Confused or what? I heard this in Church last Sunday and immediately thought of the 1911 forum. The quote is from a man named Lewis B Smedes, I assume a writer. “ Waiting is our destiny. As creatures who cannot by themselves bring about what they hope for; we wait in the darkness for a flame we cannot light. We wait in fear for a happy ending we cannot write. We wait for a ‘ not yet ‘ that feels like a ‘ not ever’. Mike

It will continue to be beaten until everyone has their number.


I won’t be surprised if it doesn’t get worse before it gets better actually.

All of this matters how?

I feel no need to be concerned about the man behind the curtain.

It will be fine. Remain calm.

You might want to buy a dozen or so.

It took less than a second to generate 1,000 numbers. so what would be in it for the CMP to do this?
I know you disagree with me. You are probably the most vocal person on here that everyone needs to shut up and listen to your opinion on every thread you post in.
Yes, it only takes seconds to actually run the numbers, but it doesn't take seconds to log all of the names in the generator, run it, and then sift through all packets to find each person in the newly generated order. It is much faster (and time is of the essence for CMP as we all know) for them to grab one packet at a time and assign it a number, even if not nearly as fair. I could be totally wrong, but the circumstances of how this was all done seem very fishy to me. That said, I really don't care anymore and I am not going to discuss it any longer.

You're not wrong! I already stated that I had mine in an earlier post in this thread. I am very grateful that I got mine but definitely sympathize with those still unsure of where they stand, such as my brother.
