Nov. 27, 2018: 
  • Staff JpF gets cell phone; Joe Greblo mentioned the possibility; the impossible has happened.  
  • Also faster office Internet has been installed.   
  • Advanced PP of  Scott Wise.    
  • The 2016 income tax return was filed; progress for the 2017 report is being made.   When caught up with tax reports, then PPs will receive more attention and certifications will be processed faster.
  • First bus-service decline occurred for a Wing-5 mimic; lessons learned:  cut profile for waiting; look normal; be dressed normally and in gray; have pack pleasant color perhaps same as clothes to lower visual impact; do not be moving around when bus arrives; have pack behind body until bus stops. Maybe aim for two smaller packs plus one taller-thinner pack ... mimic travel luggage perhaps; maybe have leaflet  for driver showing wing.  

Nov. 21, 2018, Wednesday     New launch: Spectrum for Internet and voice.

Nov. 9, 2018:   
  • ATT outage for Internet is lasting now for five days. Not connected throughout 24 hr of today. It may be time to switch to Spectrum.  And build FTP system for CSULA.
  • Took off "Reinstatement Fee."  Saved text locally. The low need for the policy resulted in the staff voting against having the text up for the public.
  • Drop "Full List." Keep only the segmented A-Z "Family Name" alphabetized lists.  A full list will be too cumbersome. 
  • Changed front index page: deleted link to reinstatement matter, took off "S-SA" leaving just "Otto" for that rating. Added: "Pending Data Input".
    • The domain of ratings certified by USHGRS is: 
      H0, H1, H2, H3, H4, HGP, Otto
      and specials skills, or "Pending Data Input"
