OK. So. Team. Something amazing! There is a magical telescope (shh don't tell me how it works, it's magic) that connects London and Brooklyn. I live right next to Brooklyn (if right next means a five minute bike ride, thirty minute train and forty minute subway) and I think that we should organize a wave-off.

Who is London-bound--and for that matter, who is NY-bound--and wants to make a crazy expedition of this? It closes on June 15th, which is soon!

So team. Who is pro-telescope (and pro-MAGIC)? I know I am!

Cutting it close perhaps but on Saturday 14th June I have an exam I'm organising in South Ken, London. It's over at 12 and would only take a little bit of time to get to Tower Bridge.

NYC is 5 hours behind LDN so to be nice I'd suggest a tele-meet would probably have to be about 4pm + UK time and I don't know if you can be heard so you'd need to bring some cue card type devises...

Might be up for it wink.gif

Definitely up for it! I'm not going to be around this weekend, but can do most times after 5pm GMT (well, BST) when I finish work. Yay!

Yo London! June 5th? June 7th? June 9th? June 12th? Let's peek through a telescope at each other!

I can do any of those dates bar the 7th. I have whiteboard and pens at the ready biggrin.gif

Elphaba- when's the best day/ time for you?

The fifth works for me. How does London feel about meeting past 8? I can't get to Brooklyn till 2:30 at the earliest.

Also, we should send them an email full of lies, to bump the line. They describe this thing on the website where if you have a good enough reason, they'll let you cut ahead for a particular time. I think I want to propose to someone---Daria? Spiffi? We should spend our lives together.

Rats, no Smiler! Ah, well. Next time there's an international telescope rolling through town.

OK, so should we plan for arriving at the telescope at 3:30/8:30? I have no clue what the lines will be like, which is a little disconcerting...maybe I can prop up a whiteboard at the bottom of the screen thing that gives amy status (fifteenth in line, sixth in line, next on line) for the london matazins waiting? See, this is where an iPhone would come in handy.

IATB, you should come! Daria and Spiff, I'll see you tomorrow!

Elphaba, if you want to PM me your mobile number, then maaaaybe it might be possible to text you/ each other with status updates. I wonder how much that costs?
*after a while of looking it up*
Apparently I can text to any of these networks: Acc Dobson Cellular (Dobson Cellular)
Airtouch-Paging (Verizon Paging)
Cellular One (Dobson Net)(Dobson Cellular)
Cingular Blue (AT&T Wireless)
Clearnet (Telus Mobility)
Sprint
Telefonica Puerto Rico(Movistar)
Verizon Wireless
for 20p. Which might be useful?

Sprint! I am loath to lose you almost half an american dollar per text, but that is the network I have. Number PM'd--I suppose text me with your place in line and a time estimate when you've arrived at the magical telescope and I will do the same (it only costs me 15c per message--weird. That is cheaper than 411.)

...I can't find a whiteboard. Sharpie and pad will have to do.

Just in case you didn't know/your mobile companies' websites didn't tell you: Daria will need to put 00 1 before elphaba's number, and elphaba will need to put 011 44 before Daria's and omit the zero that Brits put at the beginning of all their phone numbers. So if Daria PMs with her number as 0755555555, elphaba would need to put it in as 011 44 755555555. I wouldn't rely on just getting Daria's number when she texts rather than through a PM ahead of time, because in my experience they get weirdly mangled when texting overseas.

Also, I'm jealous. It costs me 50p to text my sisters in the US!

Really quite odd.
Apologies for rubbishy pictures! and the one at the end is a sculpture we saw on the way home by David Kemp, called The Navigators.

It was fun biggrin.gif

Hehe cool the telescope has a bit of a Steampunk feel going on. I'm guessing that somewhere in the fuzz that was the view through the scope was an Elphaba?
