Re: Recruiting expertise for NewMars Forum topics:

The NewMarsMember * gmail.com portal is open for business.

There was/were no incoming traffic item(s) at the Portal this morning. No outgoing message(s) was/were sent.

I am looking for new members who are blessed with enough time and energy to participate for some time into the future.

We have extended an invitation to members of the North Houston chapter of National Space Society to help RobertDyck with his preparations for the Large Ship presentation on March 12th.  Just drop a note to the portal address given in the first line above.
***
The next Zoom meeting(s) is/are scheduled for (next) Sunday.  We will be using the Professional Mars Society account.
Note: The Mars Society Zoom account is reserved for 7 PM Pacific Time on the Second Sunday of each month.

Time for early meeting: 19:00 UTC <<== No host is booked. If you would like to see this meeting in action, say so.

Time for project meeting: To be determined as needed

Time for later meeting: 1:00 UTC Monday <<== kbd512 is host for this event. This is an all-subjects open meeting.

The first Zoom meeting for NewMars members was held Monday November 8th, 2021 at 1 AM UTC.  It lasted for well over 4 hours.

To find current UTC, use time.is/UTC

***
There are nearly 8 billion people on Earth these days, and several billion have access to the Internet.  This forum is accessible to ** every ** Earth citizen with Internet access.  We ** know ** the site is of interest to spammers! Hopefully it is of interest to others who want to use their time more productively. 

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

***

We have 11,050 freshly refurbished User Id's ready for new members, and Id's through  18,344 are waiting for finishing touches.  We have run out of Usernames that may be eligible for upgrade for use by "real" members. We are halfway through a campaign to repair posts that contain artifacts that prevent proper display.  Scan of 77,000 posts out of 77,000 were completed and the end point was found. Procedures to revise posts containing unneeded text are in place.  Code to perform updates is finished and tested. It is waiting for final approval.

Approval to proceed IS granted, the project will resume in December, 2021. 

Equipment to be used for the update series was tested and found ready to begin work on December 1st. The process will last through July of 2022 and well into August.  Posts 1-13200 have been updated.

We have multiple initiatives underway that can use assistance, or you can create your own initiative.

The author of a concept for a 17 person expedition to Mars has specifically requested participation by peers to help.

A proposal for an 8 member expedition is in review.

RobertDyck could use assistance of all kinds in development of the Large Ship proposal. There are three animation/drawing systems in play.
Fusion 360 is a version of commercial software by AutoDesk that is available for student non-commercial use. It requires a beefy computer.
Blender is a free animation package that includes drawing capability. 

The Large Ship project may stimulate spinoff activities, such as a full scale greenhouse in LEO built to Large Ship specifications.

Large Ship has split into two versions. The original is a single rotating passenger vessel. The competitor is a counter rotating design.

The My Hacienda topic is in need of 7,800 individuals to populate a virtual community to simulate self-sustainability on Mars

The subject of abundant energy supply for the population of Earth (and Mars in due time) is under discussion in the Nuclear Power is Safe topic.  It seems reasonable (to me at least) to suppose all fossil fuel power stations can be replaced with modular nuclear fission packages quite rapidly if the people of Earth decide that is a good idea.  It appears the leadership of China thinks that is a good idea for their nation.

A book was recommended for discussion: Beyond Oil and Gas: The Methanol Economy by Olah, Goeppert and Prakash
Abundant energy from modular fission reactors is continuing to receive attention.

A book was recommended for discussion: "Plentiful Energy" (about fission reactors).

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

For existing registered members who have lost your password ... If you remember the email address you used to register, you can request a recovery email at that address.  If you no longer have the email available (as could happen over 20+ years) just write to this email address. Your request will be forwarded to SpaceNut, who has the tools available to assist as needed.

For all ... we really ** are ** looking for members who want to make a difference by helping others with projects, or providing leadership on new projects.  We have a ready supply of folks who can and will make comments and offer suggestions.  We don't need more folks in that specialty.  We ** do ** need folks who can and ** will ** help project leaders already trying to achieve something in the real world.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

I am looking for new members who are blessed with enough time and energy to participate for some time into the future.

We have extended an invitation to members of the North Houston chapter of National Space Society to help RobertDyck with his preparations for the Large Ship presentation on March 12th.  Just drop a note to the portal address given in the first line above.
***
The next Zoom meeting(s) is/are scheduled for (Next) Sunday.  We will be using the Professional Mars Society account.
Note: The Mars Society Zoom account is reserved for 7 PM Pacific Time on the Second Sunday of each month.

Time for early meeting: 19:00 UTC <<== No host is booked. If you would like to see this meeting in action, say so.

Time for project meeting: To be determined as needed

Time for later meeting: 1:00 UTC Monday <<== kbd512 is host for this event. This is an all-subjects open meeting.

Request: Please try to connect to the Zoom session shortly after it opens, as a courtesy to the host.

The first Zoom meeting for NewMars members was held Monday November 8th, 2021 at 1 AM UTC.  It lasted for well over 4 hours.

To find current UTC, use time.is/UTC

There are nearly 8 billion people on Earth these days, and several billion have access to the Internet.  This forum is accessible to ** every ** Earth citizen with Internet access.  We ** know ** the site is of interest to spammers! Hopefully it is of interest to others who want to use their time more productively. 

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

We have 11,050 freshly refurbished User Id's ready for new members, and Id's through  18,344 are waiting for finishing touches.  We have run out of Usernames that may be eligible for upgrade for use by "real" members. We are halfway through a campaign to repair posts that contain artifacts that prevent proper display.  Scan of 77,000 posts out of 77,000 were completed and the end point was found. Procedures to revise posts containing unneeded text are in place.  Code to perform updates is finished and tested. It is waiting for final approval.

Approval to proceed IS granted, the project will resume in December, 2021. 

Equipment to be used for the update series was tested and found ready to begin work on December 1st. The process will last through July of 2022 and well into August.  Posts 1-15000 have been updated. Current date in repair is 2003/04

We have multiple initiatives underway that can use assistance, or you can create your own initiative.

The author of a concept for a 17 person expedition to Mars has specifically requested participation by peers to help.

A proposal for an 8 member expedition is in review.

RobertDyck could use assistance of all kinds in development of the Large Ship proposal. There are three animation/drawing systems in play.
Fusion 360 is a version of commercial software by AutoDesk that is available for student non-commercial use. It requires a beefy computer.
Blender is a free animation package that includes drawing capability. 

The Large Ship project may stimulate spinoff activities, such as a full scale greenhouse in LEO built to Large Ship specifications.

Large Ship has split into two versions. The original is a single rotating passenger vessel. The competitor is a counter rotating design.

The My Hacienda topic is in need of 7,800 individuals to populate a virtual community to simulate self-sustainability on Mars

The subject of abundant energy supply for the population of Earth (and Mars in due time) is under discussion in the Nuclear Power is Safe topic.  It seems reasonable (to me at least) to suppose all fossil fuel power stations can be replaced with modular nuclear fission packages quite rapidly if the people of Earth decide that is a good idea.  It appears the leadership of China thinks that is a good idea for their nation.

A book was recommended for discussion: Beyond Oil and Gas: The Methanol Economy by Olah, Goeppert and Prakash
Abundant energy from modular fission reactors is continuing to receive attention.

A book was recommended for discussion: "Plentiful Energy" (about fission reactors).

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

For existing registered members who have lost your password ... If you remember the email address you used to register, you can request a recovery email at that address.  If you no longer have the email available (as could happen over 20+ years) just write to this email address. Your request will be forwarded to SpaceNut, who has the tools available to assist as needed.

For all ... we really ** are ** looking for members who want to make a difference by helping others with projects, or providing leadership on new projects.  We have a ready supply of folks who can and will make comments and offer suggestions.  We don't need more folks in that specialty.  We ** do ** need folks who can and ** will ** help project leaders already trying to achieve something in the real world.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Re: Recruiting expertise for NewMars Forum topics:

The NewMarsMember * gmail.com portal is open for business.

There was/were no incoming traffic item(s) at the Portal this morning. One outgoing message(s) was/were sent.

I am looking for new members who are blessed with enough time and energy to participate for some time into the future.

We have extended an invitation to members of the North Houston chapter of National Space Society to help RobertDyck with his preparations for the Large Ship presentation on March 12th.  Just drop a note to the portal address given in the first line above.

GW Johnson has extended an invitation to readers of his ExRocketman blog, to visit NewMars. If anyone is interested in opening an account, just drop a note to the portal.

***
The next Zoom meeting(s) is/are scheduled for (Next) Sunday.  We will be using the Professional Mars Society account.
Note: The Mars Society Zoom account is reserved for 7 PM Pacific Time on the Second Sunday of each month.

Time for early meeting: 19:00 UTC <<== No host is booked. If you would like to see this meeting in action, say so.

Time for project meeting: To be determined as needed

Time for later meeting: 1:00 UTC Monday <<== kbd512 is host for this event. This is an all-subjects open meeting.

Request: Please try to connect to the Zoom session shortly after it opens, as a courtesy to the host.

The first Zoom meeting for NewMars members was held Monday November 8th, 2021 at 1 AM UTC.  It lasted for well over 4 hours.

To find current UTC, use time.is/UTC

***
There are nearly 8 billion people on Earth these days, and several billion have access to the Internet.  This forum is accessible to ** every ** Earth citizen with Internet access.  We ** know ** the site is of interest to spammers! Hopefully it is of interest to others who want to use their time more productively. 

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

We have 11,050 freshly refurbished User Id's ready for new members, and Id's through  18,344 are waiting for finishing touches.  We have run out of Usernames that may be eligible for upgrade for use by "real" members. We are halfway through a campaign to repair posts that contain artifacts that prevent proper display.  Scan of 77,000 posts out of 77,000 were completed and the end point was found. Procedures to revise posts containing unneeded text are in place.  Code to perform updates is finished and tested. It is waiting for final approval.

Approval to proceed IS granted, the project will resume in December, 2021. 

Equipment to be used for the update series was tested and found ready to begin work on December 1st. The process will last through July of 2022 and well into August.  Posts 1-16800 have been updated. Current date in repair is 2003/06.

A new schedule is underway, to scan posts 1-16800 to find any posts missed during the first pass. Current completed post is: 300

We have multiple initiatives underway that can use assistance, or you can create your own initiative.

The author of a concept for a 17 person expedition to Mars has specifically requested participation by peers to help.

A proposal for an 8 member expedition is in review.

RobertDyck could use assistance of all kinds in development of the Large Ship proposal. There are three animation/drawing systems in play.
Fusion 360 is a version of commercial software by AutoDesk that is available for student non-commercial use. It requires a beefy computer.
Blender is a free animation package that includes drawing capability. 

The Large Ship project may stimulate spinoff activities, such as a full scale greenhouse in LEO built to Large Ship specifications.

Large Ship has split into two versions. The original is a single rotating passenger vessel. The competitor is a counter rotating design.

The My Hacienda topic is in need of 7,800 individuals to populate a virtual community to simulate self-sustainability on Mars

The subject of abundant energy supply for the population of Earth (and Mars in due time) is under discussion in the Nuclear Power is Safe topic.  It seems reasonable (to me at least) to suppose all fossil fuel power stations can be replaced with modular nuclear fission packages quite rapidly if the people of Earth decide that is a good idea.  It appears the leadership of China thinks that is a good idea for their nation.

A book was recommended for discussion: Beyond Oil and Gas: The Methanol Economy by Olah, Goeppert and Prakash
Abundant energy from modular fission reactors is continuing to receive attention.

A book was recommended for discussion: "Plentiful Energy" (about fission reactors).

Read Post #2 of this topic for procedures to apply for membership.  Mention specific assistance you wish to provide.

For existing registered members who have lost your password ... If you remember the email address you used to register, you can request a recovery email at that address.  If you no longer have the email available (as could happen over 20+ years) just write to this email address. Your request will be forwarded to SpaceNut, who has the tools available to assist as needed.

For all ... we really ** are ** looking for members who want to make a difference by helping others with projects, or providing leadership on new projects.  We have a ready supply of folks who can and will make comments and offer suggestions.  We don't need more folks in that specialty.  We ** do ** need folks who can and ** will ** help project leaders already trying to achieve something in the real world.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Re: Recruiting expertise for NewMars Forum topics:

For clark re #490

NewMarsMember will post the daily update shortly.  The daily update will reveal that since SpaceNut closed off registrations to spammers, and since the NewMars Portal was opened for new members to apply, or for old ones to renew, we have added five new highly vetted members.

Not ONE of those highly vetted new members is active in the forum. 

My work on the broken posts from 20 years ago has brought me into contact with your posts from that time.  While I admit to a slight cringe when I see one of those posts, for the most part I see a man in his prime, bursting with energy and willing to engage with the personalities of the time.

This ** is ** the Recruiting topic, and I ** do ** run a topic that stays close to the heading set by SpaceNut.

You have as much chance to contribute to the growth of this forum as anyone, and more than many since you've seen so much more that most of us.

We have need of a variety of volunteer contributors, and I ** know ** there are thousands of highly qualified individuals living on Earth right now, who might be willing to help RobertDyck or kbd512 with their ship designs, Terraformer with a variety of initiatives, GW Johnson with his educational offerings, or many other potentials that might arise within the context of this small part of the Mars Society.

Special item for SpaceNut .... while working on the Posts Repair project, I often spend time with individual posts.

This one caught my eye .... the gent appears to live in Texas, and twenty years ago he appears to have been a college student.

Would you like for NewMarsMember to drop him an email?

We have 11,050 freshly refurbished User Id's ready for new members, and Id's through  18,344 are waiting for finishing touches.  We have run out of Usernames that may be eligible for upgrade for use by "real" members. We are halfway through a campaign to repair posts that contain artifacts that prevent proper display.  Scan of 77,000 posts out of 77,000 were completed and the end point was found. Procedures to revise posts containing unneeded text are in place.  Code to perform updates is finished and tested. It is waiting for final approval.

Approval to proceed IS granted, the project will resume in December, 2021. 

Equipment to be used for the update series was tested and found ready to begin work on December 1st. The process will last through July of 2022 and well into August.  Posts 1-18300 have been updated. Current date in repair is 2003/06.

A new schedule is underway, to scan posts 1-16800 to find any posts missed during the first pass. Current completed post is: 1800

We have multiple initiatives underway that can use assistance, or you can create your own initiative.

The author of a concept for a 17 person expedition to Mars has specifically requested participation by peers to help.

A proposal for an 8 member expedition is in review.

RobertDyck could use assistance of all kinds in development of the Large Ship proposal. There are three animation/drawing systems in play.
Fusion 360 is a version of commercial software by AutoDesk that is available for student non-commercial use. It requires a beefy computer.
Blender is a free animation package that includes drawing capability. 

The Large Ship project may stimulate spinoff activities, such as a full scale greenhouse in LEO built to Large Ship specifications.

Large Ship has split into two versions. The original is a single rotating passenger vessel. The competitor is a counter rotating design.

The My Hacienda topic is in need of 7,800 individuals to populate a virtual community to simulate self-sustainability on Mars

The subject of abundant energy supply for the population of Earth (and Mars in due time) is under discussion in the Nuclear Power is Safe topic.  It seems reasonable (to me at least) to suppose all fossil fuel power stations can be replaced with modular nuclear fission packages quite rapidly if the people of Earth decide that is a good idea.  It appears the leadership of China thinks that is a good idea for their nation.

A book was recommended for discussion: Beyond Oil and Gas: The Methanol Economy by Olah, Goeppert and Prakash
Abundant energy from modular fission reactors is continuing to receive attention.

A book was recommended for discussion: "Plentiful Energy" (about fission reactors).
