Jim, you are awesome to do this! I was going to volunteer, but I don't have enuff discs-es to do it! Thanks for helping out, and enjoy the 4th here in Okie-land! Going to Eu-fala for the next 2 daze, and listen to Quadio on my buddy's 5.1 system for the first time.

Wish I would have thought of that before I started the vine on it’s way. I didn’t realize this would be so popular. I did notice the crazy globe hoping coming but I figured it was just unavoidable with the new system.

 

As Chris has already sent a set to Europe I volunteer to send out a second US vine. To avoid confusion I’ll post messages for both legs of the vine clearly marking them as US and Euro-UK. I think I can separate out the existing list of viners.

This idea makes a lot of sense to me...

I wasn't wrong in '76, but graduated high school - does that count?

How about the person who starts the vine waits till there is a list of people who want it. ( say waiting 4 or 5 days before starting it)

Then the vine starter cuts and pastes the list to make it geographically sensible.

 

Once it's in motion other people can add their names and OK it may eventually do some pond hoping. 

But at least it starts out efficiently.

Whatever you guys wish, I suppose. But part of the vine system we employ makes searching for them easier and I feel that splitting them will make that end more confusing.

Whatever...

I think at this point all we can do is learn how to things differently in the future.

 

As a possible model for future vines of this sort: When I receive the vine, I could burn two (2) sets, and then send one to the next EU\UK recipient and one to the next US recipient. And we just send them in the order listed disregarding those not in the country the vine is traveling in.

i.e. those in the US disregard all EU\UK recipients, and those in the latter afore mentioned disregard all US recipients.

Well...

I'm not one to complicate things and, tho I can see some of the efficiencies mentioned in this thread regarding vines crossing the pond, I think having two branches for every vine will end up complicating the system. My opinion is that a single vine is easier to track, and easier to search. I guess I'd rather see single vines where an occasional shuffling of names occurs (with the agreement of the participants, of course).

As this vine is already enroute to Europe, it does make a bit of sense to have it make the rounds a bit there. The vinage as posted lately is:

 

Chris US << Bart << mr. skull << Richard-UK << Milhouse-US << white rabbitt-US << Nick Ullmann-UK << Scott Burnett - US << Joseph-US [EMAIL PROTECTED] << Guy-US  [EMAIL PROTECTED] <<

 

With the vine on it's way to Bart, and if all are amenable, it could be amended to:

 

Bart << mr. skull << Richard-UK << Nick Ullmann-UK << Milhouse-US << white rabbitt-US << Scott Burnett - US << Joseph-US [EMAIL PROTECTED] << Guy-US [EMAIL PROTECTED] <<

 

This is merely a suggestion; it's really something the vine participants need to decide for themselves...

My 2 cents,

SOFA
