Sounds like a really 1/2 arsed way to do it. Over the years I have
joined (in minutes!!!) dozens of lists, forums, and various websites
(for such things as online banking, medical prescriptions, auctions,
etc) and never had to have an "MVC" to identify my self.
an MVC works like the CVS on the back of your credit card, and as such can
only really be delivered via US mail or in person, like a pin number.
At least that is the excepted security principle of it, as it will be used
for secure things unlike just a list, like voting.
Sorry, but you really don't understand what's involved... It's not just
giving you access to a site with sheep doing the dirty with cows...
The MVC will be used to validate that a TRA member is really who the TRA
member says he/she is.. For things like voting, and to edit the members
profile on line.
You want your MVC NOW, and that is the whole reason that you won't have your
MVC NOW, as it's they way to really validate who is using your TRA number.
Please post your SSN and visa card number to all forums if you think I'm
wrong, because, trust me, no one would ever misuse your information!!
Do we really have idiots like this in the hobby. Let me know what launches
they attend, and I'll make sure I'm miles away!

Oh and I bet those sites won't register you as Stealth Booger. Is
there a reason that you can't post a real name?
Probably the same reason I am "Tweak".
It is working hours, you know, and a boss that knows just a little would
have a printout of exactly how much time I am wasting should they want
it. Being "Tweak" gives me plausible deniability.
I now who you are - I even know who Shockie is. I can't say the
same for Crany or Booger. If people put what they say in the context
of who they are, what they say will mean more.

Nope, HPR was replaced with Rockets Magazine this winter. The third issue
just shipped on time.
It appear that Tripoli is directing all subscriptions to Liberty Launch
Systems directly this time. Tripoli won't have anything to do with funds
for the magazine anymore.
That's directly at the request of Liberty Launch Systems. The offer was
made for the ability to subscribe at the same time as renewing. LLS
respectively declined, and asked that subscribers be sent directly to them.
Probably a very good thing for Tripoli regardless of which side asked for
it. It didn't help during the HPR fiasco that most of the subscription
money funnelled through Tripoli.
Although, LLS is probably losing lots of subscriptions by not being listed
on the registration forms. A check box on the reg form for a magazine
subscription would probably get checked by lots of folks. Does the
average Tripoli member even know about the new magazine?
No. HPR is dead. I can't tell you the last one of them was
published. I can tell you that it was before all the subscribers got
all their issues. Since it was totally seperated from TRA, those
people had to rely on Bruck Kelly's sense of ethics to receive fair
compensation. My guess is that they are SOL.
TRA has a replacement official magazine - Rockets Magazine
http://www.libertylaunchsystems.com/ They started about 6 months ago.
I've received 2 issues fo far although I've heard roumors that some
have received their third issue. The publishers are active fliers! I
fly with them at MDRA. So far, it's a great magazine.

Bruce Kelly was selling old single use motors at BALLS last year to make
his house payment. I think is safe to say there will be no refunds for
HPR unless Bruce wins the lottery or something.
I suppose someone could file a class action lawsuit against Bruce, but
probably never collect anything unless his estate has money when he
passes. The $ per subscriber wouldn't hardly make it worth it.
I guess you can't read moron - it's " firstname.lastname@example.org"... one of
my (junk) email addresses. Google groups happens to use the email
address as the FROM name.
Secondly we're talking newsgroups here... I'd rather keep the spam and
prying eyes that don't need to know me - away. Maybe if you were smart
enough you'd have been able to search out what DSC stands for.
Thirdly why aren't you complaining - other than the fact you can -
about all the other users who are using a screenname/handle/signature
other than their real name?
DSC - AKA Douglas S Caskey.
