There is one attendee who would like to take a piece of the wrought iron fence that surrounds the world headquarters of Delta Air Lines and transport it on the flight home, as the fence includes the Delta Air Lines “widget” on each section.

(Just try saying that five times fast!)
“That five times fast”...

...or did you want for me to say “That that that that that”?

Either way, that should fulfill your request, but with regards to what you posted and I quoted, all I have to say is “amateur”:

Read them carefully. They do make sense.

Can you tell we are going to have a great time at this event?

Anyway, amongst other things, back to organizing this event for me, as there is still a lot to do before October, including getting our dinner venues confirmed...

Did someone say food?


We could use a wrought iron fence along the back of our patio. Does DL have any excess fencing?

Perhaps a suggestion for the Museum Store?

We are going to give one of our posters the gate? Isn't that a moderation matter which should not be discussed in public?

To tune a process, you need to adjust the bias as well as the gain.

Oy vey! And to think, I do not even like 420, it just seemed like an opportunity for a good yuck!

420 is a lousy FICO score.

On the other hand, I was quite satisfied when I scored it on my IQ test.

I didn't realize that IQ tests were that old.

Trivia Time

This thread was the pre-cursor to how the event evolved to what it is today.

Including you, we currently have 24 potential attendees on the waitlist.

This is not good news if you want to attend the events on Friday, October 22, 2010, as there is only one opening for the Operations Control Center. Otherwise, that day is completely full.

However, we currently have the following slots still open as of the time this was posted:

Delta Executive Engagement — 6 slots left open
Lunch Sponsored by Delta — 5 slots left open
Delta Heritage Museum — 11 slots left open
Delta Operations Control — 1 slot left open
Delta Technical Operation — Completely full with no slots open
ATL Fire Station Tours — 22 slots left open
Road Warrior Training I — 39 slots left open
Road Warrior Training II — 80 slots left open

As of now, anyone who is on the waitlist that wants to attend one or both Road Warrior Trainings will be able to attend them with no problem, while only the first 11 waitlisted people who want to attend the Delta Heritage Museum will have first choice.

We are still working on the number of attendees that can attend the dinners on all three nights, as we want for everyone to be able to attend. Please stay tuned...

Other venues are still in the planning stages and will be announced once confirmed.

Note — Those who are on the waitlist will still be required to pay the $95.00 registration fee once they are confirmed, as that covers the technology for www.atldo.com, printed materials, etc. even though some venues are now completely full.
