Crap.  I'm suffering through farkle 17b right now.  I've rebooted and restarted and I can't get the software for the streaming to work.  At least I've got the internet going so I can get to the Forum.

You're not missig anything -- nobody planning to run for an hour or so.  I'll keep fiddling with the stream.

It's going again.  Bothersome -- gotta find a better system before next year.  But at least I can make it work if I pay close attention.  How can I read my western if I'm being pestered by keeping the thing going?

Jon, I'll send you $60 for two shirts. Please ship them to Fisher House or Wounded Warriors.
 Any good Veterans group is OK.
I already have more tee shirts than I will ever wear.

Any chance on a radio station change. Would like to hear some classic rock & roll. The country and western music is a little boring.

Jon, I don't know whether you are taking questions today, but can you (or anyone else in the know) tell us a bit about the Mariani streamliner? Is it the same car that currently holds the E/GS and E/FS records? Or a modified version of that car? Or a completely new vehicle?

TIA.

TD, I don't have that information.  I'll try to catch Dennis or one of the crew later and ask.

I hear that the Ack Attack is preparing to make a run soon.  Fire, ambulance, and patrols are moving into place. I've gotta send this so I can make the streaming work again.

Streaming was working again then stopped while you were talking about the FIA officials having a tour.

Thanks for responding.

It shows me that all is working -- I can hear it on the monitor.  I'm getting cranky about this danged thiing.

A bunch of VIP FIA folks out here at the tower right now -- you might hear them in the background.
