You reckon? I'm not sure, it's very likely that he actually did get my 2 requests via mail and is either too busy or doesn't care much. I mean he's probably getting dozens of requests on a daily basis anyways. I don't want to look too annoying if I'd send in a fax now, that's like requesting it for the 3rd time :(


Either he would care, and didn't see/get your note, or he's too busy, OR he doesn't give a shit anyway. In the first case he might finally see/get it, and in the latter cases he'll ignore your third request as well anyway.

Well, how about we just change the name (to protect the innocent and the guilty) and send them to Prof Martin Rees.

Dear Bernhard,

A belated "Thanks" for your inquiry, but I do not currently have the luxury of time to participate. My pre-committed writing projects exceed the time I have to give them.

Good luck nonetheless in your important mission.

I'm closing the thread then and moving all questions to "Astronomy".
