So. New phone handset arrived. Hopefully this is better than the last replacement they sent. Tried to import all my contacts from the SD card. Fail. Tried to update from Sim. Fail. Tried to backup from Google Contacts. Total Fail.


So. One *again* - I need everybody's telephone numbers, please.

Feel free to text me.

Signal boosting the following from gargoyle_addict.

Hi All, I know it's been a while since the original discussion on [info]flannelcat , but I am keen to see this turn into a proper forum (in the classical not necessarily virtual space sense) in which various aspects of the social and ethical implications of our hobby/s can be discussed.

I have been mulling it over since then and have a few ideas, but really want to get people who will want to use it involved in deciding what it should be. I'm not asking for moderation or admin time, but for people to work with me in designing something which will be useful and accessible.

In the interests of honesty, I should also say that I will be bringing my Open Uni 'Systems' * work to the table. This gives me a lot of tools for trying to explore what we want from it and what might work, provided I have input from other interested parties. This is NOT a guinea pig project, however the timing relative to my need for a 3rd year project is convenient. I will not use any comments etc without consent, and then only anonymously.

So anyone interested? I don't want to bias discussion by revealing my initial thoughts yet.

* Systems - ie systems thinking, a multi-disciplinary field which explores complex and problematic situations using holistic methods, particularly useful for people/culture oriented situations where multiple perspectives need to be be explored.

If this is a topic that interests you. (And it generated some interest last time it was raised.) Have a wander over?

Comment here if you know of anything:

I predict a riot!

Firecat Masquerade regularly provides actors for training simulations and scenarios. We currently provide people on a monthly basis to Clarity Security Training, based in Northamptonshire, who run training courses designed to prepare Humanitarian Aid Workers for the realities of field work overseas. We also provide actors for other organizations on an ad-hoc basis, in a variety of locations.

New dates for Security Simulations are out. We're also looking for volunteers to help populate a riot scene.

All the fake blood you can eat, for a great cause.

Interested?: http://www.firecat-masquerade.com/security_simulation_shoutout.html

Please propogate this on your own journal or send the link to people you think may be interested.
Signal Boosting: Firecat Masquerade re still urgently looking to recruit volunteers for our Security Simulations - particularly for the 6th April.

If you or anybody you know is interested in volunteering a day of your time in return for expenses, hostage-taking and all the fake blood that you can eat, please get in touch.

Feel free to share this link widely. - http://www.firecat-masquerade.com/security_simulation_shoutout.html
