Works for me. I'll just move everything down a week.

EDIT: ON second thought, that has the potential to be mind-blowingly confusing if we get a lot of subs in the future. I'll just write you in for me and leave the schedule as is.

Unless you think you have time enough to sub for a few monthso. Then I can sort of plan you in ahead.

EDIT 2: Did you mean the week of June 10-16 or next week? OD's got next week if you were thinking of subbing for him.

Either way, thanks for stepping in again.

I mean this week, 10-16th.

And yeah, I could sub out for the summer. Until the end of September.

This would be nice. My status in the Top 3 of EmP's year-long RotW placement contest would take a huge blow if I was ineligible a third of the weeks as opposed to a fourth of them. So having someone taking a week, even if just for a little while, would do good for my ego.

Which is all that matters to me.

Thanks, Zipp. I'll schedule you in until the end of September. If anything comes up, I'll try to work around it. Or come back to the current arrangement.

Thanks again.

The only change I'd ask is if I could switch weeks with you in August, Wolf. I'll be in New York for the week I'm scheduled and I'd be late with the ROTW.

One would like to state that the late RotW for this week is not one that is my responsibility.

One would like that to be noted, as it is not often that one gets the opportunity to razz others for being later than one usually is.

Haha. Shit. Sorry. I've been really busy this week and totally forgot about this. In any case, I'm really busy today as well so might not be able to do it until tomorrow.

NOTICE:

This is my week to get this done. I haven't done so yet. The storms that came through the area last Friday took out my home electricity until Tuesday morning AND I still don't have home internet (or cable, or phone).

Which means that for me to do it, it'll have to wait until/if I get free time at work OR everything comes back on at home. So if there's any volunteer/reserve RotW people who want to fill in for this one, that'd be great. If not, it'll be up...sometime.

That's what you get for talking smack to WQ last week! And no, I can't step in to be your replacement. This week got real busy for me real fast...

That's for the period from June 24 - June 30th, Jerec. I just want to make sure you know exactly what it is. Joe is doing this next week. If you're happy to step into that, thanks and I look forward to the topic!

Yep, got the dates right. I had a look at the first post to make sure. Should be up in the afternoon sometime (that's in Australian time, so the middle of the night, the previous day?)

No problem, Overdrive. I don't mind doing RotW occasionally. I think it's the first time I did it in about a year.

Just telling y'all I haven't forgotten about this week's ROTW. It will be out tonight. I have to finish proofing Tom Sawyer for a new publication of the classic this week, so I've just been pouring a lot of time into that.

Hey. I know it's kind of late notice, but I lost track of time. IF anyone wants to take over my week, please do so. I'm not going to be around much in the coming weeks because it's too damn hot in my apartment, so I won't be around very much to do this. If no one takes over, mine will just be phenomenally late.

Thanks.

Mine's a smidge late (r than normal) this week. Been getting caught up on reviews I need to finish (one awaiting Jason's approval; the other just submitted), so I should do it tomorrow.

We at Overdrive Ltd. thank you for your patience. Or at least we say we are thanking you in order to sound polite. Whether any thanks is actually felt or not is up in the air.

Isn't it Joe going this week, or am I all confused?

It better be me, since I just finished it. And better for Joe, since he can't place if he does it and I have him placing!

No. OD was right to do it this week. He did 07 to 13. Joe has this current week now, 14 to 20.

Does anyone want to be a judge for Review of the Week? I'm asking because, frankly, I'm starting to feel like I can't handle this anymore. The last few months I've been busier than I thought I'd be (yes, I know I've been saying this for years, but it never seems to get better. Though currently in my life I can't complain about that because I'm really quite happy, but it also means I can only do so much with what time I do have). Anyway, the point is, because of this, I've been annoyingly late with my RotWs, and I'm tired of being a hypocrite in my own topic. So I'm offering to someone else now who would like to replace me so that I can step down and not shame everyone doing this thing.

I've also felt like I haven't been doing as good a job at these things as I should, or perhaps not as fair to people. I don't know; maybe I'm fine with that or the people being judged are fine with that, but I personally am not fine with myself to feel comfortable doing this anymore. I find that I've been rushed with these things lately, so I don't know if I'm putting quite my best effort or judgment into them anymore as I once did.

So if anyone wants to handle this role, I would greatly appreciate it. Even if they just want to judge, that's fine; I can still make the schedules and everything. But as far as actually reading the reviews and picking winners... I'm not sure I'm in a place to do that anymore. Maybe one day when / if things become more... balanced as far as internet stuff goes, I can step back into it, but until then, I'd rather step aside.

It has been fun while I've done it, but I really am trying to make the best decision here.

Thanks everyone for making this possible for me and yourselves, and especially thanks to my other two judges, and the others I've had in the past for keeping this alive.

EDIT: Please note that I will not step down if no one will or can replace me. I'm not having Joe and OD do this by themselves; it's too much work.
