Re: new: Request from HBPPM
Include Original: Yes/No
hi, we're crazy busy right now, and as the person who would be responsible
for following this up, i'm in no condition to move on it, since i just got
out of the hospital after 20 days (it's a long story). i just wanted to
email you to say that i do support this application, and can help you get
setup, however it may take me a week or so to regain my strength, and go
through the necessary (administrative/collective) procedures. as the
primary co-ordinator of the hacktivism.tao project, i'm also planning on
doing a number of upgrades and improvements over the next month. so i will
definitely be in touch, and only ask for a bit of patience as my health
improves. if you don't hear from me personally in the next week to 10
days, please email me directly to remind me, and i'll be sure to get
things moving for you. sorry for any inconvenience, and i hope all is well
with you and yours
