Murphy's Moment
By Jim Babka

Quotes of the Day:

"Murphy is my co-pilot." - Steve Dasbach, co-founder,

"No battle plan survives contact with the enemy." - Helmuth von Moltke, German Field Marshal

Dear Subscriber,

Today was to be the planned launch of the first phase of the new Zero Aggression Project website. Alas, even though we tested earlier in the week, and everything looked fine, a system conflict has cropped up at the last minute.

It's called Murphy's Law. If anything can go wrong, it will. Like Mr. Dasbach above, we've learned to embrace it.

This problem is taking us a bit longer to fix than we anticipated. And past experience has taught us that announcements should be made on weekdays, during the AM hours. So...

The Zero Aggression website will launch Monday, February 3. Subscribers to the Consent Chronicle will notice other changes as well.

We only have one chance to make a first impression. Those who've helped us test the site have loved the new heuristics. I'm positive it's worth the small, additional wait.

Besides, Monday is a better day to launch!
