Hey Lou (fancy seeing you here!) - I was a bit boggled trying to find my membership number, too, at first. But if you go here: https://www.denvention3.org/wcdb/member_main.php and you do a search on your own last name, then your name and member number and location as registered with Denvention will come up. Looking forward to seeing you at the Convention Center - but of course I'll see you sooner! ;-)

Oh, and by the way... I'm halfway through "Yiddish" and a fourth of the way through "Rollback" and am enjoying one more than the other. I will create a hierarchical list of my preferences and vote that way. I was able to acquire ALL of these from the Arapahoe (Denver) library system, and I'm sure that I'm messing with somebody else's ability to vote by holding these books on my nightstand. Great job John! I'm reading your "Last Colony" next... Lou

Michael Chabon’s book is fifth best obviously, since it's published by luddites. Sheesh, if science fiction publishers are not embracing "new" trends like the internet then what hope can we have for other publishers? Count me under "will read on my liseuse or under protest" these days, since I got my PRS-505 I've read very little print and the great majority of that has been New Scientist magazine with the occasional newspaper making up the rest.

You know, it's people like you that are the reason my book budget gets blown every month. I'm going to have to invent a new category just for you and call it "WorldCon expenses".

If you put city and state, I'll know the country by context. Country is for folks not in North America.

I think this is a wonderful idea! One reason is that it emphases that supporting members can vote for Hugos. A lot of folks don't know that, or if they do, they don't think that a supporting membership is worth the cost. It will be interesting to see if this effort increases the number of supporting memberships sold, and thus the number of votes cast. I already sent in my e-mail. I put my city and state (Maryland) but forgot to say USA. Do I need to resend it just for that? How literally are you enforcing the rule?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! There was recently an amazingly long thread on how to encourage people to vote which, of course, bogged done into minutia. Suggestions that folks do some outreach never gained any traction. At the same time that was going on you were actually doing something about it.

In case this information might be useful for people who want to read these on a Palm- I was able to convert a .rtf file to a .pdb just by reading it into Open Office and then writing it out again in that format. eReader seems to be able to read that .pdb file nicely.

Thank you very much. This makes it much easier to vote... and we're in the category of "Ooh, I liked it, must buy a copy" so it will increase sales, too.
