB** Megan, are you comfortable with the USGenWeb Lookup 


**City** Mike, as the VAGenWeb SC, an assistant helps take care of 

   time consuming tasks

**pigoletto** I'm just not the Empress type, John.....

**pigoletto** Tend to be hands off unless I really get honked.**G**

**MadDoc** There;s a link to it off the main usgenweb page.

**BroJohn** More of an HMS type?

**MikeB** City, what specific time consuming tasks?

**pigoletto** The problem is that the NC has no authority to do 

   what usually *really* needs to be done...

**pigoletto** ...which is sending the occasional CC or NC to their 

   room without supper.**G**

**BroJohn** Well will the board have any real authority, or will 

   things still be by concensus?

**City** Mike, like updating the e-mail address for the auto-query 


**City** answering e-mail, etc.

**pigoletto** another tX chainsaw massacree, huh, doc? **groan**

**MadDoc** Boo hiss Megan...

**pigoletto** Always seemed to me that TX divided more naturally 

   E-W; I certainly would defer to Mike on that, tho....

**MadDoc** But was what IU was trying to get at.. **G**

**pigoletto** Jim, didn't think we were...just talking about 

   assistant SC's which are kind of the standard....

**pigoletto** and the idea that maybe as big as it is TX needs two.

**City** Megan must be lagged REAL bad

*** tmorris ( has joined #TxGenWeb

* MadDoc Says G'day tmorris, and Welcome!

**Elsi**  Hello there, tmorris

**pigoletto** Whatever happened to that five state clause in the 

   constitution, anyhow?**G**

**tmorris** Thank You

**MikeB** I only spend four hours a day doing this, so why would I 

  need an assistant **grin**

**MikeB** Hello cousin Travis. **We found a common ancestor last 


**BroJohn** Hi tmorris

**pigoletto** Where I think my biggest problem is going to be is 

   in finding a way to insist on being able to continue to have 

   personal opinions....

**pigoletto** ....and to clearly distinguish between official and 

   personal opinion.

**pigoletto** Other states have found it's real useful if for no 

   other reason than business trips and vacations.

   personal opinions....

   to that paranoia we were discussing.

**pigoletto** Fair use is fair use.  I still have SC's insisting 

   that one lookup volunteer violating the law will get them 

   personally sued....

*** BroJohn sets mode: +o tmorris

**pigoletto** My understanding of the law is that if you tell them 

   what they're allowed to do (one or two names)...

**MikeB** In Texas, we posted the lookup policy pretty much 

  continued business as usual.

**Elsi** As a lookup volunteer, it's just amazing what people will 

   ask of you, though.  Someone who doesn't understand fair use 

   can create a mess trying to be helpful.

**pigoletto** ...and you have no control over what they do or way 

   to monitor it...

**pigoletto** can't be legally liable for their actions if 

   they violate that.

**pigoletto** Fer what now?????

**pigoletto** I think a lot of decisions will go to the board.  

   You can't poll 3000+ people in a timely fashion.

**pigoletto** Anything as massive as incorporation...which I don't 

   forsee coming up...would still go to the membership at large.

**Elsi** Megan, I think there's a bit of confusion over what 

   constitues "membership"

**pigoletto** The SC reps might want to develop methods for 

   finding out what the folks in their region think.

* pigoletto says ¿Qué tal, tmorris ?

**MikeB** Elsi, I think any SC or CC is a member.

**City** she probably means "volunteers/cc's" etc.

**pigoletto** Typing as fast as I can...can't control transit 


**Elsi** Is a lookup volunteer or archives volunteer a member, 

   too?  Might be a critical question if it comes to a "vote".


**City** that was brought up during the logo and name vote, Elsi

**MikeB** I don't feel that a lookup volunteer or archives 

  volunteer is a member.

**BroJohn** The problem with the legal system is that no one cares 

   what is right anymore, you can be sued no matter if you 

   followed the law or not. We have to do what we can to make 

   sure that we do the right thing.

**pigoletto** Only four?  We need to get you more jobs.**G**

**MadDoc** I think the vote policy page is still there too.

**`dom`** what's this channel about?

**City** all the Archive file managers are either sc's or cc's or 


**Elsi** I'll take a look at the policy page, then instead of 

   tying up the channel with that discussion.

**MikeB** dom, this is a discussion amoung Texas GenWEb county 


**pigoletto** Think I've answered all the outstanding 

   questions....did I miss any?

**BroJohn** Dom we are all with USGenWeb, and TXGenealogy Web.

**Elsi** We might want to consider how to handle things when all 

   the counties are sponsored & there's an eager volunteer.

*** `dom` ( has left #TXGenWeb

[RootsLady SOUND]

**City** It's difficult to determine who votes and how many, as 

   some counties are hosted by more than one person

**CompuMom** Or one has more than one county.

**BroJohn** Well you also have one person hosting 2 or more 

   counties, and in different states too.

**Elsi** Yeah, do I get 10 votes?

**City** right

**MadDoc** LAst Dec when we voted on the logo and a couple other 

   things.. it was one person one vote.

* Elsi coordinates Calhoun, Cherokee, Cleburne, Randolph, and 

  Talladega counties for ALGenWeb

* Elsi sponsors Brewster, Jeff Davis, Pecos, Presidio, and 

  Reeves counties for TXGenWeb

**RootsLady** I want my 9 votes!

**City** hehe.. y'all joke, but some people demand a vote per 

   county **g**

**BroJohn** Chaos begins to reign again.

**RootsLady** HeHe

**Elsi** nah, just good natured ribbing.

**pigoletto** Pat Smith just sent me an email saying he just 

   installed mIRC and wants to come here....

**RootsLady** Mike..ELVIS (dom) has left the building **G**

**pigoletto** Sent one back giving route....

**MadDoc** Well if we're going with county/states and the like... 

   I want my Whole WorldGenWeb Countries votes!

**City** Doc is helping him, Megan

**MadDoc** I am?

* MadDoc rolls on the floor laughing...

**City** aren't you?

**MikeB** Barry Best has a terminology which he calls the 

  "Benevolent dictator" approach.

**City** poor Pat

**pigoletto** Mike...Missouri too.  Elsi....bottom line is, we 

   have *no way* of actually monitoring what lookup volunteers 

   are doing.

**MadDoc** I sent him a message on how to get here.

**pigoletto** All we CAN do is tell them what they're supposed to 

   do/not supposed to do....

**pigoletto** and if we get an author complaint, deal with it 


* BroJohn Rolling on floor laughing hysterically

**City** has anyone pinged Megan and got a time?

**MikeB** There is no way for me to know who or how many lookup 

  volunteers there are in Texas.

**pigoletto** And I know what you mean...I get requests like "look 

   me up all the Joneses on the census, 1840-1900.

*** BroJohn has quit IRC (Read error to BroJohn[]

: Connection reset by peer)

**Elsi** City, No ping response from Megan

  volunteers there are in Texas.

**pigoletto** If I'm feeling friendly, I'll write back and 

   'splain.  If I'm feeling bloody-minded, I delete.  Any 

   thinking body should know *that's* unreasonable.

*** BroJohn ( has joined #TXGenWeb

**Elsi**  Hello there, BroJohn

* MadDoc Says G'day BroJohn, and Welcome!

**City** I haven't gotten any yet either

**BroJohn** Love getting bounced.

**Elsi** I've got a somewhat kindly worded paragraph that I copy 

   into e-mail to explain the limitations on a lookup.

**pigoletto** (Much less likely to delete if they ask for all the 

   Smazzlebottoms or some such....much shorter list.**G**)

**BroJohn** Hi all again

**Erath** I don't get a dcc answer either

   into e-mail to explain the limitations on a lookup.

   Jersey and now i'm in Toronto

**Erath** Uh-oh, looks like we may split

**pigoletto** From a voting standpoint, I'd think that's primarily 

   SC's and CC's, but it's never really been defined.

*** CompuMom sets mode: +o BroJohn

**pigoletto** Lookup volunteers are sort of in limbo.

**Elsi** I removed the lookup link from my county pages until I 

   can have a real heart-to-heart with the volunteer.

**BroJohn** That's OK, I haven't been able to find any in my 

   counties anyway. I am doing what I can myself.

**pigoletto** There was a move afoot on the incorporation vote to 

   include all lookup volunteers...but I think it got discarded 

   as unbelievably unwieldy.

**City** too bad Megan is not clairvoyant

**Elsi** For my TX counties, I don't own a thing.  If the Republic 

   of Texas manages to take over, these counties will be in 

   another country, anyway & I can join WorldGenWeb.

**pigoletto** I would think archives volunteers would be voting on 

   archives issues.

* pigoletto says ¿Qué tal, `dom` ?

**MadDoc** There ya go Elsi! 8*)

**pigoletto** John, agreed, but I can't see getting all paranoid 

   about it.

**BroJohn** Well if her lagtime is as bad as mine, I know what she 

   is going through.

* CompuMom *quietly raises hand*

**Elsi** Megan, it would make sense to provide safe storage for 

   archives by placing on at least 2 servers.

**pigoletto** I think archives volunteers and FMs would be the 

   voting body if Linda needed to call an Archives issue vote.

**City** That's what we've done, Elsi

**Elsi** City, is that 2 servers at one site or 2 different sites?

**City** Right now it's being handle manually, but hopefully, 

   we'll have mirror software running sometime

**City** two different sites

**BroJohn** I agree Megan, the volunteers for lookups are a part 

   of the county structure anyway, if you do one county one vote 

   that takes care of that issue. If you restrict voting to SC 

   and CC that also takes care of the issue.

**City** one in CA, one in NE

**pigoletto** By the same token, on an Archives vote, the SC's and 

   CC's would not be included...but the board would. (top of my 


**Elsi** Good -- two sites provides for disaster recovery.

**City** when NE freezes, CA is there.. and when CA **hate to 

   mention the quake word**

**pigoletto** Linda, dunno if anybody else is having a problem 

   seeing me...are any of you?

**MadDoc** I had mirroring software up and running until Brian 

   shut me off from rootsweb

**City** Also, it looks like we'll have two different search 


**BroJohn** Well City, maybe we need a 3rd site? I know that Brian 

   has 3 backup sets and I'm sure that Doc is just as careful.

**City** Megan.. we see you, but you are 30 minutes behind the 

   conversation. I typed this at 7:18 p.m. PT

**pigoletto** I think where it stood last time was each cc got a 

   vote, even if they only had half a county

**pigoletto** But the cc with 12 counties still only got one

**City** Doc and Brian both have backups of the Archives

**City** welll.. Megan's ping is over 11 min. I finally got it

**pigoletto** That's one to put to the board: one cc=one vote, or 

   one county=one vote?

**MikeB** I agree with one vote per cc regardless of how many 

  counties they sponsor.
