Message 00228: Re: ecfr

let me get over my ecfr fundraising first. :) in any case, you have a foia request in for the ssa dmf, so let's let the clock tick for 20 days. if we do raise money for the dmf (I'm thinking metaweb might put some cash in for that), having a foia in hand helps establish that we tried.

sound like a plan?

Yeah, we'll probably be required by law to buy the $6900 version so
that we can get the applicable updates. But if you think you can raise
the money, I'd love to do that.

exciting stuff. I put in a FOIA request for NCOA ($5000) and SSA DMF
($1725) but I worry that they'll find an excuse to make me pay...

usps ncoa? good luck. btw, they included a shrinkwrap license agreement in one of their mailings to me, so we should assume we're under a EULA (but, if
we extract facts, we are ok).

for ssa dmf, why don't we just buy it and open source it? it is fairly cheap. but, are you sure you don't need the $6,900 product? You also understand that you would be required by law to apply the weekly updates?
