About me

Occupation Owner of a New Age store
Location Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States
Introduction I am a Quixtar Distributor. I used to have New Age Store, but had to close it. Watch this space for information on a possible online incarnation, which is still pending at this point. Because I have a great interest in crafts, I am applying the craft metaphor to my life, which I seriously need to rebuild.
Interests Cross Stitch, Crochet, Beading, Science Fiction/Fantasy, Role Playing Games
Favorite Music Bat Out of Hell(I&II) by Meat Loaf, Pilgrim Heart by Krishna Das, Songs for the Night Sky by Emerald Rose, Roll the Bones by Rush, "Rocket Ride" by Tom Smith
Favorite Books Vorkosigan series by Lois McMaster Bujold, Steerswoman series by Rosemary Kirstein, The Blind Watchmaker by Richard Dawkins

You've got to make contact with the alien leader. How will you tell when the conversation is finished?

Well, I suppose it's obvious if one side cuts off contact or moves away from the discussion. If possible, I'd define signals for things like "your turn" or "that's the end of the conversation" before doing anything else. What that signal would be depends on whether the conversation is by electronic transmission (i.e. radio/video) or in person, and if in person on the anatomy of the participants.
