    I wouldn't worry too much. I've only known one journalist well, and that
    was because others I've met have often been so busy finding their next
    story. It's the nature of their work. Something about affording luxuries
    like eating and living indoors factors in.
    I sent her a plot I'd made of the early FengYun debris from 27 January
    2007. I'd indicated that this was background data so she'd have some
    context on how much material was released, and even that didn't do it
    justice. I could show fewer than a thousand of the known pieces due to
    limitations of my computer. At that time, things were confined to just a
    little bit outside of the original orbital plane.
    FengYun's demise is what gave me more motivation to finish out the
    orbital plane surveillance tool I am writing. Originally it was to try
    to recover TiPS. It's still not debugged completely, but when we go on
    Daylight Savings Time here in the U.S. I will be able to make more
    observations to test it against. It's a web service at the moment, but
    eventually I'll turn its engine loose.
