    Thank you EVERYONE who has helped.
    Living in Australia makes it so hard to get --up to the minute--news.
    MJJC filled that gap so well.

    Yes, thanks to all of the volunteers. The work must not have been very easy. Since I joined this forum shortly after Michael's death I have been so impressed by the dedication shown here to protect and fight for Michael and I know that existed way before that horrible day. I would like to think that Michael is somewhere witnessing all this and is impressed and touched by your dedication as well.

    Thank you guys for all of your hardwork...if not for you all...on the days that I had to work and missed parts of this trial....I never would of known what was going on if not for your summaries. as we all know Flannigan and chernoff were NOT easy to follow. So again I say thank you all so much,

    I just finished translating the closing arguments, I feel very exhausted now and emotionally drained. The translators heard everything at least twice and couldn't just look away when it got too much. And I'm sure most didn't have time to talk about what they heard, sometimes I felt like I was about to explode ...

    I did complain a bit, but as I told you, that's a Viennese trait and I can't help it.

    I am nothing if not impressed with the job the volunteers did in covering this trial for MJJC. I cannot comprehend the work it took to take and transcribe the notes and get them posted so quickly. Your summaries are a treasure trove of information. And it must have been so difficult to listen and still stay focused on note taking. All I can say is:

    thanks Ivy for this thread ! And a big big thank you to you Ivy and all the staff at MJJC , for making it happen .

    And special thanks to the translators, that was probably the hardest thing to do ! Translating can be very difficult, especially here when you have to be very precise , if you don't want to mis state what someone is saying. And I'm still wondering how you dealt with the Chernoff, and especially the Flanagan language, that's already hard to understand in English...

    As for me , I didn't want to commit myself in the beginning, I was seriously considering helping translate to French, but I was not sure if my work schedule would allow me to do it , and I had a surgical procedure scheduled the first week of october. I was in a hopsital for 3 days, then off work at home for another 2 weeks. I was not sure how fit I would be after the procedure, so i didn't want to promise things if I was not able to do them.
    And Ben has been doing a great job in French, it didn't look like he/she needed any help at all !

    Si I just started to take notes , I think it was a day when Elusive could not do it, and kept taking notes every time I was able to watch the trial live. I found out it was very therapeutic, it really helped me focus on what the witnesses were saying, and keep the emotional stuff from being too overwhelming.

    So I'm really glad it helped, and I wish had started earlier. Everyone on this board has been very very helpful for the past 2 years, it was the last I could do, and I'm happy to give back a little.


    this a thank you thread , so a big thank you to all the people Ivy mentionned , the staff at MJJC, and also to the members of this board. You have all been amazing , your comments about the case helped understand the things we were hearing, and the emotional support has been fantastic.

    Yeah taking notes is totally theraputic bouee. the first day of the trial i couldnt do notes as everything was just a shock. that picture that audio. everything. But it helped me get through each day typing as u are trying to type asap to keep up so what u are hearing and who u are hearing it about doesnt have time to sink in. it was far easier for me than just sitting listening to it as then u have to much time to think and process what u are hearing which isnt a good thing so in helping myself im glad i could help others.

    I remember being on this board during the 2005 trial - what you did then was so amazing. It was probably one of the only sources of unbiased reporting and just plain truth of what was going on. Everything I knew about the trial I read in this board.

    So when Murray's trial was about to start I really wanted to be a part of this - and help others with what I can, like you helped me. As other people have said here so well - I wanted to give back.

    I want to thank everyone for making this past month bearable. It really felt like a big family - everyone helping with what they can. thanks to all those who took notes, twitted did summaries. You are all amazing. It's been a privilege to be a part of this.
