Subject: Picking up KS36000 Seismometers

> Hi all --
> I spoke this morning with Charles Patton and Dr. Hutt.  Sorry to be the
> bearer of bad tidings.  Due to the large number of requests (90 as of this
> writing), Dr. Hutt has been forced to limit the number of seismometers to
> seven for the entire PSN.  Here is the list of PSNers requesting
> seismometers, along with the number requested and where they stand in Dr.
> Hutt's overall list of requesters.  Dr. Hutt called after sending the list
> via email and asked that people be allotted only one each, and that they
> not be allowed to request one for a friend.  Dr. Hutt's email to me is
> referenced at the end of this message.  If anyone has been left out, I
> apologize, but please let me know ASAP.
