Nothing Like A Zesty Holiday Party To Stir The Punch Bowl Slowly

Hi Scott—trust the rush of the holiday season has effectively passed, and you are now well-grounded in the new year. I'm somewhat surprised that I haven't heard from you since the CHAMPS holiday party, a sales pitch, a newsletter, or something along normal lines of community outreach.

Does this mean that CHAMPS doesn't exactly view Graphic Solutions Ink Systems as a perfect fit, or has your workload simply been such that we're still on that Scott Sanger list of things to do?

In any case, I'm just re-establishing contact. Of course, I'm less enthusiastic that I am actually filling a genuine gap what with GCS just down the street, but I did talk with those guys (both Brad Johnson & his partner whose name I seemed to have misplaced) over the phone, and in fact, just to show you I'm as guilty of the same slack as I'm zestfully accusing you, I have been meaning to touch base again with them.

Anyway. Give me a shout. I am still interested in becoming a dues-paying member in 1999, getting our business recognized on the CHAMP website, and generally pulling our weight. Please let me know how to proceed.

Tomorrow's Mixer On Capitol Hill

07 Dec


The Mixer


Date: Mon Dec 7, 1998 12:43:56 PM


We enjoyed meeting with you last week, and were encouraged beyond our expectations by the challenges and rewards of working more closely with the Capitol Hill community in the approaching new year. On the heels of another few days of server hardware and subsequent software upgrades, I'm back into the saddle so to speak, and wanted to at least touch base with you. There was one thing I forgot to mention the other evening. We have a small network of older but quite functional Macintosh computers and a laser printer we'd like to donate to a local cause. Perhaps your presence on the Hill has given you a better idea of where we might find a worthy home for these machines. Capitol Hill Ministry, ANC 6B, and the Seventh Street Library come to mind...

Ideally, we would set up the network (or keep them single workstations), and boot them with functional software focussing on word processing and desktop publishing. All 3 Macintoshes can be configured to handle Email, and one is powerful enough for robust Internet-browsing, although extra hardware and of course Internet access would be required.

Perhaps we can discuss this matter more in depth later.

Of course we look forward to tomorrow night's mixer. Could you please refresh my memory with the address of the Bank building in which guests will be gathering?

Thanks again!
