No JRS so didn't even know about the hoo-haa!

Postby quadraspleen » Mon Jan 30, 2012 5:21 am

Sorry to be (only slightly) off-topic, but I never got the latest JRS, so all of the below has been a supprise - not! - of course everyone registered for two tix..the process has been game-ified; why wouldn't ppl "play" that game? I do the lottery in the UK occasionally, and I always try more than one line, as guess what? It increases my chance of winning!

But seriously, my JRS didn't arrive; it's not in my spam filters (we have access to them - we use webroot) it didn't even get to any of our mail servers..who do I email about this? Obv. concerned that somehow I've been de-listed

My JRS arrived in my email box yesterday. I always seem to get it days after my sister in Arizona does. Weird.

We have the same last name, so it isn't an alphabetical thing. So is it the fact I have a Canadian account? Or maybe Gmail?

I'd be interested in hearing if there's a trend in reception dates on these.......

My understanding is that is it has to travel a longer distance, it may take longer to arrive---like a 10th of a second. But seriously folks, there are literally millions of these going out, and they may have to be done in batches. It's possible that somethng got lost in the delivery, and a batch never went out. If this is a concern, you may want to register another email address, so there will be twice the chance of getting it.

Thank you very much, you've been a great audience! :D

She'll probably be the only one to score tickets from the drawing. Then she'll have to go! What would her playa name be? (birthday girl is not a good one)

Her business is translating books and such...
that opens up a world of possibilities for a Playa name! :D

Actually, I'm liking the sound of "Super Survivor" (or "Sur" for short) at this point...... She's had a pretty hard year battling cancer (FUCK CANCER) but has come thru all the hardships with a smile and humour that's just inspiring!

I just spoke with her husband and she's off at the oncologist's right now for a followup.

....so it'd be cool if all and any birthday wishes for would include a silent prayer for that coming up clean.....

Sorry to hear it, quadraspleen. It does take a few days to go out (many, many batches), and I don't believe it to be a GMail thing (I get it on my GMail account). If someone hasn't already forwarded it to you, PM me with the email address you'd like me to send it to you at.

You can also check the blog post, which has pretty much the same info. You should also be able to subscribe to the blog with whatever newsreader you may use (my browser will let me do that, yours might too).

I still haven't received this apparent JRS - I found out about everything via a link to the blog I caught posted on the Burning Man facebook group. Very odd. I'm also on Gmail/Canadian, so it's probably just random as to who gets it when (or at all ;)

I live in the UK too, and I have the same problem. I have now registered with three email addresses. One of them usually arrives! I have no idea why this happens, but it does.
